I had a portion of barbecue ribs that tasted delicious. Probably the best in Joburg.
My dad ate the wing rib and loved it. You can taste that the chef cooks with love. We were treated like family here.

Fireside Bistro is amazing! went there on a recent trip to South Africa - there were several of us and everybody raved about their meals - steaks and chicken were our choices that night; salad was delicious, as are the roasted vegetables. We tried 3 desserts, all great! It was so great that we went back there a second time - this is a testament to the restaurant because we did not have many nights to try out all the other places and this one had us come back twice! Terrance and staff are lovely - everything is great, right up to the music!!!!!!!

If you're looking for a great meal and a friendly, welcoming, relaxed environment - look no further. This place is simply brilliant! The owner is also the head chef and he take the quality of his food very seriously. Very well priced.
