Selection and preparation of the meats was very good. Salad bar could be a bit more extensive.

Was delicious! Be sure to at least try each type of bbq meat. Take it easy on the salad and sides bar, although it too is very yummy abd fresh. Thats just filler, the meat is what you are there for.

Wonderful food, great staff, extremely accommodating and helpful
Unfortunately view out though so don't get a window seat unless you like looking at vacant lots and rail cars rolling by

Worst Brazilian bbq ever. Hostess complained when we asked to be seated at another table and said what an inconvenience it was for her to change it. Salad bar had a very poor selection. Only ham and pineapple, no other meats. Bbq meats were extremely overcooked, dry and crumbly. Saw our waiter only three times including delivery of the bill. Had to reset the terminal as it defaulted to 25% tip. At $2.25 for a small glass of soda water and $50 per person for the meal, it certainly is not worth it. Save your money. For the price, there are much better places in town to eat that have great food, great service and value for the dollar. As a Brazilian Bbq connoisseur, I find this place to be a total disgrace when compared to the competition.

An all you can eat brunch close to downtown Calgary. Good food and attentive service. The picanha (top sirloin cap) and pao de quejo (Brazilian cheese buns) alone are worth a visit.

Pampa has become our go to restaurant to celebrate special occasions or entertain out of town visitors. The salad bar is always fresh, the gauchos are friendly, the food is terrific with a respectable wine list. This should be a go to place, it will quickly become a fovorite

Was at the restaurant for New Years Eve and our friends birthday. Food was delicious, extremely exceptional. Ambience was wonderful and the service was outstanding considering how busy it was.

However, I can’t give it 5 stars not full stars for value due to the fact it was ridiculously expensive. The dinner selection that night was set at a price of $80/person which unfortunately for the amount of food (serving size specifically ) was not worth the amount that was charged. i think the disappointing part of it was that there wasn’t a complementary drink included in the price of the dinner. Which for New Years, there should be one drink offered to say thank you for choosing us for your dining experience.

All in all though, this restaurant outdid itself with the flavor and selections of food. It was all cooked perfectly and the staff made the experience the most enjoyable. They were extremely helpful and polite.

I definitely recommend that you try this restaurant at least once. You will not be disappointed with regards to flavor and selection. Thanks again Pampa.

Big fan of Pampa, having eaten at 2 of their restaurants in Edmonton. This one is really good. Love the selection of grilled met and love that it's hot when the Gauchos come around. If you go away hungry, you're not doing it right.

Excellent waitress and food. Only complaint was after a while the gauchos seemed to forget to come to the table with meat and it would have been nice to have more of the meat advertised (had about 4 things that were offered multiple times instead). A little pricey

Got my meat fill for 2018 as we celebrated my wife's birthday. Meat is very tasty, great variety not smothered in salt, very soft and juicy. Service was excellent, salad bar has numerous options. Care should be taken not to over consume too much veggies leaving no room for the meats. Overall, a great place for a once in awhile special occasion and the price is definitely worth it. For a family of four spending over $ 200 and feasting till you feel you can't walk is definitely value for money.

Good selection at the salad bar but bread products seemed stale. Had to request 4 different wines off the menu before there was one they actually had. Meat was delicious and came around often. Definitely go on an empty stomach!

Unfortunately a few of the meats where overdone, pork and some beef dishes. No red meat should be served well done. The ones that did come closer to rare were good and the bacon wrapped chicken was delicious.

Food was noticeably less flavorful and much tougher (low quality) compared to the other Brazilian BBQs in Calgary. Less selection of meat for lunch than the others as well. Salad bar was adequate. Significantly better options available within the city for price and quality. Mina's at Eau Claire trumps Pampa in every way and is a short walk away.

The only part of the meal that was not satisfactory was that not all the items were part of the price. There was an up-sell to be able to access the grilled pineapple, shrimp and wild boar.

We have had better food and service in the past. This time 1/2 of the offerings were dry and over seasoned, inconsistent from skewer to skewer. And our server seemed very disinterested. It may have been an off night but we expect consistency. Salad bar was wonderful.
