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.

It’s a great place , however as we were siting outside last Saturday night , next to our table there was cockroaches , this was Not very pleasant when you are trying to have dinner with family and friends.
Perhaps monitor a bit close the surroundings to be controlled by pestcontrol .
We like the place , we will give it another go , however if we find anymore of these crawling creatures around we won’t go back!

Food on arrival was plentiful as well as the side dishes. Meats were good with sauces for the first hour however after that there was a lull for over 30 mins. We seamed to miss a few of the meats and pineapple and when asked if everything was o.k. were told these would be coming soon. I noticed the waiters being instructed a couple of times to ensure we received the beef ribs (these have to be the best) and pineapple. Near the end of our seating session we were asked if we had finished and asked for the 2 missing dishes. They eventually did arrive however not before other tables were served twice and at the very end of the session.

I feel the quality has slipped
Meat was overly salty or not cooked properly
Chinese broccoli is my fave side but it was over cooked and lacked any love

Was very pleased with the food, got the 60$ Meat buffet. Everything was fresh and tasted delicious. However there was a lady servicing us which came and took our plates before we were done eating. Like she wanted us to get out of there ASAP. She was constantly on our back therefore I wasn’t pleased with this. Rest of the workers were very good.

The food it’s great, but meat comes to the table to red like it’s cooked out but not inside, I think they should cook it more time so we dont eat raw meat or maybe have a variety of meat selection cooked and raw

Food and service was good. Was seated where the sun was glaring and made it quite difficult to see. Would have appreciated a table swap given that the reservation indicated it was for a birthday.

Serving staff are not particularly friendly: made us feel as if we were being annoying by requesting specific cuts of meat. Also complained both in person and online (still no response in spite of a promised 24 hour response time) about a lack of dress code: my male “neighbour” was wearing an ill fitting tank top so I was treated to a flash of nipple when he moved to get food - difficult to avoid given the closeness of the tables!!

We were dissapointed by valentine's menu. We just wanted traditional churrasco without any dessert and we wanted to buy some spirits to drink. We couldnt do that because we could only take bundle with the dessert and the drink (could be just wine or soft drink ). We paid additional $40 for something that we didn't want. Even normally churrasco is not a cheap thing so we were quite discurage because of this situation especially when we needed to buy also additional drinks because we are not enjoying wine or soft drinks and were not eating sweets so the dessert was just wasted.
Overal it was really nice but because of this i cannot give 5 stars.

I’m sorry to say but the quality of the sides was shocking they looked old like they had been cooked days ago we had to continually ask for dishes that we d see served at other tables plus the vegetarian options is rubbish it’s not the same as at the all you can eat meat there are much better places to try Brazilian in Sydney

Exceptional table service, good quick rotation of meats to try, and attention to needs was great.
Only negatives- would have been nice to have plates cleared of meats you didn’t want ( cant please everyone’s palette) and the two piece band was so loud you couldn’t talk- compounding everyone’s need to yell. Music was very good, just too loud.
That said, had family who had never experienced lapa before, and they are heading home to brisbane to try and find one.
Thanks for a great night

The food was fantastic however, the service was absolutely dismal. Our waitress advised us we couldn’t order more than 1 side until we had finished what was on our table. We did not receive half the food available on the night, the same food continued to come around and there was no variety. You can imagine this was extremely disappointing as we all pay a lot of money to eat here. This is a shame as my husband, friends and I always dine at Braza in Darling Harbour however, following this experience unfortunately we will not be returning.

Good food , BUT we felt we it was not fair. The pineapple and shrimp came very late. I kept on asking for the pineapple about 3x, they just said its coming , but came very late when we are already full, even the shrimp came so late , I guess they do not want the guest to get more shrimps . Some would not stop on out table. thanks to our attendant bec she asked if we miss something, ( she knows we did not taste everything bec some servers would not stop on our table).

We had a very disappointing experience. 3 of us arrived at the allocated time and sat at a table at the front of the restaurant. It was a very hot day. The sun was beating down at the windows and we were close to a rotisserie area with large pieces of meat roasting away. Several other diners seated in our area asked to be moved to cooler parts of the restaurant. It took forever to get a drink until the 4th person in our group arrived. We also asked to be moved to a cooler spot. Nobody was interested in our request. Several staff members discussed our request but nobody could make a decision - we knew they were discussing us as they stood pointing at us. Eventually a waitress came over to tell us that we could not be moved - even though the other diners had been moved and other parts of the restaurant were empty. She told us that all the other tables were booked. We could not eat in such conditions. We got up to pay for our drinks - nobody cared that we were leaving or unhappy. They just took our money and went back to their work. We were really looking forward to the meal - as we had been to the same restaurant on the Northern Beaches and we had a marvellous time and the food was amazing.

The outside dining on a calm night could not be faulted. Juicy tender tastey meat with amazing side dishes (my kids even tried the chicken hearts). Every staff member was SO helpful, explained each piece of meat/side dish and made the evening even more enjoyable. Have not stopped talking about our FANTASTIC experience

We have been customers for years but this time we invited some friends for the first time and it was a terrible experience. Firstly the air conditioner was not working as it was extremely hot and made it very uncomfortable. We had a bigger group so we kept on requesting side orders because they didn't bring enough to cover all of us. This became very annoying after requesting them for several times. But what made the experience worse was when we went to pay for our bill, we were told we couldn't pay separate bills with a credit card. We were told by the manager on duty that it was wasting her time if she had to process different number of card payments so she was only accepting two card payments and the rest had to be paid in cash. We told her that we didn't have cash with us. By this stage she was getting annoyed at us and became rather rude and showed a lot of impatience telling us that we needed to go and get the cash outside. She certainly does not know how to work in the service industry. We told her that we should have been given that information about card payments policy when we made the booking but she was reluctant to accommodate us. Terrible service by the manager.
It is sad because we hold quite a lot of family gatherings at your restaurant , and now with this experience we will definitely consider other restaurants, also we will definitely stop going during summer time if the air conditioning is not fixed or improved. We were all sweating and made it very uncomfortable.
