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.

Great food and ambiance. Just be prepared for a one-size-fits-all experience. Very limited if you just want a snack or are not a big eater.

We went to Braza for a mothers day lunch. We had an incident, where something in the food penetrated the mouth of one of the diners causing significant bleeding. I had to take the diner to RPA emergency.

Despite this incident no empathy was shown by Braza staff. We left halfway through lunch and no level of remediation was even suggested.

Terrible incident.

We had a lovely lunch here, but next time I think if you are to close the restaurant at 4pm for dinner service. Don’t let people book in at 3pm without telling them first especially when your paying $60 per head for an all you can eat. Very disappointing

Went on a Friday night for dinner. Some guest were late so we didn’t start any food services until they arrived. They provided us with drinks first. As soon as the others arrived we ordered our sides and the all the skewered meats started to arrive. The main service of sides were fantastic. Always making sure we had enough and asking if we wanted any special request of meat or seafood to come around. Which they did. Service was amazing. Music was great. Some meats were salty which made us very thirsty. Not sure if that’s just the flavour they want it to be but that was the only downside. Everything else was great!

I reserved one seat for myself to celebrate my graduation and the start of my career. The food was good and they really delivered the food rather quickly. The staff there are friendly and helpful. They explained things to me as soon as they learned that I was first time dining at this restaurant and they came around to check everything was alright for me. I will take family and friends to this restaurant next time for other occasions.

I was expecting more meat and better meat quality.
We spent more than 1 hour there and the service was quite slow, we didn’t have the chance to eat all types of meat that was on the menu.
And the meat we ate was sometimes cold or very dry. I hate well done meat.
The sides were ok.
The staff were great.
But considering the price I was expecting much more!

The menu was easily explained and quick to get the flow of food going. The entertainment was great!!..went around the whole restaurant so it did not matter where you were seated. Only when the drums were playing was it to loud to talk, but we were watching the show that for that short time it did not bother us. I highly recommend making a booking as we would have been stuck without it. Very close to Town Hall train station in regards of transport. The staff were lovely and friendly, the drinks were refreshing and the food was flowing! Could not have asked for a better night!

Don’t go for special occasions, they will NOT make it special for you at all. They are all too busy they won’t even know what occasion you are there for, even though you brought our own cake ... they just drop off the cake and that’s it... food was incredibly all salty (and yes it’s a known tactic for all buffet style food. Make it salty and make it hard to consume a lot and can easily push for more drinks) but it was really too salty.. I remember 4-5yrs ago it was a nice place eat but not anymore.

First churrasco for my children, something we cannot have in the town we live - we enjoyed Sunday lunch with loads of meat and fresh sides very much. All the staffs were very pleasant, too. Would be fun to join when soccer world cup is on. Thank you very much for offering the blissful atmosphere and meals!

We were quiet disappointed in the service, we didn,t get all of the dishes, definately not the amount on the menu and we dont feel that what we had was worth the money. But what we did get was very tasty. We will go elsewhere next time.
Thank you

We have been to many Brazilian barbecues in Brazil, Mexico, US, portugal and UK this was a very unpleasant experibece first of all they only offered the prime meat cuts once and the service was terrible. Obe we asked for more picanha it was practically roasted as they didn't want to barbecue a new piece I imagine because the closing time was 1 hr away. Also I mentioned it was an special ocassion my partners birthday and they couldn't care less they didn't even made the effort to send a 5dls cake slice with a happy birthday. Terrible experience I wouldn't return again and I don't recommend it.

I'll start with the one real negative - The book-in/seating was an absolute mess.
We'd booked well in advance, and let the staff know we were there.
We were told to wait at the bar or outside to be seated, and when other people started lining up to be seated - they were seated first. Not cool. We were still there 10 minutes into our booking time, which given it was a timed booking...would rather this hadn't happened.

The waitress assigned to our area was friendly, warm and courteous - taking the time to explain how things worked there for our dining experience.

The service in general was very good - the guys bringing around the various items from the BBQ were attentive, friendly and accommodating - our table requested a few times to have more/larger/smaller pieces of certain things. The appropriate information was given.

One thing though - I felt as though there were certain groups of tables that seemed to get a lot "luckier" with the frequency and availability of certain items...I think the routes could use some work.

The food for was delectable.
All served hot, seasoned well and not just the "same flavour on every meat".
The pork neck was Godlike.
The little teardrop chillis were delicious.
The garlic bread is some of the best I've ever had.
The chicken hearts...try those. Seriously.

Sides were all very nice too, served plentifully and replenished as needed.
Table water was bought and removed periodically.

I ate SO much...it's very tempting...you just look at the quality and smell these things as they're going by, and I was saying "yeah, ok" several times past the point of full.

I'd give the food an 8/10 - the mojitos were first class too.
Ordered a creme caramel off the menu too. Wow.

Also - You get your bbq FREE with your birthday. That's about a $60 birthday promo. You don't get many b'day deals that compare to this.

All in all, despite a couple small hiccups - excellent night out. I'd recommend it. Just skip any other meals that day.

I would recommend going to the Leichardt Braza instead. It is much less noiser and cramped. The service was not speedy. The flow of meats from the Traditional Churrascaria was not steady. Several times we had to ask for water and sides.
