Love the idea and were keen to try. Could have overdosed just on the buffet salads etc. but the meat was all fantastic. You need to like your beef/lamb rare otherwise you will struggle but that was fine for us - the rarer the better. Really enjoyed the Coconut Ice Cream and barbequed pineapple dessert. Enough for two though.

Living in Canmore, I have the chance to enjoy the food at Gaucho once in a while. The quality of food and service is steady. I am a meat lover so a place like Gaucho suit me very well. The salad bar is pretty diversified but could improve a little bit. Other than that, I recommand this restaurant.

I guess it makes sense - it is cattle country. We did the take out and the feijoada, beef and... More

This is probably a great restaurant if you're really hungry! There's no real menu, just a quite basic salad and sides buffet and continuous skewers of different sorts of meat which keep coming as long as you want. The waiters bring them out in turn but the meat is being continually basted and kept warm. This means that although the... More

Great selection of items and they definitely keep the food coming as long as you want. Highlights were the chicken hearts and the chicken thighs but all the meats were really good. Lots of selection on sides as well, service was fantastic. Was disappointed they didn't have Sangria on the menu but they did make it for us...wasn't the best... More

We ordered take-out for a family of 13 and prepared our own side dishes at our condo. There was a lot of meat, it was tasty and enjoyed by all.
