I had this very ingenious dish of sweet water amazon fish in a foamy coconut sauce with manioc and fried onion in it. Delicious! Very expensive though. The brazilian champagne was very tasty ti go with it.

I like the place, charming comfortable I always felt welcomed going there and always enjoyed so much the food! Made with typical products from Brazil and perfectly well prepared! Don't miss there appetizers who are delicious and will make perfect starter with good capirinha or Brazilian red wine or fresh juice...

Excellent food, Mani has been the recipient of many international awards for the creativity and excellence of its food. It combines healthy and taste, savor and local products. Very good and creative. A very peasant surprise at every visit.

Mani was excellent! We thought the food, the ambience and especially the service were all stellar. The langoustine with jabuchicaba is unreal and is one of those dishes you think about long after you leave. I'd go back here over and over to dive deeper into the menu... highly recommend in São Paulo.

I have been very disapointed by the atmosphere and service. The restaurant promises a wonderful experience in fine dining, and it cannot be enjoyed as such. The food is indeed delicious, but the atmosphere is plain and the service average. I expected more.

The food is still fantastic and surprising but a lovely prompt to the owners/managers to put a little effort and and focus into training and service. We noticed that there was untrained staff removing plates from the table, almost cutting our throat in the process and on one chair a friend sat on a dirty coffee cup. Mani you are... More

This really is a special restaurant from the food, the design to the service. I visited D.O.M while... More

I booked a month or two in advance and utterly indulged in a "once-in-a-lifetime" dining experience. This restaurant is expensive (very!). The full 12-course tasting menu is priced at $R420 and a service charge is then also included. I was happy to pay this for the phenomenal food and experience, though. (Note: An a la carte meal - starter, main... More

Very famous restaurant in São Paulo. The food is good, very good, but it lacks this small touch of talent that turn excellent into brilliant. The service is rather amateurish and should be object of more attention from management. The visual of the place is absolutely not interesting. On top of it all, the prices are too high when compared... More

Staying in Jardins

Neighbourhood Profile
Jardins
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.
