Calling all meat-lovers! Portions were good and meats were succulent!! Despite my husband made a mistake of having a steak at 4:30pm at another restaurant, he was still able to order another one at 9pm as theirs looked and smelled too good to miss! Their website was helpful as it showed and explained each type of cuts, to help you... More

We were staying within walking distance of Florida Road and, on the recommendation of our guide, Lutendo, we went to Butcher Boys for an evening meal. It was our first experience of ostrich and it was excellent. The desserts were also wonderful. Our waiter was efficient, attentive and very friendly.

Prepare to enter a temple to meat with an emphasis on SA products! The dining room is lively, and service is warm and attentive at the tables or the bar.

Good overall dining experience, we didn’t book our table and just decided to visit the restaurant out of impulse but we were welcomed like we did book. Our table was perfectly located and our waitress was friendly and informative. Overall this was a fine dining experience, I can recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves his meat and wine.

We were able to get a table, but it seems everyone books so were right at the back...would recommend booking if you want the street scene. Service good, though the cocktails took ages to come and they do that annoying thing of taking plates as people finish, not when everyone is done. Steaks were fine and salad to share was... More

Haven't been to Butcher boys in years, still as good as the first visit in 2009. Steaks are always excellent. Their marrow bones and calamari starters are definitely worth a try.

My wife and I stopped in for lunch. I had the chilli beef strips and creamed spinach, she had the pork ribs and 1/2 chicken with chips. Everything was really flavorful!! In fact, the chips were the best I'd ever tasted in South Africa. You know how most chips in SA are soft and soggy? ugh! The ones we were... More
