We ate in Butcher boys on the first night of our 4 night stay in Durban and then returned on the last night. Nobody had anything other than a fantastic meal either day and the Prime Rib was easily the best steak i've ever had anywhere! Can't recommend this place highly enough!

Starter of carpaccio: better than carpaccio, they should really invent a new name. Ostrich fillet with red wine and cranberry sauce: perfect, cooked exactly medium to rare and the sauce complements; veggies side: perfectly cooked. Definitely recommended. (sit inside to escape the humidity)

Ive rediscovered Butcher Boys on Florida road after years of looking elsewhere for a great fillet.

I like that the owner (Alan) has been there managing the floor on the last two occasions. The waiters do there jobs well enough, it is a very easy menu to choose from. I have the fillet med rare with the Avo and Dijon mustard and sauce. Its really good.

My fellow patrons seemed to enjoy there meals.

We were a table of 5 adults and 1 six year old. The children's menu was great and they didn't skimp on the quality just because it was for a child. A very fussy 6 year thoroughly enjoyed his chicken schnitzel and that was a thumbs up. The steaks were cooked to perfection and I had a sirloin which had a bit more gristle than I would have preferred. My wife had the pork spare ribs which she felt were to sweet in the basting but was gobbled up by everyone else. Guess that just boils down to personal taste. The star attraction was the staff. Attentive, speedy and efficient. The table never had dirty plates and all the staff pitched in irrespective of whose table we were. It was also the only restuarant in Durban where someone (in this case the manager) helped us down the stairs with the pushcart. We will definitely be back and our German guest will tell everyone of the ostrich that she had. Highly recommended evening but book to avoid disappointment.

We visited butcher boys on a busy night and were seated inside. I had a rump steak with mushroom and red wine sauce. The steak was full flavoured and tender, whereas the mushroom sauce was a bit bland. It was a busy night and we had very bad service from our waiter who seemed to have been attending to more tables than he could handle. The restaurant is big so it was quite loud which affected conversation. They do have serious beef though, so one trades-off the service and ambiance with this one for a good steak.
