The moment you arrive, you are greeted by friendly staff ready to escourt you to your table. A signature mini bread us served with a selection of butter or margarine. The decor is warm and relaxing with a cosy fire place forchilly winter nights. The steaks are succulent and served just right as pef order.

Founders Grill is the best in the west. The management team always give you a warm welcome as soon as you enter the restaurant and you are seated right away. It cannot be beaten for atmosphere, friendliness, warmth, cleanliness, not to mention the friendly and knowledgable waitresses. The food and wine - there is an excellent choice, no matter what you chose. The food is well prepared and you never have to wait for longer than is necessary. Their steaks are mouthwatering and the flavours are fantastic. You always leave looking forward to the next time and the next time cannot come sooner.

It had been years since I had been to Founders. I had no idea if their excellent reputation was going to be like many restaurants open for the time Founders has - quality dismissed over time. Well, we needn't have worried - six of us went and all six declared our food to be some of the best we've had. Our steaks were positively melt-it-the-mouth. Their menu is really varied and they offer some really yummy options you don't get other places, like having Camembert and Brie toppings as an option for your steaks. The service was good. I cannot recommend it enough!!

Founders grill has excellent food, especially their lamb.
Good food selection and some nice wines.

Restaurant has lots of foundry tools and implements on walls to create unique character.

Only negative is crossing a busy road on a bend to get to the car park.

Founders is a fantastic find. Old fashioned steak house with the best service I have found in Joburg. The waiters are excellent. Friendly, courteous and nothing is too much trouble. The food is not particularly imaginative and it is expensive for what you get, but the service is worth it.

Something that needs urgent attention though is the total disregard for smoking legislation. This really is a sever issue and I hope they fix it soon.
