“What a great find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

A three block from 54 on Bath Hotes & was a safe walk. Every item was perfect from steak to dessert and wine - wife and I actually ate there twice first week of June. We had found restaurant om tripadviser and found it to better than advertised. Service great and bill with tip 5800R = less than $60.00 USD would be better than $200.00 USD

“Very good restaurant and good price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014 via mobile

The Grillhouse is a steak house with a wide menu of salads, ribs, burgers and steaks. We had two adults and two kids 8 and 11. Total meal with a salad, appetizer, 2 drinks and main coarses was only $65, about 1/2 the cost of the same meal in the usa. Kids were happy with food. Beef and burger were very good, spare ribs good but not a lot of meat on bone and the meat doesn't fall if the bone. Attached to mall and Hyatt, great choice with family if staying at the Hyatt.

“lost some of its charm”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

Still a very good steak house even if to crowded for my taste. Steaks are nice as they always have been but some of the other steak houses in this city have found better ways to get customers to eat in there restaurant , such as providing you quality beef from a certain region or farm and guaranteed naturally fed beef ( i am not writing that this is not the case here in the grill house but maybe being so successful made management not realize we have competition maybe we need to change or try and improve ). For me this restaurant remains a very good place to enjoy a nice piece of meat , even if it has become far more expensive then other similar places but is surely not for me nr 1 steak house in johannesburg as it used to be.

“Doesn't get much better than this”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

I have been to this restaurant a few times and still cannot put my finger on any issue. Great service and even better food. The steaks are heavenly and the wine list pretty close.

“Very good value for steak and wine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

On our last trip to Jozi, we ate here three nights in a row. It was good each night. The groups we where with all ejoyed there steaks each night. However, we where really disapointed with the Ribs ( not a good choice, not slow cooked, so they were still tough, and not great flavour).

Very please with wine list and the cellar. Good choices, and bit of good fun to run through the choices. The cellar had very reasonable mark ups.
