Tordesilhas, a meridian of Brazilian tastes

Tordesilhas is, in my opinion, the best window of Brazilian regional cuisines in a single outstanding restaurant. Under the highly competent direction of chef Maria Salles (one of the top five female chefs in Brazil), it serves the most representative dishes from the main regions of Brazil, such as... read more

I like to cook, and I am quite good at it. I very rarely enjoy a restaurant, anywhere in the world. This one easily passed the threshold. They make very good caipirinhas and excellent side dishes to go with them. Then I had the duck leg. It is served in tucupi sauce, which is made from manioc. The sauce is... More

The food is excellent but definitely is NOT THE REAL and popular Brazilian food. We don't eat anything close to those expensive and fancy dishes in our daily basis or even in special ocasions. The average individual price for a full meal is around R$ 100-120.

I ate here during the "Restaurant Week" and loved it. The decoration is based on colonial period pieces, very simple, yet sofisticated and picturesque. The waiters where efficient and friendly. Exotic spices with subtle tastes from other regions of Brazil, like the "pequi" that perfumed the rice, turned the meal into a fist class experience. For me it's one of... More

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.
