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

We went to the restaurant last year, and were pleasantly surprised with the variety of meats offered. Unfortunately, we had lunch that day, so we could not take advantage of the full offering. If you intend to go, skip breakfast and lunch, and you still will not be able to eat all they offer..

This restaurant was wonderful. Lovely contemporary decor, yet definitivly Brazilian. Gauchos and gauchas were fun, friendly and attentive. The salads and side dishes, chosen buffet style, were varied and delicious. Great drinks menu, with cultural offerings included. And then there's the bbq....meat, meat and more.. beautifully cooked, often served, with great variety and taste. Best Bbq I've ever had.

We went to Gaucho over the weekend and had a great time. If you are ever in Canmore and like meat GO HERE!! The food was great. There were many things to try tn the buffet table, some that I liked and some that I did not really care for. Not to say they were terrible, just not my favorite.... More

a great place if you love meat. Not really recommended for vegetarians. The restaurant focus on grilled meats. The Gauchos go around and serve freshly grilled meats and carve them off skewers onto your plate. You can ask for specific cuts or portions. You may also ask for specific ways how you like them cooked. Pretty wide variety. They limit... More

Highly recommended to us by a friend who did reside in Canmore - he downplayed the decor so we were pleasantly surprised! Started with a Caipirinha to relax and then headed to the salad bar which had various choices to please even the pickiest palate. The wait staff were very attentive and of course the chefs that came around with... More

I've been to Gaucho's once before, and this time I decided to bring my two colleagues who had never experienced Brazilian barbecue. Our whole evening exceeded our expectations. The food is delicious, and I even witnessed the kitchen staff throw away the remains in the bottom of a serving bowl on the salad bar, wash the bowl and fill it... More
