Have been going to Rubayat for nearly 25 years, as my family is an avid customer. During lunch today, there was a tiny dead maggot on the steamed vegetables. Politely, I told the waiter, which then told the maître. He came a little later sincerely apologizing and saying that my buffet was on the house. Of course I was disappointed,... More

Rubayat is a highbrow steak house in Brazil, with excellent option at reasonable prices. Everything is good, not only the meat, but also the starters, the chips and desert. Excellent option for a business meeting or to go with friends and family.

In Sao Paulo for a few days of meetings and we went here on our first night. Brazilian barbecue was very good and kept coming until enough indicated. Intersting selection of breads and starters, not the cheapest around but good value for the quality.

The service is very professional and welcoming, and the place is much bigger than it first appears from out front. I am not impressed when the waiters bring items to the table as soon as you sit, especially if it is not made clear that all the tasters are chargeable. The food was well produced and tasted great. There were... More

The 3 course special included a salad, appetizers, breads, main course and dessert for a reasonable price. The steak was cooked to the correct temperature and was tender and delicious. They featured an excellent selection of wine, including a featured house special. The atmosphere was quiet and calm, and the wait service was great. The desserts were wonderful. Very reasonably...

Located in the buzzing Faria Lima, Sao Paulo's fancy, fashion and business center, this restaurant is indeed excellent. Quality of the food is excellent and the service is excellent too. Ambience is stylish and nice and specially convenient for business meals. Certainly not cheap but excellent value for its high price.

Be careful with the starter salads. 3 times the size i was expecting so a little wasteful especially with a fantastic steak to follow. Staff were less attentive that other places but a great night was had by all in our part of 18.
