Absolutely outstanding tasting menu, stretched out to over 15 courses, including tapas. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner with wine pairings. When we were done we looked at our watches and it had been 4 hours - the time flew by. I rate this fairly equal to D.O.M. and it should be rated higher on... read more

We read on tripadvisor about Mani. They don't take reservations after 1.30 pm for lunch. We went at 3.30 pm and waited for 20 minutes for a table. You could order drinks & starters and peek in the kitchen. We ordered a salad and crayfish moqueca for the main course. The salad was very good while the moqueca was exceptional.... More

Mani is a super quaint and elegant dining establishment in the heart of a concrete jungle. I made reservations months in advance for an a la carte ordering. The food was beautifully executed and gorgeously plated. Service was impeccable and the wine selection was delicious. Food wasn't overwhelmingly earth shattering delicious but it was an incredible dinner. We got to... More

Perhaps is the best place in town. Starred by Michelin, Daniel Redondo, a well trained chef in soñé of the best Top Restaurant (lime Celler de Can Roca) is a reflection of the combinAtion of local brazilian Products with Spanish styled dishes. festival menú is just an experience. Service is also top. Daniel, congratlations. Keep pushing.

They were fully booked for dinner for the next 10 days so decided to book it for lunch. Had one of the most beautiful lunches of my life and just the most amazing service. The seating at the backyard patio is very nice, a retractable roof and flowers above you. Just delicious, the best moqueca I've ever had in Brasil... More

Last night we visited DOM which was very good and has higher St Pellegrino rating. DOM is good, but the food at Mani is in my opinion better. The only downside of Mani is having turned up at 8.20 for a 8.30 reservation you are made to stand outside the closed door with a crowd made up of those with... More

We had to wait 30 mins that turned into 2 hours for a table albeit that was not a problem as we kept ordering more and more appetizers to eat while we waited with some excellent wine. The Grilled octopus and firs gras bombom with guava and porto wine... More

No words. Worth the time, the money, the experience. It is.a must when in São Paulo. Love it. The "menu degustação" is unbelievably awesome.

Staying in Jardins

Neighborhood Profile
Jardins
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.
