When you look at the profusion of restaurants, eateries and delis in the mother city, it is easy to become overwhelmed by the sheer volume of choices, especially when all you want is a great steak. The Nelsons Eye is a well-established steak house in an unfussy setting, with some of the best cuts of meat the city has to offer. First opened in the early sixties, virtually every Capetonian has a story involving this restaurant, and their approach to meat is brilliant. You can (on request) view the maturing room where they rotate the cuts, and also make your choice of cuts at the grill, from ostrich to beef to springbok and lamb. Try the Kudu Carpaccio starter, wafer thin slices of kudu with fresh rocket, lemon, olive oil & balsamic reduction topped with parmesan shavings. Follow that up with a beautiful “Hollandse Biefstuk” which is your choice of steak rolled in spices, brandy flambéd and served in a fresh mushroom, mustard and red wine butter based sauce.
