Owners description

Not only does Buzbey Grill offer decadent steaks, but the menu also includes pan-fried calamari and whole baby calamari cooked in garlic and chill sauce (served as a starter). Mains include the likes of black mussels cooked in a white wine sauce.

User reviews

  • One of the best places to eat steak in Cape Town. Perfect onion rings, well selected cuts and the best stir fry accompaniment. It may not be the fanciest place inside but its quality is excellent. I've been going there for close on 20 years and its never wavered. My only caution: Don't go on a hot night. The air conditioning isn't the best.

  • First class steak but for those unfortunate enough to be facing the wall there is not much in the way of decor.

  • This place has the best fillet steak in Cape Town. I love the retro feel too. The place is always packed, so it speaks for itself. Cape Town folk wont flock to an average place.

  • This place has the best fillet steak in CT...we ate out at Maze and it was not as good as this. I love the retro feel too. The previous reviewer may have gone on an odd, bad night...the place is always packed, so that speaks for itself. Cape Town folk wont flock to an average place.

  • I just dont get the sparkling reviews Ive read for this place. The steaks were ok, but there are certainly much better to be found for a similar price elsewhere. My wife ordered tomato soup, and what came out had the taste and texture of tinned pasta sauce. My starter was angels on horseback, mussels wrapped in bacon, served on a deviled egg plate with no accompanying sauce or greens. I had expected something similar to clams casino, but the tiny parcels tasted only of salty bacon. The best part was probably the onion rings, fried in a cakey but crisp batter. We didnt bother ordering dessert.

    I expected old school, but Buzbeys is just old. Perhaps the decor elicits some nostalgia for simpler times, but I traveled to Cape Town for the food, and the ambience, and this was a wasted meal for me.
