Excellent service, delicious food and beverages

My friend and I went in for a couple of cocktails and decided to stay because the meat smelled so delicious. We started off the night with a couple of Caipirinha's, made with real Cachaca, and then proceeded on to the feast.

This was a lot of fun, as everyone got to sample all of the different meats and sides, and then could have as many repeat servings as you liked until you were full. There was even an option to take a break. The early bird savings of $8/person made this a great value. We particularly liked the pork in a... More

As a person dining alone I was awarded excellent service particularly from a female waiter and although I ordered the steak instead of the Brazilian experience it was absolutely superb. I enjoyed it so much I went back the next night and was given the same table and equally fine service. It proved to me that the meal and service... More

Excellent sides, potato gratin, salads etc arrive at the start, then comes the meat, barbecued steak, pork, lamb, and spicy sausages sliced off great skewers, then tender chicken and seafood stew. Take what you want, it only comes around once, but you can top up on the sides if you need to. To finish, there is cinnamon coated pineapple, sweet... More

The food here was better than i expected actually, maybe i read too many conflicting reviews. Everything we tried was great. As for portions, well they kept asking if i want more....so i dont get those complaints. Basically for all you can eat churrasco they give you a platter with coleslaw, potato gratin, saffron rice, black beans and bbq sauce... More

Girls were lovely, boys serving were mean with extras once we'd had a taste of everything and not very attentive. Asked twice for more beef, nearly gave up waiting. Food was nice but wouldn't bother going back, $50 is very ambitious.

The bushfire restaurant is great value for money with a buffet option giving you the chance to try all sorts of dishes and meats which you get to pick pieces from the roasting fork brought to you. The sides were unlimited, presented well and yummy. Ending the meal with cinnamon sugar coated pineapple makes this whole place worth it! Get... More

We eat at the Bushfire Flame Grill last night and enjoyed the churrasco BBQ. While not a cheap meal at $50 per person without drinks, the selection of meats that keeps coming until you say "no more" is very good. The rare beef and pork in particular were fantastic. Even though there were two large groups there the service was... More

Have eaten at a few Brazilian Barbecue with the all you can't eat style and this is pretty good. Service is good and the meat was well cooked. I normally don't eat pork but pork here was good. Also the added seafood option was nice but would prefer if it was on another plate due to it being very saucy.... More
