Went for a Saturday lunch for a feijoada, the black beans stew. The pot for one was a good size, comes with rice and couve, well made, not exceptional. Tried also the carne de sol, a Northern traditional dry meat plate. The meat was not salty, well made. The service was good and a very nice environment.

Brazilian friendly restaurant with excellent meals. Is is located in a very nice neighborhood in São Paulo. I suggest the "shrimp bobo" or " chicken with corn curau". For dessert, stick with the roasted coconut candy with ice cream and tamarind sauce! The caipirinha is very good.

Excellent place where to get an authentic inmersion into brasilian food (not only rodizio!). The ambience is also extremely characteristic, therefore an ideal place where to try good traditional food from several regions of this beautiful country

I went to this restaurant for dinner with my husband and one of my daughters. Mu husband went there before and talked very well about their food. My daughter and I were certainly not disappointed with our visit. They recently moved from a different house where my husband visited before. I didn't see the previous one, but this is a... More

I cannot say much more than recent reviewers and agree. I had the Amazonian fish with plantain but it was over done, dry and bland. We were hungry so they had the best opportunity to satisfy us. The duck was also non descript. So it's time to move on. Didn't get a 'war fuzzy' 'grandma's home' feeling at all!

Can you think about the feeling of being treated as if you were visiting a traditional grandma's house in the countryside of Brazil? But with the difference that grandma this time is no one but Mara Salles, one of the most well known female chefs in Brazil. Food there is simply Brazilian, but focused in the different regions and very... More

I was taken here by two Brazilian friends, who had been many times before, albeit in the old location, and who know their way around a restaurant menu. They raved about it, said the new place was just as good as the old; I found it uninspiring. For those who wish to sample more of Brazilian cuisine than the ubiquitous... More

The restaurant has recently moved from a more relaxed areas to this upmarket location. Unfortunately, the service and the environment is a bit stiff (and slow). The food is alright, but the overall experience is not very exciting anymore.
