This restaurant is very popular with well-off tourists and visiting businessmen. Located in the fashionable district of Jardins, it has very good food, attentive service, and a buzzy atmosphere, exp in the garden around the big tree. Steak is good but better elsewhere.

One thing that I love about the restaurant is the big fig tree in the middle of it. Get the table near the tree for a nice experience. Watch your head though. The selection of food is also great, the meat selection are various from Argentina, Uruguay and their local hero Brazilian beef. One dish that steal the show is... More

For me, one pf the top! It could be a little expensive but it has a delicious food and the surprise is to dine below a huge tree that is in the middle of the restaurant, the "figueira" (fig tree) that gives the restaurant name.

I visited Figueira Rubaiyat with several colleagues. The atmosphere and asthetic are really unbelieveable. The main dining area is constructed around a giant tropical fig tree, with an emphasis on 'GIANT'. The tree must be over 100 years old and the limbs literally span the breadth of the entire restaurant (inside and out - the trunk is inside the dining... More

I recommend this place if you want to have a dinner in a very cool restaurant! Try to reserve a seat under or beside the Fig tree that gives the name to the Restaurant!

The minute you step in this beautyfull restaurante you´ll know why im telling you not to miss it. There is a Giant "Figuera" tree inside the restaurant that makes the decor very special... Services is great. Meet is very good. Don´t miss the Picanha and the Papaya creme as a dessert...

Holy cow - this place is beautiful. I went with 5 business colleagues and the atmosphere was perfect for casual and relaxing conversation. The food was very good, particularly the deserts. I ordered tiger prawns and they were perfect. Others in our party ordered fish and were less impressed. I think meat is their specialty...but we ate half a cow... More

Staying in Jardins

Neighbourhood Profile
Located just below important Paulista Avenue, Jardins is the junction of four smaller neighbourhoods: Jardim Paulista, Jardim América, Jardim Europa and Jardim Paulistano. It is an upper-class area, offering a variety of things to do, including shopping, museums and parks. The neighbourhood is well known for “Oscar Freire”– the most luxurious street in the city, packed with high-end boutiques. In Jardins you will also find a trendy museum, São Paulo Museum of Image and Sound (MIS), which people often line up for hours to visit. If green space is what you're after, take time to relax at Trianon Park, a refuge in the heart of Paulista Avenue.
