What’s it like to eat at Alice and the Hatter themed restaurant in Gramado

I went to meet the Alice and the Hatter themed restaurant, in the city of Gramado, in Rio Grande do Sul. The house, which will complete 4 months of operation, is a real rabbit hole, with more than 800 m² and the capacity to take up to 250 people to Wonderland!

Arriving at the restaurant, we were already faced with a beautiful facade and a waiting room full of crystal chandeliers and floating books – for the uninitiated, the story of Alice in Wonderland was written in 1885 by the ‘British author Lewis Carroll. , and first adapted to animation in 1951 by Disney Studios. From that moment on, other films and various works inspired by the girl’s story have been released and, even today, Alice in Wonderland enchants young and old!

To enter the main hall you have to go through a curtain … Behind there is Absolem, the wise blue caterpillar who in the work is the keeper of the oracle that keeps all the secrets of the Underworld: it is she who welcomes customers.

When we enter the hall, we can already see a statue of the main character and the ambient light is a bit lower, which gives a feeling of mystery. Tables are nicely laid out, and seating varies between conventional chairs and cushioned benches. The waiters work dressed as playing cards, in reference to the guards of the Queen of Hearts.

As soon as we sat down, the first pocket show started. The actors playing Alice, the Queen, the Mad Hatter, the Cat and the Rabbit appeared on the long loft of the room, singing songs and dancing – the costumes are impeccable and the professionals are fantastic! During the show they go down the stairs and dance between the tables interacting with the customers. The night I was there, a little girl was celebrating her birthday. Soon, her characters invited her to sit at the famous “no birthday tea” table portrayed in the film and sang “Happy Birthday to You” with the entire restaurant she attended.

Admission is served during the show, which is included in the experience menu. The Baú Encantado, full of delights such as salami croquettes and colonial cheese, deep-fried cakes and biscuits with pepper jelly – this croquette is amazing, very crunchy, dry and tasty!

Drinks at Alice and the Hatter restaurant

To get in the mood, we ordered themed drinks that will fill anyone’s eyes! Personally, I didn’t think the taste of specialty drinks was a big deal. They are ordinary drinks, more beautiful than delicious. Remembering that they can all be made without alcohol and are not included in the price paid, which ranges from R $ 31 to R $ 44, the price is quite ok by Gramado standards. Find out what each of them takes and their prices.

DRINK ME – R $ 34.00
Vodka, mushrooms, lemon, green apple, mint and carbonation.

ABSOLUTE – R $ 44.00
Vodka, green grapes, blue syrup, lime and mint – eThis is the most delicious and comes a lot too!

DRINK FROM THE HATCHER – BRL 44.00
Vodka, salted caramel syrup, lemon juice and Ginger Ale – It’s delicious, unlike anything I’ve ever had. It may sound strange, but I felt a fermented milk aftertaste, I don’t know why, lol. Ahh, a tip: ask for a spoon or straw to mix because the concentrated syrup at the bottom of the glass ends up making it very sweet in the end.

SINGING FLOWERS – R $ 33.00
Gin, elderflower, Sicilian lemon, fennel, egg white and edible flowers. – the flavor keeps what it promises, very floral!

ANNIVERSARY TEA – BRL 31.00
Gin, “Flower of the blue fairy”, lemon, rosemary and sparkling water – look, this is ideal for those who love the taste of gin (not me, for me it tastes like soap and perfume). But if it’s cool for your taste, check it out! It’s nice because it changes color when you mix the lemon juice that comes into the teapot.

I’M LATE! – BRL 33.00
Gin, carrot, Earl Gray. Sicilian lemon and albumin.

OUT OF HEAD – BRL 32.00
Rum, strawberry, maple syrup, lime and pink pepper. – the strawberry flavor is very striking so it ends up looking like a normal fruit caipirinha.

In addition to the specialty drinks, the house also offers classic drinks such as mojito, gin and tonic, moscow mule, negroni, caipinha and a few others – the price range for these is R $ 30. The menu also includes water, soft drinks, juices, beers and draft beer.

Dinner at Alice and the Hatter

Time to eat! There are eight main courses for adults and all of them can be accompanied by a salad, but you have to ask to come. We ordered three different types to try, the “Chapeleiro”: pork ribs roasted for 6 hours at a low temperature with barbecue sauce and rustic potatoes. The “Coelho Frango Atrasado”: ​​crispy chicken with fettuccine in cheese sauce – these two were very good, the ribs melted in the mouth.

Finally, the “Gato Fish and Chips” – tempura tilapia fillet. It goes well with rustic potatoes, tartar sauce and carrot pickles – this left something to be desired when it comes to fish. There are also other options for veggie beef dishes, such as mushroom risotto and a smash burger duo. Overall, the food is delicious, nothing too innovative, but everything is well served.

The children’s menu – for children aged 3 to 10 – has four options of dishes and all include dessert. You can choose between spaghetti with cheese sauce or butter with chicken; grilled entrecot and roasted vegetables (carrots, green beans, cherry tomatoes; mushrooms and pumpkin) accompanied by green parsley; the medium Smash burger, with cheddar cheese – accompanies the fries and the Chef’s Mini: rice, beans, steak and fries.

In the middle of the dinner we witnessed the second and last pocket show. In the end, all customers are invited to take a photo together with the characters at the tea table.

Sweets from Alice and the Hatter

To sweeten the evening, we ordered desserts – there are six options. We chose the “Queen’s Fondue” a milk chocolate cream with strawberry and banana and the “Mushroom” a petit gateau of dulce de leche with an amaretto hat made with Italian meringue and almond flour. I expected more from fondue, found it very similar to hot chocolate, only creamier. If you expect to eat that pure melted chocolate with fruits, know that this is not the case.

The other dessert options are the semi-sweet chocolate mousse, the salted caramel sauce, and the cocoa chips; coconut ice cream, toasted banana and peanut paçoca; Crumble, ice cream, apple in syrup, fresh strawberry, biscuit and red fruit syrup – we didn’t order this but the waiter finally told us it’s the most delicious – and finally the chef’s suggestion that changes from time to time.

Finally, we had a cup of coffee – this is also not included in the menu, there are three options costing from R $ 8 – and then we stopped at the restaurant shop, which has several items such as mugs and stuffed toys inspired by history .

How to get to the Alice e il Cappellaio restaurant?

The restaurant is located on Rua Wilma Dinnebier, No. 111, Centro, in Gramado and is open from Thursday to Tuesday, from 18:00 to 23:00, with two shows per night.

The easiest way for people who do not live in Rio Grande do Sul to reach Gramado is by plane, landing at Porto Alegre – Salgado Filho International Airport and then taking the highway to the city. The route is 125 km long and takes an average of 2 hours. Therefore, it is common for people to combine plane and car or plane and bus.

In terms of distance, the Caxias do Sul airport beats that of Porto Alegre: it is 70 km from Gramado. But due to the structure, the ease of the transfer service and the lower ticket prices, people end up opting for Salgado Filho.

Is Alice and the Hatter restaurant worth visiting?

Well, the experience is worth it for those who are movie buffs and love themed restaurants – if you prefer quieter dinners, without much interaction, I guess you won’t like it that much.

Of course, it must be considered that Gramado is not a cheap city to eat, especially in themed restaurants. But I found the price of the adult menu too high and the value of the children’s menu even more exaggerated! This is not a very accessible restaurant for slightly larger families, with four or five members, for example, although you can buy tickets in advance on the website for more people with a certain discount. However, if that’s the case for you, plan on spending a good amount of money there.

Overall the restaurant is beautiful, the service is great, the dishes are well executed and the shows are fascinating. My dinner was very good and I think if you are a fan, have curiosity and are willing to pay the price, the experience is worth it! There are many themed restaurants around that don’t deliver what they promise, but that’s not the case with Alice and the Hatter.


Did you want to take a look? Well then I have an idea! “A crazy, crazy, wonderful idea.” It’s time to start planning your trip to Gramado. Check the 2023 calendar, take a look at our page on plane tickets and don’t waste any more time, discover this wonderful city in Serra Gaúcha!
