Part of the restaurants in Pontao, it has a pretty simple menu, nice Brazilian flavors, and all the local beautiful people crowd. Very urban, and on the water so it nice. Sometimes they have live music, another plus. Our business group goes here a lot.....

Despite the name, this is not a German restaurant: only a few options of the menu are actually German, but the choices are extremely varied and cover an extensive range of Brazilian dishes and international food. Good service and quality cooking make this place one of the best restaurants in town. Also an interesting spot if you like to eat... More

Enjoyed an excellent dinner at this restaurant located next to the lake. The Caipirinha's were the best we had during our visit in Brasilia. The food and atmosphere was great.

Grilled salmon is very good. Restaurant overlooks the artificial lake. For ambiance, Bierfass is one of the better places in Brasilia if you have to be in Brasilia, but it wouldn't be remarkable in another more interesting city.

The location is nice, but there are better options nearby. Service is what you expect in Brazil, but the food is not very good. Had to send the meat and fish back to the kitchen, even though we order it very rare, it came to overcooked. Also ordered a vegan pizza, they were kind enough to make it for me,... More

You can go with your family or your friends. A very good option to happy hour time! You will find a nice menu and you will drink a great draft beer.

This place is fantastic, has the good view, tasty food, don't wanna going somewhere from here. I gave 4 points, cos waiters was not much attention to us, this place look like 5 stars hotel, and service must be the same. But service are so so.

Sunday lunch by the lake was lovely. It's a good place to relax, eat, and then stroll along the lake? Very good bacalhau and caldo verde. Very good juice drinks. But the porco picante sandwich was not very picante. The service was friendly but leisurely.

Just a great place to have a good beer, good German meal, excellent view and reasonable price. The service isn´t perfect however that isn´t a big deal. We will definitely go hear again if we return to Brazil.
