An outstanding venue. From the hostess at the front door till the departure with bones for my dogs, everything was professional and worth every cent spent. Our meals were great, my medium rare fillet was exactly that and my wifes kebab was yummy (she says). Not a budget restaurant but with tons of ambiance and great food this is a... More

We were part of a group of about 25 people and were accomodated in a private room that was perfect for us. The waitstaff could not have been any better. We ordered a number of appetizers including excellent grilled calamari and chicken drumettes that were presented in a zesty sauce that everyone enjoyed. Most of our group ordered steaks, but...

The Grillhouse Rosebank is always somewhere we love to take friends and family who are visiting from out of town. It impressed all with wonderfully tender steak all round, amazing service where the waiter is there when you need him and discreetly absent when you don't. We chose a reasonably but gorgeous wine from the cellar (R300 - Springfield Berry)... More

My wife and I returned to the Grillhouse for a special dinner. We had requested a booth in a particular area of the restaurant - they accommodated us well. The service was excellent. I was pleased with the improved depth of the standard wine list and also the chance to browse the cellar which was also well stocked with old... More

I love coming here. Every now and again all you need is a really well cooked steak, and this is the place to get it. Their butternut soup is also really delicious. The hardest thing at The Grillhouse is to NOT eat the bread they provide, which is really yummy. Always reliable, though the ambience of you are unlucky enough... More

If you are a steak connoisseur and not been at this restaurant that ensures fine dining combined with great cuisine, you are missing out! The restaurant is deffininately on my top 5 list. Currently have friends from Scotland visiting and we have returned to The Grillhluse twice already without being disappointed.

I went back to this restaurant after many years. What a fantastic atmosphere. The restaurant was full and we were allocated a table outside unfortunately. We did go to the bar for pre drinks so saw the inside. This restaurant specialises in steaks and scotch!(see the pic). Clearly a place where wealthy businessmen hangout (like me). My rump on the...

I visited the Grillhouse yesterday, and enjoyed a brilliant springbok steak, spiced with cracked pepper and grilled to medium rare perfection. This restaurant is fairly pricey, but perfection is not cheap! Extensive winelist and expert staff. Highly recommended!

We went here for the steaks and the BBQ chicken. It was cooked to perfection and the chicken was very tasty. However, although the steak was very skillfully cooked, it was significantly lacking in flavour. That's not the chef's fault, it's just that South African beef is much more bland than Irish beef. That's just a consequence of the climate... More
