There are two options at this restaurant. A La carte or the Churrasco experience. We chose the latter . This is not a restaurant for vegetarians. The waiters carve the meat off skewers and you can have as much as you want. The quality of the meat and sides was excellent. We booked a table for 5:30 on a Saturday,... More

This is a Brazilian style bbq restaurant on the Cairns Esplanade. Ignore the a la carte menu and head for the speciality - various bbq meat types along with various accompaniments and sauces. Tasty!

Bushfire is a great place if you love meat ( and I do love meat). The buffet is the best option - you get meat served from a spit at your table - as much as you want. Sides are tasty as well. Service is nice- love the caipi trolley.

We opted for the set price all you can eat meat feast having not been given any other option. Yes there was plenty of food but most of it was dry and overcooked. Beef was tough. Lamb was really dry. Chicken was ok. Felt really cheated as could not really eat that much as the quality was so bad. I... More

as we stayed at the Pacific Hotel this restaurant was accessible. Four of us had different meals and all were good but the mobile barbecue skewers were definitely the highlight and would fill any belly to completion

We ate here twice while in Cairns. Best to book in busy season. Took the all you can eat deal with the skewered meats. We have had meals like this in South America and it was nice to have the chance to eat this style in Cairns. You are given a small platter of rice, sauces, beans and gratin potatoes... More
