In a town that has more Brazilian steakhouses than you can count... Gaucho is the standard! This is a single location restaurant and truly a wonderful "meat" experience! Great & very eclectic salad bar with everything from simple salad to very fresh, but limited sushi! Then come the beef, chicken & pork... all incredible!! After all of that, do not miss the papaya cream for desert, to die for!! Try Gaucho, you will not be disappointed!!

Went today after reading the reviews on here. The food is excellent quality, so much choice and quantity; beef, lamb, chicken, pork and the salad buffet is good too. On top of this you can still ask for chips, rice, beans, plantain etc. The service is very good and quick. The staff are friendly. I would recommend this place.

Brazilian BBQ as it should be: 100% focus on meat, all different cuts and tastes. You sit down and find already a small indicating which cut belongs to which part of the animal. This while eating delicious pieces of roasted? fried? bacon to die for. Ok, there is a salad buffet in the middle of the seating area, but you tend to stay away from it. You came for the meat and the meat comes to you. The waiters bring the skewers with the cuts straight out of the kitchen to all tables, and you say yes or no. And it is so difficult to say no watching the excellent cuts move away without even trying. Needless to say you are going to eat way too much. Staff is very polite (but most of them don't speak English), food is excellent, overall a reference point on the map, hence the solid recommendation. Vegetarians stay out.

Taxi driver took us for a ride, claiming he could not find the restaurant, and clearly wanted to take us to another steakhouse where he no doubt received a gratuity. we stuck to our guns, called the restaurant and had them instruct him with directions. It was worth the aggravation in getting there. I have experienced numerous churrascarias and this one was definitely at the top of my list. Service was terrific and when asked the waiter delivered some wonderful plantains that I am sure were not on the menu. Meat quality in all instances was top notch, cooked properly and brought to the table in a timely manner. good find for sure.

I didn't receive any bribe to write this: absolutelly the best in service, food quality and atmosphere. The meat options are great, the salad & sushi buffet have the options you'll actually eat (very different from many bbq places where you find 3654 itens served on the buffet but "eatable" just 3 or 4). Impecable service, very professional and flawless.
