Bierfass is on the lakefront. Almost every seat has a good view. The food was good. I had lasagne which was quite good. The drink menu was great. I had something with fresh kiwi that was outstanding.

Years ago this was a great place to go with good appetizers to go with the unique caiparinhas. Now I still go for the view and the popcicle in my drink - but do not love the food.

Brasilia with its magnificent Oscar Niemeyer architecture is different to most cities as it does not have a town centre. The Pontao do Lago Azul is about the only place in the city where there are a number of restaurants in one place. It is a pleasant setting with views of the city across the lake as well as the...

This is a popular Restaurant in Brasilia, with a good variety of dishes from seafood, pasta, steaks and Lamb to just snack foods if your not in the mood for a big meal. Always a big crowd on the weekends but the service is pretty fast.

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.
