Wow ... if you like a good steak, and you're near Sandton, do try this one - great food, great ambiance and very friendly staff. Beef is definitely their forte although they do some pretty mean non-meat dishes too!

Had dinner here twice in Oct 2011 - Wed and Sun. Price is reasonable at about US$30-40 per pax for steak (Fillet, Rib Eye) and starters (salad, escargot). Service is good and efficient. Food varies depending on how crowded the place is. When we ate...More

We ate at the Bull Run on our 1st 2 nights in South Africa, having stayed at the adjoining hotel. The fillet was superb. One time my wife had the rump steak, which was so-so. Heaping, well-done sides and desserts. Excellent service. Excellent wine selection....More

Very good and tasty Steaks and Prawns. No special tasty spices, but very good quality of fisch and meat. Ambience is OK

One of my favourite restaurants in the world. The steaks are to die for. Melt in the mouth. Also amazing is the cream spinach and Dom Pedros. The service can be a little slow but worth the wait for the food!

I went to the Bull Run few days ago. The meat is excellent, other meals are regular. Quiet atmosphere, service efficient but quite slow. Quite surprising, the restaurant was a bit empty on a sat. night...?
