Greatly enjoyed the steaks and wine recommended by us by our lovely waitress! As it is our first time in Durban she suggested many places that we could visit which was very helpful. All in all a very nice experience and would recommend visiting.

Great atmosphere for a red wine and steak evening with friends or a business lunch/dinner. Service is always excellent, and the boys special on a Wednesday night is great too.

As vegetarians, we looked elsewhere for something decent to eat. The Kashmir restaurant up the road could offer us nothing. Before settling for a take away pizza, or chips, we joined our meat eating friends at Butcher Boys. Despite the fact that they were vey busy, they made room for us, and served us up a fairly good haloumi stack.... More

We had the sirloin and rib combo and the lamb chops...both were excellent and great quality meat! The lamb was tender, tasted great and perfectly grilled. The restaurant is comfortable and the setting and service was excellent. Please keep up the excellent food!

Used to visit this restaurant often. I love this place. Food is always great and never had any major constraints with the service. Last time I visited this restaurant was in September and it was exceptional, probably because they had a celebrity chef. But would recommend this restaurant to any lover of a good peice of meat.

We went here for dinner with a party of eight people including vegetarians, fish lovers and several carnivores and all of us were very happy. The service was really great, the prices moderate for what was offered and of course the wines were also very good. Will certainly return next time I am in the area! :-)

Despite their name, they have a good choice for vegetarians and the waitress suggested an alternative that they could make that was not on the menu. Went with 8 other people and everyone enjoyed their food. Not a single complaint from some usually picky eaters.

Went for dinner on 22 October 2016. Had the best steak that I have ever had in my life. It was done exactly as I like my steak. Alistair promised me that he would make my steak exactly to my liking and did not disappoint. My partner was as excited about his steak. I hope that the Durbanites realise how... More
