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.

    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.
    Having battled for months to get in we were delighted to take an out of town friend there today and boy were we not disappointed. Every attention to detail has been made. The chalmar beef is so beautiful and well aged... And cooked to perfection. We tried their speciality steaks... I had the New Yorker which even comes with a marrow bone. My friend had the ribeye on the bone and all our sauces were exceptional. They don't charge corkage which helps take the sting out of the the meal... Even the steak knives are different and super sharp. Dessert was melktert and warm stick toffee.... Sublime. Rita the owner spends time chatting and there is no doubt in my mind we'll be back. LOVED IT.
