Food and ambience

Location and contact

Gaucho Brazilian Barbecue is located conveniently on busy Macleod Trail. Gaucho means ~ cowboy ~ and refers to our chef and owner Edmilson Rodrigues. Ede comes from the land of the Gaucho in the south of Brazil and has spent a lifetime introducing his food and culture to his guests. In our restaurant we feature a style of dining made famous in Brazil called, 'Rodizio'. Rodizio dining is like nothing you’ve tried before. To do it properly, budget an evening – or at least a few hours – and come hungry! Your barbecue chef of the evening will come around with massive churrasco-style skewers, each with a tender cut-of-the-day. Meat will be sliced straight to your plate, and it won’t stop till your table turns its card over to display the red side. To compliment your barbecue we feature hot and cold side dishes on our side bar. Our side bar is always changing to assure that our food is fresh and in season. Staples on the side bar include feijoada, the national dish of Brazil and bocconcini cheese made fresh weekly by local craftsmen. We recommend you try one of our traditional cocktails to 'open your stomach'- as Brazilians say! Remember to leave room for dessert like our traditional milk flan or the famous Barbecue Pineapple served on coconut ice cream and topped with guava sauce- we call it the 'Crowned King'! Gaucho has something for everyone! Come taste the experience!

We came as a group of friends and had a really enjoyable meal. All of us really enjoyed the meats. But the best thing about the meal was definitely the service. The servers were very friendly, and once they realized our table loved the pineapple,...More

Our server, Filipino guy, goes above and beyond. He is awesome. Their food is fantastic too, although we miss Bolero's grilled pineapple, and their lamb is not appetising at all, but we will be back because of the friendly and courteous staff. The loaded ice...More

Much like other Brazilian meat houses in Calgary. Service was good, meat selection was good and overall experience good. Salad bar is a fraction of other places, so if this is important something to think about. We went for the meat so not an issue.
