Breakfast of champions!

We stayed at Pacific Hotel Cairns and enjoyed breakfast both days. There was no need to eat lunch until late afternoon after this feast. The choices were good and it's all self serve.

We visited here, based on our personal love of Brazilian style restaurants. This, the worst we have had. Service was not just slow, but surly and inattentive. Requests were ignored, food was slow, and just not a good experience. Only 5 meats, and a very small platter of side dishes. Way overpriced. Do not waste a meal here.

We were here for a 40th birthday party, Donnie our waiter was excellent and needs a special recommendation. The food was nice we had the churassco and everyone enjoyed it.. If you like a meat feast then this is for you. The staff all signing happy birthday when they brought the cake out was a nice touch.

My husband and I came to this resturant and tried the early bird all you can eat special. Wow you haven't tasted meat or sides like this.

My boyfriend brought me to Bushfire on my recommendation, we booked a table and despite calling in late the service still came with a welcoming smile, the drinks arrived minutes after ordering. We both went with the Churrasco (if you seat before 6 and pay before 7 it's $10 off per head) food was perfect in every aspect and plentiful!... More

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... 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.
