We got lunch there. The food is ok, enough. The ambient looks great. But the service is soooooo sloppy. The owner looks to help the service but he forgets some clients requests as he engages talks with old friends (LOL). They take very long to get orders and to bring food. The price is a bit expensive for its quality.

One of my my favorite restaurants after many business trips to Porto Alegre over the last years +10 years. I find their food delicious. They have something that I like a lot that is duck meat and they do it very very well. They also have good pasta and fish. The food is really well done. Everything is awlays fresh... More

We enjoyed our dinner at Orquestra. The setting is lovely--like a French Bistro but in the heart of POA. The service was excellent, as was the filet (the fish was just okay). There are many shops and restaurants in the area so it's a great, lively evening destination.

Excellent food! A real and decent cooking in Porto Alegre. The wine cellar also deserves congratulations. Great jazz sound in sorroundings.

I was first attracted by the pitoresque entrance of the building. I confess I expected more variety but the food was very very good, fair price, nice atmosphere.

So the Pots Orchestra name is so appropriate. And every orchestra has a conductor. In this case the presence of Adolfo, the proprietor, always careful, taking orders and suggesting options, combines perfectly. Located in the busiest area of the night in Porto Alegre, the romantic atmosphere and pleasantly decorated, seems to be made to escape to the rush. The Sorrentino... More

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.

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.

The atmosphere is taken from a bistro. The 20's house, climatized, with large windows, authentic floor and adornment, fireplace and focalized lighting, has an appropriate ambiance for a romantic dinner. In it's contemporary menu, the highlights are fishes, steaks and lambs. It's an apreciate local for business lunch.
