A work group (always difficult to accommodate!) ate at Trumps. Besides the 'bendoverbackwards' service from Fifi and her staff, the steaks and starters were divine! I will be back, again and again!!

Locatded in Nelson Mandela Square this restaurant has a lot to offer. Fresh cuts of meat, juicy and tender. I had the rump steak as recommended by our waiter Johanis, he was more than willing to help and was always around our table although the restaurant was full. In fact all staff looked happy and the service provided was great.... More

Outstanding stakes at Republic Prices - beautiful and tasty. A treat the kids 11 and 13 want to delay going back to Australia for!

The four of us were more than satisfied. The game of the day was springbok, soft, delicious meat. If you order the ribs plan to share, even the half rack was too much for one.

Food is pricey but lovely. I can recommend the burgers, chips and salad for lunch. Service was on the ball. Maybe some background music?

We went in a group of four and were greeted warmly. We all ordered different items from the dinner menu and they were all great, including a veggie dish. The location is excellent as well.

In an excellent location we went expecting a lot! Trumps met our expectations! We had a lovely view over Mandela square matched with friendly and efficient staff. Across South Africa we had mixed quality of service, but this definitely was up there with the best. The food was brilliant and our meat was cooked to perfection. My wife was pregnant... More

Same as their competitor teh Butcher shop, they enjoy a great location to serve mediocre food to tourists. Service was excellent which has compensated a bit. Portion are very large, but not the quality which you are expecting.

It is a very big restaurant facing Nelson Mandela square. I had a very tasty tuna steak and my husband a huge portion of chicken. It is a modern, trendy restaurant with a good choice meat and fish. Very affordable for the food you get. Kind and professional staff. Strongly recommended.

Description
Established in 1994, we have become a favorite amongst the locals and business people in and around the Sandton area. We've hosted many local and international guests— you may even spot local and international celebrities too. Trumps is popular with many tour operators and airlines; we are frequented by customers from British Airways, Qatar, Virgin, Lufthansa, and others. We are the number one seller of Karan Beef in Johannesburg and all our beef is aged on the premises in a cold room, for 21 days.

What can our patrons expect?

Affordability, consistency, excellent service and outstanding meals. We pride ourselves on being able to create the highest quality meals, all at affordable prices. We have an extensive menu that has taken years to develop.
Our food can be described as top notch. At Trumps, "It's all about the meat." A variety of steaks, including Fillet, Rump, Sirloin, and Prime Rib are a must for meat lovers. Our famous BBQ ribs are another favorite amongst our customers. Otherwise we have a variety of seafood and chicken dishes to suit every customer's liking.

With all the experience over the years and a great and competent team back and front of house, we have the ability to produce consistently excellent results, no matter how busy we may be.

We have an extensive wine menu, to cater for all tastes. Our passion to bring new and exciting meals and wine to the world has driven us to source our wines from around the world. Our newly built cellar offers a host of local and international wines, impressive for even the most sophisticated palate. With a new in-house butchery opening at the end of October, many of our patrons will soon be able to take a piece of Trumps home with them.

We have two Private rooms available for both corporate and personal functions. The Johnnie Walker Private Room, and our Glenfiddich Private Room. Whether it's a company meeting, year end, or even just a special occasion that needs to be celebrated, dine in comfort and style. Each room is customized to offer an experience worth remembering!
