There is broken décor and is poorly decorated. Cheap meat cuts and cheap salads. SO overpriced for the low quality they offer.

I can't recommend this place enough. The food was amazing and the staff were very friendly. One of the best dining experiences I've had in years. If you're in Calgary, go to Gaucho Brazilian Barbecue.

The food was out of this world but beyond that the service was excellent! Our server was very attentive to our table and the people who brought around the meat were always cheerful and quick to serve! Nothing left wanting!!!

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!
