Wonderful feast

The steaks are possibly the best in South Africa. Have the lamb ravioli as a starter and either the aged Prime Rib or the Hanger Steak for main. The wine menu is very good, as are the grappas. Shame they no longer allow diners to bring their children as mine really enjoyed the food. Children can be... read more

A group of us met up for dinner and drinks at Carne and had a great evening. The bar is well stocked and the barmen attentive. The home made crisps all too addictive. The food was very good and the service excellent. The waiter giving us a heads up that due to load shedding some deserts might be a challenge... More

Beautiful loft design restaurant, specialized in meat. The concept is great, you sit and your waiter will bring you all the meats of the day, knowing everything about each piece. I highly recommend this venue is you are a big fan a meat. Service is great, and the wine list is varied.

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, excellent... 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
