Very good, tasty, cozy and charming French Bistro located in Higienópolis. Must try the French Fries ;-) I've order tuna as main dish. Was perfectly cooked.

One of a small chain of bistros in Sao Paulo, the ambience of this version of Ici behind the Consolaçao cemetery - a slightly obscure location - is recognisably Belle Epoque from the moment you walk in. Angled mirrors on the walls both to spread light and to enable discreet scrutiny of your fellow-diners, dark wood panelling everywhere, light fixtures... More

My wife ordered a truffled mushroom risotto with was tasty and very... More

Higienopolis are those neighbourhoods in São Paulo that hide nice places to visit. During my walking to loose weight I found this restaurant lol! Oh no! Of course I got in to try it. The restaurant does have much light what makes the atmosphere very cozy (although unlike bright places). There are a good number of waiters and ordering was... More

Seven of us for business dinner. The Waite staff took excellent care of us, filling wine glasses and patience while we enjoyed the friendly discussion. Food was outstanding. Desserts excellent.

Great for beer lovers. A large variety of beers but the place also serves wine and cocktails. Food is delicious. Must try the French fries.

Went there after a nice concert quite late (11.30 pm). The waiters were fast and, despite we were the last guests to come on, didn't pressurize us at all. I had an entree only (foie poelee, delicious!) and the portion was just right. If you're looking for something quick but you're very hungry go for a main course. Excellent desserts.... More

I am a frequent visitor to Ici Bistro given I live very close by. It is a well-rounded restaurant, with consistently good food, helpful staff and a nice atmosphere.

Staying in Consolacao

Neighbourhood Profile
Consolacao
Consolação lies between the old historical centre of the city and busy Paulista Avenue. It’s surrounded by the fancy Higienópolis neighbourhood, which makes it a very diverse place. The nightlife along Augusta Street offers visitors a variety of options to dine, dance and be entertained. Roosevelt Square, Consolação's main meeting point, is surrounded by fringe theaters and has become a popular skateboarding area. Right across the street from the square is the elevated highway known as “Minhocão.” Though it is busy with car traffic all week, it shuts down every weekend and becomes a leisure spot right in the middle of the city.
