Although the crepes were passable, they were far from the best I've tried. The place itself, is unorganized and a bit chaotic, but I think that's exactly what a lot of people find charming about it.

On a positive note, the staff was very friendly and the mango caipirinha I had was delicious.

It's a kind of fast food restaurant, with friendly staff, that offers a big variety of salty and sweet pancakes.
We tasted three delicious pancakes. One of them was made of chicken and cheddar cheese, and other of spinach, corn and bechamel sauce. The sweet one was filled with "dulce de leche" and coconut. Yummy!!!
The negative point is that they don't accept credit card!!!

We had heard about this place from people at our hotel and the first time we walked by it, the place was packed. We went the next night and had really good desert crepes. We enjoyed it so much that we went back there for an early dinner the next day. What makes the place is that you can see the guys making the crepes up front. The staff was very friendly and helpful. When we went back the 2nd time they greeted us like regulars! This is a must visit when in Buzios. Note that it is cash only.

Restaurant gets a lot of customers due to its fame and good food. Though it is disorganized and one must fight for a table on busy evenings. Restaurant staff does not organize a line in order to accomodate people on a first come first serve basis.
Waiter started laughing when asked if there was no line for arriving customers.
Our solution was to leave without ordering anything.
For a place as famous as Chez Michou, there should be a host or hostess organizing a line and waiting time for tables.
