We stumbled upon this place as it seemed to be one of the few open on a Tuesday in Santa Teresa. The beers went down great after the walk up the hill. The service was excellent and the food was typical German. Not necessarily what...More

During our first evening in Brazil we ended up at this restaurant while really looking for another place in Santa Teresa....It had started raining and we decided to just go in without even looking at the menu. Unfortunately, after 2 weeks in Brazil, I must...More

Really only reviewing this place to make use of that title; but it was not good. German food can be bland and stodgy at the best of times and, as mentioned, this was the 'wurst of times. The service was poor and the waiter clearly...More

Only a small German restaurant but it served plenty of sausage dishes with ample potatoes and sauerkraut. The beer and wine were a reasonable price and the hosts provided quick, filling food. Not fine dining, but a good bet to feed a weary traveller!

In the heart of Santa Teresa, near some interesting shops. Small but with a fun, young vibe. Very meat and sausage oriented (German after all). Nice beers. Decent service, pretty cheap.

Santa Teresa
Santa Teresa is a bohemian enclave hosting many local
artists’ studios. The narrow, winding streets of this
neighbourhood were revitalised years ago, and visitors
can now stroll through this area to view magnificent
mansions dating back to the late 19th and early 20th
century. A highlight not miss: Museu Chacará do Céu, a
former mansion turned museum which houses works by
prominent Brazilian modern artists.

De Pfeffer a PimentaAdega do Pimenta foi criada por um alemao chamado Holf Pfeffer, que traduziu seu nome achando que os brasileiros nao conseguiriam pronunciar Pfeffer que significa pimenta em portugues.Antigo mestre cervejeiro da Brahma, Holf ficou encantado com as maravilhas do Brasil, principalmente com o lado bucolico de Santa Teresa. Era divertidissimo, de personalidade forte e cheio de boas tiradas. O que ele mais gostava era quando baixava a porta de ferro da Adega e bebia com os amigos e fregueses, ficava vermelho como um pimentao. William Guedes, o atual proprietario, era um dos clientes e companheiro de copo do saudoso Holf que faleceu em 1992.Em 1995 William se aposenta e ve uma oportunidade de transformar seu "bar" preferido em sua "segunda casa". Mantem a mesma decoracao com atmosfera da Baviera e a culinaria alema, acrescentando pequenos ajustes tirados de suas experiencias em viagens ao exterior.
