The Butcher Man is not yet licensed for wine service but they sell wine from a shop with a decent, small selection, that is open until 6 pm. We stopped by in the morning to select and pay for our wine while also making a reservation. They kept the wine while we did our day of sight seeing. We arrived back for dinner about 7 pm, selected our steaks and indicated how we wanted it cooked and with sides of either salad, fries or both. Sides were a nominal charge of R15 each. The meat is purchased from the butcher shop and for R30, they do the cooking. Service is quick, as were the meals as there were few other patrons. The steaks were delicious... Very high quality meat and cooked to perfection. This is really not a place to linger over dinner so we were in and out in about an hour. We all enjoyed the food and the experience.

We went 2 times to butcher man with the kids during our short stay in Cape town last April. It is actually a butcher shop with a brai corner and few rustic tables where you can eat the meat freshly cooked in front of you, that you chose yourself in the shop. Waitresses are adorable, butchers and cookers do a terrific job all together in a very friendly atmosphere. Price are also excellent. Highly recommended if you feel carnivorous.

We were pining for a braai during our stay in CT and discovered this place one evening as we drove by. The meat was braai'd to perfection, the salad and fries delicious. It definitely satisfied our craving! Their biltong is also good.

Best quality and price for game biltong which is our choice. Good selection of meat and processed products. We get first class service all the time.

We went to the Butcherman in December last year, after a good review from my parents. However, we as a family were extremely disappointed. I had emailed them with this exact comment, they replied saying that the owner would respond but three months later we have still not heard back.

Understandably it was a busy weekend with the 7s Rugby Tournament but service was incredibly poor. We understand that we could not reserve seats so we waited for a table to clear and the waitron confirmed that we may have the table when the other patrons had left. That being said we waited and instead a couple, who had asked us if we were waiting, then proceeded to take our table. I understand that rude and intolerable patrons are not your concern, however there was a clear lack of management. And instead of causing a scene and ruining what we had hoped would be a good meal and an enjoyable time we left.

We then took our food as take-aways and after asking the waitron if all our food was there-- and named everything we had ordered, the waitron confirmed that our order was correct and accounted for. Only after we had walked to the park and opened the parcel did we discover that 3 of our meals were missing. The meals were on the receipt, we then walked back only to find out that for whatever reason our orders hadn't gone through and we had to wait for the rest of our food to be made.

In addition to poor service and incomplete orders we then discovered the second time around that the burgers we had ordered and paid for were incorrect. We received 2 beef burgers as opposed to the Butcher Man burgers, which we had ordered and paid for.

Again, we understand that being a busy weekend things can be rather chaotic but this does not excuse poor management or service. Restaurants such as yourself should be better prepared for occasions such as these. I hope that in the future issues such as these will be resolved.
