A small Tasca fit for nobles

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... read 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).

I've eaten at this place three or four times. As other reviewer's have noted very good authentic Portuguese food. It's quite strange that Italian food in São Paulo is not authentic Italian but Portuguese food is. Having said that this is a more upmarket take on Portuguese food. Stylish surroundings, excellent wine list and very good service. My only criticism... More

Came highly recommended . That's where it stops. We arrived on time but the head chef was not there thus everything was delayed. I requested Caldo verde followed by Arroz de Pato as a main dish and wife had no starter but Acorda de Camarao. That's where things started to go wrong. First the delay then no soup which, I...

My partner and I love good restaurants. And when a friend who had lived in Portugal and has a great liking for its cuisine invited us to Tasca da Esquina, we were surprised we had never heard of it. Was its existence a secret or were we out of that particular loop? Now it is near the top of our... More

I'm Portuguese so I know what I am talking about. This is the most authentic and best Portuguese restaurant in SP. The chefs are Portuguese from Portugal, the menu is authentic, the service is very good.
