While they do list fish and other things I stuck to the beef that you would associate with a restaurant with a butchers shop attached and that proved to be a great decision. Absolutely wonderful, and cooked to perfection. I had a T bone steak - which you can no longer get in the UK and I don't know what... More

Had a excellent evening here with my wife. Service was excellent, food (steak) was superb and view and sunset as good as it gets as our table was at the window. Has an excellent wine list, but a shame that you can't bring your own wine as all can't always expect to be paying these prices for wine as it... More

Stayed in Mouille Point in Cape town in April 2017 and came across this place almost by accident. Looked good from the outside so we decided to give it a try. So glad we did, great selection of food/wine, and very pleasant surroundings/ambience. They do great steaks which are cooked to perfection, you can even chose the one you want.... More

I celebrated my birthday at the restaurant with close friends. The waiter was wonderful and capable of answering all our questions, he took the time to take us to the butcher, and showed us the meat on offer. The best rib eye I've had by far, it was perfectly prepared. Friends were pleased with their tbone and prime rib steaks... More

If you are a real man and you love meat, go to Butchers and choose your own big piece of meat. That's what it means to eat real steaks.

Great food fantastic waiters. A need to get to if you are hungry, portions are huge and menu selection fantastic. Not much for the kids to do but it is not the spur.

No surprises here. You want great steak, go to the top steak eatery in town. The menu is simple and basic, which means the food is expertly prepared.

Very good meat grilled to perfection! Service is nice and professional. Personally, I prefer the one in Joburg, but if like good meat you will not be disappointed!

Belated review for drinks only (March 2016). Stopped here for drinks and a sit down on a very hot day when walking back from the V&A waterfront to our guesthouse in Seapoint. Our waitron was called Fortune and I must say a more friendly waitron would be hard to find. (I hope waitron is correct). Next time we'll book a... More
