This is a fancy meat-fest. Don't come here in thongs and singlet - you'll be out of place. However if you do, the staff will cater to you the same as anyone else. Staff were all lovely, and didn't leave us waiting for anything. The servings of meat kept being offered, somehow at the exact moment we were all ready... More

Tired of the same old dining experience, then I really can recommend Bushfires Brazilian restaurant. If you love meat then you must go there. Right across the road from the Cairns waterfront Lagoon, and wonderful Esplanade, go for a swim or stroll along the waterfront after dinner. Amazing service & food. You can eat and eat till you are ready... More
