If you are looking for something new to taste and enjoy, this is the place. I have been here 4 times already and every single time a great and different experience. The mixtures of flavours are amazing. The price is a little bit high.

The restaurant's atmosphere is surprisingly casual for what one would expect when knowing the place in ranked within the top 50 restaurants in the world. I enjoyed the rustic yet chic decor in white and light tones of wood. I tried to make a reservation via email two weeks in advance without success so we just showed up past 8:00... More

Helena Rizzo truly deserves her title of best female chef from Veuve Cliqcot. The ambience is simple, but with incredible charm. We took the hole menu degustation and is a surprise after another. The harmonization is incredible!!! Great for a special night.

Mani is one of the best Brazilian restaurants, ranked as one of the top 50 of the world by The Restaurant and has one Michelin star in the new guide of Brazil. The place is charming and clean; the service is professional. The most important is, obviously, the food that combines wonderfully the modern and the old school cooking, and... More

I went with colleagues to Mani for lunch recently. They are Paulistanos and had been before and noted it was a ‘pretty good’ restaurant. That should have reset my expectations appropriately after reading some of the laudatory reviews about Mani and the awards/accolades the restaurant has received. So… …it has good, interesting food following the formula of “use local ingredients... More

I was told to arrive a few minutes before 8:30pm when they opened to try and secure a walk in table. I must have been lucky because I had no problems. I was seated as soon as they opened thanks to the very nice host outside. Inside, the restaurant feels rustic with a pretty a simple open backyard. Dinner was... More

A quick summary of my internal grading system: Atmosphere - Very charming. They did an impressive job of making it feel as if you are eating outside - but its all an illusion. Very nicely done. 5/5 Service - Really the most disappointing part of the evening. Every time we needed a waiter we had to essentially flag one down.... More

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.
