This restaurant consistently provides top quality meals and service! I always ask for Charity as our server and I'm never disappointed. Any of the servers give professional and courteous service. The location is great.

The steaks we ate were delicious and we did not wait long for food. We were served by Daniel Tyson, a friendly, witty and extremely professional waiter. We warmly recommend dining at this restaurant.

Delicious lunch. Had the calamari and the kiddos had burgers. Enjoyed an array of appetizers as well including the delicious snails and springbok carpaccio! Highly recommend this place for lunch or dinner if you're ever in Nelson Mandela square!

The restaurant was quite busy when I came in - it was a Sunday lunchtime. Even so, the staff were excellent, giving me space to choose my order while being prompt to take it. A great margarita (and cocktails are not great everywhere) was followed...More

Yes children are allowed and the menu sits in the midrange price bracket for the locals. We round it a little cheap thanks to the Rand being week against the UK pound. 😉

Established in 1994, we have become a favorite amongst the locals and business people in and around the Sandton area. We've hosted many local and international guests— you may even spot local and international celebrities too. Trumps is popular with many tour operators and airlines; we are frequented by customers from British Airways, Qatar, Virgin, Lufthansa, and others. We are the number one seller of Karan Beef in Johannesburg and all our beef is aged on the premises in a cold room, for 21 days. What can our patrons expect? Affordability, consistency, excellent service and outstanding meals. We pride ourselves on being able to create the highest quality meals, all at affordable prices. We have an extensive menu that has taken years to develop. Our food can be described as top notch. At Trumps, "It's all about the meat." A variety of steaks, including Fillet, Rump, Sirloin, and Prime Rib are a must for meat lovers. Our famous BBQ ribs are another favorite amongst our customers. Otherwise we have a variety of seafood and chicken dishes to suit every customer's liking. With all the experience over the years and a great and competent team back and front of house, we have the ability to produce consistently excellent results, no matter how busy we may be. We have an extensive wine menu, to cater for all tastes. Our passion to bring new and exciting meals and wine to the world has driven us to source our wines from around the world. Our newly built cellar offers a host of local and international wines, impressive for even the most sophisticated palate. With a new in-house butchery opening at the end of October, many of our patrons will soon be able to take a piece of Trumps home with them. We have two Private rooms available for both corporate and personal functions. The Johnnie Walker Private Room, and our Glenfiddich Private Room. Whether it's a company meeting, year end, or even just a special occasion that needs to be celebrated, dine in comfort and style. Each room is customized to offer an experience worth remembering!
