Freio de Ouro is a good option when looking for beef (churrasco, barbecue) in Porto Alegre. The place is nice and comfortable, and prices are OK.

This is not the best meet you can find in Porto Alegre, and buffet also is regular, but place is clean and the food os trustable.

Meat was outstanding - a true revelation. Salads and sides very good but not quite the same level. Very friendly and attentive staff.

Our local friends suggested this place as it is affordable but good. It is typical buffet style and although at the peak lunch time, we found the service to be quick and at an acceptable level. Not sure why the complaints from others I have read. Nice selection of meats from beef to pork to chicken to chicken hearts. Also... More

This barbecue place is relatively cheaper than other barbecue places in Porto Alegre. The meat is overall good, but the service is terrible. The waiters are in a bad mood and are not helpful at all. I've asked for a medium-rare picanha and the waiter gave me a well-done piece. When I mentioned the piece was well-done he took the... More

This is a typical rodízio in Brazil, where people go to eat meat. I went on a weekday and it was cheaper but what I didn't know is that they only serve the good meat on weekends! Cheap day, cheap meat...and they only tell you that when you are in the restaurant... terrible service. I only recommend if are ok... More

That restaurant has a wide variety of good meats, a good salad table and is not expensive. The service is on hurry and the environment is a bit noisy, so I don't recommend it for a fine dining or special occasion, but just for a rich meal.

After a year since opened, Freio de Ouro has consolidated as an excellent option in the middle segment of Churrascarias (barbecues houses) of Porto Alegre. You can find the best cuts of Churrasco at a very good price. The house has yet a good buffet that always accompany this kind of meal. After you be seated in your table and... More
