We booked a table at the Fat Butcher having been recommended it by a local some months back and my husband was excited for a decent steak but sadly the meal didn't live up to expectations.
We were shown to our table and introduced to our waitress for the evening who was friendly but she didn't have a great understanding of the menu. My husband asked how long the ribs were cooked for, to which she answered 20 minutes. Not quite the answer he was expecting!
Our staters were a mixed bag. The squid was excellent but the mayo didn't taste lemony as described in the menu. The snails on the otherheand were essentially just cream and we really didn't enjoy it. My BBR burger was dissapointing. I asked for it without bacon and to be medium rare. It came with bacon and rare and the cheese hadn't melted at all. Needless to say I didn't enjoy it or finish it. My husband's steak (côte de bœuf) he said was OK but nothing special. We'll stick to our regular place when in Cape Town. A massive shame!
