My wife and I came here for our anniversary dinner on the recommendation of the hotel hostess. Right from start to finish the service is excellent and the quality of food is phenomenal! It's not somewhere we would go everyday as its a little pricey but for a special occasion and the amount you get , it's worth every penny!... More

We are Canmore locals and we've been huge fans of Gaucho since it first opened here a few years ago. We've dined in a dozen times, and love taking guests there. But we especially loved their affordable takeout option, with a choice of meat and serve-yourself from their salad buffet. As delicious as the food is though, the management has... More

Piturella, General Manager at Gaucho Brazilian Barbecue, responded to this review

Dear valued Canmore customer, we are truly sorry to no longer be able to offer our take-out services. As our manager explained when you visited, our restaurant was at full capacity + with reserved guests for our special Valentine Rodizio and so we simply could not pull our grill servers from serving our dine-in guests to fill take-out orders. Although... More

I was in Canmore for a ski trip with friends. We found it weird that Canadians do not eat rare or medium rare meat. Every place we ordered rare burgers or steaks wold come back at best medium. By the end of out trip we were foaming at the mouths for red meat. We stumbled onto this little gem. We... More

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
