Galeto is an chain of restaurants famous for the Chicken. For brasilian standards the place are nice and actractive, but in other european country this kind of restaurant are "normal". What i not found normal is the bill at the end with the suggested surcharge for service about 15%. To try 1 time the famous galeto and, in my opinion,... More

Close by our hotel El Porto Bay and went for a quick lunch. Nice spicing, very informal, moderate prices. A good place to grab something healthy to eat without spending a lot of cash.

The best grilled chicken ever .... Galeto's chicken has a unique taste but also other options .. as a Portuguese must say their codfish/ bacalhau is approved :) nice environment for almost every occasion . Service is quite slow

I feel cheated, bad enough paying for blannd risotto, boringly limp broccoli, but they added B$ 14 to the bill for 'gorjeta securida', which means card security, and then 3 waiters insisted was for service. Do not go! I feel so cheated!

This restaurant has a rich choice of salads, meals, meats, in a safe ambiance in the Moriggi shopping center. And reasonably priced. Friendly and very good service.

The house specialty is, obviously, chicken. It's cooked perfectly, the service is excellent and the restaurant hours accommodate everyone's dining habits. It is, however, a bit over priced considering it is, after all, chicken, That said, I wouldn't hesitate to return next time I'm in Sao Paolo.

Th place is kind of a mark for those who want to eat chicken. Actually, IMHO, the quality is lowered a bit: even maintaining above the average standard, flavors are not awesome like once were... But stay with the chicken options, the rest is not worth the pick. However, here you can find the top 3 "pão de quiejo" in... More

Restaurant was not busy, and the menus are in english as well. Food was average - steak little over cooked, a seasoning on the meat we couldn't quite place. Wait staff seemed uncomfortable with English speakers, I recommend learning a little Portuguese before going, even a few words are helpful! (Duolingo!) Two people ran $50 to eat - a little... More

A good individual couvert (basket of bread). I enjoyed grilled chicken "galeto" They have a very good chicken. They have a fresh salad buffet with discounts for those who order a main course. The service is always very good. The price is not inexpensive. Enjoy

Staying in Jardins

Neighborhood Profile
Located just below important Paulista Avenue, Jardins is the junction of four smaller neighborhoods: Jardim Paulista, Jardim América, Jardim Europa and Jardim Paulistano. It is an upper-class area, offering a variety of things to do, including shopping, museums and parks. The neighborhood is well known for “Oscar Freire”– the most luxurious street in the city, packed with high-end boutiques. In Jardins you will also find a trendy museum, São Paulo Museum of Image and Sound (MIS), which people often line up for hours to visit. If green space is what you're after, take time to relax at Trianon Park, a refuge in the heart of Paulista Avenue.
