While visiting from the USA for the holiday, we had a fantastic experience at Melrose Grill House! The food was delicious, and my perfectly cooked lamb chop melted in my mouth. My husband enjoyed his steak as well. The decor was a vibe and restaurant...was very clean! The attentive staff took great care of our party of 11, making it one of our best meals while visiting Johannesburg!More

First impressions very good. Attentive staff and a very good starter of snails. Main course was a totally different story. Wife ordered a steak platter, medium rare and I had T bone medium rare. All came. As expected but upon eating the wife’s steak was...overcooked and my steak was was so young that you couldn’t chew it. Both complained and my meal was changed completely and the wife’s steak was changed. When new t bone arrived all seemed ok at first, but upon eating further in it was just as chewy and hard to cut as the first one. All other aspects of the meal were lovely but even the wife’s second steak was massively undercooked second time. Even the waiting staffs attitude changed upon complaint. Wouldn’t return here as had better steaks in lesser restaurants locally.More

We were staying at Marriott Melrose and walked out to Grillhouse for dinner one night. Restaurant was very busy and we were lucky to get a table for 2 people. Excellent meal, we both had steak which was just wonderful and cooked exactly is we...both requested. A good (reasonable cost) red wine recommendation from the waiter was great Great experience and excellent service. A very safe and comfortable environmentMore

Visiting from Australia. Usually go to Rosebank Grillhouse when we visit but thought we’d try Melrose Arch. We were not disappointed. Same excellent service and quality of food. Nice to be able to sit outside.

Wonderful experience overall. Sharni is right on top of her game. She runs a very tight ship and the staff all reflect her attitude Will definitely be back soon

We had an end-of-conference dinner at the Grillhouse Melrose Arch. It was FABULOUS. The team were so helpful in planning and booking a private space in advance of the dinner, and very (very) understanding when our numbers changed at the last minute. The private room...on the top floor was a great space, with 2 large tables. The set menus had delicious options, and the service was top notch, especially given how our group moved around, and people were ducking in and out. Really the shining star was the service: Thabo, Anele and Kyle were so helpful and attentive. Thanks so much to the team, and the staff that we didn't interact with directly (chefs, bartenders, front of house, etc).More

The Grillhouse at Melrose Arch is a nice restaurant with a great and fast service. The menu has a very good variety for meat eater and non meat lovers. The wine options are quite good as well.

Melrose Arch is obviously the place to eat. Sadly every restaurant /bar seems to be a chain and lacking any history or character. The Grillhouse was recommended by the Marriot and we had perfectly adequate meal. We shared very tasty chicken livers and sensational springbok...Carpaccio for starters. My ostrich steak was delicious and my husbands T-bone was tough and overcooked. Dessert was goat's cheese cigars which needed more honey and nuts. The Vergelegen was R370 and a tad expensive for what it was. Overall a mixed experience.More

My friends rib eye steak was very delicious....I enjoyed the oxtail dish I ordered - except I thought there were more bones and fat than what I’m used to - for oxtails Overall A solid mealMore
