This sanctuary for meat lovers serve the best grain fed beef South Africa has to offer and our wet & dry aging process results in exceptional quality and texture. Our in house butcheries will cut to your preference whether it be lean or with a little fat or of a particular weight or thickness. Our unique temperature controlled wine cellars proudly house a diverse selection of indigenous vintage estate wines from the fairest Cape and surrounds.

If steak is your thing, this restaurant is a good option. My husband loves his red meat and he likes the Butcher Boys' fare. We sat on the enclosed outside seating area, lovely in the warm autumn Durban air. It is non-smoking. Just a pity about the inconsiderate patron who was on her cell phone. She left her own table, leaned over the balcony, and proceeded to talk loudly for well over 10 minutes - intrusive and inconsiderate. We asked the management to intervene, but they did nothing.
Parking is difficult on Florida Road, so ideally come by cab, or be prepared to walk a bit.

Over-pricy steaks with additional costs for side dishes. Not good value and lousy vibe

Our friends had tried this restaurant last week and loved the steak and raved about how tender it was. The food was really good (I had butternut chicken). The service was great and atmosphere was pleasant.
