Good, reasonably priced food in Mandela Square served by friendly, helpful staff. What more could you ask for ?

The steaks, and other dishes, are as good as you'll find anywhere. Remember, South African beef is grass fed and therefore has much less fat than U.S. beef.

This was a walk in by my family 11 of us 4 yrs to 64 yrs so a good mixture of tastes. Our son-in-law comes to Sandton on business several times a year and wanted us to experience the food. We were seated very quickly...More

Pitched up on my own since I’m here on biz. Got a table for one immediately with no problem, unlike another close-by place that shall remain nameless. Nice plate of gravad lax to kick off, then a medium-rare peppered rib-eye with mushrooms and a baked...More

In Mandela Square, this place is fabulous. The appetizer with sliced sausage is so delicious. We had to keep reminding ourselves not to eat too much of it as we had a main course coming. The steak was so tender, probably the best we’ve ever...More

Experience the fusion of Anglo-Asian-African cuisine at this magnificent restaurant. We were last here just before the World Cup in 2010 and my husband and I couldn't miss sampling the good food again even though our schedule was tight. The service is excellent and so...More

I came here with a group of 4 people for dinner since it was near our hotel. We ordered the Mozambican prawn fiesta (1kg portion - 12 prawns), 3 kinds of steak (T-bone, prime rib, and sirloin), and the wild game of the day (kudu)....More

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.
