I have been visiting it during the last couple of years every 3-4 months (when visiting Sao Paulo for business) and I admire the consistency of quality, as well as the creativity of the chef! On top of that at lunch it offers a very accessible executive menu, thus a perfect place for a nice light business lunch.

Figo is a small restaurant with great service and fantastic food. The environment is very nice and comfortable. They specialize in fresh brazilian food done gourmet, but not over the top. I tried a fish dish that seemed simple, but had very complex flavors. I tried several dishes at the table and every one of them was out of this... More

The young chef Miss Luiza Hoffman , created a bistro , full of surprises. From the starters to the wine list , the dinning experience was a pleasure. The rich neighborhood provides beautiful customers. Worth the visit for sure. A little bit over- priced , but still worth tasting the food.

Vila Nova Conceição has a lack of good restaurants, but Figo is a exception. They are specialized in brazilian food, all made with organic ingredients. My plate was delicious and with an incredible smell. The chef came in person to ask about the food.

One of those evenings where everything is right: the welcome, the choice of dishes, the food itself, the ambiance, the contact with the staff. The vegetarian dishes are excellent. For dessert we had creme brulee with a tinge of ginger. i can recommend it. The owner, Luiza,is adorable and makes everyone feel welcome. All things considered a perfect score. I... More

Its a tough call putting yourself on the culinary map in Sao Paulo - you are up against some of the best, but Figo has rightfully claimed its place as an essential stop over if you need a fine feed in Sao Paulo. Luiza Hoffman's restaurant blew our minds with both the concepts behind the dishes and the delicate nature... More

great environment, great service and fantastic food in a simple, yet complete menu. the only thing I'd improve is the wine list, which is boring and incomplete.

Found this place by accident after a walk in Parc Ibirapuera. Very warm welcome - in English - as none of us spoke a word of Portuguese; they managed an English translation of the menu too. Really excellent innovative food - a fusion of Brazilian - Bahia from the north mixed with North African and Asian. It really worked. The... More
