This is an usual place for my business meetings. It's a bit overpriced especially wines. To be within budget and still look good I pick some of the nice Rioja wines. They will be perfect along with the heart of picanha and the local specialty sides such as chips "soufflé", carretero rice, etc.

Varanda is a great place for business dinners, specialized in beef. They've got authentic black angus.

Went there with my husband and Brazilian family and the food was divine! The steaks were to die for and the accompaniments were really delicious. Very friendly and helpful staff, definitely recommend for the best steak in Sao Paulo!

Nice quaint restaurant. Having been there a few times already, I love the fact that the quality of the food remains excellent. Despite no Portuguese skills, the staff are attentive and helpful. Make a reservation if you are headed here ... especially on Sunday afternoons. Don't miss the papas soufflé

This is a very good steak house inside JK Iguatemi shopping mall. Very nice environment, good service. Different steak cuts on the same restaurant where you can choose according to your favorite taste. Palm tree is also a very good side dish.

It is a pity that the environment is very noisy (common in Brazil) and the service sometimes muddled (rarely), but the meat is worth, as well as side dishes. Great place for family gathering!

Checked out Steakhouses in Sao Paulo on Trip Advisor and found the Varanda Grill. We were not disappointed. Skirt steak for two was awesome and ended up with a doggy bag. Staff was attentive and most help since we do not speak Spanish or Portuguese. Side dishes were Brazil dishes and were delicious. Great atmosphere. Romantic but not stuffy. Nice... More

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.
