“Only for meat lovers and gluttons.”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

The Carnivore is a copy of the restaurant started in Nigeria by the same owners.
It is a meat lovers paradise.
Other than the standard chicken, beef, lamb, pork etc., they have a variety of other game, it changes on a daily basis, ranging from buck to elephant, crocodile, giraffe and more.
The waiters bring the meat on huge skewers and cut the meat off onto your plate.
They keep coming until you give up and indicate that by lowering the flag on your table which signifies to the staff that you are beaten and cowered.
About 30 kms/ 22 miles from Johannesburg.
Definitely worth a visit.

“So Much Meat!!”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

South Africans enjoys the statistic that claims they are the world's second highest consumer of meat! For them, Carnivore is like eating at home, but in a restaurant. I have eaten many times in homes and had four or more meats at the backyard Braai. At Carnivore, the sum goes up to around 12 meat offerings all night. I had zebra, kudu, crocodile, pork, beef, chicken, and quite a number of other meats. All were prepared wonderfully and delicious. Although I admit I wanted to eat salads for the rest of the week. In our party there were two vegetarians and remarkably, Carnivore had a selection of non-meat item that brought the remark from one of our party that this was the best vegetarian meal they had eaten thus far on our trip. Our visit to Carnivore was part of the overall plan by Craig Duffield of Mosaic Tourism (I have also reviewed them) and just another excellent part of a perfect group trip. The 26 of us were treated well at Carnivore and would go back in a minute!

“Give me meat”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

Any restaurant called 'Carnivore' is bound to send any vegetarian running for cover. Sliced animals is spicy sauces, diced antelope, minced wart hog, sauteed springbok. What's not to like? Can't wait to eat there.

Its a great place to try out wild animal meat which by the way has such interesting flavours that no one can describe to you, you just got to try it out yourself!!! Go with an open mind!
