Make sure you book in advance, we visited on a Thursday evening and found it very busy. The atmosphere was great, service excellent and the steaks were just perfect.

We were always treated so well, the service was fantastic, never any problems with reservations, the steak is one of the best I have ever had, and their creamed spinach amazing! When I return one day I will defiantly be back! This is... More

If you ever find yourself in braamfontein, and you feel meat. I will recommend the grillhouse. Excellent service, relaxed environment. Price is a bit on the high for the type of restaurant it is but thats just me.

Conveniently locates inside Rosebank mall, the steakhouse is a classic in the area. Great to go with a group, and get one of the private dining areas. Large wine cellar. Steak is very good, although to me, it gets short of excellent. Almost there. Almost...

Very busy on a Tuesday night. Normally a good sign but we feel like eating in a fast food chain. We are a group of five having all the time for a good night out... Two are still eating their starter when the main course is served already. We make management aware and apologies followed but when the then delayed... More

If you are a meet lover, then this is the place to go. But make sure you have a reservation, as this restaurant is very busy even during week days.

A good safe bet for high quality steaks at a great price. It's worth reserving a seat as even at 7pm on a Monday it was very busy. The menu has plenty of choice and there are usually some specials too as well as a long wine list which the waiters will help you navigate if needed.

The resturant is well situated in The Firs, Rosebank. We all had the fillet on the bone, which came recommended. It is actually the undercut portion of a T Bone Steak, served in two pieces. It was nice and tender but I felt there was more bone than meat. The side dish of creamed spinach tasted bland. We did not... More
