Had an excellent badejo with grapes the first night, and a dry, overcooked trout the next. ( If you want a superb trout dish go to Fritz, across the street. It's an old reliable place). The service at Fred was also much better on the first night than the second.I might give it another try, but now I can't rate... More

This place has as its major star the "picadinho de carne" which is beef cut in small pieces with a special gravy served with white rice, eggs, "farofa" - made with brazilian flour- and banana...Reasonable prices, for such an expensive city as Brasilia...

For a plate of diced picanha (picadinha) in an informal, quite noisy atmosphere, surrounded by a fairly youthful crowd, try Fred´s.Not expensive, very informal (no dressing up), tasty food mainly of the meaty variety, and reasonable prices to match. Parking sometimes a bit difficult but they have the ubiquitous valet parking service, as do many restaurants in the same area.... More

I liked the place and the meal but the service was not good, taking long time to be served.

Great dishes, it's a german restaurant. Not too many options but PICADINHO dish is the best. It's a sort of strogonoff without milkcream. Amazing and big dish.

My husband loves this restaurante - he says it serves "real" food! It has large portions for a good price - any order is for two! I recommend everything, specially the "picadinho" and the duck (order one for two)!
