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 and pork.

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.

The entire staff is friendly, welcoming, and extremely helpful. They always make us feel like royalty as they go above and beyond to be attentive to everything that is happening at our table. I could make a great meal of their salad bar, soup, and feijoada. However, I usually try to exercise a little restraint so I have plenty of room for all the super-tasty meats. As with most churrascarias, the picanha is my favorite. This is a cut you are not likely to get at any America steakhouse. The cut and the way they prepare it definitely makes it my favorite. Another delicious treat is the pao de quiejo.(little puffy balls of cheese bread) They come to the table hot and delicious and, again, you could fill up on these. Resist that impulse...the best treat is the meat. Meat, meat, and more meat...to your heart's desire. I also noticed that they now have shrimp. The gauchos passed through our area several times with skewers of delicious looking shrimp. I am an absolute shrimp lover but I came for all the beef. It's the absolute best. Of course, they have chicken, pork, and lamb...but, guess what, I came for the beef. My wife and I totally loved it as we celebrated her birthday. If you like an alcoholic drink, definitely try the caipirinhas. This is a fabulous drink and they make the best I've had and I lived in Brasil for a couple of years. I highly recommend Terra Gaucha for a superb dining experience. I think anybody would appreciate this treat for their birthday, anniversary, or any special occasion.

Caught up with some friends and chose to dine at our favorite restaurants. Service was impeccable and the food was delicious as always. This restaurant is participating in the Restaurant Month promotion which was beneficial. It is always a pleasure to dine here - it is a wonderful experience! Will definitely be back!

It’s was nice and everyone was friendly but they kept asking about the bill on who was going to pay or how it was gonna get paid. From the beginning to the middle of is eating our food that was very rude. Made me feel as if we was gonna run away without paying. It was alil to disturbing and rude. But overall the food was great.

Amazing food and incredible service. I had my wife’s birthday party here and couldn’t have been any better. The staff was very attentive and took care of our every need. We brought two cakes and they even cut and served it for us! If you want an amazing dining experience, I highly recommend Terra Gaucha.

This was the first time we had been to Terra Gaucha Brazilian Steakhouse. Everyone working there was very friendly and helpful. All the food was delicious! Service was perfect! So much good food! I suggest at least a 24 hour fast before your visit!😊

Terra Gaucha is one of my favorite restaurants. The food, service, and experience is always five stars. They go out of their way to wait on you hand and foot and meet all your needs. Best Brazilian restaurant in town!

as usual, our dining experience was wonderful at Terra gaucha! The food and service worse absolutely great, we keep telling ourselves that we will just get the soup in the salad bar, which would be more than enough selection and wonderful food, but we just can't say no to the perfectly cooked meet! We wish we could take your restaurant back to Gainesville with us!

Everyone was very helpful and accommodating. The food was amazing however for $50 a plate I don’t know that I’d do the full experience again. I will definitely be back but may go for lunch or the special. Really great place!

The main problem was the noise factor and very expensive not including dessert. Higher than Rodizio in Sarasota.

The environment is casual - people with children; lots of action with servers moving among patrons with skewers of meat. The food was great, especially the roasted pineapple. We were offered beef ribs, flank steak, beef tenderloin, rib eye steak, roasted lamb, and bacon wrapped chicken breast. The buffet service was filled with wonderful cheeses, vegetables, lobster bisque, marinated mushrooms, rice pilaf, and red skinned mashed potatoes. The Apple Martini's are super (on the sweet side). The price is most reasonable. On the down side, it took a long time, once seated, to see a server. It took too long to receive the martini's, and there are kids and kid noise. It was a Sunday Brunch, so totally understandable - but I wonder if it's not calmer in the later evening, when people are dining as couple without children. I would go again to a late dinner service.

Great food at a very nice price! The service was wonderful as well, however, it was a little Annoying that when the waiter with the meat came by, cut us off some meat, and without asking would take our red and green circle away without asking us! We had to go get new circles from tables where people we're not sitting yet, very unprofessional! At first we didn't even notice they were doing it, then we didn't know why they were doing it, just seems ridiculous! If I didn't want any more meat I would just turn it over and leave it red which I had it's showing red 90% of the time anyway, there was no need for that waiter to swipe it!

Extremely attentive service and great food. Even with a wedding reception taking place in the side room while we were there, our drinks were always topped off and the bread refilled almost before we ate the last piece. Meats were many and well prepared. The lamb and picahna were my favorites.

The manager was hands on, perfect with making our party feel at home and welcome. I can't say enough about the taste of the food, the quality of the food, the variety... I've already recommended this restaurant to as many people that will listen. We will definitely be back! 5 star experience!
