I will Keep this short and sweet.

My second visit this month. I have tried a few but when it comes to steak this place should be number one and simply does not disappoint. A call out to Warren who did a fantastic and attentive job.

T Bone steak medium rare - better than ok Good

Rib Eye steak 550 g - medium rare - marvellous.

Fat B*** 2013 Pinotage - marvellous also.

Overall great night and really good food. These guys are better the Butchers Shop by far.

You just cannot go wrong with a visit to the Bull Run. The steak is to die for and sides are just must haves. Service is amazing and very professional. Try the ribeye on the bone!

I've been to this restaurant before on other trips to South Africa. The standard seems to have dropped, most notably in the variety of selection on the menu (I was looking at fish and shellfish that evening). Wines OK, service OK, price OK, but nothing particularly special.

I got there as it is associated with the hotel i were in. The menu is large and the plates are correctly served. Be very precise on the meat cooking level you need knowing that blue for them is already rare or medium rare for French! Avoid the terrasse near by the street.

Your comment on TripAdvisor refers. How wonderful that you enjoyed your meal with us. We have many foreign guests eating at our restaurant, so it is definitely advisable to speak to your waiter how you want your steak cooked to perfection.

We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

Well situated in Sandton this place serves incredibly excellent meat. We ate at the terrace and had a very nice time. The staff is friendly and service very good. Prices are very low. 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 expensive when it comes down to food.
