The best steak in cape town if not all south africa

My umpteenth visit and still completely perfect. Decor has not changed at all in probably 30 years but hell I love it. Jimmy the owner and chef cuts each well aged steak lovingly and cooks it on a grill himself. The steak is always exactly as ordered and tastes heavenly. He also make a stir fry... read more

If you are serious about meat, calamari and mussels this is definitely one - if not the - place to be in Cape Town! Thank you Jimmy for all those memorable evenings full of taste, fun and joy! See you next year, Claus and Daniela

Buzbey Grill has been around for decades and it has many patrons who go there often for their especially good steaks.

We found Buzbey's just walking down the street playing tourists. Looked interesting and Trip Advisor gave it great marks. We have great steak in the U.S., but Jimmy's is the best we've ever had...hands down! We went back for a second night and it was equally as wonderful. Plus, the atmosphere is charming and Jimmy is a delight!

So many amazing reviews but i found them to be quite average.steak wasnt bad but over priced and cold with no sides. Very slow service and average decor. Maybe it was just an off night. But i felt it was a lot of hype in reviews about an average restaurant with average steak - definitely not best steak in cpt.... More

A long established restaurant which is owner managed. Each order is prepared by owner Jimmy who ensures steaks done to perfection. Try the popular mustard sauce But don't be in a hurry as this is not a fast food joint. Advisable to book. We visit regularly and find the service excellent.

Visited this restaurant with some friends. Food was extremely bland and although there were only 2 occupied tables within the restaurant it seemed that because the other table had more guests the only eaiter present (which we assumed was one of the owners) tended mostly to the other table. Probably because she saw that we were locals. The food really... More

A place to visit when in Cape Town. Jimmy on the grill, God in heaven. The steaks, onion rings and service are old fashioned and make for a great evening.

The steak is to die for, a hugely underrated place to eat would suggest it to everyone. Food never not done to perfection.
