It is becoming a religion! A visit to Porto Alegre without a meal at Barranco is like going to Hawaii and not to swim. Fully trustable and first choice meat, prepared as you dream it but have a hard time explaining, with a pleasant explanade, ice cold chop and friendly personal: what more can you ask for? The only complain... More

In oposite to common sense you won´t find great steak houses in the state of Rio Grande do Sul. Despite their great tradition in cattle criation (or maybe just because of it) the Gaúchos tend to consider the stake house not a restaurant but an extension of their houses. If you are looking for a great service or a special... More

Worth the visit! Even after 1 hour queue on an extremely warm day, it was still worth it! Churrasco with a truly "homemade" taste. Really enjoyed it.

Best place to go is where locals go, for years or better saying for decades the most traditional Steak House in town, simple with great service and the amazing selection of meats. A great experience a place that you can go and understand a bit more of Porto Alegrenses life style.

This is a typical and very good local churrascaria, with GREAT steaks variety. It is also open untill late, that means whenever you want to go, probably will be open. On summer or warmer nights it is possible to seat on outside tables.

Barranco is one of the best places to have a steak in Porto Alegre: the meat is very good, the outdoor terrace is delicious, the draft beer is creamy and cold and the salad trolley is really something. You may find better cuts in Porto Alegre, but this laid-back friendly restaurant offers meats a la carte and a great lively... More

It is probably one of the oldest continue operating steak houseman Porto Alegre. My first time there were in the 60's. they manage to keep the same quality of fresh salads and a selection of good steaks, including the famous lombinho com queijo (pork with cheese on the Barbie).

The Barranco is may be the most traditional palce in POA, but it still so somewhat unique. Why ? - In a city full of place with superb meet, it still has one of the best - It is not rodizio style, and that is actually very nice - You have a wonderful biergarten, rare in POA - The little... More

It is an old and traditional Barbecue place for rosted meat. It is probably a 40 year old restaurant in Protasio Alves Street, very easy to find.
