“Great meat but bad sauces”
Review of Red Ox Steakhouse

Red Ox Steakhouse
Ranked #2 of 35 Restaurants in Upington
Restaurant details
Reviewed 4 January 2024

We love the meat here (the lamb and the beef) but sometimes they spoil it with big quantities of fat / sweet and very thick sauces. Otherwise we love this place.

Excellent ambience and food and service! The skilpadjies, skaapstertjies, bone marrow fillet, burger and lamb curry were beyond belief!

My wife had the Malay lamb which she said was average at best
I had the double burger without a bun
One burger was ok and the other which was hidden under the top one and covered in avocado so I couldn’t see it was burned and dried out
Sad that the chef thinks that it’s Ok to send this out to his clients …. Shame on you buddy it sucked
Service was average
The double kalua had never seen a kalua and tasted like milk shakes
Beautiful view and venue and surviving because there is no where else to go in Upington
Oh and did I mention that the prices are top dollar 30 to 40% more than the northern suburbs of Johannesburg 👎

Lovely restaurant with good ambience and delightful decor.
Food was delicious and well cooked . The filet steak was moist and tender with a lovely Gorgonzola sauce , the rest of my family had equally good food . The steaks seem to be the highlight with various options available .
We did have a bad start as it was busy and we weren’t noticed but they certainly redeemed themselves with attentiveness and our waitress was lovely .
Overall a pleasant experience and I would definitely return if i go to Upington again.

We were recommended to visit Red Ox during our stay in Upington.

5* Interior - very well done
5* Staff friendliness
2* Staff competence due to poor / no training? Finally the manager saved our order!
3* Food - food was okay but the enormous portions were a turn off - clearly quantity over quality.
5* Free parking
