Our group was put into the least attractive part of the restaurant: next to kitchen entrance, toilet and emergency exit. They could (did not want to) reduce the AC - everybody was freezing. Staff (especially the kid called manager) not at all accommodating. Why 3 stars? The food was really good!

A very good "all you can eat" Brazilian dinner in Cairns. The quality of the meat is high and the service is good. The restaurant is also pretty big and possibly you can go there without reservation.

Great food, this is a must visit when in Cairns. It is a great way to try Australian meats such as Kangaroo.

Brilliant succulent flavorful meats carved from a flame-grill skewer right at the table. Pork, beef, lamb, chicken, kangaroo and seafood. People from my group were still talking about how delicious it was days later. Don't forget to try the flame-grilled cinnamon pineapple to cleanse your pallet between courses.

I always come back to this restaurant every time I visit Cairns. Food and service never disappointed. Shout out to the Japanese lady who served us tonight, very friendly and helpful. My favourites are the pork, beef, sausage and pineapple. The cocktail drinks could be better but overall I had a great meal again as usual. Xx

Registered to dine in and advised 15 estimated waiting time. However, we waited for more than 45 mins but still no one call us. Seriously?

My partner and i shared a really lovely evening for our anniversary at the restaurant. The food was delicious and the service was both very attentive and professional. Annie in particular was very personable and really went out of her way to make sure we had a special evening. Highly recommend people visit Bushfire.

Thank Jeremy B

At Bushfire Flame Grill guests enjoy a Brazilian-inspired, Australian-style barbecue. Metre long skewers of succulent Australian beef, pork, lamb and chicken are seasoned, marinated and gently roasted on the churrasco grill. Waiters slice sizzling hot roasted meats from the skewers directly to your plate. The restaurant also offers an a la carte menu. Restaurant closes on most Australian public holidays.
