About Black Fire Restaurant

Individualistic Mediterranean fare, which does not disappoint, awaits Canberra diners at Black Fire Restaurant on Mort Street in Braddon. A rustic industrial fit-out of exposed timber and bricks is softened with chandelier lighting and Spanish accents - like a painting of a bull and matador - while dark timber adds a stylish vibe, ideal for lingering over a meal with your special someone. From tapas plates of pan-tossed scallops, with crispy tuile, leek and potato purée and Romesco salsa, served on the shell, to seafood paella, there is something on the menu for all tastes; perhaps begin with smoked pork empanadas, watercress and cultured milk aioli. For the main affair, opt for perfectly grilled Angus tomahawk steak, roast potatoes infused with rosemary and thyme and sautéed greens.

Great food and great service
We dined at black fire on a Friday for dinner with a group of 5, the restaurant was very busy and for our first time there, we were trying to understand what it was about, then our server came and he explained it all... organic, sustainable, fresh produces, local farms etc, we ordered entrees : squid with tomato and salted cucumber, empanadas and favs fritters, very delicious.. for mains we went for pig, wagyu rump , pasta with lamb and the risotto.... amazing. Overall a great experience, finally something good in Canberra, .... the fire pit is beautiful, passing by to go to the loos, the chef told me about a slow smoking a piece of lamb in it.... marvellous


Very friendly service and good food
We wanted the Chef's Tasting Menu and the staff willingly changed a couple of the dishes in the Tasting Menu to fit around our dietary requirements. The food itself was excellent. A steady stream of delicious items. By the time we reached the slow cooked meats we were already so full we could not finish the generous portions so we got to take a treat back home for our dogs!


very nice. I had a great experience with my family, food is very good and service excellent
