This restaurant has become one of our regulars for lunches and suppers. A regular stop because it was good food combined with great value. However, lunch today has meant we will rethink going back and while we realize it is a busy time with Christmas Parties we were disappointed from various perspectives. The menu had been changed and was not... More

I stayed at the holiday inn next door, and was here on two occasions. The holiday inn has a call and pickup service which was great, they were fast and courteous. Most importantly, the food was great (camembert and bacon burger). The second occasion was dinner with 16 people. The staff was very professional, food came quick, the steaks were... More

I was recently on a business trip to Durban and went to the Butcher Block for dinner. The food was really great but I can't recall when last I had such shocking service. After repeatedly trying to get attention to place my order, it was finally taken. No one checked during the meal that my meal was ok. To get... More

We dined here twice while staying at the Holiday Inn Express as the first visit was so good. It's usually busy so it's best to book. The first night we dined on fillet steak and Karoo lamb chops with mozam chicken and mushrooms - all excellent and drank a Creation Pinot Noir. On our second visit we dined on maple... More

Really good steak well prepared and tasty. I had the ribeye with chips and onion rings. The onion rings are nice and big but a bit doughy. I normally take veggies or pap And sous and think I will stick to that again next time. Steak always excellent when I eat here
