“Good food & wine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

We had been recommend the Hussar so went here for my wifes birthday. The food and wine was of a very high standard and the service friendly and good. Camps Bay is a wonderful place with a wonderful sea front, unfortunately the Hussar is away from great views.

“The place to go for steak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

This is a must if you enjoy your meat and steaks. Excellent quality, value for money and great service. The Hussar is a must whilst in Camps Bay.

“All around great experiences”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

First, the food was wonderful. We were staying very close by during our visit to Camps Bay, so we visited several times as our go-to place. The steaks were phenomenal, the wine list was great, and the warm olives were always a hit. When we were in the mood for seething lighter, we had the chicken sandwich, which was also great.

Now, what makes this restaurant stand out for us? When we arrived in camps bay, on our honeymoon, we had a problem with our hotel room. We were 2 hours late for our reservation (though we kept calling to keep them updated). As soon as we ordered, and were given free celebratory champagne, the hotel called to say they were sending a car to pick us up to give us a new room. The waitstaff packed up our meal to go, didn't charge us, and invited us back the next night when we were a bit less frazzled. We ate there several times and were welcomed by the staff each night.

This place really made our time in Cape Town. It was our first impression, and the staff made a really challenging night a whole lot better for us. After falling in love with the food, we couldn't stay away!

“Steak for Africa!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

If you enjoy quality meat, this one is for you! Good portion sizes of excellent meat, ribs, etc. Loved the vegetable dishes on the side - lovely touch. Varied wine list too. Perfect for a romantic date or for a gathering of friends.

“sorry we cannot agree this is no. 1 in Camps Bay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Unlike previous reviewers we found this restaurant just above average. True the steaks are good and certainly an improvement on our meat experiences in other Camps Bay restaurants but we didn't really take to the over smoky flavour. We prefer our steaks bbq'd but more naturally flavoured. The salad starters were food court quality. Service was not good (we never did get any water despite 3 times of asking) . We were also hustled for a bigger gratuity on leaving. We have had better experiences than this so cannot recommend.
