We had an amazing night here doing The Beef Appreciation. Most of the night was in the kitchen and it was not just a dinner but a complete evening experience. If you are at all a steak eater make time for this dining option!

The good is gold standard for sure. If it's meat you want then this is the place to get it and more. The deserts are stunning, try the home made cookies and cream ice cream.

I had a good evening with my son enjoying refreshing service and very good steak. The steak ageing tour was especially surprising and informative

We had the grass fed rumps which were perfectly cooked and very tasty. The variety of sides offered were good and the Bernaise sauce very tasty. Worth a repeat visit.

My favorite in Johannesburg. Good quality meat, personalized service. And always something special to offer on meat sourced somewhere, a different cut.

A large range of steaks, grass fed, grain fed, dry aged, wet aged. I like the Lamb Shank (a lot of my colleagues had food envy). They do a meat 'tour', so you can taste the various cuts of 'biltong' style meats and get a...More

Having spent a lot of time in Joburg this was quite simply the best steak I have had in the city. Nothing exceptional, or poor about the wider menu or service but the steak made the difference.

I have been coming to this restaurant for almost 10 years, and in all that time, I have never had a disappointing or even average meal there! The chef understands the difference between blue, rare and medium rare steak, and cooks the meat on point....More
