The rib special was quite good, not every day you get spectacular ribs like in the old days. It's a bit crowded inside, but a few minutes in when you become settled, the atmosphere starts popping with joy and community.

This butcher cum restaurant had been recommended by the place we stayed in Cape Town. What we had was good, but given the big poster with Ribs standing in the street, we found it rather disappointing that on 3 consecutive nights they could not actually offer us this dish...

Hi Andrew!

Thank you for telling us your concern.
On Sunday we ran out of stock and on Monday we got a new supply, it may have been bad timing, we do apologize for you not being able to get this dish!

However, we can assure you we have stock and are serving our beef/pork ribs in store.
We hope to see you again soon at #thebutcherman.

105 Main Road, Greenpoint.

Had a perfect rump steak, cooked perfectly, incredibly tasty. I would just suggest to add a wine list and wines by the glass. Highly recommended to eat meat in CT. They sell also very good self produced bitlong and dewors.

So my gf and I decided we wanted to have a casual burger and it turned out to be anything but causal. We had the wagyu burger (i added cheese) and it was delicious, probably the best burger I had in cape town or one of the top 3.

We didn’t have a chance to eat their again but I would recommend this for a yummy burger or even ribs!
