Food is generally good, but I wasn't particularly impressed. It is also posh and expensive. In the end I felt I was paying more for the seemingly "status" of being there rather than for the food experience.

Great food, lovely place, perfect for a family dinner or a romantic with your partner. The "river", the lights, everything makes the place incredibly charming

Great lunch time Buffett option. It has a very cool outdoor seating area with trees and canopy that share it and water features. It's peaceful and relaxing for being in the heart of a big city. The food was very good.

This restaurant presents a very sensual ambiance, warm and elegant, with candlelight, wood, vegetation, and outside courtyard... a perfect place for a romantic dinner. It's a pity that almost 80% of customers belittle it to a trivial fondue. Anyhow, I dare the chef's talent (and guts) and pick otherwise: octopus, with spinach creme and sweet potato - beautiful; grilled pineapple... More

I was reluctant to come, but I will definitely come back! There was 1 hour wait, much longer than we were told, but when we got our table we had an amazing couvert, served by Mr. Sarney who was kind enough to replace the meat in it with some amazing starters. We order a fondue with mushrooms, Mr Leandro Queiroz... More

I was in Sao Paulo for business for a few days. A friend who lives in Rio but comes to SP often recommended this restaurant. I visited with a business partner over lunch. They have a buffet as well as a menu for a la carte ordering. I opted for the buffet which turned out to be a great decision.... More

We were here for a lunch and Praca Sao Lourenco puts out a nice spread. There are plenty of choices from greens and salads, cheese, rice, quinoa, and meats and also fish. All I could do is two servings. Way too many choices and I was tempted to try it all. The beef stew was a little fatty but delicious.... More

We had a group dinner for 10 here and thoroughly enjoyed a local Brazilian Food with a little more elegance. I would describe as somewhat creative in options you can have as well as traditional dishes.
