The Art of Churrasco

Home 1



Gaúcho chefs slowly grill choice cuts of skewered rotisserie meats over an open flame to capture the authentic flavor and texture of each distinctive cut. A parade of meats is continuously offered and carved tableside by Gaúcho Chefs, evoking the fireside meals of the open plains. The Rodízio, which means continuous tableside service, continues until each guest is fully content. Say “Yes” countless times!

About the experience




Our Menu

The authentic churrascaria cuisine is served Rodízio style, by Gaúcho Chefs continuously cruising through the restaurant wielding skewers laden with straight-from-the-fire pork, steak, chicken, shrimp, and lamb, which are available immediately upon arrival. In addition to a selection of 14 signature cuts of meat carved tableside, a bounteous buffet stacked with fresh veggies, crisp seasonal salads, and savory Brazilian side dishes round out the meat-lovers menu, appealing to diners of every disposition.
