Holy meat batman!

This was a very spendy place but if you want to go all out, it's just right. The whole experience was very one of a kind and I highly recommend it to anyone who is wondering about a fancy expensive place to impress someone.

I am a local. This restaurant has been open for many years and has some of the best décor in Sioux Falls. You need to be prepared to eat when you come here. They have adapted their menu over the years. When first opened, all you could essentially order were their skewers of fish, meat and poultry served by authentic... More

My husband and I come here most times when we visit the city. Their food is GREAT! We love the ambiance, and the variety of meats that the Gaucho's bring around! Save room, though, because it is filling! My personal favourite is the grilled pineapple! It's warm and sweet, and you don't need to have dessert when that comes around!... More

My husband and I recently visited Carnaval for the first time. We stepped inside and once our eyes adjusted to the darkness (it was very bright outside), we were very impressed with décor and the atmosphere. Our server was great! He thoroughly explained the menu and the process. The salad bar had both hot and cold items with a huge... More

This was hands down, one of the best dining experiences of my life. The ambience was intimate, the service was friendly and efficient and the flavors were amazing. I wish I lived close enough to eat here on a regular basis!

Great, fresh meat. Several different vegetables to choose from as well. And it was really good for $. Very fresh ingredients. We've gone only once, and it's been delicious. Only indoor seating.
