German Bruhaus in Penedo

I loved the location, just off the downtown area. The restaurant has a wonderful menu and selection of beer. I thought I was in Germany for a moment... I would definitely recommend this restaurant as the food, service, and great selection of craft beers were tops in Penedo

The food was not so good. We ordered bacalhau and spaghetti. The spaghetti was not so special and the fish was very salty. The waiter didnt take enough time for us and it looked like they where in a hurry.

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.
