Tried this restaurant last night - was supposed to be half price ladies night. The bill came to R300 each for a 200g steak, 1 glass of wine and a coffee - for a half price special this seemed expensive

Thank Alison S
Robynne S, Public Relations Manager at Butcher Block, responded to this reviewResponded 15 August 2018

Dear Alison, the half price only applies to the main course but the bill does seem high for one person. Are you able to send me a copy of your bill to robynne@butcherblock.co.za so that I can follow up?

Bad service and less than average food. Unfriendly waitress with no knowledge of the menu or what is meant to be done. This visit was a waste of time and money. I will not recommend.
