First thing was the welcome, warm and friendly on a cold evening.

Service great, we were there for meat and wine so we could not have come to a better place.

Superb menu, Italian rather than pure steakhouse, but a large grill menu.

Indulged in sweetbreads, lamb ravioli and a sirloin washed down with great reds.

If I lived anywhere near Cape Town I would definitely return...

We ate here last year on our annual visit to Cape Town and, again, very good food and ambiance. The rump was a little tough, but my wife loved the filet! Overall, very solid.

We were recommended this restaurant to try a variety of local meats on offer. The meanu was vast, the waiting staff very helpful and courteous. We were able to see all of the meat and cuts of meat before deciding what to order. The quality and the value and the rd wene recommended to accompany the meat were all amazing.

If you love meats, this is the place to go. My friends and I were introduced to this place by a family of locals. They highly recommended this place to us, and having dined there, I can fully understand why. The atmosphere is good, the service is wonderful, and the food is absolutely amazing.

After being seated, our waiter asked if it's our first time. We said yes, and he proceeded to bring out a huge platter of meats available on the menu. It was an eye opener. He was friendly and knowledgeable about the meats and the items on the menu. The wait time was about 20mins, and boy was it worth it. The meats were juicy and tasty. Portions were huge. One of our orders weren't cooked to our liking: medium-well, instead of medium-rare. When asked, our waiter agreed it's a mistake, but we weren't too fussy, and continued eating.

The must-haves are the marrow, and the ravioli. Absolutely delicious. I would say that all the meats are amazing, so just take your pick on what you prefer.

We went to Carne at Keerom Street and were informed that this is their flagship restaurant in Cape Town. Carne was recommended highly to us by another South African family we met at Gondwana Safari.

The starters we ordered were amazing. I would recommend the Ravioli and Bone Marrow. The Veal Tongue Carpaccio was good but paled in comparison with the other starters.

As for the mains, your server will bring out a tray to show you what meats are available for the day. The cuts were huge. Two of our group shared the 1.2kg sirloin, one had the 600g sirloin on the bone and the remaining two had the beef prime rib on the bone. We also shared the safari - consisting of ostrich, kudu, black wildebeest, impala and blesbok.

While the starters were amazing, the mains fell short of the same standard. Perhaps it was because of the thick cuts of all the meats and some of our orders of medium rare came up slightly rare (not complaining) while one of us had hers medium well instead (definitely complaining). The game meats were also interesting but perhaps not suited to our palette. Overall an extremely gratifying experience that left us quite done with meat for say 1-2 days.

The wines were also reasonably priced and we were happy with the recommended pinotage for R280.

Would recommend this place for a nice night out for couples, friends or business meetings.
