Joined in on Christmas in July and the fund raising for hospice at Alex in fire. Great atmosphere and heart warming food as always. Thembi served us with a smile and good sense of humor. Always good to see establishments giving back. I look forward...to my next visit Alex on fire that's for sure. 🤤More

On Sunday myself and my family attended Alex on Fires ‘Persfees’ celebration. They hosted an incredible event- which I look forward to attending again next year! They had a superb three course menu, starting with a minestrone soup and ending with a classic Christmas pudding....My Gammon main was mouth wateringly my good, and my partners chicken roulade was out of this world!More

My first impression as we approached, was what a dodgy neighbourhood. This truly is a hidden gem. The beautiful outdoor area where I can see myself enjoying a family outing on a lovely Summer's day. A cosy fireplace inside to keep you warm on those...cold Winter days. Friendly staff and an excellent breakfast. I will definitely be back in Summer.More

Everytime we come back, the experience is even better! The food was incredible at their annual Helderberg Persfees Christmas in July lunch event. The ambience was amazing and we felt like we made new friends with some of the other patrons as it was such...a family affair. I highly recommend anyone keen on a meal out where you get value for really good but simple food.More

Joined a group of friends for Alex's annual Christmas in July celebration, what an absolutely fantastic way to celebrate the years halfway mark! With lovely decor and an absolutely incredible set menu ( at a very reasonable price) this was an event I absolutely intend...to enjoy many more times. My lunch consisted of a minestrone soup starter, followed by the best Chicken roulade I've ever had for mains and topped off with a rather delicious Christmas cake for dessert. The couple of pieces of Gammon( the other mains option on the menu) that I manged to pilfer off my girlfriends plate was also something to write home about. A big thank you to the Alex on Fire team for a fantastic and memorable afternoon!More

Alex sits in an unexpected place. A bit of a scruffy neighbourhood. But don't be put off by that. From the parking area with the old sidecar motorbike, the brilliant seating outside under the trees, the diy showerhead cum fountain, through the door where a...friendly fire ushers you in from the cold, you are transported into a magical world. Once you're over the fireplace and the cosyness around you, you start noticing all the quirky petrol head paraphernalia in the restaurant and the beautiful photographs on the walls. We had a great time sipping on delicious coffees. The brownie squares served with it are to die for! I ordered the pork poke bowl, and I am convinced its the best one I've had till now. My companion had a generous cheeseplatter and also loved it. Top all of this yumminess off with excellent attentive service and very readonable prices, and you can understand why I will be back...again and again. Well done!More
