After about 10 years I returned to this restaurant. The food is still really excellent, the fillet is as tender as it can be and the staff is very friendly.

Have eaten here with friends twice in the last 3 days. Great steak and kingclip. Wine is reasonably priced. Much to recommend. One slight minus is the construction work ongoing next door which means that dining outside on the terrace is not as peaceful as in times past

Brilliant food, excellent service and good menu - you can always find what you like on the menu, even as a vegetarian in a meat restaurant - meat of course is a standard - I usually take several starters for dinner since a large piece of meat with spuds is too heavy - I deplore their mash potatoes are not...

the Butchers Shop which I went to the previous day. The meal the the Bull Run was very good and a different (in a good way!) menu but it just missed out on some minor things. The waiter was great in asking how long I would like before serving my main course but then doing so twice as long as... More

In a typical steakhouse atmosphere, the dish chosen was the fillet. The quality of meat is excellent at Bull Run and preparation just like we asked. Perfect. I recommend.

I went to Bull Run after many years and was expecting a nice experience. Everything was fine though: the dinner, restaurant, music, etc. however, the waiter was behaving weird from the beginning of the evening. We were a big group of people, hosted by a hotel nearby, and most of the time going for dinner in that area. We asked... More

Dear ‘TripAdvisor Member’. Thank you for taking the time to write on ‘tripadvisor’. It is of a great concern to hear of such 'weird' behaviour of one of our waiters. Did you speak to a manager that was working that evening? Please could you e-mail either Liza or Christina (info@thebullrun.co.za) with your contact details, as they would very much like... More

This is my third, and most likely last, visit to The Bull Run. The last time I was here, almost 2 years ago, I complained that my medium rare steak was delivered well done. Unfortunately, once again tonight, the same thing has happened. Not a trace of red or pink in the meat. *sigh*. This is a steak restaurant, surely... More

In the begining I was reading not too good reviews from people from JoBurg. It's normal to expect more in a restaurant by your city. However I know plenty of steakhouses in Sao Paulo and Buenos Aires and I can tell I had a great experience with their food. Meat was cooked the way I wanted, with right salt level.... More
