Butcher Block offers an intimate and relaxing dining experience.

The Brand

With a strong desire to provide quality steaks to the people of South Africa, Butcher Block was founded in 2003 by Manuel Savic and has since grown into a well-known and highly respected steakhouse company.


Butcher Block offers an intimate and relaxing dining experience. The restaurant has the most succulent, tender and flavoursome steaks. Every steak served undergoes a specialised ageing process to ensure texture, flavour and colour. The meat is supplied by Chalmar Beef, one of South Africa’s top meat suppliers, and only AAA Grade cuts are served. The menu ensures that every taste is catered for by offering seafood, poultry and traditional venison dishes alongside the star attraction – exceptional quality steaks.

Butcher Block’s temperature controlled wine cellar is the centre piece of the sophisticated executive grill. Diners may visit the cellar that houses wines from some of South Africa’s most revered wine estates. There is the opportunity for the discerning wine lover to purchase vintage wines to take away for their own collection at home.


The franchisee and key personnel will undergo an intensive eight week training programme, which encompasses both theoretical and practical on the job training within an existing operation. The training is designed to fully understand the operation of their new business.
