This place truly has excellent meat. One of the best I've had. We had the "Assado Gaúcho" with salad and mashed potatoes. The sides could've been a bit better. Service is very good and friendly. The restaurant is good for both meetings or couples. Had cheesecake for dessert which was ok, nothing special. So I would say that this is... More

Good place to start your love affair with Brazilian meat and Brazilian cuts (other cuts are also available, but most beef is local). Great selection of local and international wine. Excellent value, attentive service. Deserts are maybe not their strongest side. Stick to the meat.

I really like Varanda! I recommend it if your looking for a cozy place where you can have good meal. The meat is amazing, and I always choose the birô-birô rice and the farofa da casa to go with the main course! Delicious!!!

We were three couples everyone having a different cut of meat. They were all cooked perfectly and as ordered, just as at earlier visits. With the couvert you have the choice of a tossed salad or caesar salad. As side orders we prefer farofa da veranda and rice biro-biro. The service is quite good and the prices reasonable considering the... More

This is an usual place for my business meetings. It's a bit overpriced especially wines. To be within budget and still look good I pick some of the nice Rioja wines. They will be perfect along with the heart of picanha and the local specialty sides such as chips "soufflé", carretero rice, etc.

Varanda is a great place for business dinners, specialized in beef. They've got authentic black angus.

Staying in Jardins

Neighbourhood Profile
Located just below important Paulista Avenue, Jardins is the junction of four smaller neighbourhoods: 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 neighbourhood 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.
