To call this restaurant an Italian themed steakhouse doesn't do it justice, but still feels like an accurate summary somehow. Located next to the high court and many legal chambers, gives you a heads-up it's probably very good. And it is! The presentation of the meat tray showing the incredible variety of cuts available, is entertainment in it's own right.... More

Nice staff. Nice ambience. Good food. The only thing I don't like is location. Not the best location for such a nice restaurant.

The food is AMAZING. Our waitress was very friendly, she showed us the various cuts of meat at the start, recommended how they should be cooked best and helped a great deal. This place is amazing value, and the wines superb!!!

Must start by saying that I went to their new outlet on kloof street and not this one on keerom street. That said, am told the kitchen is of the same standard. The florentina 1.2 kg steak must be shared by 2. But it must must must be had - had nothing as juicy and delicious as this one before.... More

We dined at Carne over the w-end and were so disappointed, the barman had no idea what he was doing when it came to making cocktails. Our waiter also told us he had no knowledge when it came to recommending a wine either. So unfortunate that a restaurant like this one is let down by lack of training.

Wonderful atmosphere, warm welcome & awesome steaks. Great wine list makes this restaurant one of Cape Town's gems. Again with some international visitors who are accustomed to eating in the world's finest, were suitably impressed. Thanks to Robin, our waiter for being so accomodating and attentive. Well worth the visit

Our family enjoyed a great meal at Carne -- lots of excellent choices of beef cuts brought to your table to choose. It has a cool "wine cavern"- like ambience, with a contemporary flair (not a waterfront venue, however). We would definitely recommend this steak house.

My wife and I have just had a delicious meal in this restaurant that was recommended by so many people, we felt we had to try it, and we were NOT disappointed. They do serious steak here. It is brought out to you on a platter so you can decide what cut and size you would like and how you... More

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
