My business local friend took me to this Brazilian restaurant to taste the local food, the décor and ambiance are elegant and comfortable, very good service but no one speaks English, my friend did all the translations, good wine list, big portion and tasteful meat, price is expensive, but you will be satisfied if you like meat!

Great meat! Yes, it's expensive, after all, this is São Paulo. But portions are big and the meat is wonderful, definitely worth it. They also have a great wine list.

I was there with a group and was very impressed with the quality of service. Everyone at the restaurant was very nice, but did not speak English. The salad bar was great and the cuts of meat that were brought to our table was outstanding. I would recommend and will return when in the area again.

This is a high end restaurant in an expensive city, so there is no reason to be surprised by the check. You get what you pay for: the beef is excellent, the service is great, and the wine list is at the same level. Think it is time to treat yourself to a great dining experience? Try here.

Service was great, meat and other offerings are top notch. Price per person is high, yet the price is worth it. Every item from the gourmet buffet we tried was excellent. The foor and serving style lends itself perfectly for a business dinnner.

Went to the Rubaiyat on Tuesday night with friends. Service is great, steaks were amazing, great ambiance. A bit expensive though. We shared a bottle of Argentinean Malbec with three friends and the bill came to some 85 US per person. But, one works hard and must play harder. Must say I loved it. The fried rice they serve is...

The Picanya is wonderful and the 1/2 Picanaya is the right size for lunch. The rib steak has the large bone and is amazing.The grilled hearts of palm is a... More

Eat all you can and please do it! We didn't know this when we came in and one of my colleagues paid 190 Real for a small salad and a dessert... Needless to say he was a bit shocked...

Rubayat has been good for decades and without any doubts is among the best meat restaurants in São Paulo. Meat perfect and cooked to perfection, side dishes that are just right (do try the Rice Biro-Biro and the farofa), starters that are in themselves a reason for a visit, etc. Their breads are so good that I am convinced that...
