I constantly heard about this place and was excited to try it last weekend. My colleagues and I waited for about 50 minutes, constantly calling waiters to make our orders, and were quickly dismissed with "we'll be right there". About to leave out of pure frustration, we tried one more time and ordered polenta and entrecot. Despite service not being... More

This restaurant is a old place that carry the same menu and excellent barbecue options. The salad bar is very good and the pork with Parmesan is delicious. Tap beer with perfect temperature and yummy fried polenta. Not cheap but is worth a try.

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.
