This is a old joint in town for meat lovers. The place has a gorgeous outside area, where you can eat bellow old trees --- a very, very, very pleasant meal whenever the weather allows for it. Outside or inside the food is excellent. It is a meat place (churrascaria), but the side orders are very good and the salad... More

Great steak house. Service is great and price is fair. Barranco is a traditional "churrascaria gaúcha" which offers meat made with perfection. If you are the kind of person who loves meat, barbecue, the real churrasco, this is the place for you. No doubt it is one of the best meals I have ever had.

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).
