Gaucho Brazilian Barbecue is located in Downtown Canmore and they serve up an all you can eat Rodizio dinner for $42 per person. You get access to their sides and salad bar. The servers will come to your table with racks of meat and serve you at your table.

Rodizio & Plates service included the following types of meat:

  • Top Sirloin – Alcatra
  • Rump Steak – Picanha
  • Pork Loin – Lombinho
  • Sausage – Linguiça
  • Chicken Wings – Asa de Frango
  • Parmesan Beef – Beef Parmegiano
  • Beef Ribs – Costela de Boi
  • Chicken Wrapped with Bacon – Frango com Bacon
  • Chicken Hearts – Coração de Frango
  • Lamb – Carneiro

Since I’ve never experience a Brazilian meal before, I thought it would be good to try it especially in Alberta since they have amazing quality of beef.


The interior is warm and modern. You can sit inside the dining room or in their enclosed patio.


The patio is much brighter and it is heated, so you won’t get cold.


Tropical Mango Juice ($4) is what M started off with.


We went straight to their salad and side bar where they had a good amount of items to choose from. I tried a bit of everything and nothing disappointed.


All the ingredients tasted fresh and I enjoyed it all. A good start before all the meat started arriving at the table.



Beef Ribs were my favourite meat item of the night. Since they cut it right at your table. It stays hot, tender and juicy.


It looks so good too.


They also give you some hot sauce and a vinaigrette to put on the meats. I went without the sauces since I enjoyed the meat on its own.


Since the servers do come often with meat, you are given a card to show if you want more meat or not. Most of the time ours was ‘Sim Por Favor, since we wanted to try all their meats they had to offer.


It’s best to flip it to ‘Nao, Obrigado’, even if you want to take a break for all the meat. If you want a particular meat item, you can just ask them for it.


At first it was pretty awkward having someone serve you at the table


They keep all their meat warm in their contraption.


They place the meat on your side plate

For our first Brazilian restaurant experience, it was great. Trying all the different varieties was fun and perfect for our honeymoon vacation. The food is pricey, but for an experience its worth it. If I had to go again, I probably wouldn’t return since I already know the cuts of meat I really enjoyed. I would rather want a meal with just beef ribs, pork loin and rump steak.
