About us


Looking forward to meating you…

Steak Etc is an all-new top-floor restaurant in Colchester specialising in – you guessed it – fantastic steaks. This high-quality steakhouse, which is quite simply in a league of its own, affords far-reaching views over Colchester town centre and beyond. The traditional oak beams and exposed brick walls conjure up the kind of atmosphere you’d find in the steakhouses of New York’s Meatpacking District and give the place a cosmopolitan feel.

The very best chefs, all of whom are experts in cooking steak, are on hand to prepare the finest cuts of meat and cook them exactly to your liking, while the staff have a genuine passion for exceptional service. Whether it’s a New York strip, sirloin or rump, every steak has been dry-aged on site – it’s the absolute best way to concentrate flavour. As if the vibrant atmosphere, fabulous food and excellent service weren’t enough, we have a fantastic range of cocktails and carefully selected wines to accompany your meal.

“I knew I was in love because I was starving, but I still thought of her. Then I thought, “Steak!”
