Went there to unwind after a busy weekend. Attracted by the band, stayed for the interesting, varied (for Brazil) beer selection. Food looked good, albeit a little pricey by Brazil's standards. Will return.

Busy at the weekends. The meat was extra tasty. Great cocktails. It's more expensive in the Vila Madalena area to eat out than in other areas of Sau Paulo, but at least it was good food.

I had some beer and Picanha. Nothing outstanding, good quality. I admit that the price was a bit above expected. Anyways... More

Terrible food. Yes! TERRIBLE! You can easily spend more than 50 US dollars only drinking few beers and eat something TERRIBLE that they have available. The bar is located in a nieghbourhoof which has plenty of bars. Choose anyone, except Jacaré. The most expensive terrible food in São Paulo!

One great night at Jacare Grill with friends. It is a restaurant (food is superb - grilled everything) and bar with the best crowd ever (cool and modern people). Try it when in Sao Paulo. Besides Vila Madalena is very cool neigborhood!

Staying in Pinheiros

Neighbourhood Profile
Exploring Pinheiros, a neighbourhood known for cozy restaurants and cafes, you will notice a youthful energy. Several cultural centres and institutes surround the area and even its main church, Calvário, hosts a traditional Brazilian “Festa Junina” - a celebration with traditional music, dance, and food during the months of June and July. On the weekends, residents gather at Benedito Calixto Square, a loud and crowded area where people enjoy live music drinks alongside the antiquities fair.
