The meats are incredible and they come by every 30 seconds. Wish the side dished were larger especially when dining with a party of two or more. They get eaten pretty quickly. Also, there should be more veggies served with the meal to balance all the meat you are eating. On the down side, there was only one attentive server in the whole place. We had to ask for water at least three times and same for the sides. Finally one waiter decided to listen to us and came by with everything in a couple of minutes. When we got the bill we asked to have it split and were told they could not do it. A few minutes later she came back and said she could do it because it was raining and it would be a hassle for us to get money out. What a load! Well, at least the food was great :)

The long banquet style tables make this a great place for large groups. We had my partner's 30th there and everyone raved about it. The meat is very juicy and tender and the accompaniments (particularly the potatos) are delicious. Beware though, you need to pace yourself and not eat for about a week before going there!

I visited on a Sunday night. The place was fairly busy, but far from full. The problems I had with this restaurant were as follows:

- No salad bar.
- The cuts of meat were exceptionally fatty and gristly. If you like fat and gristle, this place is for you.
- Several of the servers kept passing my table by.
-The types of meat and their preparations were (mostly) boring and unexciting (beef, pork and chicken was it). With all that Australia has to offer on the meat front, you'd think they could add to the menu. Kangaroo, emu, etc.
- Only 1 or 2 of the meats came out on a skewer. NONE were served in the traditional way, i.e. slicing meat onto your plate (the stuff on skewers were all precut).
- WAY overpriced for what you get.
- The only bread on offer was a greasy cheese ball style.

Do I have anything at all good to say about this restaurant? No, not really.

I've been to Brazilian BBQs elsewhere and had a great time at those. This one simply does not compare. So save your money and dine elsewhere. I recommend the Indian restaurant a few doors down for a nice curry, or go for the kangaroo at Barzura a block or two away.

We're a group of 21 friends who booked a table at Churrasco Coogee Beach Friday 3rd February for the 8pm service. We were excited to meet up @ Churrasco because we have been raving about how good the food was. Needless, to say the night turned sour with a rush service done by the staff at Churrasco Coogee. Some of our friend came in about 30 minutes late therefore some of us had started eating. We had the booking @ 8pm and the staff started collecting the plates @ 9pm even though those flip cards were still placed on GREEN which meant that we still wanted food to be served to us. To our disgust, most of the witresses would come around the table with half a plate of meat or either almost empty so they would serve only some of us but the rest of the table was left with nothing. The people who came in late @ 8.30pm had only 1/2 an hour table service with trickles of food coming their way or nothing at all. We asked for the cinnamon pineapples to be served to us and we had to ask for it 10 times and we still didn't get it until one of us got fed up and stood up and spoke to the manager about the worst service we've had! Our table still didn't get pineapples, grilled zucchini and we still wanted some cheese bread...it only got to us when we spoke to the manager. To make things worse because some of us did not finish eating and our plates have already been collected we demanded that some of us be given a fresh plate to continue eating. They completely ruined the atmosphere and ALL of us on the table discussed how disgusted we were as to how we were treated. As a group of 21 people we'll make sure word goes around eastern suburbs about the terrible service we received @ Churrasco Coogee. The bill came to $900 for an hour's worth of table service! IF YOU VALUE YOUR MONEY DON'T EAT AT CHURRASCO COOGEE!!! WORST SERVICE YOU'LL EVER GET....AND YOU'LL WALK OUT STILL HUNGRY!!! UNLESS YOU DEMAND FOOD FROM THE MANAGER!! THAT'S THE ONLY WAY TO GET IT!
