Joop’s Place was established in 1993 by Joop and Wendy Mol; the couple intended to share their passion and knowledge of food with all of Durban. Joop’s Place became a local institution synonymous with the best steaks in town.

Joop’s is not just a lunch or dinner; it is a specialist dining experience designed to cater to people who want to enjoy being part of a family and a great community. Whether you’re stopping in for a light starter or one of their famous pepper steaks, they guarantee only the finest quality meal every time!

Joop’s is unusual for many reasons, but one thing makes Joop’s unique. Oom Joop wanted his customers to witness the skill and drama of delivering those sizzling blue-ribbon steaks onto your plate. That is why this is the only grill restaurant in Durban with a display window to the grill area. 

This allows you to enjoy your drinks as the flames work their magic. Mandla and Jefrey are top-notch chefs trained by Oom Joop in the searing of steaks. Both have a longstanding affiliation with Joop’s Place. Joop’s Butchery is a neighborhood butcher shop in the vibrant city of Durban, offering artisanal meats and meat products that are made in-house.

Joop’s Butchery specializes in sourcing venison, such as kudu, eland, blue wildebeest, impala, springbok, and other exotic cuts, and will keep their clients informed when stock is available.
