“Disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

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 white, it looked like it had been boiled. My mother in law didn't want to make a fuss, so she ate some of it, but it was our treat and we hadn't seen her in two years, so found this really disappointing. I ordered the hamburger, medium rare, it was well done, dry and tasteless, how does a steakhouse manage to get a simple burger so wrong? The steaks though were good, carpetbagger and fillet looked perfectly done and there were no complaints.

The service was attentive though even with a full restaurant and there is a good vibe in this place, lot's of energy.

“Good steaks and service and no corkage charge?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

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 again was not easy as there seemed to be the odd gathering, but not a real problem.
This was probably our tenth meal here in the last year or so. We will certainly be back and we do appreciate the no corkage charge.

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

“Totally reliable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014 via mobile

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.
