A little confusion at the start of our meal, however it was cleared up quickly & the staff were all friendly, happy and knowledgable.
They had a great sense of humor, were fun and created a really enjoyable dining experience.
It is a real shame they are closing the doors of this awesome restaurant.
Oh and the food was sensational!!!

A unique dining experience that was enjoyed by all. Service was a bit slow sometimes and we were only asked once for a drinks order as we sat down. It would have been better if a waiter came to the table regularly to check if all was still okay, refill drinks orders etc. Other than that, was fantastic. Food is great, experience was great. Would recommend it.

No air con and we were seated right next to the kitchen where it was extra hot! We had to keep asking for water and the people serving didn't understand us. The price has gone up to $55 per person which is a lot when you're super uncomfortable and sitting in the heat! Not good at all. I won't recommend to anyone because I'd hate to think that any of my friends went there and had a horrible experience like we did.

If your're a meat lover it's good.
Myself being a vegetarian and having to pay a set $54 per head - the same price for the all-you-can-eat meat option is a rip off!
There was no option to just order a separate meal for myself which was very frustrating.

The last two times I went to braza manly the service was very average. There was not much option for people who don't eat red meat. I was seated for around 20 min in my take and only got a piece of fish the last time I went . I request few side dishes to the waitress and only came when I was almost done eating. As a matter of a fact I have to ask the waitress around 3 times to bring couple of things to my table and every time she passed by my table and had forgotten what I ask. I normally like braza a lot but I'm not sure whats going on with the costumer service there lately.

Novelty of the way he meat was brought out was great. Service was fast and frequent. Beautiful view overlooking manly beach. Side dishes could be better and larger and cheaper. . Bread??? Orders cheese bread nice but too small.
Overall great meal in a beautiful setting. Missed the dancing girls- not sure if it's a Friday night thing maybe?. Was hoping to be a treat for hubbie with the dancing girls.

We always enjoy going to Braza. At this occasion- Fathers Day it was nice but could have been better. Lots of waiters but not many staff going around with meat. The sides came one by one and not all together. By the time one side arrived the others were already finished so waiter had to go back again for the others. Anyway, this is just a feedback for this sort of special dates as we are there for the meat rodízio which was not 100% satisfactory at that time.

I had heard so much about Braza but the visit was quite disappointing. I had one friend amongst 6 of us that wouldn't eat because of health issues and they wouldn't allow him not to pay. I had to insist with the manager to be able to. Then the side dishes weren't that great either. I had a better Brazilian BBQ in Churrasco at Coogee.

Overall I had a ok experience, because food was delicious.
What did let me down, and would make me think about booking again, was the house policies. It was very stressful to book a table for more then 12ppl. They made it look like it would be so busy and asked to put a $150 dollars deposit ( which I have never heard about). I can see where they are coming from, but in my opinion, that's a risk a restaurant has to cope with. The place was very quiet, so I don't get why all the fuss about asking for a deposit.
And then, they said I would have to pay $10 per head for non showing guests ( when I told my guests about it, they suggested to cancel the booking and to go to a more friendly environment). And to top it up, I had one guest that don't eat meat, and only came for drinks, but she wasn't allowed to stay if she wasn't eating. Once again, I understand that some people might say they won't eat, and nible here and there, but you can't just make a rule based on a few untrustworthy customers. It was very uncomfortable having to ask her to leave so we could start eating.
The side servings was very small, so we had to reorder waaaay too many times ( which was very annoying). Neither me, or my other 13 guests would recommend Braza manly for a group booking again. I would definitely go back for the delicious food, but will never again celebrate with more then 4 people there.

Amazing food, excellent service, will definitely be going back and would recommend. Only down side was we visited on a Tuesday night so it was very quiet and not much atmosphere. But the staff were great, really chatty and helpful with the menu, so that made up for it :)

Eat ON your birthday is false advertising. Booking date was made specifically to celebrate an 18th birthday however its only once we registered the birthday online that you learn of the term and conditions and by then it was too late for us and we could not take advantage of the offer. In the past we have dined at Braza (Newport, Northern Beaches) and we just had to show ID as proof of the birthday. We were very disappointed!

Had heard good things and so decided to try Braza for a birthday party with friends. After a slow start I was concerned that food may not be coming around. BUT shouldn't have worried - it comes thick and fast and plenty of it! Sampling everything, it is difficult to get through it all!
The beef and lamb courses are the best - SO tender and with flavourful bark. Chicken is chicken - even when it is wrapped in bacon. So best to save your space for the other meats - and be sure to ask again for your favourites to come out. All you can eat - and we DID.
Be sure to also sample some of the sides - not meat but also delicious. Grilled Haloumi is a highlight and also some kind of cheese filled bread/dumpling - woot!
The place is LOUD so quite difficult to have a conversation. It could do with some sound deadening material on the walls/ceiling. But as far as the food goes - delicious and plentiful.

Thank you .
I have been many times to Braza.
First time I bought vouchers. All was good, except I didn`t understand why I wasn`t able to vouchers for 3 people. It was possible for 2, but want possible to buy for 4.

Wish you all the best and see you next time,
Anne

LOVE Braza - however, you could tell this is a newly opened restaurant, the service wasn't as quick as Darling Harbour, the atmosphere was low key and sadly the pineapple was undercooked giving a bitter taste, usually my favourite! Will visit again once they have found their feet - as the meat is amazing!!!

My partner and I were expecting great things when we booked dinner at Braza Manly. We were seated promptly. Once seated we were greeted by a lovely waitress who took our sides and drinks order on her mobile device. 20 minutes had passed and we had not seen any sides or drinks brought to our table. The couple behind us who arrived after us were well on to their main meal. Our order was missed and after 25 mins of waiting we exited, unfed, and unhappy. It's not difficult to be organised Braza.

Fantastic food. Although lots of guys brings the skewers around there were not many other staff for drinks or side orders, It took us 15 mins at one point to get someone's attention for more water and sides.
