This place has a really nice outdoor seating area (as well as indoor seating) and is very comfortable. The staff were lovely and showed the perfect level of attentiveness, checking on me but allowing me to enjoy my food and wine in peace. The food was really out of this world. I had the 300g fillet with a pepper crust and it was so so tender. The seasonal vegetables were cooked with really nice spices and were so delicious. This place has a quite extensive wine menu, and an even more extensive whiskey menu. I had a lovely dining experience here and would definitely go back!

The fire lamps outside and inside can attract anyone to take a look and then you're hooked! It is a beautiful restaurant with a great menu and wine list and a tremendous professional staff. There are many excellent choices for starters and main courses and I think you will be pleased with whatever you choose. Fabulous selection of meats and cuts to choose from. I had a mini meze which is large to start, excellent grilled rib lamb chops and perhaps the best creamed spinach ever. Sampled a couple of wines with the meal and had no room for dessert! They also have a great selection of after dinner drinks, especially single malts.. I would put this place up against any steak house.

Four of us sat outside on a lovely August evening with heaters doing their job. A New York sirloin was excellent, a T-bone was tasty and two plain burgers were spot on. I would highly recommend the Grillhouse for some of the best meat in town.

Wow! Loved all of it!! Mom and I are on vacation and staying at the hotel about a block away. So glad we came here! Super awesome food! I can not say enough! We started with shrimp cocktail and mini meze (humus appetizer). Both so good but the mini meze was TO DIE FOR!! Then dinner crazy good!!! I had a 300 gram filet (pepper crusted) with a side of onion strings and the creamy garlic sauce. There is no way that filet was only 300 grams! It was huge and melted in my mouth! Never had a piece of meat that good! My mom had the chicken kebab with a huge size of grilled veggies-again...WOW! Everything was outstanding and I would recommend to anyone!! To top it off our waiter (Sikile) was great too! Very friendly!

This steak is so melt in the mouth, you could use a spoon (or even a straw!) to eat it. Just incredible. Awesome flavour and texture and so perfectly cooked. The review at the entrance says that it is the best steakhouse in Africa. Well I couldn’t testify to that, but it is an amazing steakhouse for sure. The red wines are also exceptional and the desserts large and tasty. Highly recommended as a destination restaurant for a special occasion or business dinner.

If you want a well prepared barbequed piece of lamb, then the Grillhouse should be where you go to. I always have the lamb saddle and have never been disappointed. Not to mention the freshly baked bread which is served before your meal is amazing. Our company has most of it's lunch functions there because of the tasty food, the fabulous service and the convenience of being close to our offices.

The Grillhouse is not your average steakhouse joint. It is a classy high quality eatery with style. It is very popular and a reservation will avoid disappointment. The ambiance is great, with just the right balance between the buzz of people and music to still maintain a conversation. The menu caters for every taste, but I can recommend the meat dishes. Do not let the very tasty pre-order, freshly baked bread distract you too much. Leave some room for the main course. The steaks are highly recommended. Service was efficient and courteous. An unfortunate mistake with the bill was rectified immediately without any fuss. I cannot wait to go there again!

My beef was fabulous, cooked to perfection and so tender it could be cut with the back of my knife. Prices are very good, wine list is also large and reasonable. Much more “Old School” than both it’s sister restaurants in Sandton and Melrose Arch. Highly recommended with free entrance to Katzy’s next door to allow you to dance off some of the calories consumed. Delicious and highly recommended.

What a good place for a steak! All 6 of us had excellent steaks and all had different versions. Views out from their restaurant are amazing - go at sunset!

A few colleagues from work decided to have lunch at the Grillhouse. We were seated with a view over the Western side of Sandton. We shared grilled halloumi and a Greek salad. The halloumi was superb. My main meal was the pork ribs, which were really very good. My colleagues had a variety of main courses and everyone enjoyed theirs. the service was very good.

My friend and I often come to The Grillhouse Sandton (11 Alice Lane) and we just love the food, atmosphere and premium location. The steaks and beef ribs are the best. Infact this is the best place for a really good steak.

Office function for 18. Waiters handled all our orders very efficiently and with minimal confusion. View across Sandton at sunset is lovely. Perfect evening for dinner outside, even though table was reserved inside. Great vegetarian option and steaks were all we prepared and tasty. Cards accepted.
