8 Reviews for Brazz on the Green
One of our other party members tried their ribs though and upon trying one of those ribs myself I must admit did not taste bad at all.
So from that experience my recommendation is keep to the ribs and fries on the menu. Try not stray much further from that.
The menu looked great and wanted to try out the ribs. To my surprise the Original ribs were mounted on my plate and tasted amazing. My partner had a Pizza and again they are not shy with their portions!!
The staff were extremely friendly and we felt very welcome.
Since living in Queenstown, Brazz is somewhere we defiantly go whether it be drinking their beer, eating their $10 breakfast or going in for dinner!
Definitely a must if you visit Queenstown!
Really nasty help here. Have met with nothing but kind, generous & helpful people in NZ until I had the misfortune to step into this restaurant to ask for directions (being new to the town) and if I had had a good experience I would have brought my party back for lunch. However, the blond woman in the office was so surly & rude (she actually purposely sent me on a wild goose chase when the place (not another restaurant) was right across the street. When I went back to ask again she escalated her rudeness & surliness. I’m sure the poor staff will back up her story because she is the type of person who will make any persons life a living hell if they go against her whims. She would not give her name, she would not admit to being the manager & she would not get the manager for me.
It’s set out like many other bistro type bar/restaurants. Looking like an upmarket rustic pub with wine barrel tables and lots of wood.
Staff are friendly and attentive and the place was nice and clean.
The meals themselves weren’t overly impressive, but they weren’t horrible either. The salt and pepper calamari is good, but similar to the rest of the menu pricey for the portion.
I got the sense that the ribs were marinated for long periods so the meat falls of the bone. The 1/2 original rack turned out to be about 4 ribs, which is hardly a big meal and for $28 you could leave feeling a bit ripped off. In saying that, the meal is still a reasonable size with coleslaw and fries on the side.
The ribs are certainly better than you would find in something like Lonestar, although you would get a much larger serving in Lonestar for a similar price. But I wouldn’t necessarily call them legendary.
Would be tempted to go back just to check out the rest of the menu, but the ribs haven’t endeared me at all to try them again.
For the price and the hype about the ribs we expected much more from our meal. The meat was dry and overcooked, and I suspect they had been pre-cooked and then flash-grilled before serving. The ‘secret recipe’ sauce tasted like a standard, out-of-the-bottle BBQ sauce mixed with salt.
The staff were polite and the atmosphere pleasant, however the food was of a very poor standard.
