WOW!!!!!!!

I wish I could give it more than 5 stars. The service was amazing, the food just as good and the view even better. I really don't have anything bad to say. Thank you to management, Johan and the girl that has only been there for a week and a half ( sorry we forgot to get your name). You... read more

Nice and friendly staff, my mistake was my meal choice! I was told my mate to try the wild boar ribs, which i did. Disappointed I didn't have normal ribs but each to there own.

I have eaten at the Hussar a number of times over the years, and always regarded it as a solid, if somewhat old-fashioned restaurant. I had dinner here with my wife recently, and enjoyed a very good steak, at a reasonable price, and had no problems with the service or any other aspects of the evening. We arrived without a... More

Great place to eat close to Camps Bay. Simple, traditional decor, efficient staff and good menu. Hussar is, I believe, a chain of restaurants and I was surprised by the quality here. Clientele was a mix of locals and tourists. Menu is quite typical for South Africa; a mix of what we Europeans would consider quite 90's dishes such as... More

I have been to other Hussar branches, but heard that Camps Bay one is special. And it is true. Food is excellent in all of the restaurant, but Camps Bay restaurant gives you a special attention with manager being always on the floor and checking on guest all the time. It was very special when manager suggested not just food... More

It is hard to criticise the food at Hussar because it is just all very good. However I would recommend definitely the fillet on bone or the ostrich steak... Best I have ever had! Just an excellent restaurant all around.

We ate at the Hussar Grill on Camps Bay on the advice of our host at 3 on Camps Bay (just 2 or 3 minutes walk away). It was just as good as we we'd been promised it would be. The manager, Richard, is both passionate and knowledgeable about the menu - we loved his commitment and having eaten the... More

We ate here 4 times during our 16 day trip to Cape Town. The ,a aged, Lance, is awesome and accommodating. Once when the lights were off throughout Camps Bay, the restaurant was crowded and we were told there was no room. We turned to go and Lance called to us as we walked to our car to come back....

Impressed by two things. The difference in how steaks are served (steak with oysters, cheese and grain mustard sauce) and the wine selection. Service is friendly and good for a local standard.

The steaks were amazing and so delicious and the service was friendly but I didn't like that they wanted to clear away dishes before we had all finished. And then we were ignored so we left without deserts. But great ambience otherwise and well worth it for steak
