Barranco have good meats and a comfortable atmosphere. You should try the potato salad and the Lombinho de Porco. Entrecot is always a good option. Barbecue in porto alegre is like no other in the world

It's a traditional steakhouse in Porto Alegre with reasonable but attentive service. The cost-benefit is good and the atmosphere is pleasant. The requests serves two people and the steaks are great. Rice, fries and the fried polenta are very oily but tastes good. It is a good place to know.

Simple, with tables below nice trees, this place is packed with locals on weekends, and is open everyday year round. Salads are per person, meat is ordered on the menu. They have a nice selection of beers!

I visit Barranco often when I am in Porto Alegre and we know the place for many years. We absolutely love the place, but the experience this week was not as good. We ordered the lamb and the pork loin and neither was of good quality. The lamb was overcooked and the pork was undercooked. We will be back due... More

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
