We were looking for a place to have a dinner as we were celebrating our anniversary. We passed by this place and thought why not give it a try. They were fully booked up for over two hours but they said we could sit at the bar. So we did, the bartender was from Australia and very fun to visit with. He was tentative to our meal and helped with answering any questions we had. He kept the evening interesting and fun. Made for a great evening and a delicious dinner. The meats kept coming the whole time with no waiting for anything. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Definitely a place you will not walk out with being hungry. The salads were very delicious and the bread was over the top. Definitely worth the price for the dinner. Give Gaucho's a try you will have no regrets on this choice. And don't forget the grilled pineapple to top off your dinner.

We were looking for a light meal then we saw Gaucho's as we were ambling along. The style of meal - offering 11 or 12 different options of meats and whatnot on skewers - choice cuts I might add - in amounts you choose, is wonderful and tasty. Salad bar is beautifully stocked with all sorts of produce and garnishings. A delightful and filling - but not so light - meal. Great service, pleasant ambiance and comfortable seating.

The four of us decided to try this place as it had an interesting look to it with waiters dressed in Gaucho outfits carrying large slabs of meat around with them and cutting slices off for customers. We were seated immediately by friendly staff. We ordered the standard meal which means you go to the salad, vegetable and other items bar and serve yourself what you want there. At the table you are soon greeted by one of the waiters with some kind of meat, all smoked. If you want some, he will cut you a slice or two. They had a number of varieties, including pork, chicken, sausages, roasts. Since you don't order any meats, you can try everything they bring around by just taking a small slice. We enjoyed the meal and all filled up since they don't stop coming until you quit. The only low point was the poor service on our drinks which took a while to get the first ones and forever to get seconds.

The staff were friendly. Food was always around. The Barbeque meat was to die for. The salads were unique. A little pricey.

We went to this restaurant as part of a food tour. WE were served the yummiest rum based drink before sampling the wares. I wish I could tell you the name of the drink, but it was a Brazilian cocktail and a specialty of the house.
Now for the food. We had a delightful hearts of palm and tomato salad, and 2 types of meats. We were offered a rosemary pork loin and a steak. The fun part is the meats are brought tableside on a sword like skewer. There, the gaucho carves off a serving. Had we been there for a regular dinner, or lunch, the meats would have just kept coming until your flip your card over to the “No thanks” side. Reading the menu, you can be offered all variety of meats and sausages, and basically eat until you pop.
