If you want to eat great delicious beef don't skip this old fashioned restaurant. It's very affordable and there is no decrease in quality.

This is a very discret restaurant. There is nothing really fancy here, no frills. And that is it's secret! With a relative simple menu, they stick to the basic and make it good. During my visit, we noted lots of elders around. And this is a reference to what tradition means. Well priced, we had polenta, melted provolone cheese, and,... More

I went recently for the 2nd time this year. I had chicken the first time which was cooked to perfection but this time i had the fillet steak which was incredible. I could have had it twice. Two at our table had skewers which were huge and looked amazing but be careful with the Caipirinha's. They are very very very... More

Locals fight for it, so you get there at noon or be prepared to wait. Garlic bread, spicy sausage, or fried polentas shaped as French fries and cover with parmesan are a perfect companion to your beer or caipirnha. It is meat place that you can count on, cuts of your choice, salads are amazing and you can make whatever... More

Went to Komka based on other reviews. A little difficult to find but worth it. One downside was the staff did not speak English but we made do. Received a menu in English but didn't have prices so we asked for the Portuguese menu and worked it out. Having arrived at opening time of 1915 didn't know what to expect.... More

Probably one of the most traditional barbecue served in Porto Alegre. Good prices, nice people (the manager/owner is always there). Suggestions: Picanha, Lombo com queijo and Polenta frita com queijo.

This is a nice restaurant in Porto Alegre basically known by the locals. You have to arrive at noon or you will have to wait for a table. "Polenta" and Äimpim (Yuka) are good starters. The main course I would recommend any kind of beef. Fries are good. Try local dessert "Sagu" prepared with red wine.

Very nice place to have lunch. Great meet, good variety of side dishes and best sagu desert on town.
