I had the trotter with foie gras. It was such an amazing dish and concept. Presentation alone almost warrants an all star rating. The trotter was de-boned and then stuffed with the foie gras mixture, atop a bed of beans, with a carrot (?) purée. It is an amazing truly delicious dish, worth every reais.

Epice is on the list of 50 best restaurants in the classification of the British magazine The Restaurant. We went to dinner this week and chose dishes with offals, rare in good restaurants. We ordered lamb neck, pork trotter and pork belly, all excellent. There are some interesting choices of starters and few, but creative desserts. Don’t forget to ask... More

When I visited this restaurant (I think almost 2 years ago), I thought that the chef was promising. I was right about that. Visiting this week, I could experienced that the chef grew in his cuisine, which he prepare creative dishes with Brazilian ingredients and French style. The place is small, simple and cozy. Staff is very friendly and effective... More

For the downside: 1. the air conditioning is under dimensioned...it was very hot; 2. it took more than 30 minutes to serve the 1st dish; for a business lunch, it is a LOT of... More

This restaurant was indicated by two friends, one of them, who work nearby and use to go there often for lunch. We met there to plan for the annual gathering of our previous employer. I didn't know the place and I love it. It's simple, modern and with a pinch of sophistication. The best part is their dishes, which have... More

I liked the food but a bit out of proportion prices. My appetizer was very tiny which is the reason I only gave 4 stars to this resto. I do not like to pay a lot of money for microscopic meals. But the main course was excellent and everything tasted wonderful.

Staying in Jardins

Neighborhood Profile
Jardins
Located just below important Paulista Avenue, Jardins is the junction of four smaller neighborhoods: Jardim Paulista, Jardim América, Jardim Europa and Jardim Paulistano. It is an upper-class area, offering a variety of things to do, including shopping, museums and parks. The neighborhood is well known for “Oscar Freire”– the most luxurious street in the city, packed with high-end boutiques. In Jardins you will also find a trendy museum, São Paulo Museum of Image and Sound (MIS), which people often line up for hours to visit. If green space is what you're after, take time to relax at Trianon Park, a refuge in the heart of Paulista Avenue.
