Delicious dinner

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... read more

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

Traditional barbecue house gaucho style, where you choose the cut of meat being roasted on a spit, keep the standard of quality and attentive service for decades. Ideal for foreign visitors have idea of a Gaucho steakhouse. Be sure to try the pork tenderloin with cheese, spice that is not typical of Rio Grande do Sul, but accepted due to... More

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
