Was a very nice and cosy evening at the Fireplace. As it was a quite evening we got the full attention if the service, which was very nice, indeed. The steaks are outstanding. The wine list is a book of many pages. The selection of wine was supported by a very nice service lady. The quality of the Shiraz was... More

Been here a few times now and whilst the staff are lovely and can't be faulted there has never been enough to look after the bookings. We had a celiac and a vegetarian in our group and had rung prior to arrival when we booked to let them know. The vegetarian meal seemed like they had either forgotten there was... More

Restaurant is very good and food was exceptional. Loved the mushrooms and salmon. Service though was a little under rated. Had to wait for a while but overall a very pleasant experience.

Although we didn't actually have dinner here, one night we came to the fireplace to have dessert and ended up having the best cheese plater we've ever had. Big portions of cheese, lots of dried fruits and nuts and a wonderful muscat to wash it all down. Excellent service with a smile despite us arriving at 9:30pm.

Our second Christmas Day here, we loved it, food was beautiful, service was good although they could have done with another couple of staff to help as it was a packed house. The champagne flowed and we had a memorable day with our family, we look forward to doing it again next year, thank you Fireplace team.

We've had dinner here a few times. I love the wine menu, so many old world choices that I don't often see in restaurants on the coast. The steaks are truly spectacular. So clever the way they do it.
