Marble is Johannesburg’s first live-fire restaurant & a celebration of quintessential South African fare. Founded by award-winning chef, David Higgs & local entrepreneur, Gary Kyriacou, Marble embodies South Africa’s love of cooking with fire – a quality that distinguishes its food culture. Meat, fish, poultry, vegetables & breads are all cooked on coals.


“Marble is a celebration of quintessential South African fare. It embodies South Africans’ love of cooking with fire, a quality that makes our food culture different from the rest of the world” David Higgs.

Situated in Keyes Art Mile, the growing art and food hub of Rosebank, Marble Restaurant boasts a grand wood-fired grill imported from Grill Works in Michigan as the focal point of the restaurant. The concept combines the open-fire trend, seen internationally, with an added pinch of true South African flair.

We have long been fascinated by what makes South African cuisine unique, and we believe it’s down to being meat and flame enthusiasts. It is the timeworn ritual of cooking on wood fires and gathering with friends, the shared experience in the preparation. However, it is not just meat which we celebrate in this way, we boast an array of fresh ingredients all cooked on our perfectly prepared coals including fish, poultry, vegetables and breads.

Our menu celebrates the very best of local produce, sourced from our country’s most respected farmers and artisans. Beyond meat, our coals inspire seafood, fish, poultry and fresh, earthy vegetable dishes, not to mention our tempting desserts. Each day a seasonal showstopper pays homage to the delicious diversity of cooking with fire – a dish you simply have to try.

Awarded chef David Higgs’ quintessential South African fare, with his finishings, flavour and finesse, ensures that there is something for all good food lovers at Marble.
