Introducing The Bull Run Restaurant

The Bull Run Restaurant, conveniently located opposite the Johannesburg Stock Exchange and a short walk from the Sandton CBD, Sandton City and Nelson Mandela Square, has a reputation as the business-lunch or dinner restaurant of choice. The subtle décor - raw brick walls and ambient lighting - and a menu that sets out the offerings in either Rands, Dollars, Pounds or Euros, ensures that the atmosphere is warm, relaxed and yet still conducive to any pre-dinner business dealings that may take place.

The Bull Run Restaurant is famed for our prime cuts of exquisite South African beef - stored and served via our own in-house butchery – and an extensive selection of the finest Cape wines. Situated in upmarket Sandton and near popular nightspots, the pulse, energy and vibe of the Bull Run caters for any occasiong.

When the business at hand turns to gastronomy, enjoy one of the Bull Run’s prime cuts of South African beef – direct from the in-house butchery - and speak to your waiter about a wine pairing from the extensive list of wines on offer. If you opt for a starter before your meal, you’ll be hard-pressed to choose from the extensive list, which includes Bull Run classics such as the Spicy Wors or smoked Springbok Carpaccio. The seafood selection is fresh and plentiful - oysters, mussels, calamari, linefish, prawns or crayfish – and chicken or ostrich complete the variety on offer.

While the Bull Run may be famed for its steaks, there is certainly no skimping on the vegetable offerings. Those opting for more herbivorous pleasures may enjoy a wide range of garden-fresh, unique salads – such as the Bull Run prawn ritz or smoked salmon and rosti salad – or opt for a purely vegetarian platter, curry, burger or pasta; with a variety of hot vegetables – such as honey baked butternut and creamed spinach – available on the side.

When the dinner deal is done, visit the Bull Run’s well-stocked bar and toast it with a tumbler of the finest whisky or cognac, accompanied by a cigar from the selection of finely-crafted, hand-rolled cigars.

And, if you have to communicate with your office, we have wi-fi throughout.
