This is my 2nd visit. We always make a point of dinner at the BB's when on holiday at the Oyster Box. This place is amazing for food, service (Abi was our waitress) and value for money. The steaks are top quality, great wine list. We love this restaurant and it was great to see my Dec 2009 entry still... More

I went on a recommendation of several friends, and was slightly disappointed. For me it felt like a adult Spur. When I compare prices to other and far better steaks in Durban, BB's wouldn't run a place. Their service is good though, so if you feel like overpaying for ordinary meat and have a babysitter for the kids, give it... More

Visited this restaurant on several occasions. A good experience altogether. Service is very good, lovely atmosphere. Steak is above average, nevertheless R185 is outrageous for a sirloin.

This is the place to visit if you feel like having a great steak. I had a T-Bone and it was absolutely great. The service was excellent. We arrived without a booking and had to wait about 10min for a table, but this was no problem. I will definitely visit this restaurant again during my next visit.

The meal was amazing; perfect steak, excellent veggies. It was the best meal we've had in four weeks in South Africa. Go and enjoy!

We were very impressed with our first experience at Butcher Boys. We reserved a table on the enclosed verandah, and it was a good position to be part of the atmosphere. Our food was really good. Our starters were fresh and well prepared. I had the bone marrows which were very rich and delicious. But this meant I hardly touched... More

A great place to eat on Florida Rd. Very good food (it's my favourite burger in SA!). Friendly staff, not too expensive. Can be busy especially at the weekends so may be worth booking. Would recommend for a straightforward meal.
