Tonight we held my daughters 21st party in their private dining room. The wait staff were fantastic, the kitchen on the other hand really did not perform and at $69 per person for the Brazilian BBQ I would have expected something special. The entrees were absolutely fantastic which should have set the tone for the night. First offering bought to... More

For some reason I got it in my head that this was in King Str rather than on top of Wests Mayfield. Never mind its Newcastle so still not far. We had the banquet which was good. A bit stop/start in its delivery but the meat was tasty. Portions on the small side for Newcastle which could get it into... More

This was the third time I've eaten here & it didn't disappoint. The flat bread was delicious, sides were plentiful, meats were carved at the table in Brazilian style. All meats were tender & delicious. I was full after the meal, but couldn't say no to the scrumptious churros with chocolate fudge sauce, or the butterscotch sauce. All in all... More

Breakfast is a little bit of luxury & is really reasonable. The service is impeccable & there is a lot of choice too. Nice friendly staff & they have a great bar too.

Beautiful surroundings. Fine dining service. Meat was amazing. Succulent medium rare beef, pork neck and chicken. Haloumi beautiful. Twice cooked potatoes were amazing with spicy salt. Coleslaw give or take. Only criticism was when they asked if we wanted more than one slice I said no as I expected them to keep coming back. Did ask once if we wanted... More

This is a real feast and a half ! Do NOT eat for many hours before having the Brazilian Churasco. It's a non-stop procession of tasty food served by attentive staff.

Situated on the top floor of the Gateway Inn with views over Newcastle and the coast this is a great restaurant. The food (meal mostly :-) ) is very good and matched by excellent service and wine choices.

Description
Brazillian barbecue at its best is what you can expect at Figtree Churrasco. When people talk about Newcastle restaurants, this one certainly gets a mention! Nine churrasco courses of tapas and breads, meats and seafood are served, all separated by a serving of fresh pineapple sliced and served by a knife-weilding churrascarian! This is one of THE places to eat in Newcastle, where food is cooked on a grill and served from a sword-sized skewer! An a-la-carte menu is available and there are options for vegetarian and gluten free meals.
