“A Hidden French Gem in Sao Paulo”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

My husband and I wanted to experience something new on our first wedding anniversary, and it was so very suitable that we found this French gem, given that our first international trip together was to France. We just L.O.V.E.D. the entire experience! The restaurant is located on a secluded street in busy Sao Paulo... A charming house (with a door bell!) + some rustic design elements (e.g. beautifully handwritten food boards, numerous wall decorations, fairy lights everywhere...) that really create a very romantic / intimate atmosphere and take you to a whole different place. We could have easily been in Saint Malo or Fougeres! We were welcomed by the owners who were very friendly and attentive throughout the entire dinner. As per their suggestion, we selected a French sparkling wine that was both fresh and fruity! Yum! We ordered the mini galettes as starters, and truly enjoyed the combination of flavors (funghi, goat cheese, ratatouille, brie cheese...). I ordered the Bergerac galette with goat cheese (yes, my favorite!), honey and roasted almonds, and it was to die for! My husband ordered the smoked salmon galette, which was also very good. We shared a Crepe Suzette as dessert. We are already planning to return since there were so many other great items on the menu, and... we did not have the chance to try their homemade ice creams! It is no secret that Sarrasin is a very special place, since it has earned the #1 spot on Tripadvisor, but we were really delighted. It really lived up to every expectation we had and we will definitely come back!
