“Consistency Is The Key”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

After almost 20 years The Grillhouse still delivers time and time again! My favourite is Fillet On The Bone! Simply the best of a TBone steak, soft juicy fillet left to age on the bone... Take it Medium Rare and enjoy!

“Best steak in JNB”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

Whilst not being a particularly big consumer of red meat I do 2 to 3 times a year indulge and make a point of booking at the original Rosebank Grillhouse - over the past 15 odd years I am yet to leave feeling disappointed - food, service, wine all consistently impressive. My partner who is a vegetarian has absolutely no qualms in going to the Grillhouse where she is more than adequately catered for. Have tried the rest but this is without a doubt the best.

“Simply the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

Quite simply, this is the best steakhouse in Joburg, and possibly one of the best I have been to anywhere in the world. Book a private dining room if there are enough of you (around 8 should do) and the service gets even better than what is always exceptional care.
The meals are not the cheapest you will get in Joburg, but it is also not the most expensive. But if you're asking for good value, the quality should more than justify the expense.
Ask to be take to the wine cellar for specific choices not listed on the menu; this will make a big difference, if add a bit to the bill...
If you don't eat red meat, the choices are good in quality, but few in number.

“BEST STEAKHOUSE IN JOZI”

The Grillhouse never disappoints, consistently good food (especially the steaks and ribs), slick service and a wine cellar that is unexcelled!
