This used to be Theo's now called Hussar Grill. I was impressed by the good service and awesome food at a good price. Definately a safe option even when dining on a budget. The place was full for good reason. Well done guys you are doing a great job. Nothing else to be said. I would recommend the meat dishes... More

Theo's has closed and is now the Hussar Grill and while it is part of the Spur Group of restaurants, it has separate management and is an excellent restaurant, with the Best Beef Ribs in the World, well at least the best I've ever eaten. .

When I went to the restaurant, it was locked up, all the signs wer down andthe outside of the building was being repainted. There were no signs to indicate that the closure was temporary (or otherwise). I hope that Theo's is only closed for... More

This is my go to place for a reasonably priced steak in Cape Town, conveniently just down the road from where I live. The steaks are always perfectly cooked. Classic 'Grill House' atmosphere with sports playing, old locals dining in silence, the odd couple of two. Well worth sitting through for the food. Which is excellent.

Our entire table ordered steaks and they were very good. Large wine selection. Service was a little slow.

The seafood in this place was great. The most surprising gem at the table was the bread and we asked for extra. I know you do not usually go to the restaurant for the bread but it was wonderful!!! Warm, moist and almost a sweet taste to it. Everyone had a lunch seafood special and no one was disappointed.
