An cut of meat ranges between 80 to 100 reais per person, no side dishes included. It's a good restaurant but nothing extraordinary. ..so forjme not worh the money. Same thing with the environment: an ok decoration. Service is very good. Food is good.

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!!

In my opinion, Varanda is one of the best restaurants in Brazil. It has the perfect balance between food and atmosphere, especially for a business lunch or dinner. This is a perfecto spot to try Brazilian food in a nice location. The best "farofa" I tried in Brazil was in Varanda.

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.
