A Must!

This is by far the most amazing meal I've had!! The atmosphere was fantastic. The food was delicious. The staff were brilliant. I didn't have much of the salad bar but it was lovely. Now to the meat, what can I say very flavoursome! I couldn't outline just one dish as i loved them all. I would come... read more

First time at one of these restaurants. Salad bar was exceptional Very fresh with lots of choices and there were many unique ones including a kale salad that was very flavourful. It was really a great experience to try so many different types of meats. The server was knowledgeable and stopped so we could take a photo. Planning on going... More

We ate at this restaurant for the first time for our Wedding anniversary. We weren't sure what to expect, but we were very pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere was really good, and the staff were extremely accommodating and friendly. You start with a good choice of salads, pasta's and rice dishes then the Gauchos' dressed in their authentic attire come to... More

It was our first visit at Gaucho Canmore for lunch. Very nice atmosphere and roomy restaurant. There were 6 choices of tasty BBQ meat which were plenty enough and a selection of cold and hot salad bar. My favourite meat is chicken wings. Staff were very friendly, we ate slowly, and enjoyed the food very much. We sat at the... More

This was our first visit to a Brazilian style barbecue restaurant and, being the omnivores we are, loved every bite. Our server was wonderfully friendly and informative and the meat purveyors were all friendly, too. Vegans stay away, we wouldn't want to sit next to you either.

We enjoyed a delicious meal at Gaucho's during a weekend getaway to Canmore. The food was delicious! My favourite was the pork, but it was all quite tasty. It's a fun, interactive meal with the gauchos coming over very frequently. We should have slowed down and waiting between each type of meat as we quickly found that we were full... More

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
