As soon as we got there, there was a sloth right at the tree in front of us!! The food is delicious, although expensive. Could go eat there everyday if I could!!

This exotic restaurant is like a journey to Robinson Crusoe´s house, while experiencing an exquisite couisine. Be prepared to start a journey right when you park your car at the first or 2nd parking lot. There you will be carried to the restaurant itself in a confortable van. When you actually get to the restaurant, (I suggest you make reservations... More

A boardwalk takes you to a tropical garden with spacy tables and very attentive staff. The menu covers seafood especially well and choosing is a challenge. I went for the white fish tartare which was one of the best I ever had. The seafood platter was abundant and lush. I couldn't resist the "sobresmesas" and had one based on egg... More

It's a beautiful environment. A restaurant that makes you feel like you're in the middle of a rainforest. It's awesome! The food prices are steep, even by Sao Paulo standards(R$65-R$150 for mains) but the drinks aren't(R$8 for local beer). We started with a plate of 'Lula a dore' to share(fried calamari) & it was good, but not great. We then... More

Just one street off the main street and a 100 meter! ride with a VIP Van you arrive at the restaurant. but it feels as if you are in a tropical rainforest already. The entree is impressive with very much green plants everywhere. Dinner and wine were delicious. The lights on the table could be a bit less bright. Although... More

Prepare for an experience. Park your car and go with a VIP van 1 kilometer into the forest. The food is quite expensive but the trip is worth it!

I went to Manaca with my family in April for dinner and it was truly unbelievable. I had a wild boar risotto and although the portion was huge I could not stop eating it! The service was very good! I was the only Brazilian and everyone else was American. Everyone loved their dishes, wine, service and the beautiful setting!

Manacá restaurante is (no doubt) the best spot in São Paulo State north coast. It was built in the middle of a garden full of Atlantic Forest species (for me one of the most beautiful kinds of vegetation). So when your are entering the place, you have the impression on walking in the middle of the forest. The food is... More
