Very disappointed for my birthday dinner. The meat and buffet food was cold. The meat looked and tasted raw. The server was rude when he told me to use the tongs. Well guess what buddy, its my first time I have ever used tongs in a restaurant to grab my food so I can eat. After that we decided to... More

Went here for Sunday brunch with a group of friends, we were all blown away, it was SO good! There was an awesome variety of food in the buffet and to top all of that, you also get to enjoy as much Brazilian meat as you can eat!

I love this place for brunch. the usual eggs bennie sausage bacon, eggs but the gaucho experience is really cool. besides the usual buffet, the servers come to your table offering different meats that have been slow cooking. you have a red and green item at your table. as long as the green side is up, they will bring you...

I had wanted to try this place since first landing in Calgary almost a decade ago, and tonight my wife decided to take me for my birthday. BRING YOUR APPETITE. We opted for the full Rodizio(they'll explain the different dining options) This place was a carnivore's paradise, and I am not exaggerating when I say that everything brought to the... More

For special occasions, this is a favorite go-to. All-you-can-eat brazilian kebabs brought to your table, with meat, meat, and more meat. (Although the pineapple skewers are amazingly good too). Service has always been excellent, and the food quality is invariably good. Some dishes may be more to your taste than others. price is a bit high for a regular experience.

If you are a carnivore, then this is the very best restaurant for you. Beef, chicken, pork, lamb, ribs are all slow roasted on kebabs on an open flame grill. The gaucho/waiters come around to your table with the kebabs and slice off a portion as long as your table indicator is turned green side up. You can go all... More

Came here for a birthday dinner and the food was fanaminal! Great variety of meat to try! Don't fill too much on the appetizers as you will want to save room for the main course! There are about 12 different kinds of meat to try plus grilled pineapple! Its doable so you can eat all 12 and have seconds if... More

A perfect setting for any festive occasion as we offer a wide range of different, cocktails, wine, and beer. Dining with friends and family was meant to be fun, the Brazilian way!
