Tasca da Esquina is a gastronomical restaurant well known to initiated locals. It has been strongly recommended as a highlight, and it has certainly lived up to this reputation. Reservation is mandatory, and it must be said that it is not among the cheap eating places, the price of tasting menus is between 100-160 reais. Our tasting menu (7 courses... More

Don't be fooled by the picture above - this is a lovely little tapas restaurant in the Jardins area of Sao Paolo. We went on our last day of holiday and left wishing we'd found it earlier because we would definitely have eaten there again if we'd had the time. The service is good and the food outstanding. It was... More

The Tasca da Esquina is the São Paulo's branch of the homonymous house of chef Vitor Sobral, located in Lisbon. In addition to the regular menu, there is the option to do a tasting menu, with 4, 5, 6 or 7 dishes plus dessert. To tell the truth, this return to the Tasca da Esquina was a little bit frustrating.... More

Nice atmosphere, ok service. The menu is basically Portuguese food. I tried the house recommendation: octopus & rice and it was pretty average

The restaurant itself is very nicely put together with exposed brick, aged wood etc. The staff were also really helpful making recommendations and quick service. We went for a cod and chickpea salad and aubergine and jamon for starters....they are massive!!! You could easily share one between two. They were both good but the cod and chickpea was especially tasty,... More

Nice atmosphere with good wine list to accompany your meal. The food is very tasty and well prepared. My favorite dish is the "Açorda de camarão". Another interesting dish is " Raia confitada, tomate seco, damascos e creme de espinafre". If you have never ate a marine ray its is a good recipe for your debut.

A friend and I were travelling through Sao Paolo en route to Iguazu Falls and chose Tasca da Esquina due to its proximity to the hotel. This turned out to be an excellent decision. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful (when they didn't have the wine we asked for they even sent us a complimentary glass of another!) and... More

I had been to Tasca da Esquina twice last month and it already became one of my favourites in SP. Start with "Bolinho de Bacalhau", creamy and crunch cod croquet. Then order one of the cod fish dishes, simply delicious. I had the "duo" which is a combination of cod fish Braz and cod fish cooked in the oven. Amazing!... More

Staying in Jardins

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.
