We went for a business lunch, everyone enjoyed their fish and steaks. My fillet on the bone was really good. We often had to look for the waiter, this needs attention.

One of the best steakhouses in SA if not the world. Menu excellent, vegan, fish and poultry also available, all really good - check out the specials! Starters & Deserts solid. Wine list and cellar as good as it gets! Atmosphere awesome, always busy, filled with the great, the good and everyone else. If you like steak and you are visiting JHB this is not to be missed.

Much vaunted by a colleague, who suggested this for a post meeting dinner, our meal was a bit disappointing - steak not cooked to order, vegetables overcooked, service was almost too quick and as a consequence we felt processed rather than looked after.

After two visits to the Grillhouse within two weeks, I guess I have a good idea about its capacities. Nice decor, good lay-out of restaurant, but lousy acoustics, due to the fact that there are only "solid" materials used in the restaurant and hardly any fabrics. To hold a conversation in the middle of the noise poses a challenge. The meat is very good, though not outstanding. Unless you order it otherwise, your steak comes drowned in a barbeque-sauce. Pitty.

Nice decor, decent service and brilliant steaks. Always order your steaks pepper crusted as the basted ones just spoil the taste of the meat. Onions rings would be the side of choice. My wife likes the fillet on the bone while I prefer the 300g fillet off-bone. Prices are extremely reasonable for the quality that you get.
