Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a good basic eatery experience and great for anyone wanting something different. Food was lovely and staff good. Location is excellent. I’d been passed and expected more of a fine dining experience which this wasn’t. They do have an a la carte menu but we felt staff encouraged us away from it, perhaps it’s easier for them if everyone that night, does the same menu type. We had a good night and food was good, vibe & atmosphere was a bit lacking and it’s not a fine dining venue which was my expectation prior to going but that’s my bad not the venues.

We went to Wildfire on 30th December, we did not make a reservation, just a walk up, got a table straight away, received fantastic service from all staff and had the most wonderful meal - I really couldn't fault it at all. All up we just had the most fantastic time. I was looking forward to returning before we headed back home, so made a reservation for the 2nd January, had a completely different experience this time around and totally disappointing, had to wait to be seated, even though you could see there were plenty of tables available, ordered exactly the same meal that we ordered previously, waited a very long time for them to initially take the order and to be finally served, the eye fillet steak I received was half if not quarter the size of the one I had previously, very disappointing seeing the price you pay. My husband ordered a mash and chips as side, but received tomatoes and mushrooms instead, asked for it to be changed, did not receive it before we finished our meals. Spoke to the head Manager about it, he didn't really seem to care, and said, oh, we were just about to bring that side out to you - really?? About 30 mins after the complaint was made and we had finished our steaks. There was no compensation or apology for the issues we raised with him. It seems this place is really hit and miss. I must commend the head Manager on the 30th December, she obviously had everything working beautifully, can't say the same for the head Manager on the 2nd - such a disappointing experience second time around.

disappointed. The beef came out with blood still dripping from it. I like well done, not blue, rare or whatever. Cook it. Stopped eating beef. Had the chicken, was ok but expected better for the price paid. Staff were great no issues with service except getting drinks was very slow. At one point we were told 40minute wait for drinks. How can that happen in a licensed restaurant. Would not reccomend as good value for money.

We chose this spot for our early Christmas function. We had a party of 12 and were given a great table slightly away from other diners that had a nice little view out to the water. We knew going in that this was a place that specialised in meat and that provided continuous table service for this meat. This was a fun experience and definitely a meat lover's dream. The main meal was preceded by tapas and followed up with mini desserts (all fine) and there were some accompaniments to the main but in essence meat is the hero - and so if that's your thing you're likely to love it. Everyone had a great time. The staff were friendly and attentive.

Third time here, can’t fault the amount and selection of authenticity cooked Brazilian bbq. Starters, side dishes and meat that keeps coming until you surrender. What was great is the staff and service, checking all the time if you need more sides or a specific meat. The girls went above and beyond with a surprise cake and birthday song sung in Portuguese for my daughters birthday. It made our visit very memorable. Thank you so much.

Very disappointed. Went there for my son's 21st and had to wait for service right through out the night. We paid for premium and definitely did not get that. Some of the food came out cold and dry. The worst experience we have had in along time. And didn't even get some of the food on the menu. Told front of house and they didn't even care.

Overpriced for this level of both food and service. Here is the list of dishes we got to try: Chicken, Polenta chips, Calamari’s rings w/mayo, Lamb leg, Mussels, Beef rump, Coleslaw, Pork scotch, Sausages, pasta with mushroom sauce. Desserts: cheese cake and crème brulée. Two things were good: lamb leg and beef. Everything else is average, nothing special.

Great location. But the experience is very variable, highs and lows. The front of house staff put in good effort over all. But, the food experience is average. I would suggest that the focus of the place should be on good quality BBQ. The inclusion of Tapas as supplied is just noise really, most of the tapas doesn’t work in it’s own capacity. Salads were ‘aged’. The barbecue experience that comes after is also quite disappointing. It’s difficult to imagine with the extreme high quality of materials that New Zealand offers how it’s all packaged up into a pretty ordinary experience.For example some of the beef is chewy, the lamb is over cooked, the chicken servings on the thighs are large and fundamentally meatless but quite substantial etc, what? Frozen calamari with mayonnaise, what? My high suggestion to the management of wildfire is to jump on a plane to Sydney and go to the restaurant Braza and see how it’s done right.

We had the burgers with fries and a couple of local beers. Just the ticket! Burgers had great flavor and fries excellent crisp! Very satisfied, especially the quiet away from frenzy of downtown and great view of the boats!

This was a great meal. We had the 2 course meal and it was fantastic. They keep bringing out food until you can’t eat anymore. The food is great quality and staff very friendly. Location is great. Can’t recommend this highly enough. Espresso martini was also excellent

Lovely evening with family. We have been here a number of times over the years and mostly it has been very good. Tonight was excellent with lovely staff, great meats as always, and lovely sides. We thoroughly enjoyed our night and will come again. THANKYOU to the management and staff for keeping it all together during these post Covid tricky times.
