I took my husband to Gaucho for his birthday. He is the ultimate carnivore so I knew he would love it. I was sceptical, especially because it is on the expensive end of dining.

Night #1....the best meal I... More

Don't miss the stroganoff! Then comes the endless parade of grilled meats served tableside. Favorites were beef sirloin, pork tenderloin, and bacon wrapped chicken. Some other choices were a bit...

This restaurant had been on our list to try for quite some time. We were finally able to check it off of our list. They establishment was able to seat a lot of people which was great. There were many "side" choices, including salads and hot items, each being flavourful and tasty. The experience was fun, interacting with the wait... More

Excellent food and service. Got the lunch deal unlimited meat and salad option it was fabulous. My favorite was the chicken Straganoff and flank. Service was excellent and offered a lot of information on local activities and attractions. It will be a great place to pop in to after a long day skiing, looking forward to my return :)
