“Great Steak”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

A nice place with quality food and service, a bit full on a Saturday during INDABA, I had to wait 1h30 for my table that I reserved, but the food was great, affordable and service was professional. I'd return on my next visit to Durban

“Always Exceptional ”
Reviewed July 1, 2014 via mobile

Been here a few time whilst visiting Durban. Most probably the best Steak House in the world!!! Definitely better then any visited in the UK. Good sized portions, cooked to perfection. Excellent Prices.

“Just Excellent. you are sure to have a really good time at Butcher Boys”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

This is my second time in Durban and I would like to say that I will definitely come back for the third time.
Butcher Boys' service are so friendly. They make you comfortable so that you can have a really good time.
I had the cote de bœuf which is one of the recommended signature dish and as always it is divine,
The salads, if you want to go green, are really good. I would recommend the Greek salad and, of course, the billtong salad.
Wine selection is excellent as well as the dessert.
Just Excellent

“Amazing food!!”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

Food was great and not too expensive either. They didn't have anything vegetarian on the menu, but when asked they could suggest three options, which all sounded great. Definitely try this place out!

“Decent but unexciting steak house”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

We were looking for a good steak on Florida Road and found Butcher Boys. The service was very good and the décor fine. The food was perfectly okay but not memorable. Having spent the day on the road following Comrades it was disappointing to be faced with a salad covered in a creamy, dressing. My steak was okay but the ribs a bit small and spicy.
