Primal Eatery has taken the classic South African passion for braaiing and turned it into a classy affair. It’s not your average steakhouse – in fact they pride themselves on being called a meatery, and encourage an attitude which nears meat obsession!
Everything they do revolves around meat: live fire, innovative cooking techniques and food styling with a twist. Primal Eatery lets you indulge in the sensory experience of a braai while enjoying the service and comfort of a restaurant.
The owners, husband and wife Brynn and Kristina, spent four years coming up with this concept. With their combined experience of travel and restaurant background, Primal Eatery came to life. They come from two very different cultures – Greek and South African – but share a love of family and food. That’s why they put their staff first, food and drink second, and everything else third.
The décor is warm (think fire!) with wooden tables and textured walls. There are a few booths for you to cosy up in if you’re looking for an intimate evening. The bar is inviting and in slightly warmer weather, the terrace is the perfect spot to sip on something cold. No matter where you sit, you’ll be taken care of with special treatment.
Primal Eatery will make you feel like a primal, carnivorous caveman in the best sense. Meat means survival. What kind of meat? Tomahawk steak in the shape of an axe, 28-day aged fillet and 35-day aged rib-eye. Dinner for two? Grab their winter special of two 35-day aged sirloin steaks, a bottle of wine and dessert to share for just R450.
There are plenty of meat-centric restaurants in Cape Town so what makes Primal Eatery different? The fact that your glass will never be empty, the meat is cooked exactly how you want it and everyone has a good time – just like a braai, but classier, and without any of the work.The colder weather has pulled into Cape Town and a hearty meat dish is just what’s needed. Primal Eatery will look after you this winter.
