Simply Great Food

The biggest surprise was not the meat, one expects the meat to be good. The Vegetarian Platte was exceptional. I was nearly sorry that I had the rump. At medium-rare it was cooked to perfection and the mustard sauce was something not offered by everyone and it tasted really great.

Great Service, meals are priced at the higher end of the scale but completely worth every cents and very reasonable compared to international prices. The wine choice is very good.

I have been here many times, and each occasion I am made to feel special. The service is amongst the best in the city. I enjoy the fact that the restaurant is owner-managed. Try the beef fillet on the bone. It's on the regular menu so be sure to ask the team. Great chips too. 3 kids were well looked... More

The Grillhouse serves excellent meat, cooked to perfection - according to instructions given. Wines here are also excellent so if you are not a vegetarian you should try it!

With expectations of being just another steak house, being a bit stuffy having a dated menu, what we got was a really pleasant surprise. The decor is a bit dated but other than that it was an exceptional meal. Everything we at from the meze platter to the fillet on the bone was absolutely scrumptious. They have an amazing wine...

Excellent food, rapid unobtrusive and faultless service uncommon in a South African resto. Superb wines and an outstanding selection of (somewhat overpriced) single malt whiskeys. The waiter delivered the warm water I requested to bring out the full mellowness with aplomb. A memorable evening well worth repeating. See you next year guys!

The Grillhouse has been around for years in JHB and my family love going there, as does my husband for business meetings. The steaks are always done to perfection and the service is always good. Its expensive, but worth the little indulgence every now and then.

The service was professional and the food was delicious. The waiter was able to manage our rather 'fussy' requirements (gluten intolerance, citrus and lactose allergies). I would happily go back for a special occasion because, although on the pricey side, you can rely on both the quality of the food and service. I would recommend that you identify and book... More
