Amadeus is like going back in time.
Aged waiters wearing white jackets, 70's furniture and an 80's feeling.
Very quirky, but sincere people perhaps not aware that the world has moved on.
Decor is dated, located in a hotel.
Wine list is comprehensive with choices from around the world.
Food is fantastic - we all had seafood and we were all very happy.
Reasonably priced in a nice part of Sao Paulo.
Service from the aged men was exceptional.

I went there because of the good critics on trip advisor. They are accurate, the food is awesome, the chef knows how to combine flavors and the result is a superb dinner. 
The ambience is good and the service is also good. The only issue they not speak english and a few spanish so is lack of communication but is a
Minor issue due the quality of the experience. 
When you sit, they bring you some bread and hors d'ouvre: Cobb croquette, salmon, a shrimp kabab and petit pois cold soup. All excellent. 
As entree, I have the moqueca (fish stew) that is the best choice. A colleage has the tuna which was excellent also. It canes which fresh artichokes and mushrooms. 
As a desert we share the three coconut sample: a must. 
I am very happy with my choice.

Excellent food, but not the best setting. This restaurant attracts old folks, but the food IS first rate.

After several weeks in Brazil (from north to south), this restaurant proved to be the crowning dining experience of our stay. We started with a sumptuous cold seafood platter that was by far the best I had in Brazil over several weeks and numerous tries: this was excellent by local standards, including lobster, clams, amazing oysters –which I do not generally like-, shrimp, mussels, and others. It came with dipping sauces made in-house that were exquisite.

However, the most amazing dish (which I wish I could remember the name of, may have been moqueca) was an authentic Brazilian fish stew that was THE BEST fish stew I have ever had: perfectly cooked fish with a perfect combination of spices and a medley of veggies and including perfectly cooked banana slices, of all things, in a coconut milk sauce: it is presented in a cast iron sauce pot and is served onto rice by your waiter. This is a must-try if you go to this restaurant: I have had hundreds of fish stews around the world, and this one takes the cake.

The service here was outstanding, with nice touches like bite-sized appetizers and pallet cleansers such as homemade sorbets between courses. We arrived dressed casually without knowing this was a relatively high-end restaurant with a very elegant setting: we were greeted courteously and immensely enjoyed our evening, which included a live pianist. There is also a great wine selection and great pairing recommendations by the highly trained staff. It is excellent food, excellent service and an excellent overall experience, and your bill will reflect it - although not significantly more than you would pay at a high-end North American restaurant: the platter, for example, was around $125, the fish stew around $50. The wine pairings are where it starts to turn into a runaway night. Worth it for a truly Brazilian higher-end dining experience.
