Nice food, terrible service. No smiles, wrong order delivered and lack of interest from the staff. Not surprised as that seems to been the rule in Rio de Janeiro.

This place is nice for a fast meal. Is a branch - the original on the way to Petropolis - but products and menu is the same! I really LOVE the 'brioche the queijo' - fluffy bread filled with cheese, and the 'croquete de carne'. Desserts are also amazing - 'mil folhas' and 'apfelstrudel' are the best! If you are... More

When one travels to Teresópolis or Petropolis, there is always a stop at Casa do Alemão on the road, to enjoy a sample of German style snacks. It was a good idea to have a branch in Leblon.

A branch of the Petropolis restaurant, Casa do Alemao is famous for its croquette, which is superb. Although they created other varieties, I always lean to the traditional meat one. It has the perfect combination of a crunchy outside and a melt filling. I also like the sausage sandwiches, with home made products. The only thing that could be improved... More

Famous brand in the state of Rio, having a restaurant for decades at the highway between Rio and Petropolis. German menu based on sausages. Not many varieties though and no fillings at all not even onions??? Quick and expensive snack due to the location.

Do not expect any frills, the decoration is not particularly fancy, more the homework of a art student on a Starbucks pattern, but the food and servce are ok. We had a Pork Knee that was huge and tender, with boiled potatoes and cheese sauce. Definetely value for money. The Filet Sandwich was honest too, and we could walk away... More

We haven't found many taps here, but when you find a local brew this good, you don't need many. The chopp black is a delicious nitrogen stout. We also had the brioche with cheese and a cappuccino. The cappuccino was a little sweet but superb. The desserts (pies and cakes) looked great too - may be back just to try... More

Stumbled on this German restaurant and glad we did. Server was friendly and tried her best to communicate in Some English. English menu was available. We had the filet mignon which was good, patatas Bravas with cheese - also good, salad, and codfish croquettes (very good). The expressos with milk were perfect for a mid afternoon snack and came with... More

This is an old fashioned and very traditional place for light german food and pastry. The pastry is so so... They were originally a road stop eatery. Mostly, still are.
