The food was very average and lacking in imagination for the price. The salad was the best part of the meal. Our waiter was terrible. He was sullen and kept leaning across our chests to throw the knives and forks on the table. I only wanted vegetables but he was so unhelpful in suggesting anything and just told me to... More

This restaurant never fails to disappoint. I always go there with a group for business so its never by choice. Yesterday saw the staff rearranging the same set of tables three times, each time so noisy you can't here the conversation at your own table. The acoustics are real bad, the staff friendly but not really engaged and the food... More

The service was exceptionally good. Friendly and warm. Not sure why we were put into a smoking part of the restaurant without being asked if we smokers, a little annoyed that we had to find out by two guest smoking next to us and then having to be asked to move. However, meal and service was good and we enjoyed... More

Please change your waiter if you are allocated Senzo, not rude but very rough and forgettable. The1/2 peri chicken dont mind it being a baby chicken but was pre cooked bland white and more steamed than frilled. The wedges with the tranchado only ½ cooked not great, Overall not recommended 2/10 the location only is good that is all

What a pleasant visit to Meat Co. Food and service was excellent. Always like to sit outside and watch people going by while I enjoy a glass of wine in good company. Atmosphere is very relaxed and time just fly pass unnoticed. The only reason why I gave them 4/5 was that the wine I choose from the menu was... More

Wife ordered a medium to well done steak,but got it rare and the waitress instead of apologizing had the audacity to say she didn't cook the meal and doesn't see why she should say sorry.It was my wife's birthday and such tardiness could so easily have ruined the day.They took the steak and put the same one back to the...

20 min for a glass of red wine and a beer! Waitress not attentive at all even after complaining to the manager! Ordered a Medium rare steak and I received a welldone. Didn't end up eating anything. It's rather disturbing that the Meat Company messes up a steak.

What was supposed to be a birthday celebration turned into a bit of a disaster. With so many places to choose from we were unfortunate enough to end up here. Service from Portia was on point and she was a delight. The kitchen however served a bacon sauce after ordering a biltong sauce! This is a huge problem and management... More

My wife and I visited TMC for an evening out. Nothing drew us there but my wife is food intolerant so we browsed the menu and she could make a meal of sides. No complaints. I had the Oxtail which was really good. It had a slight smell of having burnt on the stove. But not a burnt taste. It... More

My husband and I often went to the meat company for anniversaries or valentines day. He called week before and booked us a table for our anniversary. When we arrived they directed us to a table against the wall int eh doorway and obviously hadn't reserved the table, why do you let people call in reservations for a good table... More
