Ordered delivery several times and enjoyed both the sirloin and rump steaks as well as the chicken kebabs. The portions are a little inconsistent and packaging is flimsy, but their food is very fresh, tasty and well prepared. Looking forward to actually visiting their store...for the full experience.More

If you like steak this is the place to go. Tremendous cuts of meats and great wine to go with it. Highly recommended and great value.

We had a meal at the butcher man on Monday 24th February, we were greeted by Glen who took us on a tour of the butcher shop to view what meats we could get. This in itself was unique and quite a good usp for...the restaurant. The food was cooked to perfection and the recommended wine was so good. Cant wait to return to Cape town to try again.More

Steaks for the wife, and succulent lamb loin chops for me. From medium to well done made a perfect crispiness to the lamb. Friendly service, low prices (compared to UK) and a nice salad to go with the meet. We only stayed in Cape Town...but guess where we ate eachy time. Ate at another restaurant down the coast and they had to hide their meat under a sauce whichwas certainly not neede at the Butchery. Congratulations, we are back in our country and although our visit was over a month ago we still talk about the high quality of cooking and meat.More

Hi Hazel, thank you for your awesome review! :) Great feedback!

Having read previous reviews, was expecting this to be one of my best steaks on this SA holiday. Was surprised no prices on the wine list. My wife had the wagu burger and that was excellent. I had the sirloin steak. Always expect fat on...the edges but this piece had fat within the meat to the extent I ended up eating most of it using my hands. Mentioned to the server I thought the piece of meat was poor and much too fatty, but I could have said anything cos he wasn’t bothered. Came away very disappointed cos I was expecting so much more.More

A quick stop for the most delicious biltong turned into a customer experience I will remember and convey. Hands full of grocery shopping, getting my order was fast and paying for it even faster. When I was done I turned around to get my bags,...someone was already holding it and ready to carry it for me. A simple example, but this is the perfect example how customer service is suppose to be. Friendly, sufficient, fast and attentive to the customer's needs. Well done The Butcher Man! can't wait to visit you again!More

Shopped here for some of the best steaks, ribs and chicken kebabs. Got our New Years Eve food here for the bar-b-que. Wonderful food and service.
