Probably the best steak in Cape Town. I had an 8 week dry cured sirloin on the bone that was just amazing. Paired with a good shiraz and great coffee at the end this was a great experience. Oh and by the way the service was stunning.

First thing was the welcome, warm and friendly on a cold evening. Service great, we were there for meat and wine so we could not have come to a better place. Superb menu, Italian rather than pure steakhouse, but a large grill menu. Indulged in sweetbreads, lamb ravioli and a sirloin washed down with great reds. If I lived anywhere... More

We ate here last year on our annual visit to Cape Town and, again, very good food and ambiance. The rump was a little tough, but my wife loved the filet! Overall, very solid.

We were recommended this restaurant to try a variety of local meats on offer. The meanu was vast, the waiting staff very helpful and courteous. We were able to see all of the meat and cuts of meat before deciding what to order. The quality and the value and the rd wene recommended to accompany the meat were all amazing.

If you love meats, this is the place to go. My friends and I were introduced to this place by a family of locals. They highly recommended this place to us, and having dined there, I can fully understand why. The atmosphere is good, the service is wonderful, and the food is absolutely amazing. After being seated, our waiter asked... More

We went to Carne at Keerom Street and were informed that this is their flagship restaurant in Cape Town. Carne was recommended highly to us by another South African family we met at Gondwana Safari. The starters we ordered were amazing. I would recommend the Ravioli and Bone Marrow. The Veal Tongue Carpaccio was good but paled in comparison with... More

This was an amazing restaurant, rivaling the best steak houses in the US and meat rivaling the flavor a of Argentina and Brazil. The selection of raw and aged meats (including game meats) was outstanding and was presented on a tray, completely raw, and chosen for preparation at the time of the meal by each guest. My suggestion, get the... More

We arrived at Carne expecting the best. From the moment we were greeted at the door tilll we were bid farewell on our way out we had a thoroughly enjoyable evening out. Attentive service, superb antipastas, brilliantly prepared steaks and awesome pastas bursting with flavor. Thanks Carne.

A very nice restaurant in a nice section of Cape Town. The food is meat heavy, so vegetarians should look elsewhere! The meat selections are wonderfully described and nicely priced. Would recommend going a little earlier (we were there around 630), as it seemed that the selection of some of the specialty cuts (one month dry aged t-bone) was limited.

Thank Tracy R
