Carne is a top location in Capetown. The service was excellent, the atmosphere contemporary and the food just delicious. A wide range of South African wines are offered to a very reasonable price. The highlight of course is the meat, which is unbeatable. As a starter, try the home made pasta.

I came here with 12 buddies on a cricket tour and we had a great evening. A lot of meat on the menu and I chose the 400g on the bone rib, medium rare. Off the scale wonderful piece of meat and an international bargain too at less than £10/ZAR170. We had plenty of wine (the Pinotage) at keen prices.

The decor is fairly utilitarian but none the worse for that. The bottom line is that we ate wonderfully, drank fine wine, had a great evening and enjoyed it more than London's Hawksmoor and the Gaucho. The cheap rand makes Carne a steal.

We have dined at 95 Keerom on a number of occasions and the excellent atmosphere, food and service has been carried over to this meat centered basement restaurant opposite.The meat offerings are brought to the table on a large tray and each cut and the way it is prepared is professionally described by the waiter. My wife does not eat red meat but was very pleased with her chicken dish. The quality of meat is the best we have encountered in Cape Town.

Fantastic quality and variety of meat are certainly unsurpassed. Unfortunately the preparation lets this simple plan fail, as my medium rare "plank" steak was overdone and rather tough, and the hangar steak was tough and chewy. We were also seated right outside the meat curing fridge, which was frequently open and filled the air with raw meat! Not ideal, considering the booking was made 6 weeks in advance. There are better options at this price point.

Contrary to popular belief that South Africa has the best beef, all you have to do is buy some Botswana Beef from Makro and then reassess - having said that, we just don't compare to the better grill establishments in Sydney and New York and San Francisco to be fair. The steaks there whether "broiled" as opposed to grilled are A-W-E-S-O-M-E-! So....now comes Carne in Cape Town and they blow my mind because their carefully aged meat tastes almost as good and surpasses anything I've eaten in South Africa by miles! Not only is the meat perfectly aged, tastes like the equivalent of truffles when compared to brown mushrooms, but it was grilled to perfection. Well done Carne.

As for the service...oh well that is another matter altogether...somewhat wanting, as is any attention by management.
