We have regularly visited Butchers over recent years and thoroughly enjoyed an evening meal with our family this week. The food was excellent - highlights being the Lamb Shanks and the chocolate pudding. The house French wine was also really good. The ambience at Butchers...adds to the quality of the meal and the staff were friendly, professional and extremely welcoming. We also dropped in for coffee and cake during the day, which was a much enjoyed treat and even early evening cocktails on another day. Many thanks for the warm welcome on each occasion.More

Lovely meal, we had steak which was good and cooked perfectly. Choc walnut brownies were AMAZING. Staff friendly and helpful. Owner took the time to speak with everyone before and after meal. Been here quite a few times now and it never disappoints.

Ate their this evening !! What a disappointment in so many ways! Service and professionalism non existent ? Says online can pay by card! But nothing said when when we asked made an excuse and said the card machine not working ( problem with the...charger?? ) wanted cash either local currency, Stirling or dollars.Food was overpriced and not good, three of the four of us left a lot of food on our plates. The man who appeared in charge of the restaurant when asked what exchange rate was quoted unbelievable low rate then kept changing it and referring to the woman sitting on the till. When we were leaving after paying he started talking about us and being offensive within our hearing for querying the exchange rate. He also ignored my friend twice when she called him (politely) and then began a slanging match with her at the entrance of the restaurant! Unprofessional, and undeserving of the high reviews and rating on Trip Advisoor if I could give them a zero I would. One can only imagine …… why they want paying in cash all the time. Don’t go there!More

Great location and interior design. Staff are friendly and helpful. The owner talked to us at length about his restaurant and The Gambia. The food was superb, especially the fillet steak. Highly recommended!

Butcher’s shop is definitely the place to meet with friends for brunch. The food is scrumptious; from the English breakfast, to the grilled liver, and capitaine fish to name a few. The servers are very friendly and their service is impeccable.

If you’re in Fajara and its environs on any Sunday. Butcher’s Shop is the place to be. An array of savoury (brunch-style) dishes neatly laid out on a long buffet table complemented by an assortment of tasty desserts and unlimited pitchers of wonjor juice and...iced tea — all reasonably priced at less than £10 per head. The vibe among the clientele at Butchers Shop on a Sunday afternoon is laid-back and relaxed with the very sociable and friendly team of servers adding to the special ambiance. Definitely worth a visit on a Sunday — whether you’re on your own, with a friend, or part of a large group.More

Great food in a lovely setting, the staff were brilliant, we had bread while we waited, Duck Spring Rolls, Oyster in Batter, fillet steak, grilled fish and garlic and lime chicken. The Oyster in batter needed more batter, the duck in the spring rolls was...good in 1 but very slim on the other 2 but quality and temperature was great. Grilled fish was tasty and plentiful, chicken with garlic and lime had just the correct amount of marinade, chicken was cooked to perfection and the fillet was tender and juicy. Worth every pennyMore

We went here after golf at Fajara for lunch. We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary on this holiday on 16 April. When we got there there was a banner saying they were having their 30th year in business, on 16 March 1993 , just...one month apart from us! We had a great lunch, super food and great atmosphere. After our meal the owner presented us with a lovely cake with a firework candle. We were so touched at their thoughtfulness and it made our day. What a great place!More
