Great meat and buffet

When you look for a Brazilian barbecue you may thing just about meat, but in this case you will be impressed by the salad buffet and and hot portions on your table. The waiters and staff are always there for you, and don't forget to try Caipinha.

All you can eat Brazilian restaurant with meat sweats to follow. This is a typical Brazilian fare with the frequent visits by waiters with various types. Great food and service.

This typical Brazilian meat restaurant (churrascaria), though not in the nicest or most convenient location, is well worth the visit. For the excellent quality and variety, as well as the attentive and friendly service, it is the best deal for this type of cuisine. The salad bar is great, and includes sushi and sashimi as well as a satisfying array... More

In a town that has more Brazilian steakhouses than you can count... Gaucho is the standard! This is a single location restaurant and truly a wonderful "meat" experience! Great & very eclectic salad bar with everything from simple salad to very fresh, but limited sushi! Then come the beef, chicken & pork... all incredible!! After all of that, do not... More

Went today after reading the reviews on here. The food is excellent quality, so much choice and quantity; beef, lamb, chicken, pork and the salad buffet is good too. On top of this you can still ask for chips, rice, beans, plantain etc. The service is very good and quick. The staff are friendly. I would recommend this place.

Brazilian BBQ as it should be: 100% focus on meat, all different cuts and tastes. You sit down and find already a small indicating which cut belongs to which part of the animal. This while eating delicious pieces of roasted? fried? bacon to die for. Ok, there is a salad buffet in the middle of the seating area, but you... More

Taxi driver took us for a ride, claiming he could not find the restaurant, and clearly wanted to take us to another steakhouse where he no doubt received a gratuity. we stuck to our guns, called the restaurant and had them instruct him with directions. It was worth the aggravation in getting there. I have experienced numerous churrascarias and this... More

I didn't receive any bribe to write this: absolutelly the best in service, food quality and atmosphere. The meat options are great, the salad & sushi buffet have the options you'll actually eat (very different from many bbq places where you find 3654 itens served on the buffet but "eatable" just 3 or 4). Impecable service, very professional and flawless.

I first visited this eatery in 1995 during a visit to Sao Paolo. The meats are fresh off the ranch and you know it immediately. This place set the standard for all Churrascarias in the world. My son was 18 yrs old and before this experience he did not like meat. This changed him forever now. The best delicacy was... More

This churrascaria is amazing - quite simply the best meal I have ever eaten. The decor is rather plain but don't let that put you off. The extensive salad and starter bars are impressive enough but the meats...oh my gosh....the meats here are mouth wateringly delicious and all cooked/seasoned to absolute perfection. The waiting staff were so attentive and helpful... More
