We enjoyed as mains a Surf n Turf with prawns and a butchers special plate, all served with 4 different sauces (we specially asked for it) The grain feeded meat was unique,... More

Already an icon in Florida Rd for many years I had the pleasure to revisit after some time away. The meat options are varied and although pricey, the quality is good and cooked with precision based on order. Unusual cuts such as prime rib and rib eye are offered.

Butcher Boys is the best steak I've had out in Durban. My wife and I shared the mixed platter of four different steaks. They were perfectly cooked and the service is great. Well worth a visit for a top steak!
