Girassol Restaurante, Porto Alegre
If you are in the centre of Porto Alegre and looking for a place to eat then you could be forgiven for overlooking this restaurant. You enter the building through a shoe/clothing store then climb to the second floor. The first time I was brought here I would of walked right past the place without ever realising it as there. On entering you'll see a large room, well lit and cool with plenty of tables on ether side of the room. Down the centre there is a large buffet. You take a plate and move down the buffet helping your self to as may dishes as you like/can fit on your plate. Their is plenty of food to choose from and is nicely presented and well cooked.
At the bottom of the table you can ether weigh your plate and pay for your food or pay 19 reals to eat as much as you can. I like to take the option of eating as much as I can so I can return for a second helping, it is important to remember that one must leave room however for the fabulous dessert table!
Upon taking a seat at a table you will be asked if you would like a drink which will be brought to you. Finally before paying and leaving there is free coffee available on the way out.
I've enjoyed eating here and would recommend it to anyone looking for a place that sells good quality food cheaply.
