We have had this restaurant on our must do list for years. We live in Scotland in Black Angus country, reputedly the home of great steak cattle. We still don't get the quality and flavour of the true great steaks served at the Butcher Block....More

This was a very mediocre meal. Staff were reasonably pleasant but the food was poor. Two of our steaks were very chewy and sinewy. One was poorly cooked. Our salad never turned up. This place needs a wake up!

Has to be the best lunch special in Umhlanga R59 with a large glass of wine. What more does one need. Also, has the best views of the shoreline in Durban. Highly recommended. Thanks Des, great service...

Went for a business dinner. Steak was reasonable without being top drawer. So a safe bet without being special.
