Raising the steaks? Well yes, that’s what we do for a living, and then some. With its classic, unpretentious, relaxed charm The Butcher Shop & Grill is where good food, wine and lots of laughter meet in a blend of what has become a South African institution. In the heart of Sandton, The Butcher Shop & Grill on Nelson Mandela Square is more than a ‘steak place’. Look closely, as many regulars do, at the unmatched quality of the produce and outstanding value for money, as well as at the menu where meat is as much a delight as fish, poultry and wine.

The Butcher Shop & Grill is the only steak restaurant to have received a coveted maximum of three stars in the Rossouw’s Restaurants 2009 and 2010. The restaurant is now also expanding to the Middle East.

Well hung and aged to perfection
The Butchery at The Butcher Shop & Grill is renowned for its customised butchering. It’s like the old fashioned butcher rooted in traditions that run deep, where specialist blockmen cut and prepare your meat as you like it.

Our lamb is hung and aged to perfection, chosen from an abundance of lamb legs, rosemary-wrapped deboned legs, juicy thick sliced leg chops, not to mention the beef, and our famous biltong. Come in and discover why discerning customers would prefer to keep secret the quality and surprising value for money – together with a passion for perfection.


The Butcher Shop & Grill uses "Aged Meat". Our meat is hung in carcass for up to 3 days, thereafter the Rump, Sirloin, Fillet, Rib-Eye, T-Bone and Prime Rib are "Wet Aged" for approximately 21 days.

Any special requests for larger cuts will be individually cut at our in-house butchery (meat counter), weighed and charged pro rata to the menu price.

Wine Cellar
Pick’s Pick presents a portfolio of outstanding value wines to be enjoyed at the table or at home. The result of many years of co-operation and friendship with some of the finest winemakers in the country, which have been bottled on the estates exclusively for The Butcher Shop & Grill.

While it is true that Pick’s Pick wines offer outstanding value for money and acclaimed lineage, the Limited Edition Collection is somewhat different and a little more exclusive. These wines are once-off barrels which have been made exclusively available for The Butcher Shop & Grill from some of the most acclaimed South African winemakers.

Vintage Cellar
There is something special about something that will never be available again. The wine cellar at The Butcher Shop & Grill is alive with a variety of rare South African wines. For professional advice on wine investment and portfolio planning, Mark and Patrick will gladly assist.


Butchery & Fishery
Here, discerning shoppers have a choice of some of the finest quality meat and our skilled artisanal block men are only too happy to cut steak, and chops and legs of lamb to your order. You won't find polystyrene or plastic packaging and lonely unloved meat sighing forlornly from behind nondescript chillers, but dry aged and well hung beef and lamb which has built the reputation of The Butcher Shop & Grill.

Consider speaking to the staff at the butchery when next you're planning to entertain at home - compare our prices which are guaranteed to bring you back for more, particularly when you see the impact they have on that stretched budget. Call us ahead of time and we'll arrange and pack your order.

Private Dining
At the heart of the restaurant lies a small, intimate private dining room – very much part of the mainstream, but behind closed doors, becomes a sanctuary of quiet intimacy, business privacy, or private celebration.

The private dining room comfortably seats ten people and booking can be arranged at the front desk or by request, when making your reservation. We also offer a tailor made menu for groups of 10 and more.
