Definitely recommend the rump steak and fillet steak were stunning, it's pricey but worth it for a good steak. I would say it's the best steak I have had, cant fault the service it was first class.

Even during the week, dinner time is very busy and you better make a reservation if you want to secure a table. If you are alone you can eat at the bar getting an equally nice experience. The menu is a bit pricy for South...More

Great experience, selecting the meat at the butcher counter and then eating. Fine wine selection, great lamb starter, and the beef is of course the specialty.

Ate a shrimp appetizer and a steak here. I'm not much of a wine person, and the waiter helped me select a very good pinotage. Service and food were perfect. I did not have room for dessert. By US standrards, the price was a bargain...More

I have been here many times over the years. I was fonder of it in the past, it feels somewhat aloof these days. Nonetheless the food is excellent and service good. Steak is consistently great. Not as good as the Grill House or Wombles, but...More

Description
In the heart of Sandton, on Nelson Mandela Square, is the flagship Johannesburg branch of The Butcher Shop & Grill:
an institution in South African dining.

For over 20 years, our unmatchable steakhouse has been as much a part of SA culture as sunshine, red wine and red meat. You could say it is a landmark on the culinary landscape (and we're now in Cape Town and the Middle East). But The Butcher Shop is also about family - and the laughter, memories and conversations shared with special people over great food at a top steakhouse. Our family business, handed down over three generations, is famed for its quality produce, extensive menu, separate butchery & deli and 800 passionate staff globally.

In Johannesburg we're able to seat up to 600 guests, plus 22 guests in our exclusive private dining room. In Cape Town, we can accommodate 250 guests, with capacity for an additional 40 guests in our private dining room.
