The array of food was great! Little bit of everything to cover your brunch needs. We lucked out as the mansion was not holding an event and the entire place was available to walk through.

About the restaurant
Come in and enjoy our authentic fine dining Churrascaria Brazilian Steakhouse. We offer a unique experience where Gaucho Chefs circle the tables with 15 different types of rotisserie cooked meats on skewers from picanha, filet mignon, bottom sirloin to chicken & lamb. The patrons partake in tasting as many of the meats as they wish, and as many times as they wish. The delicious uniquely cooked and served meats are not the only intriguing part of the experience. A gourmet salad bar features over 30 salad dishes made with local fresh produce. The salads are accompanied by several types of traditional Brazilian dishes such as Feijoada, Beans, farofa and Brazilian rice. Each table is also served fried banana, pao de queijo (cheese bread) and cinnamon roasted pineapple. Our restaurant also features Brazilian deserts such as mousse de Maracuja (passion fruit mousse) and many more. We offer a full bar, including specialty Brazilian exotic drinks, such as the Caipirinha!
