“Great variety of steaks”
Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

Up there with the best. Big variety of cuts, ageing, grain or grass fed which can be confusing. Important to make right choice to fit your taste. Can recommend to all meat lovers

“The best Steakhouse in Jozi!!”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

This is the absolute best Steakhouse in Jo'burg. The variety of steaks available is amazing and it's been cooked to perfection every time. The wine list is good and the owner's personal touch makes the restaurant experience a pleasure on every visit.

“Best steak in a while”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

Wow, the quality, cut and the cooking of the steak was perfect! Cleaned out every bit of my plate. Lovely atmosphere , great service and delicious food. Also, their supplier is Halal certified which means that finally we can go out for decent Halal steak in Joburg. I'm sure that we will be regulars.

“Great Food”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

Really good steaks at good prices. Sides were very good and a really big wine menu to boot. Staff were excellent. Did the tour of the kitchen which was a nice experience. If you want a good night out and a good red meat fix this place is a great choice.

“Most Disappointing”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

We went there as we had heard good reports, initially we were invited on a tour of the kitchen, everything seemed fine. Unfortunately when our food eventually arrived after a long wait the food was virtually inedible.
Recently i believe this restaurant was voted best steakhouse, i question the criteria utilised as l certainly will not be visiting again.
