Had an excellent dinner there with various grilled meat and some typical african side dishes, good service. Big place with terrace area, gets packed at the weekend. One of the best places in town. Next to it some interresting and elegant art galleries.

I loved Carnivore! Sure, it's filled with tourists, but I wouldn't call it a tourist "trap". The atmosphere is amazing! The music, the lights, the people from all over the world, the humongous cats roaming around... everyone seemed to be having a good time and that energy was kinda contagious!

The food, of course, includes a lot of meat! There is a vegetarian option as well, which was lucky, as we had a couple of vegetarians in the group. There was chicken, pork, ostrich meat, mutton, beef, crocodile... all of which I'd already tried before. What I had new there was ox balls! It was only weird cos I knew what it was. :P

Their drinks were potent and that combined with the music and the atmosphere, made it a very fun evening!

I found this restaurant to be so-so. I guess they have grown too popular - service is efficient but impersonal. The food was fine but the whole experience feels a bit like a staged show.

food, and soooo much of it.
Excellent value for money. Vegetarian's beware, as the name suggests, this restaurant ISN'T for you.
So much meat of different variety. Ostrich steaks, Camel Hump, Crocodile to name but a few! And your usual chicken, Beef, and Pork.
Only downside it is a bit touristy but don't let that put you off
