My friend and I arrived and the service was great from the get go. We had lovely wine. For starters we had halloumi and calamari which was delicious. The waiter suggested the local steak and we were not disappointed. For dessert we had creme brûlée which is one of the best I have ever had. Overall, every staff member was... More

Well, this is a meat lovers heaven, the choice at the counter was fantastic and the flavour was great too. The sides were very good and the service brilliant too. Meat lovers will enjoy.

tip one - many restaurants are closed on Sunday nights in Cape Town. So choosing and booking in advance is sensible. Taking into account the reviews on TA and with limited options close by to us we managed to get a cancellation on what was a busy and almost full restaurant. We were a tad apprehensive as my wife does... More

The Butcher Shop and Grill was recommended to my husband and I by our hotel (the excellent Blackheath Lodge) for our final night in Cape Town and it was probably the best meal we had in the whole 2 week holiday! We walked down to the sea front establishment opposite the lighthouse and were warmly welcomed and taken to our... More

Friends recommended it for sunset time. I arrived early..walked along the Promenade. Beautiful. Got a window table. Terrific waiter. Ostrich was to die for. Also fresh bread, asparagus, delicious SA Sauvignon Blanc. Tiramisu was outstanding Photographed the clouds during sunset. Spectacular. Best meal in whole two weeks. $ 45.92 including 30% tip. Also in Joburg and Dubai.

The good - the red pinotage wine was relatively inexpensive and good value. My fillet steak was very good to excellent. My creme brûlée was also good. The bad -... More
