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 !!!)

I read the reviews and was looking forward to an amazing steak. Actually the highlight was the salad! It was super good! Steak was pretty average and I wasn't a fan of the "souffle potatos." I get that they are different and that's great but they were like stale Potato chips! Tables and chairs were fantastic. Like I said great... More

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 training.

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 apologizing and saying that my buffet was on the house. Of course I was disappointed,... More

Rubayat is a highbrow steak house in Brazil, with excellent option at reasonable prices. Everything is good, not only the meat, but also the starters, the chips and desert. Excellent option for a business meeting or to go with friends and family.
