Great food, plenty of character, probably not for vegetarians!!!
The food consists of a buffet with salads, rices etc and then you are served at the table with big skewers of meat from which portions are cut. The meat was fantastic, especially the steaks.
Some of the staff spoke English.
The dance (etc) show was also really good and added to the atmosphere - even though we went on a Tuesday and the huge restaurant was quite empty there was a good atmosphere.

Galpão Crioulo is that kind of place that every tourist has to visit in a city.
It is touristic, ok, but it is indispensable if you wanna get a short notion of Rio Grande do Sul´s culture and background.
The food is fine, plenty of good meat.
Some hints:
They first offer you the Complete Rodízio (R$ 47,00), but if you are a not a meet maniac, there´s the Mini Rodízio (R$ 27,00) what gets you several kins of meat as well, salad, other sides and dessert included.
They may discuss the price if you bring a group of at least 15 people.
Pay attention to the price of the beer, R$ 7,50 a 600ml bottle.
There´s a folk show around 21:45. Bring your camera and take a photo with the artists after it. Confirm the time in advance.

Galpão Crioulo it's probably the most authentic Churrascaria of Porto Alegre. The churrasco served there has the same quality of the best Churrascarias of the city, perhaps among the top 3. The great differential of the house is the decor and localization. Situated in the edge of a very beautiful park, named Parque da Harmonia, and next to two federal buildings. The localization could not be better. Once you are inside, it's when you realize the big difference to the others Churrascarias. It's about the decor, based in the model of the CTGS, what means a kind of Center of Gaúcho traditions . Just to explain, "Gaúcho" are the nickname of any person who lives in state of Rio Grande do Sul, whose capital city is Porto Alegre. They were the first settlers of the land and till now, some of them, preserve such cultural characteristics and ancient traditions.

The Menu of house, besides the wonderful and well prepared Churrasco, has a large buffet with salads and others traditional side dishes, that usually be served with Churrasco. Sometimes, during the lunch or dinner they usually perform a folk dance show , very enjoyed by the tourists. After your meal you can visit the shop inside and buy some traditional products of the Gaúcho culture.
