For great food with good friends – Fireside Bistro is heating up Norwood.

Since opening its doors in January 2015, Fireside Bistro has been cooking up outstanding T-bones, rump, fillet, ribs, deboned chicken, calamari, mussels, prawns, salmon, kingklip, trout, boerewors, springbok, oxtail, ostrich, burgers, baguettes, salads, soups, and more.

Built around a unique open-flame grill in the centre of the restaurant, diners can watch the culinary theatrics as skilled chefs cook their food to perfection. And don’t forget to check out the amazing variety of South African themed artefacts that cover the walls.

The well-known head chef/owner has trained locally and in Italy, with over 20 years of experience in kitchens around the world. Cooking is his passion and he is deeply committed to using only the best ingredients available – offering consistently excellent food to suit all tastes.

Fireside has already built up a loyal following of regulars who have come to consider this comfortable, cosy bistro a home away from home. So, come and experience Fireside Bistro – the new gathering place in Norwood. It’s the place to go for a memorable meal. And we bet you’ll bump into a couple of old friends too…

A note of caution: It has come to our attention that there is a gang of car thieves operating in Norwood, specifically targeting Toyota 4x4s (especially Fortuners). If you drive such a vehicle, please take extra care when parking in the side streets and always make sure your security system is armed before walking away. Alternatively, use Uber for extra peace of mind. Please note that we cannot accept liability for anything that goes on in the streets. Thank you for your understanding.
