Service slow. Very expensive, specially considering what it delivers. R$154,00 per person, 8 shrimps and a salad with no season, only a non taste mayo. I would do better at home. It tooks more than half an hour to come the first dish. The courvet, I mean the breads, were old bread re-heated.

Truly an exceptional restaurant. We had a party of six with same day reservations. Wonderful selection of wines. I would recommend John Leon, a very nice cabernet. Good appetizers. Sea bass was great. Waiters very attentive. It is on the pricey side but well worth it. I recommend if you are visiting São Paulo.

Whenever I have the oportunity to travel to Sao Paulo I can not miss this restaurant. It is a very good option for Spanish food. It is a bit expensive so you have to know how to order the food. If the group of people is more than three I recommend the "paella". It is very good but for two... More

Celebrating my birthday at Don Curro Restaurant was a true gift. Having lived in Spain for a while, Don Curro made possible for us to revive what authentic "tapas" are about (from "boquerones" to "jamon patas negras") as well as an authentic Paella. A must visit for those who deeply appreciate Spanish food.

We've been there for lunch on Saturday and we've ordered a paella. The food was good, but prices are too high. The paella is well served, so you can order it for three people to share. We asked sangria to drink and it was really good, very tasty. You will spend at least R$ 180 per person. The restaurant is... More

Well, it's the 3rd time we've been there and I think that the major lesson was to avoid it in holidays. The paella is nice of course, but it was served cold and unfortunately we asked for the lobster dish and I did not see any lobster in that. The service (that usually is medium) was awful and I felt... More

This is an upscale restaurant that serves traditional Spanish cuisine. Its specialty is paella and seafood. The food is high quality and well prepared. The appetizer and desserts we had were heavenly. Pineapple with lime zest tasted wonderful. The meal ended with a drink that was a combination of ice cream and liquor.

Don Curro has a nice atmosphere with an average food that should cost half of what they charge. I went with my wife and we shared a Paella, it costed 450 reais together with two beers.
