An Interesting Experience and Good Food

It was an interesting restaurant. This was included as a part of our tour so I don’t know how much it cost, but it was fun! The meat is served Brazilian style coming out to the table on skewers. The waiter carves off a slice of meat and you grab onto it with your tongs. You can have as much... read more

Had a fabulous meal at this restaurant which is one of my all time favourites in Cairns. The food is always consistently tasty and plentiful. Probably had the best waiter in town as he made us feel like we were the only ones in the room.

The meat was yummy and although there was some wait at times between being brought more meat the sides kept us going. Pork was my favourite. Good value for money and attentive service.

Was there last week with a group of people for a work function. Was able to fit us in a section away from everyone so we had relative privacy. Food was amazing. Top marks for the pork, beans and corn salad. I had 2 rounds and so did a few others. Top marks for the cinnamon roasted pineapple. Never had... More

The Brazilian style grill is fun and enjoyable, and the food is tasty,ample, varied, well-cooked and delicious. The "Early Bird" deal is even better if you've gone by 7pm. It's licensed and the service is good. A couple of things to be aware of before you go though, which in my view detract from the overall experience ... the prices... More

I'm usually suspicious of restaurants and cuisine that seems forced upon a place and Brazilian meats in a sea side town like cairns seemed to be a perfect example. Happy to concede that initial impressions were wrong. My steak in chimichurri sauce was just right, and so were the tapas platters that we had ordered. The churros was a lovely... More
