For a take away on Sunday it was a distant representative of a barbecue. Meat was below average quality.

This is definitely not what I was expecting according to previous reviewers. Service was not good at all, slow, and kind of rude. It almost seems as they would give a different attention to their known customers, but not to new ones!! Quality of the food was sub par. Meat hard, polenta drench in oil. I wouldn't try this place... More

Barranco exist many decades. Good quality food at reasonable prices. There are special meats. The pork tenderloin with cheese has been better. Ask a meat and go in the basket of salads which you can repeat at will by a single price . Try the crispy thin polenta ; with or without cheese ...

Barranco exists since I remember Porto Alegre. It has a nice Beer Garten and good meat. It is one of these places that survives for years, what implies they must add value or they would not be there anymore.

This is certainly one of the best options in the city. You will find a typical barbecue (churrasco). Pork and fillet steak are excellent ideas.

This is a true classic. Over 40 years and going strong. Excellent meat in a variety of cuts, always perfectly made to the customer's taste and served a la carte. A salad trolley circles continuously with a big selection of vegetables and greens, brought in fresh every morning. A veteran team of waiters knows the customers and makes sure everybody... More
