Brazilian Steakhouse
Born in the “Pampas”, (Southern region of Brazil) Terra Gaúchaʼs concept revolves around “Churrasco” a traditional grilling method using open flames and various cuts of meat. Today, we proudly keep the flame alive using authentic Gaúcho seasonings and natural wood charcoal to roast succulent beef, lamb, poultry, pork and seafood.

In addition to our grilled meats, guests enjoy a gourmet salad and sides bar featuring the freshest vegetables, a variety of cheeses and cold cuts. During the dining experience each guest is transported (no passport required) to “Southern Brazil” where they are pampered from start to finish. The “Terra Gaúcha familia” would like to invite you for a unique experience that will make a lasting impression.

Went for my son’s birthday. Inside the restaurant, it was a little warm. It was a hot day outside and maybe the ac unit is not correctly sized. The table next to us was celebrating a birthday as well and the mariachi band played about 5 songs for them WITH a horn/trumpet. IT WAS WAY TOO LOUD AND WE COULD NOT EVEN HEAR EACH OTHER TALK. Others around us did not find that enjoyable either. Food was very good and service was excellent!!

The food was excellent. Phenomenal salad bar and the meats were great. Service was top notch. It’s a bit expensive, but worth every penny. The only negative in my opinion was the band, but I’m sure some people enjoy that.

Excellent food, service and variety. Found the sirloin and filet to be my favorites. The salad bar selections alone would be more than enough for a full meal. Just make sure you leave room for the meat selections.

We were there roughly 2 hours and certain things like the caramelized pineapple didn’t come out until we were already paying our bill. We asked for certain things and it was never brought. Otherwise delicious as always! Pleasant service and great atmosphere.

I am generally pretty loyal to Bern‘s Steak House when I visit Tampa, but I decided to give this place a try. Boy am I glad I did—this place was superb! A great variety of meats, very friendly servers, and fantastic salad bar. The meat really was cooked and seasoned to perfection. Weirdly enough, one of my favorite things was the grilled pineapple they brought around on skewers—it was to die for! All in all in excellent place and a must visit restaurant!

Took my 15 year old grandson to Celebrate his last day with us before he goes home. The service is impeccable from the Greeters to Bar to the waitstaff and Gauchos. The lamb was exceptional and I love the Beef Short ribs ,meat is so delicious melts in your mouth. You never feel rushed as we took our time sampling most of what they have to offer.

This was our 1st time here and the overall experience was Great. The waiter, staff and even the managers were very attentive. There was a issue with the bottle of wine we picked the manager upgraded our choice and charged us the lower price. Then he came over to ask if we were satisfied with his wine choice. I will definitely go back.

Love coming here for date night! The food and service is always spot on! They were very busy this last time we went which led to the noise level being higher and many servers on the floor trying to take care of everyone. That’s the only thing that took away from experience a little bit.

We’ve been to this restaurant many times. It was NOT good this time. The salad bar was fine. But the meats were dry, overcooked, fatty or undercooked. We had to wait approximately 10 minutes just to get our bill and then another 10 for someone to take it. I have NEVER experienced this type of service and food quality at this restaurant in the past. I will definitely be rethinking before I return.

Upon entering (because I made reservations) I was seated immediately. Our waiter explained how the restaurant worked, and asked us what experience we would like to have. Due to dietary restrictions I chose the seafood and chicken option. We got the cheese bread, but we had to wait a very long time for the polenta fries and bananas, we never got the mashed potatoes that were promised. Only options for chicken and seafood were shrimp, salmon, chicken and chicken wrapped in bacon (which I couldn’t have). The drinks were delicious, the sides were phenomenal, and dessert (tres leches) was so big we shared it. It was overall an amazing experience and even with a few obstacles, I cannot wait to come back.
