“Yummie!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

The Bull Run does not just offer superb service but very tasty food. The waiters listen to what you want and the chef prepares everything to perfections. Alot of times I find when you ask for your steak "blue" you get it back medium rare. The food and experience at the bull run is excellent.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014 via mobile

Enjoyed the ambiance on the outside veranda but we found the cost of drinks way way WAY too expensive.

“A must visit when in the Sandton area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2014

You can't go wrong here. The mushroom starter with feta cheese and spinach is a meal in itself and the steaks are always good. I ate here two nights on the trot on a trip last month and I'm jo'burg bound in a few days time again so I'm sure I'll be back again. It's nice to have the odd temptation such as ostrich thrown at you with the specials so I'm wondering what will be on offer this weekend. A nice restaurant with a good ambience and the staff are always friendly. A must recommend to anybody in the sandton area.

“Awesome Steak, great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014 via mobile

Went there on a Monday afternoon, while the sun was coming down. We were sat on a table outside, just next to a buzzing but not disturbing main road. The service was swift and had good knowledge of the menu and proposed two entrees we directly went for. The oysters and the springbock carpacio. Do not miss out on the spring bock carpaccio, it is heaven in your mouth. As a main we went for a fillet steak with wedges and cream spinach on the side. The steak was grilled to perfection and fresh as ever with a migrated german butcher cutting up the meat. The wedges were crip on the outside and soft on the inside, and the cream spinache offered the perfect round up to a wonderful meal. As a desert try the wild berry creme brule, to die for. A must visit for anyone in Sandton
