If you are looking for a good meal when visiting Mandela Square, then visit Trumps. Superb wine and delicious Steaks. Definitely gives the Bull Run some competition. This was my first visit. I will return when I am next on business in the area.

It was busy when we arrived so we had to wait for a table. While waiting we were given a complimentary glass of very tasty red wine - how civilised. We went for ostrich and springbok. Both meals were superb. The service was excellent. I...More

This restaurant came in handy for a "steak hunter" in this area when Butcher shop was closed for renovation. It has a more "American steak house" feel than Butcher shop, but the steaks are very close to compete. Their menu is more modern and thereby...More

Deafeningly loud. My wife and I could barely hear each other. Maybe it was only due to the 2 birthday parties, or maybe it’s always like that. Regardless, the steaks were amazingly good. Our server recommended a bottle of wine that turned out to be...More

No not at all. It was established 23 years ago by 3 brothers that were Into Jazz and called themselves the trumpeters. When we opened the restaurant we called it Trumps.

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!
