This restaurant is located in a prime location and was extremely convenient. We ordered sirloin steak and burgers. R159 for a tasteless minute steak. It was tough and really wasn't made with any effort. The burger pattys flavours tasted artificial, the meat was of extremely...bad quality. I Feel bad posting this but its embarrassing as a local eating this quality of food knowing that it's been eaten by our tourists. Please improve your quality of meat and the way you prepare it. It's a sin to present your customers with such food.More

I guess I expected to have my steak cooked correctly here... I ordered it Medium Rare, it came well done. Service was great, food was good, simple... perhaps they had a new cook? perhaps an off night? I was underwhelmed but prices were reasonable for...what it was. I tried to get a side of ribs, that wasn't possible but I could get a side of steak.. also surprised I wasn't offered a wine or drink menu.More

Just amazing. Stuff, owner and food is really great. Best steak I've ever had. And also the wine is perfect and goes so well with the meat.

Service was excellent and friendly staff. Not one of us finished our meal. Steak wasn’t aged and was like old leather. The burger looked and tasted like processed meat. Will not be back.

Not the usual frill and linen table clothes but very clean friendly and gorgeous food. Staff were very attentive and professional. Great cuts of meat that you can see and pick in the chiller cabinet. Meat cooked to perfection with sides and sauces of your...choice. Nice wine at reasonable prices.More

My son had seen giant steaks advertised, although they were no longer on the menu. No problem, they cut him a 700g rump steak and cooked it to perfection. I had the Chalmar rib eye which was absolutely perfect. Tender, medium rare, perfectly seared on...both sides. Best steak I can remember having. With some good wine. The idea of eating at the front end of a butcher shop is quite unique but works so well. Small restaurant section, no luxury or any bells and whistles, just fantastic food and service. There were quite a few other guests, so ambiance was just fine.More

Really lovely steak. Incredibly flavoursome. Slightly over cooked, but a good variety of meats. Good place for chilling and people watching at the front too. Nice wines to pair with it. Best part were the friendly and very helpful staff

We make sure to visit here every time we are in Cape Town. The staff are really friendly, welcoming and attentive. The steak and fries are delicious and they have a nice wine selection too. They also run some great winter specials.

Although we heard reviews about the lack of atmosphere, we went there. It is true, this is not a fancy dining restaurant, but still comfortable and cosy. The steaks were of superb quality, burgers too, and the service was great - and if you like...it, you can buy some more steaks sealed in the butchery.More

I first visited this restaurant over 5 years ago and have made sure to visit at least once every time I have made it back to Cape Town. The food remains great especially the steaks. The menu is simple with a choice of sweet potato...fries, shoestring fries or a side salad as sides. The place was quiet but this has been the case with most places we have eaten in this trip. Every single member of staff was friendly and helpful.More
