Twice we went to this restaurant, first we enjoyed the steak and next time the antilope and ostrich. Good service and delicious food.

My wife and I did not want to venture out town at night and decided to stay in our hotel for dinner before our flight next day. The steakhouse is pleasant enough with a lively bar just next door. The service was good and friendly....More

We decided to have dinner at the Butcher Block for a change. The setting was lovely and the service was decent but when we received our bill we were shocked. The food and drinks were way over priced. We paid R35 for a 500ml bottle...More

I decided that because I have a lot of work to do, to skip going to any of the nearby restaurants in Rosebank Mall, and just have a quick dinner in the hotel restaurant, Butcher Block. Major mistake on my side. The steak was fine...More

Limited menu (mainly steaks) with a few other options. Actually very good steaks but just think it is expensive compared to other local restaurants and a bit lacking in atmosphere. Worth giving a go if at hotel but not worth a special visit.

So many better places to go. Fillet was ordered medium but over-cooked. Fries good. Most disappointing was the roasted vegetables - more boiled than roasted and tasteless. Wince selection by glass very limited. Just not good enough to justify price.

We ate here as we were staying at the hotel. At least four of the items we tried to order weren't available. What we did order was actually very good but service was a bit patchy.

Food was ok--nothing spectacular. Priced higher than much better restaurants in the Rosebank neighborhood. Better choices are within easy walking distance.

The food here is amazing and I will come back again, without doubt. Though I wouldn't fancy coming here as a veggie and there aren't many lighter meals on the menu. However, there are some problems. Stock Control, now I understand that things sell out...More

My friends and I decided to go here for a special evening. It was absolutely wonderful, the service was friendly, the steaks were amazing! and the wine selection was great. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
