Where to start, besides the excellent meat, the service is superb and never lets me down. The meat is excellently served and also very delicious.

If you like meat, this is the place to go in Sao Paulo. You can choose between Brazilian, Argentinian and American. Excellent wine list with verious international selection. Not cheap, but good variety. The athmosphere is nice in between more formal and bistro type.

One of the best places I know to eat meat, taste fantastic and always at the right cooking point. Side dishes not sophisticated but the light spot is the meat.

We had a great experience in this brazilian steakhouse which offers different cuts (argentinian cuts, US cuts...). Their specialty is meat so you should definitely try it. They have beautiful and tasteful beef and they know how to cook it perfectly. Service is friendly and professional, the decoration is nice and warm. The wine list is gorgeous with plenty of... More

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

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.
