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! 

  • Proud stockist of Karan Beef – the ultimate global name in quality meat products
  • Our meat is expertly aged on the premises with our world-class butcher
  • We keep up to four tons of prime meat on site in our state of the art facility
  • New design restaurant seating up to 400 guests
  • Private dining venues each hosting between 20 and 30 guests; namely the Johnnie Walker VIP Room and The Glenfiddich Grill Room

  • Located on Nelson Mandela Square in the heart of Sandton, what was once a humble family owned and operated restaurant, has now become an icon of quality, style and customer satisfaction. Trumps Grillhouse and Butchery boasts modern and custom designed décor including an extensive wine cellar, age-old whiskey, and finest quality meat and function rooms for a more personal touch if needed. Now with the new Trumps butchery on site, you can take Trumps quality home with you as well, perfect for a good old, traditional South African braai or that special home-cooked meal.


    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.
