Great meals and reasonably priced...the service was very friendly...if anything the portions were a bit big but we managed to eat it all because it was too good to leave

The bull run restaurant offers fabulous meat and venison plates combined with a wide range of excellent South African wines. Quality of the food is very high and prices are relatively low. Absolute value for your money. Make a reservation to secure a good spot.

My husband and I travel extensively to South Africa and for the past four visits stayed at the same local Sandton hotel. The Bull Run restaurant serves most of the guests staying at this hotel. It is conveniently located, it has a lovely friendly atmosphere and the staff are all knowledgeable of the food and superb selections of wines the restaurant serves.

On previous occasions, visiting the Sandton area, we spent many a night frequenting the various restaurants in the area, but can with confidence state that the Bull Run far exceeds most restaurants service and food quality. You also have a choice of outside seating, weather permitting.

We tried many and varied dishes on offer at the Bull Run and were never disappointed, whether it was the fabulous Avocado and Biltong starter or the succulent and cooked- to- perfection- Fillet. When away from home for lengthy periods, restaurant food becomes just another meal, but at the Bull Run we managed to even have a "home cooked meal" of Oxtail stew, which was absolutely fabulous!

A Big Thanks to Clive who always advised on the next best wine to try and to Victor, our server, who was always ready with a smile and a chat. Well done Management and staff of the Bull Run. Expect to see us again and again!
