We love Black Fire and have been three times recently. We get the banquet each time and they are very accommodating for special diets including coeliac. We let the staff wine match for us and have never been disappointed. A favourite for everyone.

We went here for breakfast having previously had a wonderful dinner. Unfortunately breakfast was a fizzer in terms of the meal and service. While the food was okay it was hardly anything different from any other venue in Braddon. And service was just tired

It doesn’t make me happy to have to do this to what used to be such a wonderful restaurant but believe me things have really gone downhill. For a start the staff would have to be the worst I have had to deal with anywhere....More
