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.

We understand about keeping the flow of customers coming in. Being rushed to eat our food when we knew that we had to be out by 6.30pm. We didn't get the meats come round quick enough and sometimes we waited 15mins then when we had 30mins to go food started to be taken away from the table.
Even being rushed to make payment was very unprofessional money given to cashier was $365 but some how he only got $315

Our first time there, the 3 of us we went on a Thursday night and it was perfect although a bit noisy a bit hard to hear people on our table. Service and food was amazing, it just kept coming round unless you used the red and green sign on your table to let the servers know that you wanted a break
We will definitely be returning, thank you for your hospitality😊

I have been to many churrasco places around the world and I have to say that by far this was one of the best experiences I’ve had. The meat selection was outstanding, the frequency that the servers came around was great, and the waitresses were always ready to help. We had kids with us as well and it was a great experience for them too since they had the kids churrasco pricing. Highly recommend it and I will go again when I’m in Sydney.

I think everything was excellent! Just one downside... there was someone in our group that could not drink alcohol and we asked if she could get a soft drink or something else instead of the caipirinha for her. The waiter offered a "free" Mocktail, but when we asked for a refill he told us that the Mocktail was charged... he went to talk to the manager and they insisted in charge the Mocktail... I am not complaining about the waiter, by the way, all the waiters and waitresses are amazing. I am just frustrated because we were in four, everybody had the rodizio and the $15 additional for "the whole adventure pack", the total for the meal was $310 and they charged the mocktail $8 instead of just changing the drink or giving any other option for my dear friend who could not drink any alcohol at all... everything else was superb, I truly recommend!

Although the food itself was pretty good and tasty, we kept being ignored/avoided for the route of the guys with the good meats. Trying to flag them down, they just tended to head off to the busier tables who kept getting looked after all the time. I wonder why that is...

Was pretty disappointed actually - Leichhardt was a favourite venue for us but since it closed, we thought we would try Darling Harbour. The price has gone up to $58 per head, but the quality of food and frequency that the table was approached was pretty much lacking for that price. As someone who doesn’t eat pork or seafood (my problem, not theirs), the beef, chicken and lamb options didn’t come around more than once (this wasn’t necessarily a bad thing as most cuts were quite bland) - the highlight was the garlic beef, but despite asking for it to be brought around again, it wasn’t. Basically for $58 I received around 10 pretty small pieces of meat, which was definitely not value for money. Add in 2 cocktails and my share at almost $100 was not worth it, esp as I left hungry. The waitresses when we saw them were polite, but things like drinks and ice had to be asked for twice, despite the restaurant inside being empty. All in all, it was a disappointing lunch and we wouldn’t go back again.

I found that the service was the worst I have ever received, one of our party was a vegetarian and the reason we choose to come was because of this factor and the rest of us could ignore the other menu. Every time to meat went passed it was repeated put I front of the vegetarian and the blood from the meat was going into her food, when asked if the meat could be cut by me or anyone else I was ignore. The wait staff were unable to understand what I was saying and I found them very rude, when it came to our 2 hrs of having he table we were still finishing our plates and drinks we were rudely told we need to leave now even tho we were just finishing up, I actually thought they were going to get security to escort us out it was badly handle when we were paying over $500 for the meal, whilst we finished our drinks to leave we had the wait staff rudely stare at us what felt like intimidation, the reason they said we needed to leave was there were people waiting for the table, looking round there was literally 15/20 tables free and upon leaving no customers waiting.
I’m going to make sure that none of my family or friends ever attend here!

A very nice dining experience, service was fast, friendly and efficient. Had a pleasant table sat outside. The meat was cooked perfectly and there was a fairly good constant supply of meat coming around.
The only problem was with some of the non meat dishes did not make it outside. We only sae the garlic bread once in our two hour visit and the seafood also not brought around often.
A system where these speciality dishes are rotated between in the inside and outside diners could be considered

Amazing! The Garlic Beef and Pineapple with Cinammon are a definite must-try.

Really appreciated the staff who sent the pineapple straight to our table right after we mentioned we were waiting for it to come around.

Thank you for a wonderful dinner!

The one criticism I have is that I ordered a chamomile tea which was delivered to our table without a tea cup. I had to request for a cup so that I could have my drink with my dessert.

Otherwise, the food was outstanding, customer service was friendly and fast and the restaurant ambience is fantastic.

It was mine and my husband's anniversary and we were happy that we dined at Braza.

Thanks for a great night.

It would be a good idea to have more of a child friendly menu...rather than saying we have to sit in the other section which means group is split because they prefer something else rather than the buffet?????
MORE FLEXIBILITY REQUIRED!

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.
