I had a nice dinner with a colleague at the Butcher shop. We were both happy with the food and service.

“Only for his restaurant I keep coming back to SA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

Best beef in town! Prime location on Mandela square with excellent staff who knows what they are doing. Value for money. Pity they didnt have the boerewors anymore as a starter but if you ask for it you still get it. Mouthwatering!

“Are they losing their touch?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

I returned to the restaurant remembering the awesome meal I had here 8 years ago. Ordered a medium-cooked prime rib as I was told by the waiter that it was the best. Mushroom sauce, baked potato. First of all, they need to improve the lighting. It's so dark in there that I couldn't see the face of the person across from me due to the bright sunshine behind him.
The steak came out, not even medium-rare, but very rare. The mushroom sauce was average but I just think if you have a meat restaurant like that, don't get the meat wrong!! I was jetlagged, so I didn't send it back which I know is very wrong but I just wanted to get out of the cave and into the sunshine, so I ate the exterior bits of the steak and left it at that.
The people who served me were nice!

“Underdelivered”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

Eye fillet it was not. When you get into an eye it should be like a warm knife thru butter not a hacksaw through hide. Oh and how do you know your steak was frozen? When water squeezes out of the meat as you press down so hard to cut it. Shocker

“Fish with Whole Mustard”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

It was the first time I ate a huge size grilled fish along with mashed potato and whole mustard sauce. It was yummy and it took me less than 10 minutes to eat the entire thing as it was so tempting and tasty
