“Could have eaten here EVERY night”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Do NOT, I repeat, do NOT miss this gem in Camps Bay! This restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere with a wonderful selection of food and wines. The service was great and the wine suggestions were spot on! Meat is what counts in South Africa and they prepared it to perfection. Deserts are great if you manage to keep space for them. If you like Port try the Allesverloren vintage. Prices are high-ish for local RSA standards, but in European/US standards very cheap.

“Fabulous ambience, fantastic food”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

The whole experience was wonderful. Excellent menu with an amazing waiter who really looked after us, made good recommendations and clearly knew his stuff. Steaks to die for, great decor, excellent wine list - generally faultless

“What an amazing place! Best dinner in our 2 weeks stay in SA”
Reviewed August 15, 2012 via mobile

I hardly post reviews on restaurants on TA. And I realized I mostly do it to report a negative experience... Being Italian I consider myself quite picky about food! But Hussar grill definitely requires to be mentioned as a paradise for meat lovers. Excellent food, perfect cooking, good service, cosy atmosphere. Amazing dessert (i had the cheesecake) and good value for money. Totally approved

“Great Steaks”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

Ate here twice in a week so that probably says something. Second visit better than the first as seated in a slightly busier area of the restaurant. Huge menu, good value, pleasant waitstaff. Mains (entrees) better than starters in our opinion. Good wine list too. Not being local I hadn't realised that it was part of a chain so I am not sure how this venue compares to others

They seem to have the smoking thing the wrong way round though, as all the non smokers have to walk through the smoking section of the restaurant to get to their tables.
