At very short notice our hotel (O On Kloof) got us a dinner reservation at Hussar. The restaurant is off the main Camps Bay strip with plenty of parking across the street. The restaurant was packed with great atmosphere. We were led to our table (for 2) right to the very back of the premises (not great). However once we... More

Hi Halfkel, I would like to apologise for what was evidently poor service on our behalf. We usually strive for service excellence in every aspect, at all times and it is very disappointing to hear that this was not the case on the evening you dined with us. I would really appreciate it if you would be so kind as... More

returned again to find the excellent service and atmosphere to have been maintained .our favorite restaurant for beef although one of our party had fish and were a little disappointed . side salad was very basic and with a little imagination and a nice vinaigrette would have complimented the meal. otherwise a super evening

Wonderful food, do try the carpaccio of springbok, amazing flavour followed by beautiful tender steak. Advise booking as popular with visitors and locals making for a good atmosphere with attentive staff and good wine.

We have eaten at this restaurant many times and it is always a fantastic experience. The steaks are wonderful and the beef ribs are just amazing. The staff are courteous and friendly - we will go back again when we re-visit Camps Bay.
