Friends of Fire and Amphora at Marvel Stadium

Marvel stadium enhances its world class food and beverage offerings with the brilliant new restaurant additions of Amphora and Friends of Fire. We were invited along to a media event to experience these venues for ourselves.

After top notch cocktails (including the Elixir of Passion) at Amphora, with its classy moody fit out (modern style dining with flair), we (David and Mario) enjoyed dinner at American style steakhouse Friends of Fire (gate 3, level 1), taking in the theatrics of food cooked over flames and enjoying exceptional hospitality.

Scotch fillet (grain fed) cooked over flames with a fermented green peppercorn sauce was mouthwatering and the star of the show, while the Buttermilk fried chicken with hot honey and pickles was also a showstopper.

Friends of Fire also excels at non meat options and has a whole plant based menu developed by icon @shannon_martinez. The Woodfired broccoli with seaweed butter and Brazil nuts was a highlight.
