“Such a different experience”
Reviewed 27 August 2012

I've been many times to this place, and every time I can't help feeling like eating at grandma's. Hidden on a tiny street on the Northern part of São Paulo, far off the beaten track, this place offers probably one of the best esfihas in town. The desserts are also worth a try, as well as the natural juices. There is absolutely no decor, just a steep ramp that gives access to a multitude of adjoining rooms where people eat in tables very close to each other -- so it's impossible not to think this place as cozy despite, as said, the "unornateness". Yes, it is quite expensive, but if you are (truly) willing to pay you probably won't be disappointed.

“Best food ever”
Reviewed 29 May 2012

I've been there once more yesterday with my "kids". It is a wonderful place if your wish is to enjoy a delicious meal! You can taste each and every condiment there is in one plate.
A simple ambiance with great food!
You must try this. Away from the highlight places, but the one place to eat!
