Friendly service and quality food on Florida Road

I went to Butcher Boy whilst on a business trip to Durban. The quality of the food, service and wine were very good. The wine of choice for me was the 2005 Pinotage, an excellent compliment to a tasty meat dish in the restaurant.

We were a table of 12. They were keen to get drinks to the table, but were slow to take our meal orders. The starter helpings were generous, I have the Ceasar salad which was a meal in itself. The steaks were all cooked as requested from "Blue" to Well done. The meat was tender and most enjoyable. I did... More

Good service and steaks grilled as requested. They even have a selection (somewhat limited IMO!) of Craft Beer. None of this comes cheap - but it was worth it!

This part of KZN is a tough place to find a good eating venue. I'd all but given up when I came across Butcher Boys. It was such a pleasant surprise. The steaks are incredibly well prepared. The menu has excellent variety for every taste and they have a very competent wine selection. The service is very good as well.... More

Actually I went there twice in 5 days business trip. I recommend the green salad Feta and billtong, for the main course the Cote de Boeuf. It is just excellent! The minus. the service is quite slow.

I use to live in the Hillcrest area about five years ago but I’m now settled in the UK. On a recent visit back 'home'; we had dinner here with friends. It was very enjoyable! We got a friendly welcome; the service was surprisingly quick as they were very busy, the food was tasty and cooked perfectly. The general atmosphere... More

Standards are consistent. Always excellent steaks and above average service. One criticism is the quantity of the (excellent) sauces. Just silly for the price.
