I think this restaurant is intended as a fast food Churrascaria, the price is fair; but what I didn't like was that the grill food sits there for too long waiting for the costumers to come and it scarifies taste. Cooking is not on point, therefore having eaten in a really good churrascaria the day before, Bovinus fell very short... More

Just walked in for a quick late lunch. Good selection of salad and warm meals. Grill was also open in which you could choose fresh grilled chicken, sausages and other meats. Not sure how pricing went but we paid what we ate (plates were measured) and it was cheap and delicious meal.

This is not the best, but for the price it is outstanding. You can find better meet, and a better salad bar for 2-3 times the price. This is very good, but not as good as the more expensive places. But I know in US dollars, as a single person with a beer, I can get out the door here... More

The service was okay (no one seemed to know any English). The amount of food for the money was excellent. The quality of the food was good. The quail eggs were excellent, as were the hearts of palm. The cuts of meat were excellent and they were willing to cook to your specifications (although I would say most of it... More

Food was average, but plentiful. The desserts were great, but the rest was not up to the high quality I normally expect in SP. The service was amazing, though... which I found odd, but was happy anyway. Friendly people and OK food, so I might return.

Good value Churuscaria type food and buffet but, not as expensive as full all out Churuscaria. Less formal and just the job when you want an informal meal

Welcoming staff. Good variety of salads. Somewhat varied hot entrees. Meats ordered from a separate counter. Dessert bar with typical sweets. Attentive staff. Good value for the money. Will return.

Staff is very nice and always ready to help, food is average and not seem to be always fresh but you only pay 37 brl , drinks not included . It s not a gastronomic place but handy if you are staying in hotels around the area. The place is very big and you can seat large groups.

This place is always terrific that I go back every time I visit Sao Paulo. Not the best churrascaria, but the smorgasburg always is slighly different salads and hot foods with staple meats. Terrific place for lunch. Great value. This year it is 58.05/kg and they slipped in a higher 18% tip (higher than before).

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.
