One would expect Brazilian food by the name. Nope. Mostly a crepe and pannini place. Both the savory and the sweet crepes are very good. Best part is the people watching, It is located in San Fernando Plaza, which became my favorite plaza in Guanajuato during my recent one month stay studying Spanish. Mostly outdoor seating. Service is good and... More

I had a tasty spinach crepe, my husband had a delicious ham sandwich with side salad. Good lemonade, decent coffee.

Fabulous location at the back of the San Fernando Plaza and was quite a hangout in the past. Though never stylish or perfectly hygienic, it has now become a non-favorite with most locals due to grimy salsa containers, slow and poor service, lack of decent coffee, same ordinary menu, and crabby owners. Too bad! because it was a nice place... More

Just went there for breakfast. One bite was all it took to realize the food was basically unedible. If your in Guanajuato do yourself a favor and go someplace else. We are travelers that love and know cuisine.

11 year old's perspective: The atmosphere was awesome! Adult's perspective: The best aspect of this restaurant is its atmosphere. There are several outdoor, umbrella-covered tables just below a shade tree on the edge of the Plaza de San Fernando. In nice weather, you can sit outside and enjoy the scenery both in the daytime and at night. There are an... More

I am a HUGE fan of crepes and can be a finicky eater. I had the queso blanco y championes and it was not tasty. The cheese was a slice of white gouda (not sure where they found it) and the mushrooms were from a can. Come on. We are in Mexico. Fresh is sold on the steps in the... More

Mmmm...ate here twice in one day! The French-inspired cuisine is pretty good even if it isn't all that memorable. The ambience is what really gets you. The location in a quiet, quaint plaza is fantastic and the outdoor seating is so pretty...especially at night. If you've had your fill of local food and would like to just eat a light... More

Dining on the Plaza de San Fernando was very nice; unfortunately the restaurant was out of a couple things we initially ordered, and the crepes were soggy, but tasty.
