Haven't been to Butcher boys in years, still as good as the first visit in 2009. Steaks are always excellent. Their marrow bones and calamari starters are definitely worth a try.

My wife and I stopped in for lunch. I had the chilli beef strips and creamed spinach, she had the pork ribs and 1/2 chicken with chips. Everything was really flavorful!! In fact, the chips were the best I'd ever tasted in South Africa. You know how most chips in SA are soft and soggy? ugh! The ones we were... More

Stunning decor and great atmosphere. Definitely the place to eat if you love anything meat, try their ribs (to die for). Stunning selection of wines and craft beer.

Probably the dining highlight for our visit to Durban. Very popular and needs an early reservation this is a steak bar to compete with anywhere in the world. Staff were helpful and polite, service very good and the food just exquisite. So much choice and so much food just a main course was too much for me even when washed... More

Once again our starters and mains were superb. We had calamari tentacles and avocado prawn starters. We had sirloin and rib combos for mains. I always have their excellent butternut... More

Butcher Boys have a thursday date night special R480 per couple, choice of starters, mains & dessert & a bottle of wine. We both tried the 200g fillet & it was cooked to perfection, our waitress Taz was excellent despite how busy the place was. Give yourself some time to find parking as Florida road is generally busy Good food,... More
