I have been here before on my last visit to São Paulo. I had forgotten that they didn't speak English but just like the last time the food spoke for itself. It was delicious. I loved watching all the different cuts of beef that was...More

Beautiful decor. It's a fancy restaurant aimed at an elite clientele even though it is a chain. But the steak was absolutely amazing. Perfectly marbled ribeye with amazing accompanying dishes. I had a stunning wine from Sao Paolo itself. The service was 5 stars.

Good food (both steak and cheesy bread) but service indifferent at best - very strange approach to serving bottled beer (like wine !!!)

This is the best steakhouse in São Paulo for decades. Returning guest since 1984 excellent wines, dessert and of course beefs. Expensive . Around US$100,00 p/p with wine. But worth every penny. Mr. Alves a superb waiter.

Rubaiyat Faria Lima has rested on its laurels and has become a dinosaur. Some dishes are average but the formula is old. The service is appalling surrounded by an enormous pomp to disguise the inefficiency. Some waiters tell you that they have not received any...More

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...More
