Fritz offers typical german food in spite of being located in a charming Finnish village in Rio de Janeiro State. It is not bad, but nothing special. The menu has several options and we tried the kassler, which was good with the sauerkraut, but the typical german potates salad was just reasonable. You will find better options in the city,...

Conveniently located next to the towns touristic center, we were stopping by Fritz for a quick dinner with drinks. The home brewed beer sounded appealing. Despite the flawless service staff, the food and the unique beer turned out to be unpleasant. This is a once in a lifetime experience, because it is not to be repeated.

Os garçons são desatentos, esperei 35 min para poder pagar a conta! The waiters are heedless, I waited 35 minutes to be able to pay the bill!

This is a place for true German food lovers, pig knee eaters, potato salad fans, and all things German and fattening. It is lard galore at this place and people seem to love it! My grandparents, who LOVE German food, liked this place very much...though they thought the service was lacking and the food was not the best German food... More

Although there were 3 waiter at the door, none of them greeted me as I entered the restaurant. This also happened with the one waiting on my table and as I left the place. Food was too average for the price, but beer was good. Service has to improve a lot to make up for everything else. I'd never recommend... More

exactly what you need: in the center of Penedo, good service, tasty home made beers (lager), delicious German sausages and the price completely fair.

They were very busy which showed in how long we had to wait for our food. The potatoes which came with the meals were cold and two people had fish who said it was ok. I had steak with mushroom sauce which was very nice.

Steak meal for two with a couple of cokes cost £25. Good value and excellent steak! The pepper sauce was full of peppercorns and very tasty. However, too many potatoes on my plate! Great service. Highly recommend.
