Perfect place for Carnivores

Welcome in the best place in Cape Town to enjoy meat. They have a large selection of meals. If you do not know what you want, do not worry. One of the nice waiters will come to your table with a tray to present you all meats that are on the menu. And you won't be disappointed: excellent meal... read more

Was really looking forward to a decent steak and had heard good things about this restaurant. Table was good and I liked the industrial basement style of the restaurant. The service, initially welcoming then deteriorated. The waiter really pushed the sirloin on the bone, almost as if his wage depended on shifting a certain quota of this particular cut of... More

There are a lot of restaurants in South Africa with good meat but Carne had it all! The service was wonderful, the food was great and the restaurant itself was very cool and funky. I love good meat but do not know too much about it (I just eat it and love or hate it). But the staff were so... More

We had a nice meal here. Being a steak eater I was not blown away by the steak. Overall it was a very good night with good company and good wine.

The service was very good, the wine excellent but there it stops. Out of six meals two were good. The steaks were either very rare where medium rare was ordered, sirloin on the bone sinewy, and last but not least the rack of lamb a disaster. After sending it back once because it was well done, it came the second... More

We visited Carne Sa on Keerom street on 14 April after a colleague recommended it and we certainly were not dissapointed. This is a meat lovers paradise! Staff very friendly and efficient and the food really great. I had the lamb ribs which was excellent however all of the options looked good. Will definitely visit them again. Best nights to... More

Mounds of meat. Piles of meat. Slabs of meat. This is what lions dream of. They bring over a platter of their cuts and explain the differences and you pick. Aged, not aged, wild game. Beautifully cooked, sides extra. Maybe half the price of a comparable meal in the New York area. Maybe a third the price. Too stuffed for... More

We have been wanting to try Carne for some time and now with money being a bit tight we managed to get a booking. We arrived early and was met by a friendly maitre'd who had no problem with our early arrival and showed us our table. Our waitress was really friendly and good. The meals, starters and main course... More

It's a very good place if you fancy a decent steak. They show you the meat and explain the different types of steaks before you order. Meat is of high quality and very well grilled in any way you like. However, I would have liked to find a proper fillet on the menu. Also the sides could be a bit... More
