I paid for three people what I pay for 1 in Dubai; 1 dish each and 2 beers each. But I was told South-Africa is far from... More

Took dinner here on first night in Joburg after a flight from London. The restaurant provided an excellent welcome to South Africa. Tender steak and excellent wine. Would happily stay again if the opportunity was presented.

Gets good ratings for the quality of food. Service was OK, but the Bill had additional items that weren't purchased and the dessert order was mixed up. However, steak was cooked to perfection!

Bull Run is a nice sized restaurant with with ability to eat outside in their garden. The food was pretty decent and a good price. I would say the steaks are better than the more famous local steak places. I will be returning

Dropped in for dinner while staying at the Protea Balalaika hotel. The staff was friendly and professional. Chose the Ribeye on bone, medium rare. The meat was a full 550g-enough for me for 2 days...no chance to finish it. The cream spinach on the side was delicious. The meat had some chewy bits, expected a bit softer and juicier. Grilled...
