We were fortunate to fit in lunch with visiting family at Gauchos and they did not disappoint. The food was fresh and delicious and was served nonstop. The salad bar was very good also. Service was exceptional and the price for lunch was very reasonable, especially considering the quality and quantity of the food. I usually expect to pay more... More

We dined here at Gaucho's just last night at 6pm for Mother's Day Dinner. There were 4 of us. Seeing that Gaucho's had a decent rating on TripAdvisor we decided to book here. Dinner started with the buffet (part of the $46 all you can eat) and everything was tasteless and bland. Even the cheddar mash potatoes weren't good. The... More

A group of colleagues and I went to Gaucho to celebrate and had an amazing time. The food was incredible, and I must say, the service is AMAZING. The folks walking around with the varieties of meat were quick and friendly, and our server, Geiza (I think that's the right spelling) was friendly, patient, and overall just wonderful :) It...

Everything from the salads and hot table to all the bar -b - que meats was outstanding and unique. Service was exceptional. Relaxing friendly atmosphere with genuine Brazilian hospitality.

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!
