We tried both Carne restaurants but Carne on Keerom was one of our favoritere staurants in Cape Town. Staffs are friendly here. And they literally have the best steak in town! Appetizers and desserts are also great. Vanilla icecream with lemon olive oil is a must try!

We were at Carne for Dinner, good selection of red wine at reasonable prices. The selection of meat cuts they had were outstanding. We were also fortunate to have a waiter who was passionate about what he did. They bought a tray of meat to us and explained each cut, which was an interesting experience. This may not be palatable... More

We were 4 for dinner.The steaks were aged perfectly and well presented.Chocolate fondant exceptional. The attitude of the waiter however was brusque and patronizing and spoilt the experience.

What a lovely experience. It starts with customers being shown the many different cuts of meat available (this restaurant is not suitable for vegetarians!) We both chose steak, which came perfectly cooked (I like steak medium, and it's difficult to get this right!) with generous complementary sides, accompanied by an excellent local pinotage. Our waitress, Keallan, was a delight -... More

We were recommended to this restaurant by friends who had previously visited. The food was very good and it was good value for money, but the service was a little slow. I tried the jungle steak special which consisted of ostrich, Kudu, Black Wildebeest, Springbok and Bresbok which I really enjoyed. My partner had the blue cheese gnocchi which was... More

North Americans don't think about beef from outside the US, except Wagyu.....but go to South Africa. Every bit as tender and delicious as American beef, and none of it is corn fed. Remarkable. And start at the best, Carne on Keerom. Silly to waste one of 30 nights in South Africa on a steak joint, right? Wrong! Great but expensive... More

Delicious food, impeccable service and a classy atmosphere. If you like meat then you won't get better than this. The only problem is choosing which cut to have, but luckily the waiters know everything inside out and will explain the menu to you. Highly recommend.

First of all I must say we had 2 fantastic steaks here. However, our waitress showed us all the cuts in front of us before saying they have a 'chefs special' of which only 2 were left. I was then deciding after my wife had picked the sirloin (160 rand) and she said 'someone has just ordered one of them,... More

Three of us had a good meal, prime rib, sirloin on the bone and calves liver - all cooked as we liked it. Found the place a bit dark. All in all a good bite.
