Butantã is home to the main campus of São Paulo’s University, and this neighbourhood has a very different feel from the rest of the city. Within a huge green space, covering around eight million square meters, you can feel the fresh air while mingling with recreational athletes exercising along the streets of the university complex.

"Better than Rinconcito Peruano"
reviewed 9 October 2017 by Daniel V
Excellent food, service and reasonable prices. We have visited this place a couple of times with family and friends (including a three-year old boy).

Very friendly service and nice atmosphere. Good wine list with plenty of S American to choose from.
Go with an empty stomach!
