My wife wanted to come here for her birthday dinner (adults only!). The many different meats are cooked to perfection. There are some excellent salads and vegetable dishes also to help layer all the meat you'll gorge on! Not cheap but worth it as a...More

Based on their lunch, I give this 4 stars instead of 3.5. The flavour of the meat was good, but not great. I think their spice rubs keep the taste in the ballpark, but otherwise are uninspired. Possibly because there were few customers for Monday...More

Dear Valued Customer, Thank-you so much for your visit and review of our restaurant. We're glad you liked our t-shirts. Our customers are always talking about the "meat sweats" and we think it is definitely a thing! Hope to see you again soon! Obrigada!

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!
