The Grillhouse has a vast selection of wines and fine malts. It is advised for customers to spend a little time in the wine cellar to understand what’s on offer, or to relax at the hand-crafted bar while casting their eyes over the extensive malt selection.

Tips top choose great cuts

Quality beef ?Look for beef that is firm and slightly moist with a fresh red colour. It should be well marbled with fat, but don’t judge the quality of the beef by the colour of the fat itself. Some ground beef might be brown or turning brownish. Rather opt for beef that is red throughout.

Quality veal? Look for veal meat that is greyish pink, and has a firm texture with very little fat and no marbling. The bones should be soft, red and porous.

Quality lamb Choose lamb that is fine-textured, firm and lean. It should be pink and cross sections of the bones should be red, moist and porous. The external fat should be firm, white and not too thick.

Grillhouse grillers

Without one dedicated chef, The Grillhouse prides itself on having a team of highly trained and skilled grillers, chefs and assistant cooks. The staff turnover is low - some staff have about 17 years of experience with the restaurant. Clientèle includes local and international diners and the kitchen is often faced with a busy turnover and hungry diners’ demands. With a need to produce high quality meals, the team is trained on a regular basis.
