This is the churrascaria of Sao Paulo with the largest buffet. So if you have someone in the group that doesn't like meat, the buffet has plenty of delicious options to serve full size menus and not only side dishes!
Frankly if you go for the meat, you won't be able to also taste all the dishes of the buffet - but the meat cuts are delicious, so there isn't much need for the hot buffet unless you aren't feeling like meat!
The service is great, the waiters remember your preference of how the meat is cooked!

Great option for churrasco however expensive but also on the top notch of quality!

Ok, strategize how you will eat there. It is easy to fill up on the sushi, sashimi, ceviche, fish, cheeses, calamari, octopus, shellfish or anything else you can imagine at the salad bar. Don't. Save your space for the Picanha, chicken hearts, and other choice cuts of meat. Leave your medallion on green and then....after you can't breath anymore, take a caipirinha breather for 20 minutes and get dessert. The strawberries and creme are ridiculous. They taste like they have dried lady fingers in it that just melt in your mouth. The cheesecake, tiramisu and another chocolate mousse offering floored the other people in my group. We all rolled out of the restaurant when we were done and won't eat again for two days. Make sure your heart is in good shape and plan for a long walk home, if you want to fall asleep afterwards.

We had high expectations of the Jardineira due to the price (R$130 x 2 plus drinks, plus dessert), but were a little underwhelmed.

Positives -
-- Extensive seafood, meat + sushi offering. Definitely more than we've seen at other Churrascaria restaurants
-- Attentive service (but sometimes too attentive - see negatives)

Negatives -
-- We found the meat to be generally overdone (not for people who prefer rare beef)
-- Price doesn't include desserts, and we weren't told about this - the dessert table was wheeled to us and therefore we assumed it was included in the set price). We were encouraged to order from the dessert trolley & then charged for it. We ensured this was removed from our bill due to not being forewarned
-- The prawns didn't have such a great taste and were 'gristly'. We don't know whether this is just the Brazilian prawns, however, as we only tasted them at Jardineira during our stay in Brazil
-- Service - My boyfriend and I joked that the waiters were being paid commission based on the number of plates they returned to the kitchen. As soon as we de-shelled a prawn, the plate was changed. This interrupted the flow of our conversation; it was hard to speak for a few minutes without being interrupted

Coworker suggested this restaurant and it was an awesome! The meat was flowing and my favorite was the crispy pork belly, filet, beef ribs and the specialty cut of beef that I forgot the name of. Huge rooms and tables for party sizes of any! The place was huge! The salad bar was so loaded with more then your typical Brazilian BBQ . Highly recommend for a small or large group. Go hungry!

The cab driver told us it was the best restaurant in São Paulo and he may well be right now that the wonderful Antiquarius seems to have closed. Wonderful service, very good salads and a good selection of meat. No chicken, which was a surprise. And how the staff coped with two children rushing round the entire restaurant while their father paid no attention I can't fathom. But they did, with very good grace.
