From the moment we entered until we left this was a 5 star experience. We were given a table in what looked like a wine vault with our steak knives in a special leather covered box. I ordered the tuna tartare and honestly it was...the best I have ever had. Fillet steak and ribeye steaks were what we had for mains along with sides of mash, creamy spinach and cherry tomatoes salad. We can’t wait to return when it’s a birthday Special thanks to our waiter Niko and assistant manager Bernard who made this a special evening for usMore

We had an amazing meal here at the meat co. Food is beautiful - we both chose the fillet and it was the best we’ve ever had! The service was amazing - attention to detail was superb. Shelly and the rest of the team were...excellent. Friendly and efficient!! They sang happy birthday to the birthday boy celebrating with us and it was an exhibition - bongos, harmonies, the works!

Nice place, pretty quiet being very close to Burj Khalfa. Meat dishes are excellent, fish and seafood are also great. Proper wine list which suits the food menu. Very kind and polite staff, especially Mr. Maphosa. Recommend!!
