Fine Dining Steakhouse

One of my top 5 places to eat a steak in SA. They just know how to prepare a steak. Service have always been good. I can recommend this restaurant.

As a regular, who has always flown the flag for the Hussar I feel I am entitled to have a moan. I recently booked a table for lunch for 5 people, the service was very poor and worse whoever was in the kitchen could not cook! My medium steak was sent back the first time because it was very rare.... More

This restaurant has a good reputation for their meat dishes. I was not disappointed . I had an exquisite chocolate chilli chicken fillet. My guests were also impressed with their perfectly done steaks. The restaurant is also generous with their free snacks. The only reason why I have not rated it very good is that we had to wait some... More

We were staying in Stellenbosch and were walking around looking for somewhere to eat. We hadn't thought to book anywhere and many of the restaurants were full. It was a warm balmy evening with many people eating outside. We were very lucky to get a table at the Hussar Grill and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The food was simple with... More

One of the great steakhouses in South Africa! Again, good service, atmosphere! Prices are high but still in range with the quality!

New to this community, we stopped at the Grill as they had Hamburger Specials every Tuesday. There were three of us and we had 3 different hamburgers - all were done to perfection and they did not spare the garnishes, we requested. The fries were large but excellent and the burgers were huge - more than a meal. We returned... More

The Hussar Grill in Stellenbosch is one of these spots,that never disappointed us.In this cozy place you can get honest food(e.g.delicious steaks!good light meals,...)for very reasonable prices.If you like to combine this with some wine,several good wines are available by the glass.No 3haute cuisine",but simply good stuff!

My husband reserved a table earlier in the day and we got a really nice one outside. The restaurant was busy but we got wonderful service. Having read about the portion sizes we skipped starters (olives and crisps were complimentary) husband had fillet béarnaise and I chose the steak tatare - both were excellent. Complimentary dessert too. You wouldn't expect... More

It's hard to have a bad meal in South Africa. I enjoyed an outstanding rack of spare ribs on the patio at the back of this comfortable and homely restaurant and enjoyed my meal whilst I watched the passing parade of local folk. Service friendly and jovial too, and a great choice of top local wines, as one would expect... More

Always get a great steak here and at a good price. Restaurant is always full (booking recommended!) but they cope well. Staff are friendly and efficient.
