Food
There is no guessing why the Grillhouse in Rosebank is an award-winning restaurant: it lets its food do the talking.

As soon as you’re seated, you get a complimentary warm, freshly baked bun as peruse through its menu.

Starter options include a biltong bucket, butternut soup, grilled calamari, chicken livers, and mussels. They also serve chicken, seafood, Grillhouse, and vegetarian platters.

For mains, the steak grills come either basted or spiced. Cuts include rump, New York sirloin, and fillet. There’s also rib eye, beef kebabs, saddle lamb cutlets, beef ribs, ostrich medallions, and venison. There are plenty of sauces from which to choose: peri peri, pepper, mushroom monkeygland, cheese, and mustard.

Side dishes include, among a long list of others, pap and chakalaka, creamed spinach, boerewors, and seasonal veggies.

The fresh garden salad lived up to its name, while the rump went down well with a class of Shiraz. The hot chocolate brownie, which comes with ice cream, ensured the dining experience ended on a sweet note.

Drink
You name it, they have it: from wines and beers, to cold drinks and warm beverages. Every taste is catered for.

Service
It is excellent. Staff put their best foot forward at all times. They don’t make a fuss about bookings. It is, however, advisable to book a table ahead of time. Otherwise, the bar area will do.

Ambience
Although formal, it is accessible, relaxed and family friendly.

Best for...
Satisfying a meat craving.

  • The Grillhouse is a sophisticated dining experience. All the cuts of meat are tasty. Personal favourite being the fillet. Efficient service and lots of wine!
