The Grillhouse

The Grillhouse is fantastic and right next to the hotel and is about a 1 minute walk from the reception of the hotel you must book if possible as it is very busy

WOW what a steak. We ate here last night with colleagues and the food was second to none. Service was excellent, setting spot on, but the food was fabulous. I would recommend the sirloin on the bone, perfection!

Standard steakhouse. The starters were very good. The steaks were cooked perfectly (they tend to over cook in SoAf so if you want medium rare ask for rare). The ostrich was a little tough and it had waaaay too much pepper but that was kind of my fault since it comes two ways and I got it with pepper by... More

Would love to have found something wrong here, but just not possible, as of the waiters and bar staff actually enjoy and take pride in thief jersey b, something them garment should take pride in....

While this falls into the same family as the Sandton one, the Rosebank one does not do it as well. The overall experience is a lesser one from your welcome at the door, to the staff to the food itself (although prices are the same resulting in what I feel to be a lesser value for money). If you've gone... More

The Grillhouse offers excellent steaks and enough on the menu to satisfy non red meat eaters. There is a wide selection of sauces to choose from. The quality of the food is excellent, all steaks around the table were prepared as requested and delicious. My chicken kebabs were tender and tasty and not overcooked. The chips appear to be hand...

We booked a private dining room for 15 guests for a special family occasion. The food all came out of all courses at the same time, was hot and everyone agreed that their food was really good. The service was faultless. I would definitely go back. Their seafood is worth having!!
