Went with large group for end of year function. Restaurant was busy, so food orders took a while. Not impressed that we were not informed about kitchen closing 2.30pm, meaning that we weren't able to choose deserts.

Very good service. We visited Butcher Boys on our first night in Durban and South Africa. The menu extensive. My highlight was being able to try African game. I has Wildebeast and was not disappointed.

Great selection of food. Meat and vegetables fresh. Busy with the locals so you know it is a great place to eat. Average service - on arrival they were fantastic but our waitress had a constant frown/angry look on her face.

WOW!! This was definitely one of the BEST steaks we ever had!! Perfectly cooked meat, excellent service, fantastic vibe!! We didn't have a reservation, so they asked if we want to sit at the bar and eat, as the place was packed with people. We didn't mind sitting at the bar, and we are so pleased that we stayed and...
