The quality of the meat and the service is fantastic, I had a medium porter-house that was magnificent. They side dishes are good, the Farofa that came with my dish was fabulous. The wine list can be another attractive. Only "but" is that this is a pricy restaurant, you can end-up payin 100 USD per person.

This restaurant is inside jk iguatemi shopping mall.the shopping mall itself is nice with some luxury brands, we arrived 7.30 it was almost full .tried their churrasco,tartar beef, ribeye and sirloin steak, Everything is delicious,the beef is very tender and marinated. Their service is impeccable. Price is similar to western Europe but it worth the price,because of their quality, recommended.

This review comes in very late, as I was not actively reviewing at the time when I visited the restaurant during a conference trip in Feb 2013. I had already had excellent beef in Sao Paulo at earlier occasions, and I visited Varanda Grill based on a recommendation from a business contact. I made a slight mistake when leaving my... More

How anyone can criticise this superb restaurant is beyond me....the meat is beyond belief, had a taster menu of beef, lamb and Pork and it all just melted in the mouth. Fantastic service and superb caipirina's .... Just don't have too many before hitting the shops !

If you are a meat fan, Varanda is definitely a restaurant worth visiting. With special cuts from different regions and countries, this is definitely one of the best, if not THE best meat reastaurant in SP. However, if eating red meat is not your favourite meal, I wouldn't recommend it, as there are not many alternative options in the menu.

Beautiful people, a nice atmosphere. But the food I cannot describe. One of my favorite restaurants, the kobi beef is delicious, the appetizers and everything else is too. The potatoes, the farofa... Simply yummy! Crazy expensive though...

We went to Varanda with a small group for a business dinner. Expectations were high - this place claims that it was continuously getting awards for best meat several years in a row. What can I say? You can not get bad meat in Brazil. Was it any better than in Fogo do Chao or Barbacoa? Definitely, not. But service... More

Argentinian steakhouses have proliferated throughout the world. Most are sad pastiches of a glorious culinary tradition. The last three I went to, including the Gaucho in London, knew very little about meat and served medium ordered meats over cooked. Criminal. Varanda is where it's at. Brazilian meat properly cooked. Absolute heaven!

If you look for a nice beef near JK Avenue or Vila Olimpia area in Sao Paulo now there is a Varanda branch at Shopping JK. The meat there is one of the best in town and it is always crowded at lunch time.
