Very nice steaks

This place has a great atmosphere and the best steaks I have had in a while. The services was impeccable although a bit slow. Good choice for steaks.

I've been there with my husband for dinner in order to celebrate my birthday. It was a Monday, and Varanda was one of the few good restaurants open in this week day. The couvert was one of the best, with olives, rostbeaf, the BEST pão de queijo ( the popular brazilian cheese bread), many diferents bread and two sorts of... More

I was dinning in this restaurant my Christmas Eve dinner. There was a pre-defined 3 courses menu for this event but I had requested a children menu for my kids, when I reserved. They told me that there was only that menu and the kids would be charged half but they would had to eat the same. After one hour... More

An upmarket grill, its steaks are beautifully succulent and cooked to perfection. There is also a ( small) menu of other dishes. The wine list is extensive, ranging from the mouth-watering to the eye-watering. Service was extremely attentive without being invasive. My only complaint was that I ordered some vegetables with my steak; the menu did not say, and I... More

All three of us had the Ribeye, one New York and two Argentinian varieties. The steak was out of this world, cooked to perfection and seasoned only with a pinch of salt. It tasted so good none of us dared to adulterate the flavour with chimichurri, mustard or anything else. Highly recommend this place and plus wine, sides and salad... More

Excellent restuarant to eat meat, either it is a Steak , Brazilian meat, Argentina meat, with lots of excellent sidders (try the Brazilian rice and special farofia ). We didn't go for desserts, but they have many and with a great variety (Petit gateaux, crepe, lots and lots...). Pricy but excellent! !!!

The sign said “English spoken” but I was the only one speaking it clearly. There well all kinds of mix ups as I ordered, but when the food finally came the salad was acceptable and the entrecote absolutely delicious. The bill turned out to be a bit steep, but all in all it was worth it, given the quality of... More

How could the best steak house in São Paulo have not the Brazilian favorite cut? That was very disappointing! They said they had just the cut for two people - come on! If they have for 2 they should have for 1... The place is still very good and the steaks are really well done! Good choices of side dishes... More

Staying in Jardins

Neighborhood Profile
Jardins
Located just below important Paulista Avenue, Jardins is the junction of four smaller neighborhoods: Jardim Paulista, Jardim América, Jardim Europa and Jardim Paulistano. It is an upper-class area, offering a variety of things to do, including shopping, museums and parks. The neighborhood is well known for “Oscar Freire”– the most luxurious street in the city, packed with high-end boutiques. In Jardins you will also find a trendy museum, São Paulo Museum of Image and Sound (MIS), which people often line up for hours to visit. If green space is what you're after, take time to relax at Trianon Park, a refuge in the heart of Paulista Avenue.
