I wasn't looking forward to the 60 minute drive to this restaurant. Arriving there after I parked in ample and safe parking, I greeted at the front door and taken upstairs to our private room. A great and reasonably priced wine list, quick and friendly service and the best smoking section in Johannesburg were the start of a great evening.... More

This is just the place to go for a good steak. The service is friendly and efficient and my fillet was perfectly grilled. The wine list is well-chosen, with several wines available by the glass. A good espresso rounded off an excellent meal.

We rented the upstairs function room and balcony for our Christmas lunch. We had canapés the whole afternoon that were divine and the lunch turned into a real party when we started playing music with their great sound system.

Our experience at the Grillhouse was really good. The food was excellent - we ordered the calamari starter and for a grillhouse it was really very good. Better than I've had in some seafood restaurants. The spare rib full portion is 1kg of ribs and is more than enough for two to share and then some. Also really well flavoured... More

I had a client lunch at the Grillhouse last week. It is always one of my favourite restaurants and somewhere where i am very happy to take an important client. The service was excellent, as always, and everybody else's meals were good. I ordered the salmon (which i often have), and i was very disappointed. It had clearly been cooked... More

I travel to many countries and dinning places. But even though South Africa is known for its steaks, this place beats the rest. Everytime i visit Sandton i go hear once or twice during the visit. Excellent service, excellent food and Oysters you will die for.

I eat stakes arround rhe world and this is realy the best. Coming to Johannesburg a few times a year and never skip the Grillhouse Fillete On The Bone (Not on the menu, ASK for it).

We had the ribs there half pork, half beef. They were really excellent and reasonably priced. Service was good and and I cannot comment on starters or desert as we did not have any given the portion size we chose (large).

So disappointed with my meal here 2 weeks ago as I had been looking forward to it for an entire year!

Unfortunately my rump steak which I ordered... More
