If you feel like visiting a restaurant packed of locals, then you better go here. This is one of the most classical barbecue restaurants in town. It's a hidden spot, where you find the original Churrasco. I'm pretty sure that you'll have a blast trying all these different types of meat or chicken. Please, make sure you try the "polenta"...

Classic spot that has been around since 1967. I highly recommend fried polenta, fried aipim, and the salads are very fresh.

One of the best barbecues in town. If you are in Porto Alegre you really have to go to Komka: local people, good atmosphere, great meat and polenta and awesome service

Komka is a good option for those avoiding the "all you can eat" churrascarias. At Komka instead of having a waiter offering you food every2 minutes, you order salads and beef cuts straight from the menu. Food is good, service is fast and friendly. They prepare local deserts like Sagu. The restaurant facilities are quite simpli. This is not a... More

A traditional and cozy place to go. Honest food and prices. The location isn't the best to go by public transport, however easily accessible by taxi or car. The fried "polenta" is amazing! Absolutely not to be missed!

It seems and old fashioned eastern european restaurant but don´t get impressed by their looks. In fact, this tradicional place´s got a great food for very affordable prices. The service it´s nice and fast, and you must consider their barbecue, especially the xixos (beaf or pork with sliced tomatoes and onions in a barbecue spit). You may see many families... More

All right, you go to KOMKA for eating meat, but you'll be surprised about the artisanal beers selection they offers. You should really try some. And the desert is also great. Mind that this is not an all you can eat meat restaurant. And it is also pretty pricey and crowded.

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
