The Grillhouse offers some of the finest steaks in Johannesburg. The service is always good and I have never had a bad meal at the restaurant.

The restaurant is located just a few steps outside the Hyatt Regency in the adjacent mall. The menu has a large selection of meat and seafood - basically classical steakhouse fare with some African additions, sich as ostrich. It is along my top 5 meat restaurants in Johannesburg. Reservations are highly recommended - unless you dine very early. I recommend... More

Have been here for a business lunch before. Did not know how it would turn out for family. My kids loved it and the waiters found something as close as possible to a kids menu. Great family lunch

We went for a business lunch, everyone enjoyed their fish and steaks. My fillet on the bone was really good. We often had to look for the waiter, this needs attention.

One of the best steakhouses in SA if not the world. Menu excellent, vegan, fish and poultry also available, all really good - check out the specials! Starters & Deserts solid. Wine list and cellar as good as it gets! Atmosphere awesome, always busy, filled with the great, the good and everyone else. If you like steak and you are... More

Much vaunted by a colleague, who suggested this for a post meeting dinner, our meal was a bit disappointing - steak not cooked to order, vegetables overcooked, service was almost too quick and as a consequence we felt processed rather than looked after.

After two visits to the Grillhouse within two weeks, I guess I have a good idea about its capacities. Nice decor, good lay-out of restaurant, but lousy acoustics, due to the fact that there are only "solid" materials used in the restaurant and hardly any fabrics. To hold a conversation in the middle of the noise poses a challenge. The... More

Nice decor, decent service and brilliant steaks. Always order your steaks pepper crusted as the basted ones just spoil the taste of the meat. Onions rings would be the side of choice. My wife likes the fillet on the bone while I prefer the 300g fillet off-bone. Prices are extremely reasonable for the quality that you get.

A lot of friends told me about this restaurant and it was the first one I went after I arrived in Joburg. Great services, nice decoration but the steak was not amazing. Was good but nothing really spectacular. I was expecting more, but maybe it's because South American meat is still my favorite. So I have really high standards. Decent... More

A three block from 54 on Bath Hotes & was a safe walk. Every item was perfect from steak to dessert and wine - wife and I actually ate there twice first week of June. We had found restaurant om tripadviser and found it to better than advertised. Service great and bill with tip 5800R = less than $60.00 USD... More
