Reserved a table in advance of 1 and half hour. Told the staff to save a good view table for us. Staff said no problem and when we got there, waitress lead us to the inner dining room where barely seated with guests. The service team cannot say credibility. Food is fine and just fine. Easy to get full and... More

Great restaurant but go very, very hungry. We have tried this style of restaurant before so made a wise choice to eat at lunch time, a slightly smaller menu but you would hardly notice. A great salad and hot buffet then as much BBQ meat as you can manage. When you've had enough, or just need a rest, turn your... More

A real meat festive at Gaucho's. The Brazilian BBQ is a meat lovers treat. There were at least 5 beef cuts plus pork, lamb, chicken hearts, chicken wraps and sausages. The service was very friendly and attentive. Super place for a meat laden supper.

We went here on a recommendation and we weren't disappointed. You can eat as many meats as you want, the waiters will keep bringing different meats to your table until you say no thanks. We filled our plates from the buffet with delicious side dishes rice, potato, and lots of different salad. In hindsight it may have been better to... More

We stopped in for the lunch buffet which is a steal of a deal. The meat is good, not as good as some other Brazilian steakhouse's I've been to. The salad bar was good too. Would go back if I wanted to fill up.

My first time and I will be there for sure. The best price is at lunch. We can eat real churrasco with Picanha and Maionese, real bean and Farofa. All people are friendly. Confortable place And clean. we can see preparation of meat.

This was a great find. We walked into it by accident and surprise surprise. Of course my eyes were bigger than I could eat. The food here is outstanding. Well beyond any expectations. Totally an experience any person would enjoy that loves meat of all varieties. Beef, Pork, Chicken, and Lamb barbecued to perfection and lots of end cuts for... More

Saw the reviews here and suggested going there to my wife without telling her the deal. She started to balk at the $43 dollar each price tag but I insisted we eat there. We sat down and the waiter told us to help ourselves to the salad bar. The salad bar not only had salad but also had a couple... More

This restaurant was recommended by our resort and we were extremely pleased! I am not a big meat eater, but made an exception for this incredible treat! The salad bar was incredible and the servers circled the restaurant with fresh cooked meat on huge skewers. They sliced and placed on your dish and you were able to have as much... More
