A Wealth of Good Taste in the heart of Sandton

Enjoy some of the best steaks in Johannesburg, peruse the extensive wine list or sip a signature cocktail in the centre of the city’s financial district.

Flowing onto the iconic new The Marc development and across from the Johannesburg Stock Exchange, The Bull Run is itself an icon of Sandton, the richest square mile in Africa.
Rub shoulders with the elite in this spacious, newly refurbished restaurant, as you sample a perfectly matured steak, enjoy a custom-designed gin and tonic from the renowned Dollar Bar, or feel the Maude Street bustle from a pavement table in the most dynamic precinct in the city.

Adjoining the historic Protea Hotel by Marriott® Johannesburg Balalaika Sandton, with a larger-than-life sculpted bronze bull outside, and a masculine, moneyed theme expressing this established eatery’s long history in the financial district, the Bull Run is effortlessly, yet affordably sumptuous. Trading hours from 11am until 10.30pm every day, it’s an oasis of welcoming, no-fuss culinary sophistication, at ground zero in South Africa’s beating commercial heart.
