I got served a large but bloodless and therefore tasteless steak. When I enquired, I was informed that it was probably just 'overaged'. Now, I understand that aging adds flavour but this was the first time hearing that it also causes so much blood to seep out that the steak ends up tasking like watery meat. My suspicion is that...

The consistency of brilliant service combined with scrumptious food is astounding. These are truly the best ribs you will ever eat. For starters I had fresh oysters - simply divine. They have varied selection of wines to suit any palate.

I have lost count of how many times I have visited the Grillhouse. The reason that they keep on getting me coming back is that they consistently deliver great food - meat in particular. If you are a vegetarian - they do offer some decent options, but it is the meat component that they excel at - in my opinion.... More

If you like meat, great place. Service more orientated versus the efficiency rather that the customer itself, but generally okay. Was there with a large group, everything was handled well. A little loud on the inside.

The Grillhouse was good and the steaks were very tasty. But we didn't think it was anything special compared to other restaurants in the area.

Having travelled extensively in the USA and Europe and loving steaks the Grillhouse is the gold standard for me to compare others against. Always consistent! Boerewors starter, Fillet on the bone, Roquefort salad and Malva pudding a must.

You can't go to Jo'burg and not have steak. The steak here is absolutely delicious. My colleague and I each had a huge meal and a beer for about USD$20 pp. Make a reservation if you can and if you can't then go early. The place is HUGE and it absolutely books out completely.

Great meat and great service. Was there for a business dinner with partners and had real good meat (fillet on the bone). I do recommend it.
