The best meal we had while in Sao Paulo. It was also the best caipirinhas we has there as well. I had the shrimp bobo (coconut milk) and the wife had a fish and shrimp stew in tomato sauce. Overall A+ menu. Service was perfect and a waiter who spoke English. Had the Manny Araujo which was caramelized bananas with... More

Came for lunch but they served the same menu all day. I was brought here to have the traditional Brazilian pork and bean dish, I didn't care for it much, but I did love the duck! I had a roasted duck leg on top of a Brazilian vegetable that makes your mouth tingle and go a little numb! Delicious and... More

If you are looking for a local, very tasty food but not overwhelmingly spicy this is the place to go. The food is so fresh you wonder if the cook is not just returning from the market, we had the fish. But this is not a place to be seen but a place to eat good food. The service is... More

Second time in Sao Paulo and debated whether to go back to Tordesilhas or try someplace new, and I have no regrets after having returned. Food, caipirinhas, and service were as wonderful as the first time. The locale is charming and classy but comfortable, with genuinely friendly and helpful servers. I mentioned to one that I remembered him from my... More

I´ve been to Tordesilhas 3 times in the last 6 months. The food is excellent, with amazing combinations that makes you want to come back. The only bad thing is that you need to book a table in advance because the place is always full, unless you don´t mind waiting 1 hour for a table.

Original and tasteful Brazilian food, now in the middle of Jardins neighbourhood. Try 'caipirinha de 3 limões', the best in town. If you like really sweet desserts, should try some of the exotic options.

We sat near a window that opened to the outdoors and ate yummy local cuisines. Setting is nice, not stuffy or uncomfortable and we tried many local dishes. I was traveling with a local from Brazil and he was impressed with the authentic local disihes. I tried the jambu soup (along with many other dishes) .... its a tongue numbing... More

You can try surprising Brazilian food from different regions, from the famous "feijoada" to tipical fishes from Amazonia like amazing "Filhote" and "Pirarucu" always with nice surroundings and reasonably priced. My favorite is a shrimp plate from Bahia, Bobô de Camarão, you must try it!

For sure one of the best restaurants in São Paulo. Love this place! Have been a cliente for many many years, before it moved to this current location, and never had a bad experience. A good taste of Brazilian food from diferente regions, and without being simply ordinary. Also very recommended for a good feijoada, very light without losing it's... More

If you want to sample delicious local delicacies outside the feijoada or barbecue (both excellent in Brazil), this one of the places to go. Original, creative, nice surroundings and reasonably priced
