This establishment is basically a large butchers shop at the back but also small eatery at the front with a few seats overlooking the Main Road.It has wooden benches but food (meat/burgers,etc) is of excellent quality at very reasonable price.staff also very attentive.Have been here every time i have visited Cape Town and will be going back next visit!

This place is the PITS. That meat counter? Your cooked food doesn't come from here. They have no liquor license, so don't buy the "near beer". I paid for the fake beer and water, and then walked out. If you're craving steak, this is NOT the place. The WORST.

And this place delivers what I DO like in spades! whether you choose your piece of meat or have a meal from the prepared menu, it's going to be deliciously good. Bloody good.The... More

The lonestar (Texan T-bone) was a hit! For 4 of us, we ordered 2 T-bones, 1 rib eye, 4 pieces of lamb cutlets, 1 slice of pork belly and 2 vacuum packed t-bones to bring home. Our bill came to 1200 rand all together, which in our opinion, was super reasonable. We had a bottle of sparkling water, a ginger... More

The Butcher Man has never failed to impress me, ever since it's launch, whether to order and eat in the restaurant, for a quick take-out or to purchase supremely cut and matured meat, the quality has never disappointed - other than the quality of the Biltong is often rather bland.

Consistently top quality fresh meat, well priced, cut as you like it. Great biltong. Burgers to eat in, also very good. Pity their homebrand condiments have preservatives in. As someone who is health conscious, I think it really lets them down and would like to see quality accompaniments to match their meat.

Just love this place. The guy running it has excellent knowledge in meat and is really helpful and friendly. They serve in house steaks but is mainly a butcher shop. Ordered both my Christmas pork belly and New Years eve turkey from this shop. The steaks are also good value with great taste

Really a butchers with a restaurant tagged on. The meet is excellent and not surprisingly dominates the menu. The restaurant is basic but clean and presentable. Prices are veery reasonable. Our steaks were really superb and came with chips and coleslaw. Really all you could eat! The restaurant doesn't seem to serve alcohol, but you can bring your own. Just... More
