Hey steak lovers! There’s a new steak-house in town, Steak & Grill Co is situated in one of Durban’s busiest hubs, Florida Road, and offers a wide range of meals.

The restaurant has three signature steaks which are Au poivre (fillet served with a brandy and thyme infused pepper sauce), Deconstructed Carpetbagger (fillet served with a smoked oyster sauce and mushroom sauce), and Fillet Flambe (fillet cointreau Flambéed with wholegrain mustard and cream) which all cost R245 for 300g and R355 for 500g. 

You can have these with any side of your choice between rustic fries, vegetable of the day, Parmesan mash, onion rings, side salad or Italian spinach.

If you are not a fan of steak there are other options on the menu from starters to mains including chicken livers, oysters, falklands calamari, bone marrow, salads, pork ribs, lamb chops, grilled ostrich and more.

Co-owner Steve Christodoulou said their menu is a carnivores delight with a comprehensive meat offering with a twist on sauces and presentation.

Christodoulou said they chose to open the restaurant on Florida Road because of its status as an iconic Durban street that is enjoying a resurgence and it is a real space as opposed to shopping malls and “Franchise Boulevard" in Umhlanga Village.

With the help of the restaurant's executive chef, Simon Mayise we were treated to a two-course meal with 2 choices per course.

For starters I had their pan fried Mozambican peri-peri chicken livers and for the main I had sirloin served with rustic fries. 

The dishes were well presented and I enjoyed them. My medium steak was cooked to perfection.

As from next month the restaurant will be having food and wine pairing evenings and daily specials that will predominantly be exotic meats such as duck and game.

Steak & Grill Co is situated at 295 Florida Road and is open on Tuesdays from 5.30pm until 10pm and Wednesdays to Sunday from 12pm until 10pm.
