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.

Have been visiting Barassis for years, and always enjoyed their food. Have been twice for lunch this month and have been very disappointed both times. Two different dishes both equally bad, although the seafood basket today would have been hard to beat, very overcooked fish, prawns, uncooked calamari inedible., chips were ok and the salad, what salad 1 slice cucumber, lettuce and a couple of sticks of carrot. This was 12 noon, so no excuse for the food to be so overcooked. What has happened to a previously excellent restaurant.

Good menu and affordable prices. Plenty of options and lots of GF and Vegetarian options too. Car park and restaurant can get a bit full on certain nights but it's a great place to eat! Kids entertainment area and live bands available and raffles and member draws too. Definitely recommend!

Wednesday lunch at Cazaley's is an institution in Cairns. The $12 three course lunch is very good value, with soup of the day, five mains to choose from and three sweets. We'll be back next year.

This restaurant named Barassis is located in the Cazalys Cairns AFL complex. Whilst there are only 3 existing TripAdvisor reviews listed under “Barassis Restaurant” there are some 88 TripAdvisor reviews for “Barrassis Restaurant at Cazalys Cairns” including mine regarding my totally unsatisfactory birthday experience in January. After vowing never to return, I was compelled to go again some weeks ago for a birthday celebration for one of my wife’s best friend’s father’s birthday celebration. Whilst this time they actually did manage not to completely turn our order into a total fiasco, it still took way too long to be ready, in addition to their practise of not providing any sauce included with a steak order and charging $2 extra for it. The restaurant at Cazalys sister club in Bentley Park, like just about any other restaurant serving premium steaks, includes your choice of sauce, and an additional serve of sauce is only $1.

We ordered our meal at 8 pm at 8.35pm I went up and was told it would be another 10 minutes. I went up again At 9pm and was then told that they lost the order. So I chose to then have roast as it was getting late. We were not offered any refund for our inconvenience. When we got the roast meals they were cold and had to get them to heat up in the microwave.my issue is they had an opportunity to check the order R 8.35 but chose not to. When I challenged the staff at the 1 Hr point I was told that she was not dealing with the problem before. Very poor service.

We met friends for dinner on a Friday night. They had a band playing to entertain members and their guests. Service was slow but they were quite busy. Meals were a decent size and reasonably priced. My Caesar Salad tasted good :)

Went to Cazalys for Sunday Buffet - it was OK. Choice of fried eggs, scrambled eggs, hasbrowns, sausages, bacon, toast, crossiants .... all the normal buffet breakfast offerings. It is inexpensive - between $10-$15 depending if you are a member. If you have a hungry tribe - easy to fill them. Resturant seating is modern and comfortable. There is a large kids playground to keep them entertained. The operating hours for the breakfast buffet are limited and is offered on Sunday only, so make sure you check out the opening times early (it was from 9am to 10:30am when I visited).

My wife and I went to Barassis at lunch time today for my birthday and we ordered the seafood platter and the garlic prawns main courses. I asked the girl at the register if they accepted Amex and she said yes. The EFTPOS rejected it so she said tap it before finally realising they did not accept Amex. I had to tell her to reset the EFTPOS before the payment was finally made with Visa. After almost half an hour of watching other persons who ordered immediately before us and after us collect their meals, I approached the counter to inquire what had happened to our order. The lady started checking order dockets and spoke with one of the cooks, before telling me our order would be ready shortly. A little while later she handed me the garlic prawns, and when I stood there waiting, she asked me if there was a second meal. She again started searching the order dockets and asking the cooks, before finally finding the docket that they had misplaced. I sat down and ate the prawns whilst my wife waited a further 10 minutes for her meal. She later blamed the fiasco on their computer system. I was going to go to Graziers at the Balaclava Hotel which always has great meals and service but I made the mistake of going to Barassis instead. I won't repeat the mistake.

Hi Fred F. Thanks for taking the time to review Barassis at Cazalys. We do apologize for the delay with your main meals on your last visit. The kitchen has advised that there was a computer glitch on the day of your visit which resulted in a delay with your order. Whilst other areas of the club (reception, bottle shop, functions and bars) do accept Amex the contract caterers who run Barassis Restaurant unfortunately don't and all restaurant staff should be aware of that but it seems that there was a new trainee on that day you visited.

We often Dine here and when we had friends from interstate we had told them how good the meals were so decided to take them. We were so disappointed - Ran out of Chicken parmi, no Chicken and camembert, No Schnitzels, No Rumps - So just about everything that we tried to order you had ran out off. The Service wasn't the best either - Usually its Awesome! But I guess it was our mistake by staying and wasting our money, when you didn't have any products available. Ended up having Sirloin steaks and would not recommend, Left disappointed, let down and still hungry after spending a couple $100 between the 4 of us was very disappointing especially after just renewing our 2018 member ships! Hopefully improves through out the year.

Thank you for taking the time to review Barassis at Cazalys slouise1989. Unfortunately there was a big run on our popular chicken product and rump menu items when you visited the club just after Xmas. Being that time of the year and with our the restaurants major suppliers being closed we were unable to source a quality replacement product.

Agree it's now pricy for standard club food, in a canteen atmosphere. Wednesday member lunches 3 course at 12 $ is the go. Also roast dinner at 16$ in the evenings.

Good atmoshere, great staff, daily menu specials. The a-la-carte menu is a little on the expensive side for a club though. Salads around $15, schnitzel $19-$20 and mains $20-$25. The carvery special $16 is good. Members Wednesday lunch is a pearler! 3 courses for $12. The prawn stirfry and rice was nice but gravy was very salty. The pork chop and peas was tasty but again gravy very salty. We had the share platter ribs which came with side salad. It consisted 3 long ribs with thin covering of meat. Good for entrée size but for $15.90 we expected a bit more. Overall we love the club and atmosphere but is over priced.

Good choice of menu and Al acart meals available. Nightly specials and discounts for members. Kids room is fantastic if you are wanting to offload the kiddies while you have a chat (age restriction 4-12 yrs). Nice atmosphere and layout with live music lounge. Unfortunately staff were quite rude at 2 different times during our dining experience, may have just been a busy night. We will be back and hope to enjoy more of the menu.

Thanks for your review and feedback Madeline M. It is unfortunate that staff at the restaurant were found to be rude on your visit and as such further training will be given to those two staff members for their improvement. Once again thank you for taking the time to lets us know about your visit.
