“Good food in unexpected combinations”
Reviewed July 21, 2014 via mobile

They serve unexpected food combinations, it is a good place to try new flavors in different presentations! It is a little bit expensive and you can wait for hours if you dont have a reseevation.

“Very creative chef with locally sourced fresh ingredients”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

Try the seasonal 7 course lunch/ dinner. Most ingredients are local to south Brazil, but the food is not necessarily Brazilian per se. The service is very attentive and the staff very knowledgeable. São Paulo is one of the best cities for food enthusiasts and this one is up there on the 'must try' list while in São Paulo.

“Maní: a place to visit”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

Cool atmosphere, great service and the food match all the expectation for Helena Rizzo reputation.
We had no reservation, therefore we had to wait for 90 minutes! But I can't complain! We waited sitting in the waiting hall, drinking wine and trying the yummy starters (bombom de guacamole + bolinho de quinua).
I had the fish of the day and my husband the lamb. Both soft and tasty!

“Died and gone to heaven...”
Reviewed June 22, 2014 via mobile

Simply stunning, from the theatre of holding people outside the restaurant until it opens for lunch at 1pm to the corridor to get to the dining area which goes past the kitchen.

The bread is fantastic and also comes with rice/tapioca crackers, I ordered the Atlantic salad and the catch of the day with sweet potatoes, red onions and curdled goat milk.

A cocktail, water and a half bottle of wine still only came to 300 Reals, a bargain for the quality offered.

A real gem and quite rightly on the top 50 in the world lists. Go and you will not be disappointed.
