What can I say, this place is on my hit list of places to eat at whenever I visit SP. Basically if your palette is drawn to foods from the Mediterranean Basin, then this place will not disappoint. I have been here several times and it is consistently very good. Décor - Nice and spacious, clean and bright with high... More

Rascal has a good antipasto and salad buffet and a counter with 3 choices of pasta and meat that permit you to have a quick lunch, but with a similar quality of an "a la carte" restaurant.

the salad buffet is really nice. the food is fresh and delicious. service is really good also. the only drawback was the valet parking (you pay for a valet but they require you to pick up your vehicle at the garage)

Rascal may not be big on ambiance, but they more than make up for it with the variety of food offerings. Buffet of ala carte doesn't matter. Everything is freshly prepared and and plentiful. The salad and pasta bars were impressive and the wood stove pizzas and flat breads outstanding.

Although one can opt for meats for a higher price, comparable to a rodizio, you can get plenty of great food here for a single reasonable price, all you can eat. I loved the salads, of which there is a great variety including Belgian endive and arrugula (my favorites), the sashimi, shrimp salad, grilled vegetables. By the time I ate... More

Right in the downtown this place offers variety of cuisines with the option of Buffet and Ala carte. one can see the big Pizza owens right across the seating space. The service was good. The place is a bit pricey and worth a visit and one of the popular eating joints in sao paulo.

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.
