Bestest place for game meet. Very pleasant environment. Staff is friendly and very informative. Prices are not too expensive and you pay for a good lunch and get value for your money. Very generous in their servings. Good variety in drinks.

Imagine a restaurant serving unending portions of game and domestic meats, by waiters clad as Masai Moroni, and bearing the meat on Masai spears. Sounds like great fun, doesn't it? Well...that is the Carnivore of the past. It was once a must do for all...More

I had some reservations about this restaurant as it can too easily become a parody but I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and selection of meat. My favorite: ostrich! The staff was super. Great evening out.
