First of all I must say we had 2 fantastic steaks here. However, our waitress showed us all the cuts in front of us before saying they have a 'chefs special' of which only 2 were left. I was then deciding after my wife had picked the sirloin (160 rand) and she said 'someone has just ordered one of them,... More

Three of us had a good meal, prime rib, sirloin on the bone and calves liver - all cooked as we liked it. Found the place a bit dark. All in all a good bite.

Good accessibility. Great decor, balanced atmosphere. Fantastic meat, very well cooked. The grill allows to show all the flavor of the meat. A reference

Food was not bad, just average. Then came the bill! I was charged R536 for an average sized average tasting rib-steak (off-menu so I was totally unaware I was buying the most expensive steak I'd ever eaten, whether in Europe, the US, Canada or South Africa). To add injury to insult I was charged R35 for utterly tasteless spinach (the... More

The customer service was great - the waiter was friendly and knowledgeable, and the manager came to our table at the end of the meal to check if everything met our expectations. The decor was pleasant. The meal is fairly affordable if you are visiting from the West, but on the pricier side if you are local. I went to... More

Our group of 5 really enjoyed our dining experience in Carne. The different cuts of meats were brought to our table to see what we were getting. Our selection varied from game to sirloin and fillet steaks and all were served and cooked to perfection as per the order. Good value

The food was very good and the staff very friendly and helpful, but I was disappointed that the Burger was not available as that was really what I fancied having. The room is very dark and we needed our phones to see the menu. My battery expired and when I asked for a light I was told they don't have... More

If I want to eat steak in Cape town, then I will always choose Carne and I prefer the Keroom branch to the one on Kloof Street. Lovely setting downstairs, lighting is low, atmosphere is good but not too noisy. Service is always top notch and very good wine advice from the sommelier. We both chose ribeyes, not that common...

…this is a meat restaurant. Our knowledgeable waiter, having successfully navigated his way through the complexities of our initial drink order, then offered us a complex ‘show-and-tell’ of the meat on offer. Massive, marbled muscle was paraded for our inspection and choice, and while those choices were being cooked – to perfection – the Italian-style first courses and pastas were... More
