This restaurant is situated in the "Disney like" Montescasino, which in itself is well worth a visit. There is a wide choice on the menu including fish, but go there feeling hungry! You can get a variety of different types and sizes of steak, and due to the special way these are cooked they don't shrink. Also where as in... More

Having previously rated them for serving up one of the best steak I've ever eaten, I was disappointed to return to The Meat Co in January 2016 to find the service and quality has slipped significantly. My reservation had been lost (acceptable slip-up which was quickly corrected). However, my steak ordered medium-rare arrived a little beyond well-done. On mentioning this... More

Quite anonymous as a restaurant, average style. Went there several times. Meat is slightly above average South African quality. This means that there are many other places where meat is better, but in the Montecasino center, in my opinion the best. Tried 250g Fillet medium rare, natural with no sauces. The meat was so soft that I could cut it... More

Went with some overseas guests and terribly disappointed. Poor service, mediocre steaks and prawns so inedible they were returned uneaten. Prawns in a steakhouse? Well, they were on the menu so expect them to be cooked and presented correctly. Avoid this establishment, there are better restaurants.

Decided on the Meat Co whilst we were at Monte....Worst decision we ever made. Firstly, the host could not have been any more rude. She showed a total lack of interest in wanting to give us a table for 6, I am sure it was due to the two children we had with us. Nonetheless we took our seats and... More

Had dinner with 6 quests on 28 December 2015 at THE MEAT CO. at Monte Casino. Used to be one of the best steak restaurants but lost us as customers due to the following: 1. Steak quality was poor, un-matured and with no marbling. It was dry tasteless and an Indian could still pray for the cow if you ordered... More

We had a lovely time at Meat Co. in Montecasino whilst on holiday with the family. Our waiter, Vanessa, was great! She was helpful, sharp and quick. The food took quite some time to be prepared, but when it arrived it was perfect. The staff were friendly enough to help us with any and all questions. I would definitely recommend... More

Have not been to this restaurant for a while, service was slow and most of the food was not very hot. We did mention to our waiter but she did not even offer a sorry. Still a decent steak but if I'm paying R150 for a fillet I expect it to be great. The Meat Co is certainly not the... More
