We stopped in on a whim, neither of us having had Brazillian food before. We were very graciously treated by the GM when seated near a noisy family and asked to move. The full buffet was good: my favourite was the out-of-this world tasty Beef Stew, the Black Bean stew was the second choice hands down. The orange herb butter... More

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. I have to say, my scepticism was replaced with complete satisfaction. Initially I was intimidated by the concept but we had an amazing server who explained... More

Typical Brazilian steakhouse. We were uncomfortably full when we finished eating. They have funny shirts that advertise giving you the "meat sweats" There is a self serve bar featuring different cold/hot side dishes and then they continue bringing different cuts of meat on skewers to your table. I asked for a small portion of each selection so that I could... More

Was a little concerned about eating at a Brazilian Steakhouse in a small Canadian resort town! But my fears were not realized once the server started coming by with the various offerings! All the meats were very delicious and plentiful. The service was outstanding as well! As with most Brazilian steakhouses the sides and salad bar seemed more of an... More

We were in Canmore the week of August 7. We ate here twice (the first time was so good). You have to understand the menu concept. Rodizio style dining....you help yourself to side dishes from the buffet. Then, servers come around and slice you various cuts of beef, pork, lamb, chicken right at your. table. Night #1....the best meal I... More

Gaucho is a Brazilian BBQ restaurant in the heart of quaint downtown Canmore. The salad bar and hot entrees on buffet are excellent, with interesting choices to get you started. 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.

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 :)

This place was great for a group of really hungry hikers. Definately made the best of the buffet. The food is great quality and the staff are even better. Our hosts Darren and Mary were very warm and friendly
