Living up to their name, this established restaurant in a less than desirable neighborhood has offered the best steak that this reviewer has ever had. The wine list is extremely extensive and our knowledgeable waiter, Linton was able to recommend a perfect wine to go with our T-bone Fiorentina. I cannot wait to be back.

We were here for dinner. This had been recommended by locals as the best steakhouse in Cape Town; however our experience re food was poor. We had appetizers, steak and dessert. Their signature cut is the prime rib on bone, which the waiter insisted us on trying. I did take on his recommendation. My companions had a rib eye. My... More

Great beef selection and begun with the waiter brining a tray showcasing all the cuts of beef and telling you all about each cut from a flavour and texture perspective. Florentine steak for two was wonderful. Only drawback is a slightly dodgy location and the restaurant is not well labelled externally.

This is a great place to have first class meat. The service is great and what is best that before you order they come by and show you on a plate all the different meat they have.

Although I'm a South African we were a table of six and the people at the table were speaking German. The meat was presented as normally on the tray and then the waiter presented the specialities of the evening. When asked what the T-bone on the speciality tray cost, the waiter answered " I don't know I'll have to find... More

We went for dinner on a Tuesday. We decided on the Steenberg wine which was lovely. We wanted to order another bottle but we were told that they were out of stock. They gave us a bottle of Stellenzicht at the same price, the bottle was not on the menu, the wine was not great though. The starters were really... More

This restaurant was recommended to me when my first choice had no seats available. very good advise indeed. Steaks are the signature dish. Beef is aged in-house and a tableau with selections is presented at your table by the waiting staff. Excellent wine list. Very pleasant atmosphere and friendly staff. Alternative dishes are available however don't go her if you... More

We tried both Carne restaurants but Carne on Keerom was one of our favoritere staurants in Cape Town. Staffs are friendly here. And they literally have the best steak in town! Appetizers and desserts are also great. Vanilla icecream with lemon olive oil is a must try!

We were at Carne for Dinner, good selection of red wine at reasonable prices. The selection of meat cuts they had were outstanding. We were also fortunate to have a waiter who was passionate about what he did. They bought a tray of meat to us and explained each cut, which was an interesting experience. This may not be palatable... More

We were 4 for dinner.The steaks were aged perfectly and well presented.Chocolate fondant exceptional. The attitude of the waiter however was brusque and patronizing and spoilt the experience.
