My wife and I won the lucky draw for a complimentary date night dinner special at Butler's after our previous visit. We were treated like royalty with our exclusive little dining area in a corner. The food was great, the service was perfect and the entire experience was absolutely worth it.
A year ago we stopped dining at Butlers because of poor service and average food. The change of management and new chef has drastically changed this restaurant around, I can recommend it strongly.
Our waiter Josh and manager Steve made our evening very special.

I have been to Butlers 3 times in the last two months & have been delightfully surprised by the excellence of their selection & quality of cuisine & service. Innovative recipies & attrative presentation along with reasonable portion sizes make this a culinary experience rather than just a meal. Service is well informed, polite & prompt.
So "I'll be Back"

Disappointing lunch today - this restaurant looks like it’s set up for fine dining but we didn’t get that experience. My duck was served cold. The breast pieces were very pink and would have been good if it was at least warm. The leg was way over cooked with soft gelatinous skin. This should have been crispy (and hot). In the description there should have been almonds but I couldn’t find any. The Falklands Calamari was also cold. My wife’s Prawn salad was “meh”. I called our waiter (who was very attentive) and told him and asked him specifically to inform management. Nobody came near us so the opportunity to salvage a customer was lost. Regrettably this was reflected in the tip when wasn’t his fault.

Had an wonderful time. The service and hosting was great. The food was so delish. Well done to Thulani, Mandla and the Head Chef who went out of his way to make me an awesome vegan starter and main meal. Highly recommend
