I was looking forward to this restaurant as it is highly rated on the Cape Town steak scene. Unfortunately I was to be rather disappointed. The house "dry aged" steak had been over-aged, and quite frankly smelled like crap. The wine we chose ran out after 1 bottle and we were substituted a different wine at twice the price. The... More

There was much hype about Carne so I was looking really forward to going. Unfortunately it didn't live up to expectation. The food is average and absolutely not fitting of the heavy price it comes with.

The concept is interesting - the meat cuts are brought to your table and your waitress explains a little about the animal and the cut before leaving you to make a decision. I chose beef medallions and my wife had the 'safari' cuts. Both meals were absolutely exceptional in taste and presentation. Our waitress, Robyn, was also knowledgeable and helpful.... More

Great place, great selection of meats, modern interior and friendly staff. A place that would scare any vegetarian. Worth trying if you love your meat.

It is truly an experience... The service started way outside on the road. We arriving on the restaurant road and there was a security very well dressed advising us that down the road was a private parking for the guests eating on either Carne or the other one in front (apparently same owner). Very impressive. Then on the parking there... More

To call this restaurant an Italian themed steakhouse doesn't do it justice, but still feels like an accurate summary somehow. Located next to the high court and many legal chambers, gives you a heads-up it's probably very good. And it is! The presentation of the meat tray showing the incredible variety of cuts available, is entertainment in it's own right.... More

Nice staff. Nice ambience. Good food. The only thing I don't like is location. Not the best location for such a nice restaurant.

The food is AMAZING. Our waitress was very friendly, she showed us the various cuts of meat at the start, recommended how they should be cooked best and helped a great deal. This place is amazing value, and the wines superb!!!
