We went here for dinner last night and absolutely loved it! The staff were super friendly and attentive and made sure that we were looked after and that the food was too standard. We both had the seafood chowder which was incredibly good! Then we had the Steak and the Chicken main dishes - both were excellent and perfectly cooked! Will definitely be back!

This place buzzes with happy diners who are well attended by knowledgeable staff. The meals we had were prawns with butternut pumpkin and coconut ,while the other dish was ribs. To follow there was a deconstructed cheesecake and a flan. These meals were full of flavour and there were generous servings.

After reading tripadvisor reviews, we decided to spend our last night at Gramado's. We were not very hungry so we ordered soups. My husband choice was described as seafood chowder and the waitress said it had scallops and lots of seafood. The soup only had prawns ( from Vietnam) and was extremely heavy with butter and cream. My soup of the day was tomato soup so heavy with cream, I only ate 1/3 of bowl. Further, the service was slow although attentive when you were able to catch them.

Gramados, Owner at Gramado's, responded to this reviewResponded October 5, 2013

Hi the there.
Sorry to hear from your bad experience at Gramado’s on Saturday night.

We had a meeting this morning to discuss your review.

My wife, the lady that served you from the start, explain that she told you about a delay as you didn't have a booking and we had full restaurant. That is way took a time to get you a table.

When she described soup of the day as a Creamy Italian Tomato soup with Philadelphia cheese, she was trying to be clear, so was no disappointment when the dish was served to your table.

Talking about your prawns, it was a mistake from the origin of the product.
Its a variety called "Vannamei" prawns, not from Vietnam, fresh water prawns farming from Shore Mariner Company.

Our Seafood chowder in creamy based and there is butter involved in the cooking process (I cannot change this, sorry), but for now on I will check the quantity of seafood the comes in each Entree dishes the leaves the kitchen.


I remember talking to you for a good time, also speaking in Spanish for a lit bit.
I came to the offer your drinks a couple times and checking the table, but I recapture you saying that you had enough wine during the day and just water would be fine.

Anyway thank you for the review, it always constructive
.
We are still learning every single day.

Hope to see you another time and give a better night experience dinning with us at Gramado’s Restaurant.

Service was first class, owner sat down with us and helped us choose food and wine. We had the Brazilian dishes and were not disappointed. Good spot for a couple or family with nice relaxed atmosphere and plenty of choice on the menu
