Open fire dining in Paarl

Biltong-spiced lamb chops, melktert ice cream & live music

Last updated: Tuesday, 19 March 2024 

FYRE Dining gives a whole new meaning to “out of the frying pan and into the fire.” An open fire that is. This new restaurant on an olive and wine farm is all about meat, fire, and smoke; think braai-style meals with a fine dining twist, like biltong-spiced lamb chops and truffle pap.

Amidst vineyards and olive groves sits FYRE Dining on Olijvenkraal Olive and Wine Farm. You’ll see peacocks strutting around and little bonsais adorn the entrance of the sleek black building. As day turns into night, their live band sets the tone for the evening with sounds of jazz. 

The menu features a selection of “fyre bites” like pap en vleis (braised and smoked beef short rib, served with parmesan and truffle pap), braaibroodjies (with grilled matured cheddar, red onion, and chutney), and skilpadjies (lamb liver wrapped in netvet, served with a roosterkoek).

For mains, South African classics are cooked over an open fire. They serve flame grilled prawns, and chargrilled biltong spiced lamb chops, with smoked bone marrow mash. There's also fire-roasted chicken and venison loin, with spicy butternut salad. Sides include braai favourites like potato salad and pap en sous. 

Vegetarians are sorted too. There’s dhal curry, served with cumin flatbread and sambals, and black rice and mushrooms with a white wine reduction. They’ve even got a kids menu with boerewors and chips, and macaroni and cheese. Of course, the meal wouldn’t be complete without malva pudding cheesecake or melktert ice cream.

They’re open for lunch and dinner. Image: @marcellenel_
