Very nice and cozy restaurant, with friendly staff and fast service. But I had expected more of the food and a bit more input from staff on the wines. Steak was lukewarm when served, which the staff immediately fixed and also compensated with a complimentary (delicious) dessert, but still... Lots more potential both on flavors and presentation. Overall, a safe... More

After reading rave reviews we went to Hussar Grill for a family get together, seven of us in all. The menu is great and there is something for everyone. Allowing no corkage fee is great and does save on a big bill. None of us had starters, but all had main and desserts. The grilled calamari ordered was insipid and... More

Was able to get a last minute booking for two on an ordinary Wednesday night and glad we took it. Starters were Calamari for Madame and snails for Monsignor. Both were great. Main courses were rump and sirloin steaks with pepper and blue cheese sauce respectively. Both were well received. Waitrons were training new waitrons, so getting attention now and... More

Nothing better than a pure quality piece of South African meat, and Hussar Grill does it best. The food was of a excellent standard and service was great

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!
