I visited the restaurant together with 6 friends. The menu was large but a lot of listed dishes were no longer available so it took us quite some time to complete our order. There was a constant change of waiters at our table. Except one...More

Really amazing steaks of great variety, but the place is always full and the waiters have trouble serving all the customers on time. Expect long waiting (at least an hour) and mixed orders. Dishes are large and very tasty though, definitely worth the waiting.

Brazilian style Picanha is the stand out for this restaurant. Mixed reviews of other dishes within our party mean that I cant give it the 5 the Picanha deserves, but awesome food, 3 medium sized steaks cooked beautifully, served on a hanging skewer. Service was...More

Good quality meat served on the hot stone with basic rice salad and chips with large windows to watch the sun going down. Staff are efficient and the better wines reasonably priced. Still a good venue I say serving locals mainly, don't expect haute cuisine.

The location from the outside seems unappealing, the inside is not much better, tables and chairs seems more appropriate to a canteen. I tried the typical brazilian steak and the fried banana, I was not imoressed with any of that. The bill came up heavier...More

Is for this restaurant!!! The steak on the stone just never disappoints!!! Friendly service and good food, just about what you need from a restaurant isn't it? A very unassuming place from the outside but go in, you will not be disappointed!

Over the years we have enjoyed great 'meat on a hot stone' at 'Gauchao da Picanha', but our visit at the end of summer was a disaster. The meat was heavity water injected, and saline water was oozing out of the pale meat when placed...More
