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.

First cut of flank steak needs to crispier.
Pineapple was way over powered with cinnamon.
Salmon was so fishy. Salmon at the salad bar was great.
Man in grey shirt went to get us bread, and never came back, waited 20 mins for it and had to ask the waiter.
Sirloin, garlic steak, and shirmp were the only good meats

Terra Gaucha is a gem. Quality meat which is on par with steakhouses costing significantly more, and service is top notch.

Our party arrived about 15 minutes early and we were seated immediately, greeted by our waiter and explained about everything that there was to offer. The salad bar was enormous with a variety to choose from, then the entree began and we sat and ate for a couple hours. We finished our dinner with espresso and cappuccino and some black sambucco.Our party had a fantastic experience and would definitely tell all our friends and family to patronize your restaurant. Thanks again.

We arrived shortly before lunch closing on Friday. The buffet was pristine and we were never made to rush. The service was excellent and the buffet outstanding. I am not a big meat eater so I only had the buffet which was terrific. Lobster bisque, smoked salmon, tons of salads and great bread. Desserts are also excellent. The flan was really good. Did this on way to airport for 5 pm flight. Worked out great

The last time I came the beef ribs were not tender and salmon was overcooked. This time around both were cooked perfectly! They were both moist and "melted" in your mouth when biting into. All the other meats are always on point!

We are from Alaska and first experienced Brazilian Steakhouse dining several years ago in Las Vegas at Texas de Brazil. We have since had the opportunity to dine in Rio de Janeiro at authentic Brazilian Steakhouses, and we never travel outside Alaska without having at least one meal of this type. Up to now it has always been either Fogo de Chao or Texas de Brazil, but from now on we will be looking for Terra Gaucha whenever possible! They are all amazing of course, but if I had to choose one it would be Terra Gaucha!! Great service, fantastic food and overall awesome experience! Would recommend to anyone!! This place could convert a Vegan or Vegeterian!!

The food was pretty good, the lamb tasted a bit stinky though. My only complaint is that the waiter never came by our table, another gentleman started refilling all of our drinks, taking our old plates, even ended up bringing us our check and cashed us out all while attending other tables as well, while my waiter would just kind of be talking to other employees and not even acknowledge us. The meats were generally very delicious and perfectly cooked. Some meats didn’t have much flavor but those were few and far between. I overall really enjoyed this restaurant, and I’m glad we chose to spend our anniversary here, but I think the service coming from my waiter should have been much better, especially considering this resuarant is considered upscale.

Went to ballgame and came afterward. We were let in early to wait. Sat at bar for 1/2 hour. Staff was fabulous and the mojito was delicious!
Dinner was great but never got any lamb and the air conditioner about froze us out even after repeated requests to lower it That being said all 4 of us
Look forward to coming again.

Service is amazing. They make you feel like you're part of the family. All staff are hands on, including the manager, no matter whose table it is. We've gone twice in the past month for celebrations. Each time they decorated a plate with the celebratory message. Nice touch! Food is always fresh and hot.

Definitely a place that I will recommend to family and friends. Way better than the big name places that are here in Tampa and Orlando. The meats were tender and seasoned just right- not salty at all like some other places.The salad bar was great. Everything we had was delicious and the service was excellent.

Tried this location on a recent date night. They restaurant had a nice ambiance, however not fancy. Multiple customers were in jeans and t-shirts. Waiters were always attentive and were by our table quite often. The food was delicious with a great selection of meats. Salad bar with a good variety of sides as well was great and included with price. Desserts and of course alcohol were not included. We ate for 45 per person, which may have been a little high for the experience. I would go again though.

This Place had amazing food and excellent service. We preferred it over Texas de Brazil and would definitely go back. The salad bar had a lot of selections none of which were a disappointment. My wife tried the chicken and seafood option because she doesn't eat red meat and she said the fish was cooked perfectly.

This was an impromptu date night reservation. The servers were very friendly but the drinks and food were lacking. After order the drink - Caiparina (spelling?) - I told the server it was horrible ad tasted like Limeaid and it needed more Cacache. He told me he would make the next one - which I refused to order. We waited several minutes for the other servers to come around with the meats to the point where the manager noticed and asked what we wanted. We told him filet and shrimp. The filet came and there was only one piece left...the shrimp never showed up. The meats were bland with little to no flavor and the sides arrived cold. It was a total let down and not worth the money. I've been to several Brazilian steakhouses around the country and I won't be coming back to this one for sure.
