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

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
