This was my second supper at Gauchos. It was great again! Salads, rice and potatoes are on a buffet and the servers come around and will serve the meat which has been bbq. They cut it right at the table.

The hot and cold side dishes were varied and delicious…and the BBQ meats were incredible! 10 different meats that were steadily offered until we just couldn't eat another bite. Would definitely come back!

My date and I dined on the evening of January 10th 2015. We are locals and have frequented this restaurant on previous occasions for pleasure and business but this establishment has deteriorated. The evening went as follows: A telephone reservation was made with the request for a nice table. Arrived on time and recognized by the manager. The manager directed... More

I probably ate more meat in that one sitting than I did the rest of thr 364 days! But it was delicious. The chefs come round to each table with big skewers full of freshly barbecued meat (about 9-11 varities) and you have then cut as much f it as you want onto your plate. All the varities were delicious... More

Jan 1. I decided to start the year off right with a trip to Banff, a soak in the hot springs and a really great meal at Gaucho's Brazilian BBQ in Canmore. We arrived 45 minutes ahead of our reservation and despite the place being packed they took us in early. Before long we were headed to the kitchen to... More

You might think of a Brazilian Barbecue as a pure meat feast, but even the array of self serve beautiful salads, cheesy mash potato, rice and black beans etc were just so fresh and tasty and worth the money alone. Then there is the succulent meat which is to die for. All for a very reasonable price compared to similar... More

My roommate and I swear by this place. I was brought for my first time about a year ago and have gone at least a couple of times a month since. Not the cheapest dinner in town, but well worth it! I haven't had a disappointing experience yet - from the salads to the sides, the service, and of course... More

if you like barbecued meat you will enjoy this restaurant. There is great variety and everything is excellent. The meat is so tender and tasty. The salad bar is excellent but don't fill up on salad. Tip: leave some room for dessert!

Never done a review before. I felt it necessary to do so while still eating here. This place is hands down one of the best places to eat in Alberta. As a travelling tradesman I see a fair share of restaurants. This sticks out in the top 5. Every piece of meat was seasoned to perfection and of course you... More

Pretty sure the food is not from a sysco truck. Cannot wait to go back. Enjoyed everything but my favorite would be the Parmesan Beef. Salads and side dishes where an excellent choice and assortment. Quality was outstanding. Usually I am a nit picky eater and can find something wrong with every restaurant but Gauchos challenged me, nothing I could... More
