My partner and I went here for the first time for his birthday, and the food and service was fantastic. For $38 each, we were kept full with a constant flow of food! 5 amazing side dishes that accompanied 11 different meats, the quality of the food was brilliant and the service was prompt right until the end. It was only through conversation with a staff member that we had mentioned it was my partners birthday, so we were delightfully surprised at the end of our dinner when they brought us out a complimentary cake and sparklers! Seriously can't think of anywhere else around noosa that iv walked out of feeling so satisfied, with not only the quality of the food but the value for money too. This place is a must try, can't speak highly enough about it, will definitely be back!!

This is one of the best grills you can find, based around huge hunks of gorgeous meat with a Brazilian (and therefore Portuguese) twist. Whatever you do, don't eat anything that day before you go, or you'll regret it!

We had a friends 50th here and went for the 11 serve banquet. It is a novel idea of slicing the meats directly at the table from the giant skewers. I think it was All you could eat for $38pp. The lamb and beef were the winners. A warning though, pace yourself. If you just have one slice of each meat you'll power on through to the pineapple finally. Some went too hard and fast early. I passed on the chicken hearts but others enjoyed them. They will keep replenishing the side dishes as required-all tasty. Service could improve. A smile would crack some of their faces but maybe it was the heat and having to work over a BBQ. The Brazilian cocktails went down a treat too. This place is another winner for Noosaville. With something like 40 cafes and restaurants within an easy walk it is the place for foodies.

4 family members attended for a birthday celebration (2 adults, 2 teenagers). This was our first time at the restaurant. The staff were very welcoming, attentive and polite. The restaurant is across the road from Noosa River and on hot nights i would recommend a seat outside, although it is on the roadside pavement. The restaurant is quite small inside and could potentially get noisy, crowded and stuffy. The food experience was enjoyable and a. Novelty. We all did the $38.50 option which included 11 different types of meat and a choice of 5 accompanying dishes such as pear and walnut salad. What the salads lacked in quantity was made up for with generous servings of meat sliced and served at your able. The meat was tender and tasty with options of beef, pork, lamb, chorizo and even chicken hearts. Tip: pace yourself as all of the meat becomes filling very quickly.
Drinks reasonable prices with a beer or cider at $7.00. There is an option of BYO wine with a nine dollar corkage charge. A reasonable choice of wines between 7 and 9 dollars a glass. Overall an enjoyable experience, would be happy to return. You will need to book in advance as the restaurant gets vey busy and has 2 sittings of an evening 6.00 and 8.00 pm.

Spent new years eve there. Friendly and helpful staff but I thought food would be a little better. Good location. We st outside as it wa s a hot night. Inside would have been boiling. Desert took 20-30 minutes to come out and we had to remind them. Good to try once. Better Brazilian on the Gold Coast.
