Having always loved The Butchers Shop we had a very disappointing meal in January when in Cape Town (see review). We gave it another chance for a family meal before a wedding and it did not disappoint. Despite a largish group the food was excellent and our waiter managed the group very well. My confidence has been restored and will return when next down in Cape Town.

We started off on a bad note, as I had brought along some carefully chosen Shiraz for the adults to share while celebrating our son’s birthday. While being seated, we were told that corkage is not permitted, no matter what the occasion. This is one of very few establishments in Cape Town that take this approach, and is off putting for us locals given how many top restaurants we have to choose from. They do however have a huge and expensive wine selection, which is perhaps the reason.

We could not fault the food which was all excellent, in particular the beef fillet, ostrich fillet and salmon. My daughter was keen on a burger, but those aren’t served in the evenings. The overall price we felt was quite high if you added on some extras - my wife wanted creamed spinach which added on R50 and the bernaise sauce, another R40, coming to a total of R315 for a main course. My son’s ostrich fillet was especially good with the cranberry sauce and better value at R220.

Initial service was a bit slow, but once we’d ordered, the food came very quickly. Overall, we all had a great evening.

Took my family there including a very fussy 11 year old nephew. Staff were superb - great with the adults even better with the kids. The food was superb - we all had a variety of steaks and the waiters took the kids to the kitchen to choose theirs - nephew rarely eats meat - unfortunately for us his now favourite meal us Wagu Beef Steak! Wine list wonderful - with the exchange range and the quality of food, its the only place Brits should go! We went twice in our one weeks stay in Cape Town!

This is our 3rd or 4th time here over the years of visiting Cape Town. It never fails to deliver on food quality, service and overall happy dining experience. This time we already had 2 dinners but wanted a proper beef steak to share. So we had a 3rd mini dinner of beef and lamb riblets and a bottle of wine. So good to end the evening this way!
