Located on Nelson Mandela Square and open since 1994 The Butcher Shop & Grill is an actual butchers shop with a restaurant on the side. There is a butcher shop right next to the entrance and you can see the meat hanging and aging.
It was very busy when we arrived and we had a short wait for a table so I would definitely recommend booking in advance.
The crowd was very mixed, a couple of small tour groups, a few business people and some families all mixed together creating a nice level of chatter.
The restaurant itself is a little 'market' like with exposed pipe work etc so it suits the theme.
The menu is quite straightforward, nothing fancy or fine dining. No pretensions here. Steaks are what most people come here for but there was lots of other choice on the menu, they had veggie burger on the menu but otherwise it was heavily loaded with meat dishes... but I guess if you were vegetarian you wouldn't choose to go to a restaurant called The Butcher Shop and Grill....
My husbands sirloin steak was good, not an amazing cut but cooked as ordered. My beef ribs were delicious, but too big a portion for me. We didn't order dessert as we were so tired we just wanted to hit our bed however like the main menu they were quite traditional, old style.
