Wonderful service and wonderful food.

A friend and I were travelling through Sao Paolo en route to Iguazu Falls and chose Tasca da Esquina due to its proximity to the hotel. This turned out to be an excellent decision.

I had been to Tasca da Esquina twice last month and it already became one of my favourites in SP. Start with "Bolinho de Bacalhau", creamy and crunch cod croquet. Then order one of the cod fish dishes, simply delicious. I had the "duo" which is a combination of cod fish Braz and cod fish cooked in the oven. Amazing!... More

Excellent service with English speaking staff, we enjoyed a 5 course tasting menu that included fresh ingredients to create tasty masterpieces. Portions were appropriate and artfully presented, prices was reasonable. Portuguese cuisine at its finest.

As I travel many times to São Paulo it's quite usual to try to find new places. As Portuguese I prefer to eat where I trust and where I know it's good. This places I heard on one of my last visits here to São Paulo. One of my colleagues told me to try this place. Here I am right... More

Tasca, in Portugal, refers to a modest tavern serving basic food and wine in a modest lodgement. But this Tasca da Esquina in São Paulo, although having a relatively modest premises and décor, serves outstanding Portuguese fare for discerning palates. Its renditions of "bacalhau ao forno" (oven cooked cod) and "bacalhau ao Braz" (cod Braz style) coming as two portions... More

We have been at this restaurant many times for lunch during the week as it is close to work. The food is very good! They have an executive menu at lunchtime during the week with a very good price for starter, main and dessert. On fridays they have a cod fish (bacalhau nas natas) which is amazing! The place is...

Surprisingly one of the best Portuguese "Tasca" in town, and how delicious is that Pastel de Belém with Ginja Icecream, just marvelous.

With a cozy modern decor, this is one of the best places for "bacalhau" in SP. Moreover, it is also at a lower price than others in the same area. Tasting desert menu was also very interesting. I would definitely recommend and return!

Food was great, service was average, but make reservations as it is not a big restaurant (about 20 tables, perhaps).

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.
