Just popped in for a quick lunch but stayed an hour or more. Lovely wine by the glass (I had the Chenin) and mussels to die for. The dessert menu was incredible, but I resisted and just had a coffee. Very reasonable prices (of course the exchange rate helps) and great ambiance. Even the Muzak was a surprisingly unusual selection.

If you are looking for great steaks, wonderful ambiance and want to take your own wine without being charged corkage, you have arrived at the right place. The owner Craig is one of those people who remembers everyone's names. He trains his staff extremely well and the service - from management to waitrons - is excellent. You get olives, moist... More

The reviews are right, if you want a great steak, wonderful wine & friendly relaxed atmosphere this restaurant will tick all the right boxes. The steak really does melt on the tongue! Would highly recommend but beware, book first, it is so popular that they turned many customers away while we were eating, but I can understand why!

What makes this a restaurant you want to re-visit is that not only is the food excellent, one really feels as though you are getting value for money. There is no corkage charge so you can take your own wine and when you arrive you get a generous bowl of vege crisps and olives on your table. The steaks are... More

Went there for a casual dinner with friends. I had a steak which literally melted on my tongue. The pepper sauce was amazing. Finally the Malva Pudding was THE bomb! You should def pass by and the good thing, you can bring your own wine!

So it went wrong from first second! Got the wrong table!! But eureka what a service, new table was pulled out of the hat in seconds, and from then on, it was all beauty; service, food, wine, atmosphere & service again. Steak one of the five best since I started to " enjoy food "!

Hussar Grill is without a doubt my favourite restaurant. The steaks are always cooked precisely how you want them, the range of red meat options (incl. venison) is staggering. They do not charge corkage (ever), so this is the ideal place to take a nice bottle of wine you've been saving, and celebrate with an excellent meal. You can consistently... More

Went for dinner on Friday evening and must just say I have never been disappointed. Not only is the food very good, the service and customer care are excellent. Had the sirloin on the bone and can highly recommend it. Always a pleasure to have dinner there.

I can't help myself, I am in Stellenbosch regularly and this is one of my two favourite restaurants in the really lovely town. The ambiance would suit a business meeting or just with a few (or a few more!) friends. It features inside and outside dining and provides a blanket to keep warm if you choose to sit outside in...

The meat quality is quite exceptional,the veg is pretty good as well.The fact that they offer BYO,no charge,is fantastic,but not necessary with the wine list available.Well worth the visit.

Hi Nick F, Thanks for rating Hussar Grill Stellenbosch. There's no denying that a good steak should always be enjoyed with good wine, whether it's one off our winelist or one of your own. We do hope you'll visit our grillhouse again soon. Warm Regards, Hussar Grill More
