About
The Carne Collection has expanded to include the trendy Carne on Kloof which is bursting with popularity, as well as Carne Constantia, answering the need for an excellent steak in the Southern Suburb. The menu at both the Kloof and Constantia outlets bring a wide selection of classic Italian fare and introduce new meat alternatives to well-known 95 Keerom favourites such as tongue carpaccio and the signature slow baked lamb ravioli. Traditional dishes such as Bollito Misto, a rare north Italian speciality of mixed boiled meats, underlines the absolute authenticity of the menu. This coupled with Giorgio¿s commitment to using only the finest, freshest ingredients, serving vegetables especially grown for his restaurants. As much as each Carne signature restaurant proudly portrays its own visual identity, it is undeniably Georgio¿s personality, authenticity and insistence on the best that guarantees an elite hands-on eating experience.

We happened on this place by chance, as our first preference of restaurant was fully booked. Carne was also fully booked, but managed to fit us in with no fuss. Boy am I glad they did, as the whole experience was great! Kevin, our waiter was fantastic. He explained the menu to us, offered recommendations and was efficient at ensuring we had everything we needed - all with a smile!! I’d highly recommend Carne if you looking for a comfortable and modern restaurant for a hearty meal.

Grazie Giorgio and amazing staff. We had a great dinner and service. We were 5 so ordered 5 mains which we shared on a platter placed in the centre of the table. The flag ship undoubtedly was the Fiorentina (1.2kg for 2). We added a mix of sides all delicious. The meat cooked to perfection on the rare side of medium/rare. Great evening before rushing off to make the 9pm curfew. A presto Stefano

Family made a reservation, but not needed on a weeknight. We had a very enjoyable meal - steak was very good, and homemade pasta also, but maybe a bit too heavy cream sauce. Owner came around with sample beforehand. Waitstaff attentive enough, although I was somewhat uncomfortable with one man who I noticed kept staring at a woman who was with her date. He was just standing behind the bar staring so intensely and for so long at her while she was in conversation - that I was uncomfortable for her! I can only say I don´t think he realized he was doing it. We would return. Lastly, the gelato was very good!

It is the WORST steak house I have ever been and I have been to many, anything will be obviously way better choice then this and here is why: 1/ Service. Not existed. Waiters hardly speak English. No bread, no forks after food arrived, forgot our water, no salt or pepper (reminded 5 times), after food arrived NO FORKS! after food was finished - they brought us sauces!!! At the end of the meal waiter asked us why we did not left him tip !!! 2/ No game meat and we came for it. Half of the things advertised on the menu not existed. 3/ Food - below average. if not worse. Meat arrived cold and I am not the first writing this complaint here about it. You can definitely can get a better steak at a street market. 4/ Spent about 120 USD on a meal for 2 people and I feel totally crooked, this restaurant deserves to be bankrupt and closed. 5/ If it was in the US, management would be paying for your dinner for such f. up. I definitely will take it further on all the services possible to put this 'nice' place out of business. Would put zero star, can't, putting 1 - too much for this sham. Avoid if you can, Cape Town has many great restaurants and some worst ones, Carne Kloof is the WORST YOU CAN GET!

Dear client you arrive one hour later , we accommodate you with a big smile, , you had the best waiters (not that you deserve) he speak very good english , all food menu was available, including game meat,,cutlery and contiment were on the table, after you receive your order at the table you ask for sauce that obviously arrive minute after, (we not mcdonald where probably you belong) you can even spend 1000 USD if you order expensive wine, your wife come to excuse your behaving 2 time, you did pay, you left a tip that no one ask for and finally you left , I am in business since 20 year in cape town and the reputation of the restaurant is bigger than your small comment , make sure to don't forget any social media platform so than anyone can read your comment and smile like i do since i read your crazy personal vendetta for a reason that i do not know,

This restaurant has lost its way.... Despite its somewhat upmarket, chic steakhouse appearance, the meat just don’t measure up. Worse still were the sides. Now I know meat is their forté, but the side-salad was a poorly presented joke (see pic below), and the thin fries had clearly been sitting around for ages. R40 for a bunch of leaves and few cherry tomatoes, just thrown together without a care, isn’t worth it. The next day at the Ocean basket, I received a proper side salad. Carne should be embarrassed about this, but the manager and waiter dismissed it as normal. There is a sense of arrogance about this place, yet the biggest problem, is that the chef has clearly lost his/her passion, and is just throwing stuff together without much attention. It’s the sign of a place that has done very well for itself in the beginning, then coasted along as a result, and now appears to not give a real damn anymore - as long as bookings keep coming in based on past performance. It’s a shame. There are many other places worth visiting, and we certainly won’t go back again.

This place came highly recommended and I was looking forward to an explosion in my mouth. The food was very underwhelming. I turned back my steak after it was served well done as oppose to my oredered preference of medium. Steak is not memorable, I can get better flavour and consistency on my frying pan at home. Do your self a favour by sticking to a reputable steakhouse if you are into red meat.

The outstanding dish for me was the lamb ravioli - it was excellent. For me skirt steak was too chewy and underdone for medium - however my husband really enjoyed it and our friend loved his sirloin. The smashed potatoes were very yummy. The restaurant is pretty small so be prepared for it to be noisy when full and the windows closed. We sat outside on the terrace and I had a great view down Kloof Street to the waterfront.

My partner and I were looking for a place for dinner. Other restaurants were fully booked and accidentally we went to ask if they have a table without any reservation. We got one and since we set at the table our restaurant attendant, Kevin introduced himself and we know we are in good hands from the beginning. Kevin’s outstanding personality, great knowledge about each dish on the menu, and his excellent manners made us very comfortable and relaxed. We had starters, main course and we shared the dessert, (my favourite Tiramisu). Each meal was divine and also wine. Very busy restaurant and great service other guys make this restaurant fine dining spot. Compliments to the chef also. It was our last night stay in CPT but we can defo recommend this place for local and tourists. I wish we could come back again soon.

Worst steak in Cape Town. We went with high expectations and we were sorely let down we ordered a steak on the bone medium rare and it came out well done and when we complained the guy in charge rudely came over and told us it is medium rare but the hot plate cooked it even though the plate was made of porcelain. We didn’t argue as his manor was embarrassing and paid and left. Just to be clear the Carne we went to was not Kloof but Keerom

Giorgio is without doubt a culinary genius chef. The ravioli with lamb is world class. The aged sirloin beautifully cut up is one of the greatest most flavoursome steaks you will ever have. Better pasta than you will find in Italy - Giorgio won the Italian Pasta making championships in Milan. This is a dining experience not to be missed at any cost.

We dined on a very busy Monday night. The atmosphere was electric and the service chaotic. The proprietor/chef was front of house trying to accommodate everyone. This worked well until one diner became very demanding and aggressive. In the end, we were glad to escape. This Cape Town scene is a bit too “exciting “ for an old man like me!🤷🏼‍♂️

Superb - absolutely stunning food, excellent wine. The range of breads which arrived at the start of the meal was fascinating, the steak excellent, and the molten chocolate dessert the best we’ve ever had. Would recommend to anyone who loves steak. If we are ever in Cape Town again we will definitely return here.

We first visited here 6years ago and loved it. Always worried when you go back that things have changed. But no again one of the best meals we had on our trip. For meat lovers like me the food was wonderful but even my veggie wife said some of the best veggie food she had. A must if you have a while in Capetown

My partner and I came for dinner and enjoyed the food. Portions could have been a little larger but otherwise the food was top quality. Even though it is Italian, it feels more like a South African steakhouse with a finer twist.

Tasty steaks and lamb which were perfectly cooked and seasoned. The menu is very nice and simple and they had good cocktail options. Wait staff could have been more attentive but overall a good experience for a weekday dinner.
