The appetizers were various, good and abundant. Unfortunately the meat was not so good, some parts were overcooked. The final boiled pineapple was tasty but hard to chew. The place is sufficiently quiet, they also project images and videos of South America.

I've been waiting for more than 1 hour after ordering but nobody cared about us. We decided to go somewhere else but had to pay the bottle of wine. No rodizio at noon

I walked in with some friends and straight away started speaking Portuguese and the staff could neither speak it nor be friendly with us. The buffet as extremely weak with some salads that I had never seen before and no warm buffet. We were served with the meat black beans, farofa (very little quantity), vinaigrette (as well very little), french... More

No restaurant outside Brazil will ever get close to replicate what a Brazilian churrascaria is like however you will find from time to time a good place that serves good meat and descent salad bar. Gaucho offers an ok salad bar but they should replenish it more often, we couldn't get the same food item twice as they didn't replenish... More

Walked by here a few times during the summer and they seemed to do a brisk business, so decided to take some friends here. Nice indoor dinning area, elegant place settings, so I couldn't understand why they had a huge screen playing loop footage of Brazilian ladies in skimpy bathing suites, massive spiders and buff men from Bahia. Seemed really... More

Nice modern decor. Cozy atmosphere but lighting should not be dimmed so much. Fortunately, they no longer show concert videos on the TV screens (which are unnecessary anyway). Food keeps improving, meat is perfectly cooked (no longer as salty as before) and the selection is now of excellent quality and good value. Pineapple at the end is very welcome. First... More

Simply delicious... To those who love meat, be it beef or chicken (and also pork although I don't eat them), then you will enjoy this place. Love the roasted beef and chicken they served here...fresh and delicious with typical Brazilian spices and side dishes as well. The BBQ and the buffet is a complete package and you won't regret :)
