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.

I was on my own in Greenpoint on business and went for dinner. Waiter.was very sharp and went over the menu briefly. I asked if I could look around. It's a strak house, butcher and they have awesome biltong. I had a delicous rib eye...and some biltong for take away. Will be backMore

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

Very friendly service, but the food is not good. The burger was overdone, and all the dressings were way too sweet. Hope it will get better!More

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.
