We were a party of eight plus two small kids and had a very leisurely Saturday noon lunch to celebrate an anniversary and to update our acquaintance. The food was on display to be chosen and we had a hard time to decide what to pick, since everything looked delicious and the few dishes we actually had were very impressive,... More

Refined place to eat in Porto Alegre, very good menu : you can choose German dishes or international food. They have soft portions or full ( if you are very hungry ). Parking free next to the restaurant and wifi. One of my favorites is" Peixe a Baumbach". Don't forget the dessert : I recommend Apfel Strudel !

I have already rated this restaurant regarding its daily lunch buffet. This review, however, focuses on the even better dinner they serve "à la carte" every night except Mondays. As a german restaurant, the traditional german would be the obvious choice, and it is. I've ordered Rahmschnitzel many times, and It was always delicious. Nevertheless, the last time I've been...

Had the duck which was very tender on the a la carte menu. Draft beer was in bottle (?!) but light and delicious. Unable to comment on price

My title is German for "Good Food". I have all good things to say. The restaurant staff, food, and ambience were all very good. The staff was really quite attentive and several spoke English - a plus for me. The duck and schnitzel were excellent. The fish was good and the prices were quite reasonable. I would return, most certainly.

This is a very nice and traditional restaurant serving german food. They serve in a buffet style mixing german dished with brazilian dishes. Do not forget the Apfeltruddel.

I was there for the Mother's Day and it was a great selection. It is a very familiar restaurant, and they offer a typical German menu at buffet, including Einsbein, sauerkraut and apple strudel. The service was very nice and the price was very reasonable. The food is of good quality and prepare as home made food. Definitively will come... More

Porto Alegre has a few nice German Restaurants, this one is one of them. It keeps the tradition of its kind. Suggest to go there on winter time. The food is very reach, in summer is it is tricky.

Eight of us had dinner at the Ratskeller. We were met and seated by the owner, or a very good manager. I had Kalbhaxen, prepared as you would expect in a good Bavarian restaurant. The spaetzle was marginal but the hot potato salad was very good. A good choice for something different although the locals in our group had steaks... More
