Food: the first cut, to our suprise was from a Fish, wich did not taste good at all, as for the rest, it had various quality, with some cuts actually was raw meat, after the outer layer was carved off, and it should have been...taken back for some more cooking. The drink services was bad, as drink ended up to other guests. Staff, was in a state of hostile, as we all as a group, was treated as a uncommon need for them.More

We went as a family of 5 and all 5 of us were thoroughly impressed. My personal favorites were the Kudu wors and zebra. The crocodile was also very interesting. Great service, great food and good vibes. 10/10 recommend for meat lovers especially.

We were a group of golfers and visited in Jan 2023 this acclaimed meat eater's place. The place is fine, a bit kitschy but enjoyable. Service was ok. The food - well, you expect a juicy piece of meat but you get : whatever you...eat (chicken, crocodile, kudu, springbock...) it was rather dry and tasted the same. The offered souces did not help the fact that the meat was dry and tastless. We left the place disappointed.More

Overally the food and drinks were good. I enjoyed the crocodile and the zebra and the kudu meatballs, venison briyani and venison samoosas and pork sausages We managed to get about 2 rounds of everything on the menu except the beef, pork. I was looking...forward to having a good big share of pork ribs but they came round once with the ribs and was told I could only get three small ones then I had to ask the waiters a couple of times later that we wanted more ribs which they only brought a second time then that was that. That's my only negative. The waiters were nice so overall a nice experienceMore

My sister booked a table for 15 at Carnivore to celebrate my nephew's 21st birthday. We had an unpleasant experience with regards to the service we received. Bad, bad attitude. I have never experienced such. The waiters serving the meat were in a huge hurry...and were outright rude. One of the guests gave a thumbs up sign when offered meat and was rudely told that meant she doesn't want the meat served and was confusing the waiter. Needless to say she was dumbfounded as no one had explained the required etiquette. I suspect we became invisible because at some point the waiters decided to ignore our table. Although our table was the first when they entered the dining room, they skipped it and served the other tables. We went for almost an hour without service. Our table didn't have a flag. We thought this was the problem and asked our waitress to bring one half way through the meal. However, having the flag up didn't make any difference. "All you can eat" is a lie. Portions and what you are offered, is tightly controlled by the waiters. When we asked for whatever meat was being served at other tables, we were either told the waiter was coming or whatever was being served was finished. We were not offered the venison biryani, beef and pork, let alone second helpings of the other meats. We only got these after raising our displeasure with our waitress. In the end she served us with meat. She tried to make up for her colleagues' behavior. Apart from the soup, no explanations were given as to the courses being served. As a result, we were surprised when desert was offered while some in our group were still hungry. Some dishes on the menu were not served and no explanation was given. My niece asked for the vegetarian option. See attached pics of what she got. Really!!!!!! Not anywhere close to what was on the vegetarian menu. I am writing this in the hope that no one will be treated like this ever again.More

False advertising. It's not all you can eat. They restrict you by taking forever to bring you food, then they tell you that the food is finished when you ask for it. If you're going for supposed bottomless ribs, don't waste your time. They strategically...restrict those. The vegetarian menu was incomplete. No fish. No chicken livers. No eland.More
