Owner's description

As a consequence of our lacking antlers to sort matters out, man's competitive nature can lead to all manner of attempted besting between friends. One popular method is over a flame. Not by wrestling on a bonfire, but by outdoing your pal in the cooking of man's greatest culinary obsession: THE STEAK.

    Wow experience I can’t describe the food as it was scrumptious Meat was cooked exactly how I wanted it, Medium rare and perfect. On cutting the steak, my knife sliced through like butter. Had the peppercorn steak and no comment For desert tried the stick toffee pudding with ice cream and it took the cake, no pun intended. The drive from CT to Stellenbosch was worth it and I would do this drive weekly to enjoy the food as no one in CT gets close and I have eaten at many restaurants in CT and none get close. Enjoy the trip and the food and relax on the drive home as content as you can be.
    Amazing experience and amazing food - every single time!
    Once of the best meals out in a while! Incredible burrata salad starter then a fillet that was so tender it was like eating butter. Everyone in our party raved about their meal. Generous portions and if you’re a bone marrow fan, you’re in for a treat - every steak is served with a large bone. Service was excellent - our server Sam was professional, efficient and friendly and treated our kids are guests rather than annoyances. Definitely worth a repeat visit!
    I want to nominate this restaurant as the best steakhouse in the Western-Cape. It is truly an amazing experience time and again, I have never been disappointed dining here. We go back all the time as the food is just superb, we have never experienced anything but excellent service and the relaxed atmosphere makes you feel like you are dining at a best friend's house. The most interesting cuts of meat served with mouth-watering side dishes (and of course, my favorite, the slow roasted garlic sauce). Also, a very versatile wine selection makes for the perfect meal. So much attention to detail in every aspect. Worth every penny.
    Best steak by far! Succulent meat cooked to absolute perfection - no need for any sauce as the basting is a perfect compliment to the tender meat - which is juicy but firm. Presentation of the meat cuts upfront is really good and informative - focussing on the meat with just enough trimmings to make your mouth water! What you order is what you get - really good service too.
