Surprisingly good pasta

Was there for dinner in the middle of the week. The wine suggested was very good, and the pasta was very tasty, surprisingly so - one would think this not a place with tasty cuisine, but I was gladly proven wrong! Not to mention how beautiful the "green wall", with lots of gorgeous plants, looks... read more

I was taken to Kaa by a Brazilian business colleague who rates it as one of his favourites. You get a shock when you come from the front door into the amazing space with a cathedral roof and plants and water everywhere. The wine list, food and service were certainly not disappointing and I enjoyed my pasta choice very much.

Nice restaurant with very good environment and atmosphere, not fancy but good quality of products and food. One of the best restaurants around, food is not the best I had in SP but good enough complemented with the great environment with the a green (plants) wall.

It was my first time at KAA that was highly recommended by a friend. The place is really beautiful - that's for sure. However, as soon as we sat at the table, I was with two business clients, the nightmare started. The service was utterly awful. We waited for the ordered wine what seemed eternity. At certain point, I even... More

It was considered the most beautiful restaurant in the world. It is a beautiful and charming contemporary design. Its high walls full of plant give a cozy feel of a garden patio. But do not just be beautiful, must have good service and good food.I chose magret of duck with green pepper sauce with potato gratin à la normande. Wonderful!... More

As others have sad is is unpretentious and a surprise behind a large steel door. Excellent food, great staff and great ambiance. I will return to this restaurant the next time I visit São Paulo.

This place, although well rated already, was a complete surprise for us for a Sunday lunch. Great architect that thought about developing a narrow place between two buildings, with a ceiling that lets natural light in, also partly opens and lets air circulate. Great relaxed atmosphere with wooden tables, comfy chairs and sofas, and also nice background music. We all... More

first time in Brazil, first time in Sao Paulo, we were taken to the KAA restaurant on our very first night for a business dinner. You enter a big closed door, no idea what to expect, and then you enter this AMAZING place. Have not seen a lot of restaurants like this before... and I travel quite a lot.... What... More

The highlight of this place is the ambience...food is OK, service is quite good and the wine list is pretty impressive, with a focus on production from small wineries.
