“Great fish and salads”
Reviewed 27 October 2012

A great self serve restaurant, and with a good variety of foods - and foods that were a different from the usual Brazilian restaurants. I had a delicious salmon steak. Also lots of different salads, which I had been looking round in vain for in other eating places.

“Great kilo restaurant, loved the salads”
Reviewed 9 August 2012

With 2 weeks on Ilha Grande we ended up eating at Biergarten 4 times. The kids loved the mix of food and we got them to try something new each time. They could also fill up on spag bol if required!

You have about R$4/100g and weigh each plate of food. You can try something and then fill up on your favourites on the next plate.

Only place we found with sushi, the mango roll is definitely worth trying . My main like was the extensive salad selection, after several weeks in Brazil eating fried food it was heaven to grab a plate full of different salads. Why don't other places serve avocado, pulses etc.?

Dishes change daily and seem to always include local dishes like a fish stew. They do steak but would not recommend as by the nature of the buffet style it has to sit there so go elsewhere and order a steak if you want one. Otherwise great.

I would suggest that they have more than one dessert each evening but not a problem as you can wander into town and grab a dessert from one of the several trolleys which are only R$3-5 each.

They do have a hostel and we had a noisy table with backpackers one night but that was fine as it masked the sound of our kids.

Would recommend as good value and great salads that we didn't find anywhere else on the island.

“Good food and great bar”
Reviewed 13 July 2012

We had a great time in the Biergarten watching football during EURO. It had good quality and well priced per-kilo reastaurant as well.

“Amazing range of food and tastes better than anything else on the island”
Reviewed 13 July 2012

Kept going back there as the food was just great. Each dish was really impressive and due to the extensive vegetarian and meat options this meant we visited the restaurant nearly every day when staying there. I personally would say it was the best food on the island by far.

“So much food!”
Reviewed 25 May 2012

Food by weight! The paella is unreal and they have a great salad selection. It's different everyday and great everyday. Closed on Monday's. Outdoor seating and right next to a great shirt store.
