By far, this place tops the charts when it come to a great meal. The service was beyond exceptional and the salad bar and meat choices were, without a doubt, better than any that I have had anywhere. Every cut of meat was cooked to perfection and full of flavor. The 'gaucho's' were friendly, attentive and very professional. Be sure... More

I do not know how the employees are not obese. The food is fantastic, service great, the churasquiros know what they are doing. The manager taught me some words in portuguese. Obrigada for the best meal in my life.

We live in town and been eating here for couple of times especially the Lunch Raudizio, we just love it all the time. The other night last June 24th, we tried their Dinner for 40$, quite pricey but everything is great, more selection of meat, very juicy and tasty. For service: we could say the guys did an excellent service,... More

Lots of selection and majority are low carb freindly. Food is fantastic with bar-b-q hot off the grill arriving at your table continuously through out the evening. Great place for diabetics, or people doing Atkins, South Beach or Paleo diet :D

We ate here last week, it was the last day of our holiday in Canada and it was a bit strange to find such an exotic restaurant there..we were a bit reluctant, also because it was empty at that time (maybe it was a bit early at 12/12:30, but we are from northern Italy, and there we eat early)! But,... More

Great service, Great food and drinks, Great big belly absolutely full. The staff were friendly, happy and very knowledgable. Anyone who gives this a bad review should be cooked on the barbecue!

Gaucho Brazilian Barbecue is the invention of a Calgary entrepreneur. This is his second location, the first being in Calgary. The concept is easy enough, but one must wonder where all the left over food goes, after an evening. Be assured that the salads for the salad buffet are prepared daily. Many courses of meats are served, by chefs and... More

We were initially going to come here for dinner, but then decided it was a little too pricey for our budget. However, after not being able to get in at a couple of other restaurants in town (busy Friday night), we decided to give it a go. We indulged ourselves in the Dinner Rodizio and glad we came hungry. Great... More

The Salads were fresh and different and excellent as side dish for all the beef (excellent for someone who is on protein diet) - was expecting more variety other than so much beef (I do not eat Pork) ... only one lamb skewer, with honey mustard glaze that did not taste good, and one skewer of chicken wings ... many...
