Some friends from Porto Alegre brought my husband and I to the Raven Restaurant at the "Cidade Baixa" a bohemian neighbourhood, in Porto Alegre.The place reminds an old European tavern and its located in a nice renovated old house from that area.It was our first time going to this restaurant but I am sure it will not be the last. Their cuisine is outstanding. The chef is Julio Cefis, an Argentinian that migrated to Brazil and is using all his cooking experience to offer high quality steaks with Brazilian ingredients for side dishes prepared in a delicious way.I had the entrecot Raven, which is accompanied by a pure of "mandioquinha" (a type of root similar to manioc) and grilled tomatoes. It was really goo!They have also a good wine list and a friendly and good service. The chef likes to go around the tables to greet costumers and he is a good chat.

There is literally nothing bad to say about this fabulous place. The pictures tell the story, this is truly the finest atmosphere in Porto Alegre to have a relaxing lunch in a beautiful semi enclosed open and airy space looking directly on Ipanema Beach and the River. Magical.The food is excellent and they even have a very good microbrewery on site featuring excellent beer. Homemade traditional deserts to die for. As good as the beautiful space and fine food are, it is the warmth of the family and the friendliness of the wait staff that shines the most and will keep me returning to my favorite lunch spot in Porto Alegre. The waiter even did magic tricks for the children and spoke English with me. The owner and his mother felt like friends by the end of my stay.Honestly, for a romantic meal or a lunch with the whole family, there is no better restaurant I would rather spend an afternoon in Porto Alegre.Thanks Chris, for the great rating.

This fabulous restaurant is a treasure. I never would have found it on my recent visit to Porto Alegre without the the local knowledge of my dear Brazilian friend.This reminds me so much of small trattorias I have stumbled on in Italy and to find it in Brazil was a great surprise. Atelier de Massas is Old School Italian in the best possible way. It features superb pasta and fresh salads along with a deep wine list featuring the excellent wines of Southern Brazil and a fantastic appetizers in an open display on ice (you have to see this to understand). The wait staff was gracious and knowledgeable. We had such a good meal here amid the cozy ambiance of a well-loved family restaurant that I cannot say enough positive things about it. Not to be missed
