“Worth the trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Definitely the best of the three steak restaurants I have been to in Johannesburg and for a reasonable price. Had the 700g bone in rib-eye and really enjoyed. Fiancé had the fillet and it was incredibly tender. The tour of the kitchen and explanation about the different types of meat was a plus. Wine list and dessert were great too. Overall, wonderful experience!

“Supreme steak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

I've never had anything less than a superb meal in this restaurant.

The steaks are the best you will taste anywhere in the world and the service is always excellent.

Do yourself a favour, next time you're in Johannesburg come and sample food as it should be.

“I Want to Become a Regular”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

Steve is the amazing host of this simple, comfortable venue that offers great food. Their main focus is meat, you can get it grass fed or free range. Interesting thing about the Local Grill, their meat is halaal. On your first visit, Steve will take you on a tour of "the kitchen" where they offer a Beef Appreciation Class. It's really a place you'd like to visit on a regular basis. And if you're lucky, you might spot Reza Muhammad dining there too!

I was taken on a tour of the maturing of meat whilst waiting for the starter, The best beef I have ever eaten. The atmosphere was homely and yet ambient with flavour.
