I went to Maní in June 2014, because I heard it was amazing, innovative food. I count be more disappointed. Starting with the cold jabuticaba soup, it tasted like chemicals. The tuetano, the fish was not fresh and the tiny desert "mil folhas" . I wouldn't even go there if it was cheap, I hated the food. The only positive... More

Definitely a must go restaurante in SP, but don't forget to make a reservation. The prices are high but you'll make an impression in special occasions.

Expectations are set very high, maybe that starts to explain the disappointment. OK, you already know you will pay BRL $40 for an egg or $60 for tiny flavored balls... and then over $80 for any main dish with small portions and foam of this, scent of that... etc. The cheapest wine will start at 120 -- so what you...

We really wanted to like Mani, routinely rated one of the 50 best restaurants in the world. We booked a meal for our last night in Brazil, after three weeks in the country, thinking it would be a great way to end the trip. But maybe it's just not possible to live up to the hype. The atmosphere is lovely--a... More

This place deserves to be ranked in the best of the world! Such detail is put into every aspect of the restaurant that makes this place so special. The atmosphere is great: cozy, calm, low lighting and not at all pretentious. The serving staff paid attention to my requests and made suggestions in perfect English (something I cannot say for...

Well this is not an ordinary restaurant. And not suitable for children as well, because the food is too elaborated for them. It's very cozy, the staff, as always in São Paulo, is perfect. The food is elegant, tasty, with a fusion of flavors from different parts of the world, but with emphasis in brazilian ingredients. The wine list is... More

They serve unexpected food combinations, it is a good place to try new flavors in different presentations! It is a little bit expensive and you can wait for hours if you dont have a reseevation.

Try the seasonal 7 course lunch/ dinner. Most ingredients are local to south Brazil, but the food is not necessarily Brazilian per se. The service is very attentive and the staff very knowledgeable. São Paulo is one of the best cities for food enthusiasts and this one is up there on the 'must try' list while in São Paulo.

Cool atmosphere, great service and the food match all the expectation for Helena Rizzo reputation. We had no reservation, therefore we had to wait for 90 minutes! But I can't complain! We waited sitting in the waiting hall, drinking wine and trying the yummy starters (bombom de guacamole + bolinho de quinua). I had the fish of the day and... More
