I was expecting more when went to this restaurant with my family specially to provide my sons-in-law a "gaucho" flavour experience. The environment is nice, since the restaurant is decorated with typical gaucho stuff. They advertise a BBQ "rodízio" and side dishes of high quality....More

The best part of Galpão Criolo is the local dance and costumes show after dinner. As for dinner itself, their meal selection is great, but sides buffet, house wine and dessert are average at best.

This is a single very large room with seating for hundreds, and a stage area where one can see gaucho dancing. Having become a fan of churrascarias in North America, I expected something more amazing -- I have had better meat at home. The show...More

As I'm originally from Porto Alegre, this is the complete package. Serve a great barbecue Gaucho's style with some Gaucho's traditions on a small stage. So if you are a meat lover, be ready and with a empty stomach.

Very good rodizio,all you can eat, of meats and salads, with gaucho live music dance and acrobatics show. Touristy but near the city center. I believe it is a bargain at US$30 plus drinks.

Well, there you go with the best meat ever. True, pricey. But quality is guarantee. Just do not eat everything they propose you. Leave the cheese, bread, and pork behind and go ahead with picanha, vazio, and entrecôte. The latter is superb!

Food and show mediocre, service average , price is high for what you get in exchange - Highly say DON'T waste your time and money.
