“One of the best hamburgers in Sao Paulo”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

I've been to PJ Clarke's a few times and have never been disappointed. Without a doubt, this is one of the best hamburgers in Sao Paulo.

“Food below average, ridiculous price”
Reviewed June 8, 2012

I recently visited this place am I am very disappointed.
The food was poor/average with the prices far too high for the quality.
The place is nice (for Sao Paulo) but the room where we were originally seated was too noisy and we had to move to a table in another area.
The burgers there are no better than those of GBK, but they cost twice the price of GBK.
I would definitely not go back. On a positive note, the service was very good.

“American Brunch”
Reviewed May 31, 2012

I go to P.J. Clarke's every month for brunch, because it's one of the few places in Sao Paulo where I can get waffles, pancakes and other typical things from an American brunch. I just think the price is a bit too much (R$39,90 per person) and adding hash browns to it wouldn't be a bad idea. (Idea wich I alredy gave it once).
Having an "açaí" bowl and fresh squeezed orange juice there is also a plus, at least for me.

“go there for the drink not the food”
Reviewed December 2, 2011

good atmosphere for happy hour or late cocktails, live music etc. Good service.

But the food really lets it down. It sells itself as a NY bar that specialises in Burgers and American food. But it really is very poor. The burger ingredients were very low quality (the meat itself was ok). You can get much better quality and value burgers else where in Sampa.

“Very Good, but not the best burger in São Paulo ...”
Reviewed October 24, 2011

PJ Clarke’s in New York is almost an institution with its ambiance and food of a “real” saloon. São Paulo’s PJ borrows the ambiance and dishes, the jukebox and the Guinness.
But although very good, it’s not the best burger in São Paulo. With the same New York’s feeling, you can try Butcher's Market. That’s really good and cheaper. Maybe the best burger in the city. But also for a Brazilian experience, why not try “Ze do Hambuger” or “Hamburgeria Nacional”? Wonderful burgers ….
