We grill on charcoal

How does butcher work?

We select the best premium beef that we mature ourselves and then grill on charcoal. This ensures the unique flavors that we strive for. With our dishes you can choose from different simple and seasonal side dishes. These are handmade from daily fresh products.

By grilling on charcoal we always have an improved taste. As the meat heats up, droplets are released that hit the super-hot charcoal and burn. These droplets are full of fats, oils, sugars and proteins that evaporate and rise again in the meat they came from. This is how you get that delicious taste from grilling on charcoal.

What an experience. They have really top quality meat here. It's not a cheap restaurant, but you pay for premium products. It is not your average restaurant and really for the meat lover. Their gin & tonic is also worth a try. Recommended.

Butcher is a very pleasant business. The quality of the meat is of a very high level. Besides the great food, the chef and waiter are also very pleasant and friendly. The setting is very nicely decorated and looks authentic. That's also the concept I think of going back to authenticity.

We had a plank street food with ribs, wings, burrito and other finger food, very tasty. Just like the fillet pure with pepper sauce. A must is the donut or churros for dessert. Friendly and helpful service.

Our meat

Butcher's house aged meats


1st De Salers cows, a sturdy breed that can take a beating. Originally they are mountain cows. Because they are in motion a lot, they have well-developed muscles. The meat of the Salers cow is known in France as the best beef in the world. The sirloin steaks are therefore one of the tastiest of its kind.
