Description: A uniquely styled and award winning South African Steak House which has been an integral part of the Dubai Marina social scene since 2006. Located at the Lobby of the iconic Habtoor Grand Hotel; it all started with ‘Bambanani’ – African word meaning unity which is now an integral part of the concept that keeps the Grand Grill firmly rooted in the local community. Offering a wide selection of fresh, homemade South African dishes and specifically known for its large selection of well matured, international beef selections which offer rich flavours that can only be found in this high quality of meat. We also hold a variety of South African beverages including Castle Lager, Savannah Dry and a selection of South African wines. Proud to offer you a true South African Steakhouse experience.

We enjoyed a very nice evening at the Grand Grill. It is a South African steak restaurant that offers a wide menu that also includes chicken and fish.

The restaurant was relatively empty on the night we ate, but it was mid-week and the hotel lobby was being refurbished. Whilst the restaurant was quiet it did not affect the atmosphere or the service.

Ours scallops were cooked perfectly, as was our fillet steak that melted in your mouth. Our accompanying red wine was delicious. Sadly the menu is let down by its desserts. A dessert menu doesn’t exist, however a dessert platter is presented at the table. Most of the dessert options were slices of insipid processed types of cake whether it be chocolate or a cheesecake. Most were uninspiring, and the choice we made resulted in us referring to it as “a waste of calories”. The desserts wouldn’t deter me from returning, but it is an area of the menu that would benefit from some TLC.

Thank you for your review.
We are so happy that your visit to The Grand Grill was enjoyable even with the Hotel renovations.
Please accept our apology with regards to the dessert tray. We are currently re-inventing dessert's and inventing new ones. All very exciting! We are looking to launching our new dessert options very soon with Dessert Menu.
Thank you once again for your review and we look forward to your next visit.

A great place to relax in a typical South African style foodie delight, service and staff all great, food is meat orientated so if you love BBQ/Braai then you will love this spot

Unfortunately we dined on our last night in Dubai. Will make sure if we return to the hotel this will be our first evening meal.
Just make sure you do not eat lunch if going to dinner!
We have dined at various well known restaurants in England and would include this as one of the ---
MUST GO AGAIN!
Only downside is that we were outside due to the demand. Steaks to die for!
