“Skip it! If the plate don't match the description, call the manager!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2012

unit at Arapanes 508 - I have asked a meat plate with shrimp and veggies, believe or not it has come 3 very small shrimps and 4 small pieces of veggies the plate seemed small for children, all the content used less than half of the plate . When the bill arrived, another bad surprise, the bill of R$ 100 jumped to R$ 114 when the debit card machine arrived.In Sao Paulo the service taxes are all the times around 10%; I was together with a my partner and decided not make do an scandal. Used this place a few years ago and can intend not to come back!

“This is an american chain that does not represent the quality of restaurants in Sao Paulo.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2012

Avoid eating at American chain restaurants while eating in Sao Paulo- it is such an incredible opportunity. The food in this city is good enough to bring tears to your eyes. The city's biggest advantage is it's incredible restaurants. Go out and get eating- leave Applebee's for later.

“Average fast-food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2010

I´ve been to Applebee´s at Eldorado shopping mall a few days ago.
First of all, the service was slow... I closed the menu, and after waiting a lot, I had to call a waiter to ask my beverage. I had to ask again to ask the dish. If you think the restaurant was full, you´re wrong. There was only a couple and me during lunch time. The waiters were talking to each other instead of paying attention to the clients...

About the food... Well, just fast-food. The meat I asked was OK, smooth and the grilling point was just like I requested. The rest, was just fine. But, in my opinion, too expensive for a "just fine" food.

Positive point for the "refil" system of beverages (just like the concurrent Outback): for beer and soft drinks, you pay once and you cup is always full. The raspberry lemonade is also very nice.

Finally, this is just a nice restaurant for having lunch during working time. I wouldn´t go there for a dinner...
