As the name implies the specialities are certainly the steaks, the florentina steak is incredibly and highly recommended. Having a large variety of different cuts there will be something for everyone's tastes and the meat is truly well prepared and far better than the usual tourist venues at the waterfront. Will definitely frequent here again when next in the Cape

We have previously dined at Carne and were amazed at both the level of service and quality of the food. However, in comparison, our most recent experience was extremely disappointing. The reservation was made 3 weeks in advance and a specific table request was made, which was completely ignored and not honoured. We were seated at one of the worst... More

We went to celebrate the successful project with key people from our office and a meat loving colleague from Europe. Billed as an Italian meat restaurant there is very little Italian atmosphere except for the bilingual menu and the overall setting is rustic and noisy. Overall service was great and the meat selection explanation interesting and useful. Don't expect a... More

Came back again on a recent trip to CT and was not disappointed. The steak was incredible as always. The one thing that was pointed out to me by one of my friends joining me was that the "homemade ice cream" dessert could be a little more creative considering the style of the place. Other than that we enjoyed our... More

We returned to Carne havng had a good steak meal there last year. However, whilst ours steaks were good, the service was incredibly rushed. We arrived for a 7:00pm booking and had completed our starter and main course by 8:00pm - believe me, my wife is not a quick eater. Also the restaurant was very noisy, there are no soft... More

First night in Cape Town we went to Carne. I am a huge meat eater and this place does not disappoint. Reasonable prices, fantastic meat selection and excellent, knowledgeable service. There is fun in talking through each cut of meat with the helpful wait staff, then picking your exact cut. We had prime rib and lamb chops and while both... More
