Great and food!

Great cuts of meat (a la carte), and many other choices of tasty foods. Also, a salad-bar-cart that rolls around and serves you fresh and chilled choices of green and vegetables. Only details I would complain is that it's an always full place, and the orders take a bit too long to get to you. Other... read more

Barranco is a longtime "must-go" for a barbecue in Porto Alegre. The meat is always the best, draft beer always really cold, service attentive, and extended hours. In a sunny day try to sit outside, under the trees. Otherwise, head inside. The menu offers more options, but stick to the barbecue and you'll have a perfect meal.

Barranco is a very traditional and family friendly place just perfect for a sunday meal for meat lovers. I recommend you to try their pork loin and picanha... Unbelievably tasty!!!

This is a simple stake house in which you order the specific cut you want. But please note that in addition to its excellent stake there is a salad cart that moves around tables. Be sure to eat at least one serving of their delicious tomatoe (Gaucho tomatoe) with some onion rings (raw onions) and their famous German potatoe salad... More

This a good place to go and to have a good meal. You have different options of meat, etc. Furthermore, the "bufet of salads" is always very good.

First of all, it should be noted that this restaurant is not rodízio (Brazilian all you can eat meat restaurant ). We ordered a Vazio, which is a soft meat but not as soft as picanha. The portion was quite big but the meat was too raw in the middle. When we ordered it back to the kitchen, it came... More

My last visit was a little bit disappointing, but apparently I quickly forgot and decided to give the place another chance. I do not regret. This time around the service was outstanding and the food was delicious. I had the lamb and the salad, which were great. I also like the appetizer sausage. The price is reasonable and the place...

It is a traditional steakhouse in Porto Alegre. Always full, but always very good meat and salads. Don't miss the radicchio salad, the Picanha and the seating under beautiful trees!! They also have a variety of other options and a very good service!!

I like Barranco because it is not one of those "all you can eat" barbecue places, very common in Porto Alegre and sometimes overwhelming. Very good meats, nice and cold draft beer, and the tables outside make this place special. The salad cart is a bit overpriced in my opinion. Last but not least, try "polenta frita" as an appetizer,... More
