The meat offers are delicious and of good quality. The service is a bit too efficient and fast and could pay more attention to the guests needs. But anyway very recommandable.

Was greeted by the host, taken to the seat and then had everything explained. Sh was terrific and gave us a sense of a good feeling for the... More

A superb experience. It is easy to understand why Butcher Boys is rated as one of the best restaurants in Durban. Service is attentive but not intrusive. The ambience and atmosphere allows everyone to enjoy their meal in their own way in an upbeat way. The food is to die for me. I can thoroughly recommend the Chateaubriand but all... More

Thank you Butcher Boys Restaurant for hosting our group. The service was superior and the food was outstanding. Please give my complements to the chef. If you are in South Africa you have to eat at this restaurant. Try the lamb chops they are to die for!

I hang re been here a number of times, and have never been disappointed. I love the narrow bones, and the prime rib in particular, but all their meat is aged and excellent. One of the finest steakhouses in Durban, and has been going a long time which is always a barometer of how good a restaurant is.
