You want Sth African game then Carne is place to go! Great ambience and lots of variety in terms of food. Great service too. Be warned though - hard to find so leave time to find the place!

It is a well-decorated place and semi-fancy style. The highlight goes to the steak selection. I had the safari game selection which was very good! They brought it at the correct asked medium cooking and the flavor was really special. Ostrich, kudu, impala, wildebeest each one with a particular taste. There is a reasonable wine list and the appetizer was... More

If you are a meat lover, then this place is a must! The service is incredible and the steaks are cooked to perfection. There is a small choice for non-meat eaters. The wine menu is extensive and the ambience is really great.

We were extremely disappointed as we were told that we could expect excellent food. . The ribeye was tough, had a strange flavour and then we both had gastro the next day. Prices are high , bread was nit exciting at all and the small portion of spinach was flavourless. We have eaten at many high priced restaurants all over... More

For all those TA reviewers who put this in the top 50 restaurants in Cape Town, I can only guess that they didn't really try too many restaurants in this foodie town. The place was noisy, the ambience pitiful, the service terrible and all these were the strong points when compared to the food.

Neither the food nor the service live up to the price tags in this up market steakhouse. The food is good but far from wow and the whole evening had a distinctly average feel.

Went with friends for dinner, as I personally do not eat meat I was looking for vegetarian options. I thought due to the reason that the owner as 2 restaurants (95 keerom and Carne) it should be no problem at all. I tried to order vegetarian meals, unfortunately there are only 2 available. So we split those two as starter... More
