“Great food, greater view...so-so service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

Loved the spectacular view from this restaurant, billed as the highest point in Sao Paulo. Food was wonderful, service a little less so. I had mushroom risotto and my companion that a huge steak...try the creme de papaya - a local dessert that blends papaya with ice cream and a spritz of cassis - delicious!

“Unique experience in São Paulo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

The restaurant is beautiful, shows its age but is very well maintained, the view is jaw-dropping. Not the most beautiful neighbourhood around it but there is valet parking right at the door, so not a problem. Get the two elevators to the top of the building and enjoy the amazing view. The Piano Bar is a good start and ofter does not require reservations, good for waiting time until the main room opens. Arrive early, ask to be noticed when it is ready and you will get a good seat.

The service is really good and attentive, it is really nice to have dinner and see they already get your car while you were in the elevators. Pricey but totally worth the money.

“Appalling service ... Avoid”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

When we turned up to be seated we were told the table would be ready in 40 minutes. As it was, two hours later nothing materialised. The service also while we waited in the bar was terrible. You needed to fight for attention. Simply avoid this disaster in São Paulo. Terrible!

“Looking for a romantic dinner?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

What a wonderful place! Try to get a table by the window and relax looking the view, listening to the music, tasting a drink with your partner and waiting for the excelent italian food. Prices are a little bit high, but in return, you will have a marvelous experience. Me and my husband have been there for several times. Once, it was raining very heavy, but the unexpecting thunderstorm seen from the 44th floor, from that place, was magic. If you don't want to have dinner, there is a bar on the other side.
