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.

Incredible food and service! I came for my boyfriends birthday and not only was the food delicious and fresh but the service was outstanding. After our food we barely had room for dessert but they brought out a complementary creme brûlée that was SO good.

If you're looking for a Brazilian steakhouse to visit . . . this is the one you should go to.
We have a few options in Tampa but this one has everything you might be expecting. Our biggest reason for visiting and re-visiting this place is that the food is not as salty as most other Brazilian steakhouses and they offer a great selection to choose from. The staff is very friendly, professional and attentive. Our last visit was for our anniversary and they did not disappoint and they gave us a free desert.

Horrible service and food. People wearing flip flops and tanks...not worth the money at all. Padded my bill with a 14$ glass of wine. I bought wine at the bar and brought it to the table. Very noisy kids everywhere.

This was really amazing. Loved the selection of beef and loved the side dishes that were delivered table side. Felt the cold/side dishes at the bar could have had more variety. More seasonal vegetables, more options for soup. Also would have loved a wider array of seafood options other than salmon and shrimp. LOVED the service here. By far the best service I have ever had anywhere.

Best lunch price out of all the Brazilian steak houses in Tampa. The lunch price includes the full dinner menu. Everyone from the waiters, servers and manager were great! and didn't hesitate to asks us what kind of meats we wanted and how we wanted them cooked. The decor is beautiful and the place is spacious. The meats were delicious, and the salad bar was amazing. No question I will come back again this time for dinner.

My overall experience was really great. The food was better than amazing especially being able to try different cuts of food as much as you want and what you want. My only reserve is that this was a very special night for me and I thought since they asked me if there was any special requests for my dinning experience like birthday or something and I put romantic cause it Valentines day. I would paid anything I needed too to make this happen like a great table or candle or something. But the table was in the corner with people who did not have reservations watching us eat and our table was no different than anyone elses. But overall perfect.

Had a reservation and still had to wait about 20 minutes. Meats were good but the cold salad bar was mediocre. Very noisey and very poor environment. Very plain restaurant. Texas de Brazil beats this place any day.

We had a great time at Terra Gaucha. Good experience and a nice outing. Service was wonderful. The salad bar was excellent. The meat was good but a few cuts seemed to be slightly overlooked. Of course you can request the meat cooked however you want it which is fantastic. I think because we went at 5:30 there were more kids there than we thought. A 7:00 or 7:30 reservation probably would of been better for a date. Maybe less kids at that time. We will certainly bring our kids next time if we go early. They will love it too.

Our 1st visit to Terra Gaucha was Friday night, to celebrate my sister's birthday. First off, the salad bar was fabulous--lots of items to please every palate. My sis wanted a wedge, but doesn't eat blue cheese, so they brought not one, but two undressed wedges to her at our table. Very accommodating! Service was impeccable; it was like they read your mind for what you needed before you asked. The meats, salmon, and shrimp were delicious--tender and seasoned just right. No need for salt or pepper. And the desserts---oh, my!! I had a crème brulee which was the perfect ending to a perfect meal. Although this was our first visit to Terra Gaucha, it certainly won't be our last. I highly recommend it!

Dined with my wife for our first and probably will be the only experience at Terra Gaucha on Valentine's Day. This is not our first Brazilian Steakhouse we visited. The restaurant was not busy and it was around 4pm. We waited approximately 15mins before we received any cuts of meat in our plate. Mined you I told the waiter upon seating us that I was ready for all cuts. Service did not begin to arrive at our table until the restaurant manager did the diner check round at our table to see how everything was going for us. The food is pretty good, the service at the time was poor. We decided to leave around 530pm.
