I was hoping to have some game meat here, but they only have that at the other Carne restaurant (on Kleerom I think). The website menu is not correct. At any rate, the wine and steak were both tasty and the service was top notch.

We had fillet steak medallions and lamb chops. Cooked to perfection and truly delicious. Warm and friendly atmosphere. Reasonably priced. Highly recommended.

I cannot thank our agent enough for recommending Carne on Kloof to us. The selection of fresh meats, and not to mention their superior quality was second to none. I wish we didn't get there until our last night in Cape Town!

A hidden gem in Kloof Street. Great food and great service. Great quality is standard in this restaurant - expect nothing less - go for the Picanha and Chips for a great taste and lingering memory.
