Went for an early supper with a friend. Service excellent, food delicious. However with two people, out for an early supper and both of us driving, we only want a small glass of wine each. With a glass of wine costing anything from R40 to R65odd a glass, we looked at purchasing a bottle for on average R120 - R140(white... More

Beautiful setting and such a classic vibe! Professional service even in the middle of the holiday season and wonderful food and wine. Definitely recommend for old fashioned souls. Paul Simon and Mango Grove playing in the background was definitely a pleasant surprise. A wonderful little gem of a restaurant.

While vacationing in South Africa, we were delighted to discover Hussar's Grill especially since it was a short walk from our wonderful BnB.

We were not excited when our hosts chose to meet us at The Hussar. It has been going a long time and I remembered it as slightly tired, and a bit claustrophobic. However, we were very pleasantly surprised. We had a delicious and tender fillet steak and salads, without the over-complications South African restaurants are prone to. We had an... More

Though it may be small, this original Hussar Grill packs a serious punch. We've tried many branches but Rondebosch wins hands down. Best chips I've ever eaten. Steaks to die for. Only complaint is it's tiny and some tables can feel a bit squished but the food more than makes up for it. Tips: Book in advance. Try the chocolate... More
