Description: In the heart of Sandton, on Nelson Mandela Square, is the flagship Johannesburg branch of The Butcher Shop & Grill: an institution in South African dining. For over 20 years, our unmatchable steakhouse has been as much a part of SA culture as sunshine, red wine and red meat. You could say it is a landmark on the culinary landscape (and we're now in Cape Town and the Middle East). But The Butcher Shop is also about family - and the laughter, memories and conversations shared with special people over great food at a top steakhouse. Our family business, handed down over three generations, is famed for its quality produce, extensive menu, separate butchery & deli and 800 passionate staff globally. In Johannesburg we're able to seat up to 600 guests, plus 22 guests in our exclusive private dining room. In Cape Town, we can accommodate 250 guests, with capacity for an additional 40 guests in our private dining room.

This is a massive and busy operation. The food was great, but the waiters seemed a bit confused as to who should be serving our table. The atmosphere is lacking with bright lights and lots of suits! Not the place for a romantic dinner. The great meat makes up for it though.

Visited last weekend for a special occasion but was forewarned by several people that The Butcher shop was pricey - relatively speaking, I beg to differ - it is fantastic value for money! that out of the way, the atmosphere was just casual enough to allow for a quiet but jovial evening. Menu wasn't robust (not sure what i expected, but I enjoyed a compact offering - excessive variety is always a bad thing imho) , but The Butcher offered solid staples to satisfy any meat-loving fan. Our waiter was seasoned, charming, confident and efficient. Enjoyed a dinner of ribeye (never seen portions that big) and kobe beef with sides of onion rings and sweet potato. Appreciated the attention to detail - what a pleasure to dine in a JHB venue with a firm grasp of the concept of 'medium rare' and 'rare'. Definitely a firm favourite.

Great food and service. My favourite restaurant in Joburg. Top quality steaks to choose from their shop to be cooked for you. All the food is good quality. Nice atmosphere too. Highly recommended.

He wanted meat, She doesnt do meat. The vegetarian choice, fresh stuffed pasta along with a caesar salad was heavenly. Worth the trip
