The service was okay (no one seemed to know any English). The amount of food for the money was excellent. The quality of the food was good. The quail eggs were excellent, as were the hearts of palm. The cuts of meat were excellent and they were willing to cook to your specifications (although I would say most of it... More

Food was average, but plentiful. The desserts were great, but the rest was not up to the high quality I normally expect in SP. The service was amazing, though... which I found odd, but was happy anyway. Friendly people and OK food, so I might return.

Good value Churuscaria type food and buffet but, not as expensive as full all out Churuscaria. Less formal and just the job when you want an informal meal

Welcoming staff. Good variety of salads. Somewhat varied hot entrees. Meats ordered from a separate counter. Dessert bar with typical sweets. Attentive staff. Good value for the money. Will return.

Staff is very nice and always ready to help, food is average and not seem to be always fresh but you only pay 37 brl , drinks not included . It s not a gastronomic place but handy if you are staying in hotels around the area. The place is very big and you can seat large groups.

This place is always terrific that I go back every time I visit Sao Paulo. Not the best churrascaria, but the smorgasburg always is slighly different salads and hot foods with staple meats. Terrific place for lunch. Great value. This year it is 58.05/kg and they slipped in a higher 18% tip (higher than before).

Great Churrascaria BBQ restaurant. Very clean, very nice decor and great staff with plenty of selection. Huge salad bar and a very delicious selection of desserts after an endless supply of succulent meats constantly available throughout the dinner.

Not your traditional churrascaria. it has an all you can eat salad bar, grill and desserts, the difference is you go to the grill and pick out the meat you want to eat as many times as you want. The grill has beef, chicken, fish, sausage and cheese. Not a high end churrascaria but average decor with a reasonable price... More

Not the best Churascaria but definitely the best value. Help yourself from the buffet, meat selection ok and quality ok Salad and puds selection very good, if you have room. If you are going to impress someone go the Bovinuos that used to be called the Paulista Grill as far superior in every respect but you will pay for it!!!... More

Neighborhood Profile
Jardins
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.
