Brought some friends here and had another great night of food and drink. I had the salmon, and my friends ordered Picanha and bife de chorizo. We all shared and were very happy with our meals. You get a lot of fresh bread and some light appetizers as part of your meal. And the dessert buffet was also very tasty.... More

The restaurant is stunning, built around a massive fig tree. There are large salad and dessert buffets and the food was very good. It's expensive, but definitely worth the experience.

Went for dinner... without reservation... had no problem to find us a table... the restaurant is great... around this massive tree that makes a great ambient! Food is great... service superb and you can't leave without trying their desserts! This place is one of the classics you have to visit while you are in sao paulo.

We've been here several times over the last few years and were really pleased that we had the chance to go again. However, it really was a disappointment this time and expensive to boot. You pay for the ambient while eating not so good food. But I'm sure we shall be back!

The fig tree is the central piece of the restaurant and an original scenery. you are outside with a transparent roof. when it s very hot, they vaporize water... the food is good but not that exceptional... prices are quite excessive. only the entree as they call it, it' s the full bill of a common restaurant. but it's always...

The meat in this restaurant is really amzingly good. On top it is very well prepared and nicely decorated on the plate. The atmosphere is mainly defined by the big fig tree outside which branches into the restaurant. Unfortunately the service during my visit could have been more attentive.

The impressive tree that receives you on the onset is an excellent start. And then the food and service is excellent. On the expensive end but really a great restaurant to go in Sao Paulo.

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.
