Trumps Grillhouse & Butchery has been regarded as one of the top steakhouses in Johannesburg since their launch in 1994. Owners and brothers Dennis and Allen command a loyal group of regulars. Expect a casual dining area with a timeless sophisticated feel that overlooks the iconic Nelson Mandela Square fountain, two separate dining rooms, a wine cellar, and a concept butchery.
The cuisine follows a blend of contemporary dining trends with the sharing plates to start, and a classic approach to cooking steaks perfectly. Steaks on offer include rump, sirloin, fillets, as well as South African Wagyu among others. Other must-try dishes include seafood, sushi, and flame-frilled burgers.
A well-cooked steak is not complete without a glass of bold red, or white if you prefer. The cellar at the iconic Nelson Mandela Square fountain is centered around a curated line of Proudly South African wines to complement any meal and occasion. Trumps Cellar is also the sole distributor of select wines such as the award-winning Le Bonheur Reserve range by William Wilkinson.

VIP dining rooms can be reserved for both lunch and dinnerw with a curated menu by the chef’s team or the standard set menu.
Trumps’ unique in-store butchery concept started in 2015 as a way to offer premium prime cuts as well as their delicious, secret recipe biltong to shoppers to try at home. They offer a personalised experience with a selection of the finest quality meat, A- grade, grain-fed Karan Beef carefully prepared and aged to perfection by the highly skilled on-site butcher.
