This is a grill house on steroids. The busy 600-seater meat emporium has been serving great steaks to businesspeople, local celebrities. families, and foreign visitors for 20 years.
Grass or grain-fed, on or off the bone – you can specify the exact cut and weight of your matured piece of beef, whether local or imported, and have it grilled with basting or spices. Vary your experience and opt for venison or splash out on wagyu. A South African staple, Chakalaka, is among the sauces on offer and sides include homely roast pumpkin, creamed spinach, pap and mashed potato. Non-carnivores need not starve – there is sea food and fish to grill as well as a vegetarian platter or burger and many salads. Desserts include Malva Pudding with custard and ice-cream, chocolate brownies and other steak house staples.
There’s an extensive wine list befitting an establishment with two cellars and a sommelier, plus a substantial collection of brandies and whiskeys.
Waiters in braces and butcher aprons deliver efficient service.
The glittering entrance with a Butchery and Deli off to the side gives way to a huge, buzzing space with windows onto the Square. The interior is in traditional gentleman’s club style and big screens ensure you can keep an eye on any important sporting event while dining. Best for impressing foreign visitors, deal making or spoiling meat lovers in the family. There are a couple of private dining rooms to cater for groups of over 8 people.
