“Meat eaters delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

I've been a big fan of the Hussar Grill for a number of years and dinner last night lived up to my expectations yet again. everyhing out of the kitchen is always great, it was ribs the whole way round last night but the steaks, lamb shank and any cut I've ever tired have always been top notch.
Keep up the good work and well definetily be back soon!

“Allways a good experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Going to a restaurant once could give you the wrong impression but when you have been several time over a period of years and each you get the same great feeling, then you know it's a nice place!

“Great steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Be prepared to pay for good food and wine. This is the second time I have been to this restaurant on trips to cape Town. The food has not disappointed. My only complaint would be that it is a bit cramped and depending where you sit you are always bumping into other diners.

“ONLY GO HERE FOR STEAK”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

A visit to the Hussar is always an experience to be savoured. The biggest problem is what to eat, as just reading the menu makes your mouth water. Other than their home specialities and sauce steaks, you must try the fillet on the bone. What also intrigues me is the fact that you can bring your own bottle of wine. I think they should allow 1 bottle for every two people otherwise they wont be able to turn their stock. The doorman is excellent and makes your arrival feel like VIP. If you did not know that you were in Cape Town, you could easily think that you are in New York.
