Butcher Shop & Grill (The)
The floors here are coated with sawdust in the spirit of a traditional butcher shop, but heavy wooden furnishings give this steakhouse a clubby feel. Diners sit surrounded by an estimated ZAR1.5 million worth of wine stacked about the restaurant. All available cuts are displayed in the central butchery, an indication that this restaurant is truly serious about meat. The menu features grain-fed South African beef and more unusual game meats, all aged under controlled conditions in onsite cold rooms. Children under the age of 14 years are not allowed.
After years of being out of the country, we were looking forward to the great steaks we remembered at The Butcher Shop. This is the opinions of five patrons who ate at multiple steakhouses during our stay from JUne -AUgust 2010-
The steaks at the grill house were disappointing in terms of quality , flavor and value.
The service was good, food was average , ambience ok, value poor.
Nice place for a dinner or lunch. The food was excellent with a unique taste. Of course order only steaks.
The cellar guard is an good and kind guy worth thw visit. You will find the best options of South African wines, don't forget to try the pinotage.
A meat eaters restaurant with a wide selection of meat dishes and local side dishes. Excellent service. May need to book for an evening meal, lunch time is less busy. Also a large selection of wine, try something local. I recommend the venison, especially the ostrich medallions. Best for long lazy lunches or dinners, prepare to spend some time there.
All starters are ZAR 40.00 - 70.00. Watch out for SQ pricing on menu though - you will pay R480.00 for a prawn starter - more than tripple the price of any main meal on the menu. It borders on unethical and is totaly rediculous compared to South African prices. The negative comments about arrogance of management and service fees not correct on this website was also experienced when addressing this matter
Service has slipped and I suspect that the meat is also not quite what it used to be, you can find better cuts in JHB at better prices... Great atmoshpere but I suspect they are getting used to the easy tourist / business trade and taking a few short cuts.
1.You are not able to have a glass of tap water with ice free but have to buy bottles of water.
2. Watch out for the maitre De who comes to ask what wine you would like, without a wine list, and then recommends a bottle of wine costing R405-00.
You get a lot of value for your money spent -- compared to Europe & America. Reservation recommended to be granted seats. Lovely beef and an excellent variety of wines. Was in SA for 4 days and had supper there 3 nights + 1 lunch, a sign for how much we liked the place. Think 99,9% of the waiters/es are super, yet we got ripped off by one of them lying about service fees.
This bustling little restaurant within a delightful node of eateries, is conveniently located near the entrance to Hyde Park Corner.
The decor is simple yet effective. The predominantly green colours of the walls and seats complement this seafood restaurant. ...
