The best Ribeye steak I had in a long time. Perfectly prepared as ordered. The service was excellent, the atmosphere brilliant. If you are in Upington, you have to eat at The Red Ox.

We enjoyed a nice romantic dinner one evening at the Red Ox. It has a great view over the river. We were serve quickly and the staff was friendly.

The food was amazing, but the service is very poor. Waited very long just for drinks and had to ask for a waiter to clear the table.

Every local we asked recommended Red Ox Steakhouse, even for non-meat eaters.
Contrary to expectations there were some excellent non-meat options incl. pasta and an excellent Kingclip fish with rice. The location is stunning overlooking the Orange River from the best position in Upington. Service was fabulous and highly attentive - Red Ox Steakhouse is THE best restaurant in Upington and offers a superb wine list.

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.
