“The best Brazilian restaurant outside of Brazil.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

I have traveled to Brazil twice now and this is the first Brazilian meal I have had here in Australia that was spot on with flavor and meal quality.
There are a number of Brazilians who work there so the food is genuine.
You probably don't want to eat the day before because there is so much fantastic food and in just keeps coming.
TUDA BEM.

“Best Brazilian BBQ Ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

We thought the Aussie BBQ was the best ever but after dining at the Bushfire Brazilian restaurant in the Esplanade Cairns, this is the best BBQ we've tried and that's saying a lot from true Aussies. We decided to book in for the $39.95 EarlyBird Churrasco Special (order by 6.15pm and out by 7.15pm - doors open at 5.30pm) where you get a selection of salads, corn, potato, rice and beans and ....a selection of a variety of meats namely: Beef, Pork, Kangaroo, Lamb, Chicken, Chorizo and a seafood dish (not grilled). Basically this is a "Sampler" where the wait staff bring the BBQ'd meat to your table and cut slices off for you to try. After sampling each one you can then choose your favourite meat then have that as your meal.

Honestly, we thought we were good eaters, but after trying each of the meat selections and a little of the salads there was no way we could eat any more. It was all delicious and it would have been a hard decision choosing which was the favourite. We just could not eat any more. For the service, size of the meals, salads it was reasonably priced. Drinks are not included however bottles of complimentary cold water are made available at the table. The staff where very friendly and happy to talk about the cooking methods and food preparation, and the view overlooking the Esplanade was pleasant.

You can book online or check out the menu in advance on --- http://www.bushfirecairns.com/churrasco.pdf

Would we dine at Brazilian Bushfire Grill again....in a hearbeat !!!!

“Good Brazilian style restaurant on Cairns”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2012 via mobile

It is always very nice to find a BraIlian Churrascaria style restaurant far away from Brazil.
Even though this is not 100% identical a Churrascaria taste, it has a nice BBQ taste on all meat.
The service is amazing and the place I very nice (one of the best atmosphere on Cairns).
I strongly recommend to try it and it is better to get before 6:15 to get the promotion price.

A Brazilian experience in Cairns? Well it sounded weird, but we tried it and it was wonderful! What a GREAT time we had - nice atmosphere. So much food, great drink, attentive waiters. We ate and ate - everything they served was flavorful and delightful.

“Best service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2012

From start to finish we were met with very happy and extremely polite staff. It was so lovely to go somewhere where you felt as though you were valued as a customer. Every single one of our needs were met and we left with the fullest tummies! It was a fantastic experience!
