Owners description

Carbon Bistro was inspired by careful attention to what it means when referring to good food, good service and an overall sense of "What an Experience". They are a modest elegant bistro nestled in the heart of Brooklyn and at Carbon Bistro they are particularly focused on bringing back the core values of what it means to be a restaurant. They will forever endeavor to provide ever welcome guests with only the best that is on offer from beginning to end.

The menu has a meat-forward focus and they pride ourselves on using unique cuts of beef as well as origin-based cuts like our prized Australian Wagyu beef. We use different styles of preparation such as smoking, braising, roasting and char-grilling.

User reviews

  • We’ve had dinner here three times and each has been an incredible treat! The staff are knowledgeable, friendly and attentive and the food is superb. I’ll need to apply for my “Gin Passport” - what a selection!

  • What I loved: service - absolutely superb! And the very focused menu, it doesn't try to be all things to all people. What I liked: the food and plating was good, but not mind blowing. I had the beef ribs with a sticky blueberry sauce. The meat was tender but the sauce, while sweet and sticky, barely had much of a blueberry flavour. I had this with the roast root vegetables which were incredible! The chocolate mousse dessert was mostly forgettable, but the honeycomb was a delight. What I disliked: the price. Our bill for two was around R600 and that excluded alcohol (but included their tonic drinks) and any starters or appetisers. Generally, it's a decent experience if you enjoy red meat, but I'm not in a hurry to return.
