A superb experience. The food was perfectly balanced, original, and just basically really really good. The service was good, attentive, always present but never visible (I mean the in the best sense possible) Good wine list, but as in another couple of good Sao Paulo restaurents, I would have loved a wider choice of Brazilian wine.

This is a quite casual restaurant setting with great food. We loved the introduction of brazilian ingredients in many of otherwise contemporary dishes. Good service, good wine list. Definitively a romantic place, not a place for kids.

Read from a book that this place was worth coming to and was confirmed by a friend who's working in Sampa and has yet to try them. We didn't make a reservation and arrived there at 830pm. There was a long Q and we had some cocktails. It was lovely. The place is semi formal. Quite layback and very cosy.... More

Mani is a very well know restaurant in Sao Paulo. We were there again for a business diner. I order an Octopus and franly it has been the best I have ever eaten in my life. Just outstanding. Octopus is not easy to cook and may be hard or gelatinous. Here it was just excellent. Other people took Tuna and... More

What a pleasant experience! The couvert is just amazing - one of those you can't refuse. The variety of dishes is overwhelming, and for sure there's something really good for any taste. Vegetarians like myself included, of course. Very recommended, a great restaurant.

At the table we tasted the povilho bread, which had perfect texture, very crunchy, and the brioche wich was... More
