The tastiest and best steaks in Durban, all cooked by Joop himself, who masters cooking 6 plus steaks at the same time, all perfect, as ordered. One can watch Ihim in action through glass windows. Our Durban vacation wouldn't be complete without eating at Joops Place. Booking is essential.

This venue is always top of my list when it comes to being a true carnivore! With Joop at the helm cooking every meat dish himself nothing ever seems to go wrong. Whether it is his experience as a butcher in the past or his passion to prepare the best steak ever I am not sure but he doesn't miss... More

Joops will definitely not disappoint you, their steaks are of the best you will enjoy in the country. Both my wife and I enjoyed one of their speciality steaks, which is a must. We recommend this as a must visit for you and your partner. Be sure to book in advance as this "boutique" is very busy.

I went to Joops Place for a birthday dinner after hearing many people raving about the food..it definitely did not disappoint! I had the Joop's Special which was literally the best steak that I have ever had. My brother ordered the pepper steak and said he could not eat another steak ever again, as it would not match how delicious... More

Not easy to find, but absolutely worth it ! Joop personally cooks all the steaks - with passion (if he is not there, the restaurant is not open), and you pick them out yourself before preparation. Very good wine selection of South Africa's always increasing number of top wines (mainly red here, of course). Great personal service. Go there, try... More

What can be said about Joop's that has not already been said? This place is legendary. You want a proper steak made with passion and love then you need to get down to Joops Place in Durban. A quaint small restaurant with a hell of a lot of atmosphere and sensory flavour. A large variety of choice on meat dishes,... More
