Wonderful food

The restaurant is excellent with very inventive meals from the Brasilian cuisine. The best restaurant we had in Sao Paulo. The interior is relaxing better than often in this type of restaurants

This one is a "must do" while in SP -- spectacular food and service and a wonderful warm setting -- we had the five course tasting menu and it rivaled some of the best ... Attentive and warm service, great wine selection and a fabulous SP vibe, make sure that you reserve well in advance (at least a month) to... More

If you desire an unforgettable experience, come to Mani for the degustation menu. On the other hand, if you wish to have part of the experience, with a fraction of the cost, enjoy the lunch. The food is absolutely amazing.

Nice atmosphere. Food ok, but too much of the same. Tiring dishes with too monotone flavors. Starters really small. Overpriced. Desert (cucumber and lychee) made up to some extent

The place is very nice, great food (small and pricy portions, though), disapointing service and they open only at the first service time - 8:30pm!!! So, if you get there 10' before 8:30pm you need to wait outside on the sidewalk... so unkind! If the place was located on a safer city that wouldn't be a big deal, but in... More

Staying in Jardins

Neighborhood Profile
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.
