Hurray for Hussar

We pre-booked and received a lovely table outside the general bustle. The service was good without being overly hovering. The sherry and small bowls of quality nibbles upon arrival is such a lovely touch. All four of us had excellent meals. The generous choc vodka apres-lunch make guests want to... read more

Like other contributors we had terrible service and although we told the one waitress several times that we had waited too long she only said sorry. We waited too long for a menu, for a drink, for a starter and our steaks. No offer of a complimentary drink or any explanation. We were seated outside and like others we were... More

This place is simply great. The steaks (beef and game that we tried) were fantastic. Large, tasty cuts which were cooked exactly as requested. The standard is generally very high in South Africa but this is as good as I’ve seen for a steakhouse. The fact that they let you bring your own wine in with no corkage (they even... More

We made a reservation and got there on time. When we got there they told us we had to wait "5 minutes" so we drank something at the bar. After half an hour we asked again if we could get a table and they told us they were going to look for one. We saw that there were 2 tables... More

We had a similar experience to most of the other reviewers. We booked with a large group and it took over an hour for our food to arrive. The drinks service wasnt much better. The restaurant was packed, clearly the kitchen was over-whelmed, and it's therefor understandable that there may be a bit of a wait. What was lacking was... More

We booked here because it was recommended as the best steak anywhere in SA. Our table was outside in the courtyard which proved to be rather noisy with street buskers regularly playing and then passing through the tables asking for money. The food, when it arrived, was truly delicious and the hype over the quality of the steak was well... More

The Hussar Grill in Stellenbosch is tucked away up one of the town’s attractive side-streets, on the edge of a small stream that seems to flow whatever the season. Its tables are located both inside and outside, attractively scattered around and along the water’s edge. There didn’t appear to be any “meet-and-greet” person, so we told a passing waitress that...

2 hours to wait for the main dish; wine bottle without ice cooler and glasses were filled without chance to try in advance; fillet was not as order (we got medium-well done instead of medium-raw)
