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.

It was our first experience here but third in Brazilian Steakhouses and Terra Goucha was the best! Their service was very helpful and friendly. The food was delicious.. All meats were cooked very good! We loved the grilled pineapple so much. And also their buffet was rich and fresh. I highly recommend this place to everyone.

I gave 3 stars to the food because I was looking forward to the Beef Ribs the most which are usually more tender (melts in your mouth) like other Brazilian steakhouses I've been too, unfortunately it wasn't, but maybe it was an off night. Salmon could use some work too as it was overcooked and dry. Overall most of the food was cooked to perfection and service was excellent.

it was my Birthday and I picked this restaurant. My wife chose lunch rather than dinner as it is a 46 minute drive from were we are staying. It is a very attractive building. When we walked in there was a huge appetizer table that was set beautifully and was kept that way the entire time we were there. It had everything anything would want from appetizer to soup and salad. In fact my wife decided to only have that. After eating my appetizer I went for the meat. Waiters walk around with skewers from filet mignon, sirloin, flank, lamb and pork. It is all you can eat and everything was excellent. The service was excellent and very attentive. Highly recommended for a special occasion. We are planing on coming again

Meats were fabulous! I have never seen as many different meats (8 varieties of beef alone) or salmon at a Brazilian steakhouse. However, their bar for sides and salads was much smaller than other restaurants of this Genre. What was there was tasty and prepared well (loved the Lobster bisque) but just not as many options as I'm used to, such as a full salad bar and more side dish options.

We have been to Terra Gaucha in Jacksonville so we tried the Tampa Location. Both are great, but Tampa's staff is outstanding! The atmosphere for a birthday celebration was great along with the food. We highly recommend this location for Terra Gaucha!

Great visit from beginning to end. Friendly greeting and were seated immediately. The "meat team" took note of type, doneneds and cut preferences. Drinks never got half empty. The restaurant was clean and kept, and significantly more well lit than most similar restaurants. Would highly recommend.

Excellent Brazilian steakhouse experience. The "salad bar" had an exceptional variety of salads, meats (prosciutto, incredible bacon, smoked salmon, shrimp salad and much more) and the "main course" meats were superb. Very good dessert choices, too, if you have room. Try the creme papaya! The wait staff all were welcoming and helpful.

The food was absolutely delicious! The staff was fast and very attentive. A Brazilian friend of mine told me I HAD to have the chicken hearts. When I noticed they were not on the menu I asked one of the waiters and he said they would special make them for me- and they were delicious! Would absolutely go back.

Everyone from the hostess, to the waiters, to the servers were extremely friendly, and willing to explain the concept/experience. The occasion was for our 31st anniversary and to say I was surprised, we were told on four times separately "happy anniversary," the nicest surprise was the manager bring us a desert on the house. Can't wait to go back, its a "must" try experience, but bring an appetite its all soooo good!

We were a group of 8 visiting Clearwater Beach during the holidays and on our way to show in downtown Tampa on Saturday night! Great fun for a group, excellent food and very accomodating. Most noteworthy, the excellent service! The staff was always there to server and very attentive and always smiling. 2 out of the 8 had never been to a Brazilian Steakhouse and all loved it. Something for everyone. Definitely go!

We enjoyed my husband and mother in laws’s birthday that they share in the same day. The food was fantastic. The service was great. We were placed next to a very loud table, but it wasn’t a problem. The only issue I had was that I put on the reservation that there were 2 Birthdays and who they were...other restaurants personalize that. I also was shocked that I was charged for one of the “complimentary Birthday desserts.” I was also a little disappointed that the server handed me the bill then took it back saying that they “automatically” charge 18% gratuity for parties larger than 6 1. If it were automatic then it would have been automatic and he wouldn’t have had to add it to the bill. 2. I really loved the service and I’m a generous tipper...I would have easily tipped 22-25%. I waited tables in college so I am very aware of back end restaurant tactics and I almost feel that once the server saw that I was the one taking care of the bill that he made a “judgement” call on my financial status. Since it wasn’t really an automatic 18% i just left it at that since he felt that was the most he’d get out of me. I’ve been to all the Brazilian steakhouses no Tampa and I can’t say that this was my favorite, but aside from the birthday and tip it was enjoyable and I’d recommend it.
