This was truly magnificent. Springbok carpaccio and wings with peri peri sauce and then I had the small fillet steak! It was cooked to perfection with a peppercorn sauce. No room for afters. Can't imagine what the large steak was like. Chatted to the owner who obviously was keen to know what his customers thought.

I went to the restaurant for a business dinner. There were 16 of us and the food arrived all at the same time and cooked to perfection as per each individual requirements. I found this pretty amazing considering most of us had ordered meat. The quality of the meat was superb. Only down side was the wating time. I also... More

Three of us visited for dinner whilst staying on business. Outstanding steak, even by South African standards. One of us had ostrich too which is excellent. Location right on Mandela square is buzzing and central. Definitely worth a visit.

The steak was excellent (however you must be careful as not everyone has the same idea of what medium-rare is), mine was cooked perfectly, my wife's was definitely on the rare side of medium.. I found the staff rather uninterested and was left with the impression they really did not care if we were there or not.. The wine list... More

Good piece of sirloin, served with worse monkey gland sauce ever! Looked like dry over cooked onion marmalade! Taste like burned molasses! Took about half teaspoon, told waiter it is no good! Still charged me for the sauce! Will be watching then in future from Butcher Grill across the square!

Myself and my husband went to Trumps Grillhouse & Butchery last night, on our trip to South Africa from Portugal. My husband had a prime rib steak, and I had a ribeye steak. Both steaks were grilled to perfection. As we ordered them, they came out medium rare, and were juicy and tasty. We were assisted by Curtis, the wine... More

It was the worst decision to have a meal in this place. We had very high expectations after having dinner in butchers grill the night before and we thought this might be better but we were wrong. The prices are higher, the food is not that good and the staff have no idea about hosting. I suggest you avoid this... More

It's not the cheapest of eateries, but it's worth every Rand! The steaks impress not only with their size, but also their quality. After a large and delicious starter of Calamari and Carpaccio of Springbok, my colleague had a Sirloin steak of enormous proportions, and I ordered a filet steak - ladies' size. Melt in the mouth! The cheese board... More

A friend recommended this venue for our dinner, which was a great recommendation. We had a simple supper of steak, creamed spinach.

Established in 1994, we have become a favorite amongst the locals and business people in and around the Sandton area. We've hosted many local and international guests— you may even spot local and international celebrities too. Trumps is popular with many tour operators and airlines; we are frequented by customers from British Airways, Qatar, Virgin, Lufthansa, and others. We are the number one seller of Karan Beef in Johannesburg and all our beef is aged on the premises in a cold room, for 21 days.

What can our patrons expect?

Affordability, consistency, excellent service and outstanding meals. We pride ourselves on being able to create the highest quality meals, all at affordable prices. We have an extensive menu that has taken years to develop.
Our food can be described as top notch. At Trumps, "It's all about the meat." A variety of steaks, including Fillet, Rump, Sirloin, and Prime Rib are a must for meat lovers. Our famous BBQ ribs are another favorite amongst our customers. Otherwise we have a variety of seafood and chicken dishes to suit every customer's liking.

With all the experience over the years and a great and competent team back and front of house, we have the ability to produce consistently excellent results, no matter how busy we may be.

We have an extensive wine menu, to cater for all tastes. Our passion to bring new and exciting meals and wine to the world has driven us to source our wines from around the world. Our newly built cellar offers a host of local and international wines, impressive for even the most sophisticated palate. With a new in-house butchery opening at the end of October, many of our patrons will soon be able to take a piece of Trumps home with them.

We have two Private rooms available for both corporate and personal functions. The Johnnie Walker Private Room, and our Glenfiddich Private Room. Whether it's a company meeting, year end, or even just a special occasion that needs to be celebrated, dine in comfort and style. Each room is customized to offer an experience worth remembering!
