Nice little steakhouse in the heart of Umhlanga. Ambience is lovely, food is yummy! Linked to the Holiday Inn Express so it's a must visit if you are staying at this hotel. Great specials for lunchtime as well.

I have never yet been dissapointed in a Butcher Boys. The fillet steak was to die for and the side dishes were great, altho things didnt seem to all come at once and the bottled water was warm.

This is the place to go if you want a good hearty meal. The steaks were tender and tasty. Prices were fair. A bit noisy.
