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.

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.
