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.

If you want to eat a good steak you find 3 big and popular addresses in Joburg, The butcher, Grillhouse Sandton and Rosebank and the Local Grill. The butcher is direct at the Nelson Mandela square in the heart of Sandton located and big, really big (assume more than 40 tables) and they are divided in seperate areas so you have a quite corner for your self. cool is that you can go on the butchery and see your steaks and other food and the atmosphere is quite cool as well. The staff is ok, sometimes a little bit busy, but in every case kindly and educated in terms of recommendations for food, steak choice and wines. the steak quality is good, but not so absolute famous like the popularity seems to show. but all in all a very good restaurant if you like to sit with >300 other guests in a big mass restaurant.

Overall its a very huge place with lots of variety of seating and bar. We were a group of 6 friends and enjoyed our drinks, food and courteous service. Location is the best in Nelson Mandela Square downtown Johannesberg.

Can't hardly do better for steak. Good ambience too. There are a lot of other restaurants around the same part of Sandton City but Butcher Shop would definitely be my first choice for good dinners.

If its meat you looking for ,STOP. the Butcher shop has it all. No i don't own the restaurant. The meat is always consistently great.
Not to mention the butchery where i only shop for meat or fish for the house.
Good service and excellent staff.
