The food was amazing. "Simple" food, but not the same you can prepare at home. There´s always something different on the flavor, but something that tastes like home food. One of my favorites in town.

You have to eat here if you are in São Paulo. It's worth the drive downtown and the wait! They serve typical Brazilian food with high quality ingredients and unique recipe twists. The caipirinhas are the best! Order the Coxinhas to start with. For main...More

Huge lines, more than one-hour wait , small tables in a crowded space. The food is not bad, but It is not worth the high cost. In summary, a poor quality/cost relationship.

Excellent bar atmosphere, food and caipirinhas. Started with moelas (shared), then galinhada and steak tartar, all very good. Together with caipirinha do Norte (caju and lime). Recommended.

We stumbled onto this famed spot, bar da dona onça, while looking for a place for dinner after our meeting. The menu is extensive and relatively expensive for Brazil, but the food is very good. While this is categorized as a "dive bar," uninitiated expats...More

Part of the historical centre of São Paulo, República
was once a fancy residential area. República Square
holds a craft and food fair every weekend, right by
the subway entrance. Nearby, one of the
neighbourhood’s main attractions is the Italian
Building, where you can see the city from the 42nd
floor. The Copan Building also deserves a close look,
with 1,160 apartments and a huge floor area that
