I went there for the first time after a recommendation from my friend. I ordered Greek salad and prime rib. It was grilled as ordered, tender and tasty. The prices are on the higher side, but totally worth it.

A totally awful experience which should have been super. Spoiled by poor service! And completely raw meat!! I had taken my son on Friday 23 may 2014,for a special lunch we ordered the large meat skewers and asked for them cooked medium to well done. They were slightly brown on the outside and each piece completely raw on the inside.... More

The chicken escalope was nicely cooked and a generous portion. Sadly, the vegetable side that went with the chicken escalope was paltry, room temperature, and a bit under seasoned.

Excellent visit here - the food is great, the staff are helpful and the wine menu is superb. A must on any Trip to Johannesburg, plus if you are from Europe you will find the prices very reasonable.

Use the option of getting off the butts and go and inspect the piece you want to eat it is just around in showcase. Oue experince was a ok steak but not great considering the price. I saw the other customer using some coupon, investigate if any coupon is available. Going to this place with coupon would be ideal. Price... More

The Butcher shop is conveniently located on the third floor of the City Center Mall near the movie theater. It serves excellent burgers and steaks. We opted for their lunchtime special of fish and chips which was very good. Very large portions of fish - we could have shared one plate.

The Butcher Shop of Manama, Bahrain is located on the top floor of the City Centre Mall, right next to the mall's Cinema. If you are looking to have a hearty meal in the mall and don't mind paying rather heftily, I would recommend either Cafe Italia or The Butcher Shop - depending on whether you want a good Italian...

Pros. Visited there a several times with family and friends. Great service, great food and well made biltong and dry sausage. If you love steak this is the place to go. Take home the great tender meat if you intend to have good BBQ. Cons. (management please note from frequent client). Serve at least something green with the meals. This... More
