Staying at the Pacific hotel ( which was excellent but the brekky deal was a little poor . Bain Marie's all needed topping up ( 7.45am). Asked chef for poached eggs and was informed I needed to go to the desk and pay a "small " surcharge . Come on !!!!! Normal full brekky is $34, even with half price... More

We ate at Flame Pop Up Bar street food last weekend and our Steak sandwich was delicious. The meat was very tender. Serves are not the biggest. There are tables of 4 The chairs are really uncomfortable after a while The atmosphere is great. We like that place.

Not as enjoyable as it used to be. The food quality has certainly deteriorated over the years. You were able to have a selection of rare, medium or well done meats previously but this time not so. Most of the meats are cooked to well done and slightly tasteless and dry. The selection of seafood was overcooked and in my... More

We had a bite to eat at the pop up street food bar. The food was really nice but we were put off by the waiter, who addressed us with "buddy". Very inappropriate, unprofessional and comes across derogatory. We will not be back.

Prime Australian beef cooked on a hot volcano rock. The raw beef is served on a hot volcano rock that you can cook it to suit your own preference. I cut and cooked the beef bit by bit so that every piece of beef is juicy and tasty. It will be perfect if the set menu can include a glass... More

The food here is enjoyable and the price reasonable for what you get (seems a little expensive at first blush). I would guess that the business relies on at least three sittings per evening. There is an early bird special to get in and out before 7pm. We arrived at 7.30pm and were out a little over an hour later.... More

Ate at the restaurant outside on the foot path of the Bushfire and thoroughly enjoyed the food and setting. It is an alacarte casual style, with excellent food and the prices were good.

We had breakfast here twice all you can eat buffet, great variety of breakfast foods, the staff were full of smiles and energetic with clearing the tables and making sure there was always plenty of food in the serving area. Fantastic and really cheap

At Bushfire Flame Grill guests enjoy a Brazilian-inspired, Australian-style barbecue. Metre long skewers of succulent Australian beef, pork, lamb and chicken are seasoned, marinated and gently roasted on the churrasco grill. Waiters slice sizzling hot roasted meats from the skewers directly to your plate. The restaurant also offers an a la carte menu. Restaurant closes on most Australian public holidays.
