“Their prices are on fire”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

I asked around for the best burgers in town, many told me this was the place. A bunch of my friends and I went to try it.

Pay attention to how they store their wines & Knives, its interesting.
we sat upstairs and the menu had so many options to choose from but thankfully our night out was about burgers which is pretty affordable for a place like this.

Our waiter wasn't the best but we managed. They present you with a bread backed with fruits as a starter.

The cheese burger is good i went for the gourmet burger (it has pineapples) it was good! Their fries are yummy and they use a whole wheat bread. Tiramisu for a dessert was okay, not the best i ve had.

They have an awesome birthday song to sing, African style.

“Decent food&drink but horrible waiters”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

We really enjoyed every dish we've ordered: New Zealand steak, MeatCo Caprese salad, Ceasar salad, chicken and mushroom soup and a carafe of Chardonnay, creme brulee and espresso. They serve delicious bread as well. The views over the water toward the Grand Mosque are splendid. The waiters were completely estranged as if did not expect the customers to speak at all. However, the manager (or whoever this nice gentleman was) arriving at the end of our dinner to check impressions was rather nice.

Ask for a table on the second floor near the window to have a view!

“Average, Overhyped Steakhouse”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

The Meat Co sounds "fancy" i guess, defiantly good branding and its a well known south African joint apparently, it is hyped up because everyone knows about it. Anyway none of that matters, what matters is the "meat", so you pay top dollars for the meat here, costs you about 250 - 300 DHS per steak, not a big one either. Tried the AMerican, NZ and Australian at different levels (medium, medium rare) and all failed the tenderness and flavor test. I wasn't impressed at all, the side dishes werent that good either, especially if i'm shellin out so much money i better expect some good steak right there, and how about much larger sizes for us hardcore steak lovers?

If you wanna try it go ahead, it makes for a good 1 time visit but not a regular.

Service was great though, and ambience is pretty good. I came here for a business meal, and would also recommend this place for such events.
