I loved the inside of this restaurant. With "living walls" and water, it was truly serene. The food was delicious as well. I had an amazing beet salad with goat cheese and then grilled shrimp. Everyone at the table seemed to really enjoy the food they ordered. Did I mention the decor? Truly wonderful experience.

From the street you would probably walk past unknowing what a gem this place is. Walk inside and you are in for a visual treat and the food and service is great. We had a business dinner here, everyone had something different and all enjoyed.

Anyone interested in "something different" should make for KAA. This has to be one of the world´s top starred restaurants, although the prices are (given the standard of food and wine) quite reasonable. I loved the seafood platter, cooked to perfection. and the ambience: sophisticated without being pretentious, classy without being over the top. A lovely evening in São Paulo.... More

Pleasant lunch but it took to long to be serviced. Food is average compared to the price paid. Has private rooms for rather large groups which is good.

Don't be put off by the steel door exterior, you would never know that the restaurant in the pictures exists behind it. The food is very good as is the service. Yes it is a little pricey but you get a good meal and good experience, it is worth the cost.

Although hard to find a table, we were ale to make a reserve, and made it there with a friend tonight. Again, this place surprises. Wonderful entree of salmon tartar, a delicious Risotto with shrimps and calamari, and an amazing dessert called "floating isles", along with a very good espresso. Very good service, clean, and a charming place. Everything you... More

The design is really superb, there is a reflecting pool at the entrance and a green wall running next to it till the end of the space, which is half open to above. The central section with the wood wall and shelves is fantastic and has nice warm... More
