Gemsbok was on the menu ( a large assortment of steaks, chops, etc. were listed along with the gemsbok). The gemsbok steaks were well-aged, tender and well prepared... read more

We had a fantastic steak and ribs meal - apparently the ribs were only 'half', but it must've been a huge animal as there was loads of meat!! Service was good - and it was very good value.

I have never had an average experience here... every time we head to Butcher Boys, i am confident that the dinner (or lunch!) will be excellent - perfectly cooked aged steaks and great service.

I thought I'd had the best steak ever in Cape Town 10 years ago. This place beat that hands down. The food was excellent as was the service and all at a very good price. Why do I have to live so far away from such a brilliant restaurant?????

What a lovely place. Really good service and helpful staff. The food was cooked to perfection and was very reasonably priced. I have no hesitation in recommending this place and would certainly visit again.

As this was right across the road from our hotel The Benjamin, it was the best choice. Recomended by the hotel. Food was really tasty, well cooked and very reasonable.

We stayed in Durban for a week in late Feb 2015. Had one lunch and one dinner at Butcher Boys. We also tried several other nice and recommended restaurants in Durban. Had 600g T-bone steaks, Ostritc and Wildebeest. We are 2 adults + 2 teens family and voted this the best in town.
