We have eaten at Butcher Boys many times and whilst they might be in the upper end of the price scale, they do offer tasty, dry aged beef. Service was ok last time we were there and food was good. Conveniently located in Florida Road, one of the busier night life spots in Durban and close to loads of good... More

Butcher Boys delivers every time. We regularly meet my husband's brother and his wife there for lunch or we go there on our date night. You can either enjoy something from the al la carte menu or settle for the lunch menu, which is great. Staff are attentive and never hassle you to leave. Brilliant vibe and great steaks

Our lunch here was perfect. Perhaps the best steak I have had. Certainly up there. Lovely pink centre of steak and seared outer. Great sauce. Great range of sauces. Prices very fair for what you get. One can see why BB gets it reputation.

We loved this restaurant and rated it the best meal of our 16 day South African trip. The steaks were melt in the mouth tender. The waitress gave us different wines to taste so we could decide. The atmosphere was buzzy. The mini desserts are such a good idea and a delicious way to finish a memorable meal. The prices... More

We went to butcher boys for a friends 21st dinner, it was incredible. At first when I saw the menu and prices I was shocked but once I had my first bite of the shrimp steak I forgot about the prices. Really exceptional service, relaxed vibe and excellent food. Definitely worth the money. Would go back again in heartbeat.
