The food was very good and we enjoyed the atmosphere but it would have been quite expensive without the coupon/discount we used. The sad news is that they have since closed. Sorry, but you can visit their other location in Manchester, NH.

Brazillian Steakhouse - alot of food for the money. The salad bar is nice and they have some authentic drink specials. Not my first choice for Old Port dining.

Whenever we are in Portland, it is always a great dinner. Have been here several times and have always enjoyed our meal! Have been for Birthdays and Anniversaries and always have had great service and food.

This restaurant is one of the best that I have ever tried! Gauchos offers a world-class dining experience at a very fair price. For $30, you get a selection of 12 meats and grilled salmon, plus traditional side dishes of baked beans, rice, fried plantain,...More
