Best food in SP

Behind a small, dark door, an unexpected, zen-like pool reflects a vista of elegant tables widely spaced under light-filled, tall ceilings against a wall hung top to bottom with tropical vegetation. Discreet, impeccable service, the best meal I had in SP, priced accordingly, but who's... read more

The Kaá restaurant, the name comes from the Tupi “leaf, grass, bush”, is undoubtedly one of the nicest restaurants in the city of São Paulo. The discrete entrance in Jucelino Kubitschek Avenue does not let you guess the stunning architecture of the interior. The room scale, combining indoor and outdoor elegantly, the water mirror and the vertical garden with lush... More

KAA is a very beautiful and ambient restaurant where design does not dominate service and food. Our meals were of a really hign standard and the service was very competent, if a little formal. We had dinner but I will go back for lunch, since the interior lends itself to being a very cool day venue as well.

This is the third time I've had a business lunch at Kaa. Beautiful setting with the plant wall (I'm told) gaining this place global recognition. Nice and diverse menu with something for every taste..

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 while you dine. Really worth... 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
