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

Went for dinner with two friends and we all ordered different cuts of beef. The waiter showed us the board with all different cuts and told me he had "only two pieces left" of sirloin on the bone, that I ordered. I woke up the following morning at 4am with stomach cramps and had to stay indoors all day with... More

Good restaurant if you want to eat good meat. The meat itself is good, such as the way they cook it. Nice atmosphere too.

We had sweetbreads, ravioli, lamb rack, Florentina and added a portion of marrow bones to our meat just for a little... More

After a terrible waiter started serving us,we were ready to leave the restaurant,even though it was my Birthday dinner.The manager quickly rectified the issue and gave us the best waiter we could have asked for.The steaks were cooked as per our request and the wine kept flowing.We ended up having a truly unforgettable evening.

South Africa is a country of great meats, and Carne makes sure to highlight the finest of the animals and the cuts. Some of the meat is sourced directly from the owner's farm in the Karoo. There is always a fun vibe in the place, bookings are advisable.

We had a Great dinner here. Nice food and very good service. A bit noisy atmosphere though - no big deal really but with a lot of concrete and high leveled guests. Fast and great all the way.
