In 1994 Nelson Mandela Square, then known as Sandton Square, opened its doors to the public and Trumps Restaurant was unveiled. For over 21 years Trumps has fed locals, tourists and celebrities alike, and in 2015 began a complete rebuild from the ground up. Two decades after opening as the original restaurant on the square, Denis, Allen and Michael Martin have evolved the Trumps Grillhouse restaurant into a new world class, fine dining destination – a Grillhouse, butchery and wine establishment second to none. It’s no coincidence that the Trumps Grillhouse logo is a bull in his prime - symbolising being the biggest and best at what we do…meat!
We source only the finest quality meat, A- grade, grain fed Karan Beef which our highly skilled and experienced on-site butcher carefully prepares and ages to perfection. Our beef and lamb melt in your mouth and our ribs are so tender they fall off the bone.
There is nothing better than pairing a fine meal with a sophisticated wine. We support “Proudly South African” and our wine cellar is stocked full of local wines to compliment any meal and occasion. A bottle of one of our premium selection is the perfect addition for a next level dining experience.
Be it Irish (Whiskey) or Scottish (Whisky), your preference in taste, age and complexity will be met with our selection. Our private dining rooms are each proudly sponsored by one of the exclusive whiskey brands we stock.
Since re-opening the new Trumps Grillhouse in mid-2015, we have introduced an in-store Butchery with prime cuts as well as our delicious, secret recipe biltong. Visiting the Trumps Butchery is a personalised experience reminiscent of the good old days. Bring in your cooler box for that weekend away and have it stocked up while you grab a steak or ribs in our restaurant. On the premises, open to the public.
