After walking Avenida Paulista on Sunday morning we stopped for an early lunch. The salad bar was wonderful, I could have just kept going back for more, so many selections. The dessert choices were wonderful...I could have had a second slice of the apple pie. However, disappointed in the pasta bar...I had the linguini and Alfredo, very flat not very... More

I have mentioned before how much I detest tepid, stale and congealed buffet fayre. However, Rascal is none of these things and was an absolute pleasure to dine for lunch. The waiting staff are smart and professional - usually buffet is about saving cost of staff but not so here. The hot buffet itself was served by chefs in smart,... More

Had dinner, I ordered chicken breast and the buffet. Great buffet! Nice and fresh. The chicken breast was succulent and tasty. I could not stop eating.

The salad bar at the Rascal is unbeatable. The selection of vegetables, fish (must have the sealed raw tuna slices) is amazing. There is also a pasta station which I thought was great but our Brazilian colleagues rated only as ok. Good service and excellent desserts!

We had lunch at Rascal and it's ok. Different kind of dishes and a good selection of wines. It's nothing extraordinary though.

Work gets me to Sao Paulo quite often, and this is a must stop all the time. The variety in the salad buffet is amazing. Everything is local and fresh! Simple food like food should taste. There is also an excellent appetizer buffet with grilled vegetables, meats and pizza. You will go back and forth to this one spot, guaranteed!... More

An extensive selection of grilled vegetables, salads with a variety of greens and fixings. Excellent carpaccio, ahi tuna. The pasta bar is varied, I had a lazagna with spinach and fresh cod. Desserts ordered from a menu. Staff is courteous and attentive. I will definitely return.

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.
