Carne for Carnivores

We visit Carne each year when visiting Cape Town and it never disappoints. My husband loved it so much this year that we went twice! The quality of meat is superb, the sides delicious - you must try the ravioli and the Bresaola! The ice cream is amazing and they stock Meerlust Rubicon one of our... read more

Last night I took my boyfriend out on date and we decided to visit Carne. This was both our first time to the restaurant and had no idea what to expect. We were friendily greeted at the front door and shown to our seats. There was barely an atmosphere as there was no music playing, which caused our date to... More

Sister restaurant of Keerom 95 across the road. If you are in the mood for steak then you can do no better. The restaurant lacks a little atmosphere and is a little below ground level. Ideal for the meat eater.

As a devotee of South African meats I had a wonderful meal with family and friends. The waiter obviously knew his way round the meat cuts and the results were marvellous. Highly recommended.

A perfect venue for a carnivore. My only criticism, is the lighting, as where we were seated, it was very dark, and not so easy to see the food. The other tables with adequate lighting were all occupied. The meats were all amazing, and cooked to perfection. I chose the 3 medallions, with 3 different sauces, which was a great... More

A meat lover's dream! Perfect cuts, fabulous taste! This restaurant had my meat cooked to perfection! And the TASTE, WOW!!! Compliments to the chef! Loved that they show you examples of the meat cuts before hand, it made my choice so much easier.

This restaurant is well worth a visit if you want to treat yourself. The food was amazing (the house special prime rib does not disappoint) the wine was lovely, the atmosphere was nice. Our waitress, whose name I sadly didn't take, was a total credit to the place. Discovering we were visitors from England she took the time to write... More

We were recommended Carne by our tour guide and the 7 of us, all in CT to watch the cricket, didn't need any encouragement to head down there of an evening. There's a nice bar area where we grabbed a beer, then we were shown to our table. Andrew was our waiter and he went through the menu and showed... More
