Just down the road from our accommodation this traditional grill is a great place for red meat and beer or wine. The meat quality and range is very good and it does what it says on the tin.

The steaks and game meats were some of the best that my husband and I have ever had. The portion sizes were also very big! It's not a trendy restaurant by any means but the food is delicious!

We've been here twice in the past 3 weeks and cannot fault the food, the service or the ambience. A very professional restaurant.

Believe everything you read about this restaurant as we had a wonderful meal here. My fillet steak was one of the best I have ever had and the chocolate vodka was also memorable.

This has to be the best restaurant in Camps Bay. The steaks were to die for, the Calamari starter was so good I nearly ordered another. What is also amazing is that you can take your own wine, which we did as we had a bottle of Shiraz left over and as this was our last night needed to drink... More

First time to eat at Hussar Camps Bay. Yes the restaurant is dated, but it gives atmosphere. We had the beef ribs (not on the menu, you have to ask for it). The ribs was very good, falling from the bone. Veggies really good and tasty. We had the lime sorbet and baked cheesecake. Best cheesecake I had in a... More
