Wow, where to begin with 'The Carnivore Restaurant'! Firstly, the most relatable experience would be that of a traditional Brazilian Churrascaria (steakhouse). Essentially, you pay the fixed price, which includes a few salads, sauces, a baked potato, dessert, and all the meat you can reasonably consume. Seriously...no time limit, like at some other churrascarias, The Carnivore allows you to eat... More

This is a must visit restaurant for many reasons. However, you need to make sure you have the right expectations going in - first starters don't expect the most exotic animals. The meat is generally from animals like kudu/gazelle along with alligator and a few other standard meats. That being said, its a real unique experience with a fun ambience... More

We had a fabulous experience here with our small group. The food was wonderful and the atmosphere and "show" was excellent. Would definitely recommend and go again next time we are in town!

I've heard about this restaurant for many years now so was glad when my husband booked a visit. Staff were friendly (not overly friendly but nice enough). And so for the food ... Nice. The restaurant doesn't offer so many of the rare delicacies it was first known for (which to me is a good thing) but it still serves... More

The Carnivore is just what the name suggests. Meat and lots of it. This Brazilian style steakhouse uses a large charcoal pit to roast and assortment of proteins on large skewers. This lends a bit of char as well as smokiness to an assortment of meaty goodness. All the usual suspects were served as well as rabbit, ostrich, crocodile, and... More

Unlimited meat. Need I say more? Dinner is best when you fill yourself on a plethora of meat and great sauces with yummy condiments. Then you can get your dancing shoes on and go to the club if you're there on a weekend. Great music and the Dawa is a must if you haven't tried it. Carnivore is also known... More
