Description: In the heart of Sandton, on Nelson Mandela Square, is the flagship Johannesburg branch of The Butcher Shop & Grill: an institution in South African dining. For over 20 years, our unmatchable steakhouse has been as much a part of SA culture as sunshine, red wine and red meat. You could say it is a landmark on the culinary landscape (and we're now in Cape Town and the Middle East). But The Butcher Shop is also about family - and the laughter, memories and conversations shared with special people over great food at a top steakhouse. Our family business, handed down over three generations, is famed for its quality produce, extensive menu, separate butchery & deli and 800 passionate staff globally. In Johannesburg we're able to seat up to 600 guests, plus 22 guests in our exclusive private dining room. In Cape Town, we can accommodate 250 guests, with capacity for an additional 40 guests in our private dining room.

This restaurant is situated in Nelson Mandela square, adjacent to Sandton City mall. The tables look out onto the square. I had a sirloin steak and my friend had Roast Lamb. Both meals were gorgeous. My steak was cooked to perfection and was so tender. Food was very reasonable, not paying more than £20 per head for our main/drinks.

I went to Butchers Shop and Grill during my short stay in Joburg. It was recommended by locals. Very briefly: Amazing meat and fabulous selection of wines. Very good service.

We had a spare night in Johannesburg before returning home to Australia. We both chose the eland fillet and it was scrumptious. Couple that with a nice bottle of Shiraz and you have a winning combination. Very good service, good food and a very reasonable bill.
Will be visit here again. Yes of course we will

I was in Johanesberg for a business meeting, and was taken to The Butcher Shop in Sandton. Didn't know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. It does have a feeling of a Butcher shop in the way it is decorated, though the place is very big. The food was excellent and the service impeccable. Most of us (we were a party of 12) took either rib-eye, rack of lamb or combos, but a couple of us took fish and even a plate with a mix of fish and meat! Everything was perfectly cooked. A very enjoyable experience. The cost when compared to Europe was excellent. Worth every rand!
