Lots of good meat. Lovely people, busy atmosphere. A great experience all around and a pretty good price for what you are served!

For just $50 you can have the bushfires experience. This involves an all you can if every near you can think of! They let you try one of everything and then continue to bring out your favourites all night long. You get far more than your money is worth and never leave on an empty tummy. The meat is also...

The Bushfire specialises in Brazilian style barbecue, so if you're a vegetarian you'll likely be horrified. There is a set price for an all you can eat experience, though you can order ala carte if you prefer. Lamb, beef, pork, chorizo sausage and other favourites on very large skewers arrive at your table direct from the grill. The meat is... More

This was my third visit to Cairns and the third time I have chosen to eat at Bushfire. The flame grilled meats are carved at your table with an interesting platter of side dishes to accompany them. The meal finishes with flame grilled pineapple.

We had the Churrasco, which we had never had before. The sides were a great accompaniment and you can request more (free). The meat began to flow, but then it got a bit disorganised, we never had the some of the meats. I repeatedly asked 2x waiters for certain meats as they had not been served; however it appeared the...

Not the same this year. All you can eat? Only if you beg. Didn't see the chicken despite asking. Had to ask for the spicy sausage. Asked for the beef. Came back with 2 x 50c sized cold pieces. Seafood is okay pork is good, lamb was tough. Couldn't get more than one piece of dessert, pineapple, Teeth busting pork... More

We had the menu / deal where you keep getting more of the grilled meats. First of all it took ages for new meat to arrive, so the sides got cold and the meat itself was not too warm either. I was constantly stressed, waiting for my meal while the sides get colder and could not really enjoy the meal.... More

Very much a produce as much food as you can restaurant and although the food was ok not exactly a great meal. The staff were friendly and attentive and the menu sounded quite exciting with stones to cook your own steak but was expecting something a bit more rustic. As a place of choice to go I wouldn't bother and... More
