This establishment is based off the Brazilian Steakhouse all you can BBQ. They walk around with skewers of various meats and once you make your way through al of them you can keep going! Being my first time in Australia I wanted to try Kangaroo, good but gamey. The service was quick and friendly, and the grilled pineapple at the... More

The advertisement is misleading... More

Went for the Churrasco. The staff are very friendly and helpful and explained the whole process. The side dishes came first and then the waiters with each meat. We found it better to eat each meat whilst having the marker as waiting otherwise it would be too quick and too much at one time. This was not a problem and... More

Food was ok, however service is slow and portions are small and intermittent. Very expensive for what you get. I won't be back.

We loved the food at the Bushfire Flame Grill. The menu included expertly prepared BBQ beef, pork and chicken and other great accompanyments such as potatoes au gratin and slads which are served idividually at your table. I wish that we had this style of restaurant at home.

Really enjoy this restaurant. As a family it has been 2 years since we were last here due to our moving away from Cairns. The churasco meal was top notch as always. The beef to me is always the star of the meat options. My son who is three enjoyed his meal and being three we did not have to... More

The best combination of flavors. I have never been in Brazil. However, if the food there is so fantastic as in Bushfire I am absolutely sure I need to go there.
