“Excellent food and drinks”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

We often go to Astor for a casual lunch on Saturdays and it is always excellent - can't go wrong: drinks, chopp, appetizers (I usually go for the pastel or empadinha), entrees (filet milanesa, filet with mustard sauce, feijoada are great), desserts (chocolate pave, brigadeiro) are all excellent. Great traditional Brazilian bar food (as they say "comida de boteco"), in a nice relaxed atmosphere. The service is impeccable.

“Excellent food and even better drinks!!!”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

A couple of months ago I was looking for a bar/restaurant open until late in SP and came across Astor in Vila Madalena!
When I got there the place was absolutely booming and wait should be of about half an hour, but we decided to wait anyway, as the environment, was inviting, despite being crowed!
The barmen are really nice and make you feel welcome. Drinks are excellent, just like the food. Since then we have come back three times and each time my good impression was confirmed!
However, you’ve gotta like bar environments because that is a nice but crowed one!

“Astor: easy, light, fun”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

In Vila Madalena district there is no lack of "choperias" but Astor is a choperia above the others: good chopp, to start out with, but also good ffod. Food in two formats: petiscos which are small portions of fingers foods - try the "pastel de carne" or the "empada a moda" or...the list is long. OR if you are hungry, get there main dishes: from "moules e frites" to feojoada on Saturdays. Great stuff. Friendly staff. Easy going...shorts and a T-shirt type of place.

“Great bar and nice food”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

The bar is excellent, it serves one of the best draft beers in São Paulo. The bar food is very good too. The ambient is nice and it is open until late hours. A good choice.
