4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

We went in winter so Butcher's Boys was bit quiet. Steak was nice, service was very good but we had better during our trip.

“excellent, if you are in Durban you have to try it out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

Very nice, medium size restaurant on Florida Street, famous amongst locals and also the restaurant the tourists recommend if you ask. The owner is usually there and it shows. The menu covering a range of tastes. I tried the ostrich and the kudu steaks with mash potatoes. very very tasty ! ostrich a bit more chewy meet but it was cooked beautifully. We picked a local Sauvignon Blanc, the 5 of us were really in a great mood after this amazing dinner. There was really no more room for desert but somehow we managed to fit it some ice cream and creme brulee.
You will not regret the experience and will share the plates pictures with friends on facebook :) .... I had about 20 likes to which I replied : wait until you taste it :):)

“Good steakhouse, good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

The service was good, food was simple but good however keep to the meat as that is their best dish. It gets noisy and obviously popular for special events, but if that doesn't bother you then your ok. I found it a little pricey for the portion provided but enjoyed the evening.

“Best Steak in the World”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

If you dont eat Steak, dont even bother. I have eaten steak my whole life, and try various methods of cooking steak at home. I love different cuts and sauces. I have never tasted steak better anywhere else. This is a meat lovers paradise, you can even choose your specific cut of meat from the butchery. Service was excellent, waiters were attentive and helpful, they worked together to ensure the patron recevied attention. Excellent Experience, well done guys.

“more staff needed?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

went on a saturday night in a group of 7. was very crowded but had a good vibe. service was pretty ordinary at the beginning with waitron having to be reminded about drinks and no real attention to little things (bread arrived as an after thought; questions about menu items addressed curtly). waitron seemed to become more pleasant as the bill grew so by the end of the evening we were being waved off like old friends (such warmth would have made for a fine welcome as well).
food was good and dessert very pleasing. not cheap but a good group night out
