We went for lunch. They have 2 choices pretty much one with picana( suppose to be the best cut) and one without. It's only a R$6 difference so go with the one with picana. We went at 2:30 and they didn't seem to happy as they close at 3. I would recommend going earlier there for you don't feel rushed... More

It's not the best Churrascaria in town, but you will like it a lot, I'm sure about it. When it comes to costs, it's a fair one, if compared to the other ones. You will definitely eat a looot of good meat.

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
