Academia da Gula is an authentic Portuguese Bar and Restaurant

That is a Portuguese restaurant with a unique decor that offers a typical European cuisine. Created by an authentic Portuguese descendant from Barcelos (Dona Rosa), Academia da Gula is definitely one of the best Portuguese restaurants in town. Famous for the dish prepared using codfish, this house offers a delicious 'Bacalhoada' al olive oil and onion. Unforgettable!

Pretty close to the Ibirapuera Park, Academia da Gula can be a great destination after jogging. The restaurant's working time dictates the mood and suggests lunch as a main meal or happy hour. It's definitely not a place to remain after hours.

Famous for been a great competitor at Boteco Bohemia's competition, this restaurant offers every year, a good option as 'petisco' (snack in portuguese). Try out the 'Costelinha em Vinha d'Alhos com Farofa Crocante' (Ribs in wine and garlic with crunchy manioc). You won't regret.

When: Monday to Friday, from 7am to 10pm. Saturday, from 9am to 5pm.
