We didn't have reservation so we waited around 60 min to have our table but, during this time we got to taste the bonbons (foie gras, guacamole and blue cheese, amazing mixture of flavors, personally I liked blue cheese the most). At the table we tasted the povilho bread, which had perfect texture, very crunchy, and the brioche wich was... More

Amazing experience in this stunning place where you finally find a real revisitated Brazilian cuisine. Loved the palmito tagliolini!!! Everything is perfect from the quality of cooking to the service. Price is absolutely well deserved. Must go place in San Paolo. Bravo!

This place definitively lives up to its reputation. The ambiance is absolutely great - very modern and chic brazilian (minimalist) decor, with lots of natural elements (trees, greeneries, pebbles). Food was excellent - sophisticated presentation, great use of local ingredients, and unique flavors. The chef did an incredible job blending traditional brazilian cuisine with more modern notes. It's a top... More

Wonderfully food. Imaginative and delicious. Service is attentive but not overbearing, and the ambience is lovely - stylishly simple, airy and informal. The only downside is that the seating is not very comfortable and I found myself shifting around on my hard and very thinly cushioned seat. For such a special place, I would've enjoyed it even more if was... More

We went here, as our friends got married in the venue next to Mani and so it was recommended to us. It was an incredible experience. The restaurant is very nicely decorated, very stylish, but not over the top. One rather feels at home or a family restaurant than in a top star restaurant. The service is very good, very... More

Came here for lunch, though they serve the same menu all day. They originally brought me the wrong appetizer but I think it was more of language barrier then anything else, they quickly fixed it. I had the gnocchi made of cassava which was very interesting, every bite was flavored with a different spice or herb. My main dish was... More

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.
