I had a weekend to kill and O Garimpo was the perfect end to my little brazilian weekend splurge. Located right on Embu das Artes, a town that revolves on artisans and craftsmanship, O Garimpo offers unrivaled hearty brazilian cuisine. I went for a traditional caipirinha and seafood moqueca. Arguably, the best seafood stew I have ever had. Ever. If... More

Visited for lunch and on arrival the restaurant was empty. After we arrived it got busier and busier until people were queueing outside. Sat on the veranda area at the back Excellent menu and ambience. However some of the food was not great and not value for money Service very slow and WIFI not working

Great service and a quite tasteful food. At night, you can also have live music with some talented local band.

Saturday the 23rd of April was an afternoon of nostalgia. They had staged a rock and roll event. Each band or singer took us on a trip down memory lane. I could have not asked for more. Our hosts were very charming and entertaining. I can also add that the food is excellent.
