“Fine restaurant”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

The food could be better. The location is good, decor hasn't change since the place opened several years ago. The menu seems to be the same, too. There are many good chefs in town nowadays, and surprises are welcome. Something has to improve. Food was fine, but there is no special reason to wish to come back.

“Very simple, with great food”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

It's kind of dificult to find, because it is a small door with stairs untill you reach the restaurant door, wich is always closed. So you have to ring the bell... After getting in you will find a nice place to have a relaxing and very good qualitu meal.

“Sinfonia de prazer!”
Reviewed 10 November 2011

Trip advisor scoes again! I was told be a friend to check out R. Pedro Chagas but didn't see anything exiting on first pass. But after checking here, this came up and the English review sounded great so I gave it a try. The owner and two waiters provided excellent service and recommendations. I had the Bacalhao na Chapa because I can't get cod done well at home and it was amazing. In case you do not speak Portuguese - the name of the restaurant is Orchestra of Pot & Pans and my title above is Sympony of Flavors which it was - pan fried with sautéed onions, peppers and olives....mmmm. There were many other tasty looking choices. A must for a visitor or a local in my book.

Myonly regret? I've been coming to Brazil for over 10 years and this is my first and possibly my only trip to Porto Alegre so I won't have a chance to go back. The staff seemed to know many of their customers well so obviously others do return frequently!

Note: I gave it a 5 on value. I ordered most pricy item on menu plus appetizer, beer, mineral water and desert. Total price with service was R$ 99. Some might call that pricy, I thought it was worth every centavo.
