Brazilian
The Bar, inspired by one of the most popular places in Rio de Janeiro (Lapa) takes its name, Braza Lapa Bar, which is an attraction not to be missed - presenting the first Cachaça Bar in Australia (Original Brazilian Spirit made of Sugar Cane), a selection of more than 80 types of beers and up to 160 types of wines - everything followed by a delicious Bar menu, which was made to match perfectly with this variety of drinks. It's a good option for those, who are just walking around Darling Harbour and are simply after a relaxing time.

Before we finished ordering our food, the sides were being served. There is a consistent flow of food, which tastes amazing, the ribs melted in your mouth. The food has been respected well in how it has been cooked!!

Don't be an amateur like me and eat with your eyes!! Pace yourself, and eat little bits at a time, the food will not run out.

Great friendly waiters, awesome atmosphere adding the Brazilian dancers and the cocktails were so dangerously good.

Definitely will making this place a regular.

When we arrived they couldn't find our booking which was a bit concerning, and then tried to seat us inside when we were confirmed to sit outside...

All was quickly fixed, and had a great night overall!

We went on Saturday Night for my Son in Laws 40th, just 4 of us, and we all throughly enjoyed it.
No wasting time the drinks were there straight away, then the food just kept coming and coming and coming until we had to say, we had had enough.
Dancing ladies men on drums there were a lot of asians who didn’t embrace the clapping and atmosphere that they were trying to achieve, but overall had a great experience.
They charged me for 3 glasses of wine when I only had 2 but when I asked them to change it there wasn’t a problem.
My daughter who is very unadventurous with her food, loved it and wanted to come back in December for her birthday.
Thank you all !!

Service was slow and lacked of variety delivered to our table, servers passed by us several times without stopping even when the green signal was on and VISIBLE on the top! Disappointed with the overall experience it has climbed down from standard, maybe not recommended to friends anymore?

Birthday meal, which was a disappointing the concept is amazing as we have one back in England but unfortunately didn't live up to expectations. The meat was cold or warm not hot at all. Side dishes were great but meat and fish not so much. Disappointing birthday meal...

I love Braza, I've been there few times. The food is amazing, I love churrasco, I love the environment.
The service is a bit complicated to understand, they serve you the sides in a very small quantity and you have to keep asking them to bring more and more all the time. They are already busy, so this can be a distraction, and it is not the main food, why not serve them in a bigger plate? people enjoy not only the meet but the sides as well, keeping asking all the time and the time that you have to wait to be served is not productive.

The service was so bad, we spent long time without receiving any meat on the table. We needed to ask several times for food. It's a very expansive restaurant, they should offer a better service to clients.

Always really good service, like no other. The waiters are really patient with such demanding HANGRY customers which is great thank you. Very attentive and positive experience. The food is so delicious that we had a few friends that have been vegetarian and just for that day they decided NOT to be vegetarian any more haha

The staff wasn’t paying attention to our orders. I had to ask twice for a drink and still didn’t serve the drink. And also we had to ask neat items from the all you can eat option the staff was deliberately avoiding serving our table. Overall bad experience and I will never come to this restaurant or recommend to any other.

We paid $60 each as a table of 2 only to be continuously skipped over for larger tables so we were barely given any food. When requested 3 different times we still never received anything. When complaining at check in the host just gave us free drinks. A coke and bottle of water (we had ordered tap water?)

The table next to us was getting great service but not our table.
The even Complained to the way the for us.
The prawns that were given to us Were soggy and very old.

By the time the waiters come and give us anything it's either finished or already very raw. Because they have given to everybody else before us. We ask the waiters to come to her several times but they just ignored us. So we just gave up and stopped asking. I have been there 3 times before that and only one time I have added service the other times are pretty much the same situation. All my friends or and Long Island ice teas and they were very very weak and watered down.

Brazas is one of my absolute favorite restaurants. Amazing food and great service. I think the only thing that could be improved is heating in winter for the area closest to the doors and I was emailed a bday voucher where you could only redeem it if you dine with three other people - which I'm sure many people miss out on due to people being busy or they may want just romantic bday dinner for two.

Food was great. Lots of variety.
Very disappointed with having to sit outside. There were no options provided. There isn’t enough heating outside. The staff at the door were very dismissive. The two of them stood there drinking coffee and chatting amongst themselves. We were pressured to leave from 8:10pm we were offered dessert. It arrived at 8:25 with no spoons and told we need to leave. We didn’t have a spoon eat our dessert. The waiters were very friendly. I advise you to ask for a table inside on a cold night.

We experienced the worst attitude by the hostess who was supposed to seat us. Not only her initial rudeness but also the way she treated us while we were finally seated, which was half an hour after our reservation time. We were expecting an inside table but were told that this requires a reservation 6 to 7 weeks prior to the dining date. No one advised us about this at the time of the booking. We booked almost 3 weeks in advance for 6 people. After finally having had our inside table, which took half an hour, we were told that our seating is limited to 2hrs (now we had only 1.5 left) and were served all food at once, feeling rushed. This dining experience wasn't pleasant at all. The service stuff, except the hostess, were friendly.

This my favourite restaurant. Fantastic food, lovely staff and great atmosphere, I spent a lovely night with family here for my birthday. Tables aren't cramped, with plenty of space around them so it isn't too noisy despite always having a big crowd there. Great entertainment with dancers and drummers coming out during the night. I can't choose a favourite of the meat as it is all so delicious and unique in flavour, my favourite of the side dishes would be the potato salad. Recently tried the original Capirinha and it tasted amazing, slightly sour and a good way to cut through the meat to refresh your tastebuds for more.
Great kids deals too, we saw lots of families here.
