The Grillhouse is a steak house with a wide menu of salads, ribs, burgers and steaks. We had two adults and two kids 8 and 11. Total meal with a salad, appetizer, 2 drinks and main coarses was only $65, about 1/2 the cost of the same meal in the usa. Kids were happy with food. Beef and burger were... More

Still a very good steak house even if to crowded for my taste. Steaks are nice as they always have been but some of the other steak houses in this city have found better ways to get customers to eat in there restaurant , such as providing you quality beef from a certain region or farm and guaranteed naturally fed...

I have been to this restaurant a few times and still cannot put my finger on any issue. Great service and even better food. The steaks are heavenly and the wine list pretty close.

On our last trip to Jozi, we ate here three nights in a row. It was good each night. The groups we where with all ejoyed there steaks each night. However, we where really disapointed with the Ribs ( not a good choice, not slow cooked, so they were still tough, and not great flavour). Very please with wine list... More

It was about 9 A.M. when we made an online reservation for 6 P.M. to assure we could be seated. With no reply by 3 P.M. we called and spoke with a manager. The manager explained that even though the reservation was made early, they had filled the previous day. Detecting my wife's foreign accent (USA), he told her to... More

Every time I go I am amazed. Best steak I have ever eaten. The fillet on the bone is the signature dish. But everything is amazing. Nice place to go before heading out, especially with Katzy's next door.

Reservations recommended, particularly on Friday nights and weekends. If no reservation, ask to sit at the bar where you can eat and drink where the action is! Good menu to choose from with catering for all diets. A superb wine list to chose from and if not happy with wine list just walk around to the cellar room where a... More

Had a very nice 450g T-bone steak. Incredibly cheap (compared to Italian prices) but very high quality meat. It cost around 10 euro. Staff was very friendly. Service was great!

The selections were enormous and the food overall excellent. Then when you pair it with outstanding south african wine - it is really something. Prices were very inexpensive - compared to London

Absolutely love this restaurant. Great Service. Menu is small but has variety. Steaks, Ribs, Fish, Chicken and a couple of Veg options. Can be pricey but the food the food is excellent. Come here quite often to celebrate. It's never disappointed. Able to cater for large groups as well. Booking required on a Friday and Saturday, it get really busy.
