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

Simply stunning, from the theatre of holding people outside the restaurant until it opens for lunch at 1pm to the corridor to get to the dining area which goes past the kitchen. The bread is fantastic and also comes with rice/tapioca crackers, I ordered the Atlantic salad and the catch of the day with sweet potatoes, red onions and curdled... More

Get a reservation and try to go early or you will be waiting for around an hour to hour and a half for a table. Go early to get the complete tasting meal which is multiple courses with wine and is around $250. If you get this meal plan on around 3 hours. Food here is small portions packed with... More

arrived at 930, put name in and was not seated until 1045. No worries had some nice cocktails and apps while waiting. The sliced beef on potato chip was amazing and unique. Neither element overwhelmed the other, and it also complimented the Sliced Octopus that was ordered. Dinner came and blown away by the dishes. My only disappointment was that... More

I had been in Mani for three times. It's a very nice place in a wonderful area in São Paulo. I would say that Restaurant and Chef are more famous than food. As all kind of business relations and good press around the world make difference. For taste I definitely would say that Mani is absolutely on average. For food... More
