Butcher Boys is always on my restaurant hit list when back home from the UK. Once again I can't fault the food however service was unusually poor for BB along with being shoved between two large work tables killed the ambiance. Hopefully the management can rectify the service issue as it is generally top notch so they may be going... More

A great steakhouse in Morningside, and were accomodated even without a reservation. This is a great place, with buzz and great ambience. Had the lsmbshank, while wife had ribs and lamb chops. Portions are generous, food is hot and orders delivered swiftly.

I believe the steaks are good though ours was drowning in the sauces we requested so it was hard to tell. Waitress was very casual and amusing but not too much when she broke the cork of my R600 wine. Location is good for Durban. Wine list consists of typical South African favorites. My creme brulee was a bit of... More

We took a business delegation for Saturday lunch at this restaurant. The food was very good and was enjoyed my all. The restaurant is located in the trendy florida road area which is surrounded by an array of eateries. I have eaten at this location several times and was always satisfied with my meal.i would recommend this establishment.

got a decent table with short notice on a weekday. The food variety was good however the meat I had was a bit hard. I would not rate this restaurant as a great one but it is a good alternative if you are staying close by. The staff were friendly and prices OK.

First tip is make a booking, this place is very busy, but worth the wait if you need to. We arrived in Durban fairly late in the afternoon so booked straight away on the advice of the motel manager. We shared a mixed grill and it was devine. Cooked to perfection and plenty of it. Service was impeccable. Desserts, spot... More

Excellent steaks cooked to perfection! Good pricing and outstanding, attentive service was appreciated! The wine list is excellent. Desserts come in small glasses, good, but Malva dessert tough & rubbery (recipe needs to be looked at!!!) A very pleasant evening out.
