An excellent meal and topped off by a really top drawer wine list. While the meat was of the highest quality, Carne is just short of getting 5 stars as I feel that the cuts are slightly overpriced. That said, the service is outstanding, the setting very inviting and a completely enjoyable experience.

I honestly cannot believe that I have been living in Cape Town for 6 years and had never been to this restaurant! I have never tasted such good steak in my life! These guys know what they are doing. The atmosphere in the restaurant is great and the service top-notch. There is a bar and lounge area upstairs which looks... More

Every time I visit Carne, I cannot wait to go again. You will eat the best meat, cut and cooked perfectly at a price that is respectable. The service is excellent, and the atmosphere is very cool. I would challenge anyone to find a better meat restaurant in the Cape Town.

We have the Parma Ham served with melon and Asparagus as our starter. Both delicious. Our mains were Sirloin and the Prime Rib on the bone. Both were excellent but the Prime Rib on the... More

It's very good but not the best steak that I've had in Cape Town. The price is more reasonable than Tripadvisor indicates.

This restaurant came highly recommended from the hotel we stayed at. It is a strange place in that it appears to be in the basement or downstairs of a building. It has an atmosphere that is hard to describe. I felt like I was in the old butcher's area that now serves as the dining area. Don't get me wrong,... More

This is the place to go if you are a true meat lover. Dry aged to perfection, prepared as ordered. No sweet bastings to spoil the meat. All the best cuts always available. Any size/mass you prefer. Sweetbread and other niceties on the menu. You love meat - you go.

I came here for dinner with my friends and all of us said it was the best meal we ever had! Our waitress, Cliflin was very friendly and showed us all the different meat cuts we could try. The meat was cooked to perfection and they made no fuss about changing orders. The restaurant is designed beautifully as well. We... More
