Much hyped and a fancy interior, but ultimately a little disappointing. We had a variety of cuts around the table - the porterhouse was a little tough perhaps, the sliced picanha special good but not spectacular and actually the best one around the table was the Brazilian flank. Decent enough desserts. Service efficient within being very charming, although the sommelier... More

Had the picanha beef, Brazilian rice, salad and fried mandioca. Everything was gorgeous. Asked for the beef medium-rare and it was the best medium-rare that I'd had in a long time. The waiters were very helpful and friendly. The waiters manager even spoke English and was great fun. Had a few caipirinhas which were awesome. It was a bit pricy... More

Varanda is a good choice . You can find rare and multicultural meats cuts. The service is perfect and spoke english. Price is fair and the ambience is essencialy residents . Try "caipirinha" made with "Espirito de Minas", with no sugar, for a drink. For meal, brazilian cut called "picanha" rare point, and side dishes fried banana, palmito, fried mandioca... More

The steaks are superb, the service is attentive but not intrusive, the wine list first-class, and the price is actually lower than some of the wannabe competitors. I will be back every time I need to hold a business lunch in SP.

This is not a place for quantity food. The touch is the quality of the meat, that comes from farms owned by the same restauranteur. There are many american, argentinian and brazilian cuts, along with excellent side dishes. If you are up to the couvert, don´t exagerate the side dishes, Some of the cuts are huge, you can share, some... More

Here is the place that you will certainly eat one of the best steaks in São Paulo. The service is excellent and the place is very fancy, but you do not think that will be cheap!!

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.
