They have totally lost their traditional menu. They disn’t have anything to prepare in the time we spent there, only pizzas. Even the big potatoes were gone.

The meat (picanha) it was amazing and also the provolone with herbs. The baked potatoes was also very good. The waiters need to be more prepared, but it doesnt push down the experience at all.

Waiters not attentive to the customers, raw pizza, items of the menu were just unavailable, a lot, really lot of waiting time until they serve the orders. We had the impression that it was not that famous Gato Gordo from the 90's.

I have tried their new location in Capivari and if they lost their riverside location now they got a nice outdoor space perfect for people watching and to eat great food. During the afternoon and night they even had live music that was very entertaining.

I liked this place because it was a few blocks beyond the complete craziness around Baden Baden. They've got a nice big patio. Live music outside in the afternoons and inside in the evenings, at least on Saturday. Food wasn't anything special, but decent beer...More

Less than restaurant. its more like a summer camp camp. A good choice to high school dudes. Pizza is the only one safe plate.

Good option, now in a new location in Capivari Village. You can choose a big potato or a light eggplant like a pizza. I recommend.
