Meat of very good quality with a very efficient service. Nice terrace overlooking the Burj Al Arab. Meat is quite pricey but this is the price for quality.

Decided to eat here and used a buy one get one free voucher which was excellent value. If we hadn't had this then the meal would've been quite expensive. That being said, the food was great. The steaks perfectly cooked, great wine list and attentive service. We had a reserved table out on the deck and although I note some... More

Excellent food. Steaks were done to a T. There was a mix-up with our order but this was quickly, smoothly and courteously sorted. I would go again to this lively happy eatery.

We have been to the Meat Company a few times, more recently with family from Switzerland. Fantastic ribeye, excellent wine selection, attentive staff (Donna) and great ambience. The folks at the next table we're celebrating a birthday, the staff broke into a South African birthday song. If you like your steaks, a must visit establishment.

My two musts were a good steak and a cold beer. But this restaurant provided both in spades - great Chateaubriand, good wine list, and a good selection of cold beers. Friendly staff, good ambiance.

Great food and service. Both steaks we tried were sensational and cooked perfect to our liking. It is expensive though so make sure you come here with a full wallet and enjoy your steak.
