I have eaten in similar restaurants in London but this establishment had a special zing to it. The restaurant is based in old lawyers' chambers near the High Court in Central CT. We went down to the basement dining area which is decorated to fit the serious nature of the food fare on offer. You are presented with various cuts... More

My father and I booked a table here for Christmas 2014 and this restaurant turned out to be the best decision we made that holiday. As we were only in Cape Town for 3 nights we decided to go back every night because we knew we wouldn't find anywhere better. The food was fantastic, the meat was all perfectly cooked,... More

My family was in town and celebrated Christmas Eve here! It was a very pleasant experience with great food and service. My parents had the 1kg T-bone which was delicious and the other entrees as well. Would go back if ever in Cape Town again!

I have been a regular visitor to Carne since they opened, eating there 3 or 4 times during our annual month long Christmas visit to Cape Town. Carne was always one of my favourite places. Sadly this year, after 3 very disappointing visits I won't be going back. Carne used to be cool, with great food, amazing atmosphere, excellent service... More

We had a very good dinner tonight at Carne. Despite a small mistake on the order, the waiter was a good help for wine and he did all his best for the service. Prices are correct and meat was awesome Definitely a good spot in Cape Town for meat lovers!
