Hands down the best value at lunchtime. Salad bar includes with tons of sides. Beef, lamb, pork, chicken - unlimited helpings.

We were a group of six - 2 from BC, 2 from South Africa and 2 from the UK. We had dinner here in mid-July on a Friday night. Had a fantastic experience! Service was fantastic despite the restaurant being very full and with a few other large parties. Food was scrumptious - all the meats were done perfectly and... More

The place is kind of a weird feel to me. Too few tables scattered around in a too large a space. The food was generally good. Nothing outstanding, but nothing bad either. Friends tell me that you can expect fairly consistent results here. But to get me to keep coming back to a restaurant, something has to be really great.... More

The food was good (not great) and the cuts of meat were very tender, also the waiters were friendly. Unfortunately if you are not a huge MEAT eater, then you are restricted to a very few salad options from the side bar but at the same expensive price as those who eat meat. So, unless everyone in your party likes... More

Reserved a table in advance of 1 and half hour. Told the staff to save a good view table for us. Staff said no problem and when we got there, waitress lead us to the inner dining room where barely seated with guests. The service team cannot say credibility. Food is fine and just fine. Easy to get full and... More

Great restaurant but go very, very hungry. We have tried this style of restaurant before so made a wise choice to eat at lunch time, a slightly smaller menu but you would hardly notice. A great salad and hot buffet then as much BBQ meat as you can manage. When you've had enough, or just need a rest, turn your... More

A real meat festive at Gaucho's. The Brazilian BBQ is a meat lovers treat. There were at least 5 beef cuts plus pork, lamb, chicken hearts, chicken wraps and sausages. The service was very friendly and attentive. Super place for a meat laden supper.

We went here on a recommendation and we weren't disappointed. You can eat as many meats as you want, the waiters will keep bringing different meats to your table until you say no thanks. We filled our plates from the buffet with delicious side dishes rice, potato, and lots of different salad. In hindsight it may have been better to... More
