Description: In the heart of Sandton, on Nelson Mandela Square, is the flagship Johannesburg branch of The Butcher Shop & Grill: an institution in South African dining. For over 20 years, our unmatchable steakhouse has been as much a part of SA culture as sunshine, red wine and red meat. You could say it is a landmark on the culinary landscape (and we're now in Cape Town and the Middle East). But The Butcher Shop is also about family - and the laughter, memories and conversations shared with special people over great food at a top steakhouse. Our family business, handed down over three generations, is famed for its quality produce, extensive menu, separate butchery & deli and 800 passionate staff globally. In Johannesburg we're able to seat up to 600 guests, plus 22 guests in our exclusive private dining room. In Cape Town, we can accommodate 250 guests, with capacity for an additional 40 guests in our private dining room.

Always a good meal at the butcher shop. Rib eye is probably the best along with the lamb shank which is extremely tender. Some times the service is slow especially when the place is full

We frequent butcher shop regularly do book before hand as despite the size it always is busy and tables hard to come by. The rib eye is delicious with side of baked potato and sour cream. The wait staff are excellent and service is v good. They give you boerwors (Sa sausage) in tomato sauce to snack on which is good.

Turned up with no reservation, prepared to wait, within 5mins we were seated at he front of the restaurant overlooking Mandela square.
Staff were cheery, attentive, very good at what they do.
Food was fabulous. Steaks were cooked perfectly and portions were generous. Baked mushroom starter and hallouomi starter were also big portions, maybe one between two would be enough.
Wine list extensive also.
Would def return here. Vibe was great

Good quality good, especially if you’re a meat lover like me. But the food isn’t cheap. Good for business outings and occasions.
