“Excellent service and food”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

Really great service with a friendly and extremely helpful, and honest staff. The lamb chops were some of the best I've had, and the cheesecake well worth a try! The red wine was also excellent, a rare thing for my French taste here is Cape Town.

The atmosphere was warm, and for once, we didn't have to scream to talk to each other. This restaurant had a very European feel to it.

It was lovely to see a real blend of people there, a feel of what South Africa can and should be.

Pricey, but not overly so, and well worth a visit.

“Owner managed and it shows”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

Firstly a warm welcome awaits at the door of this local eatery instead of a cheeky "have you made reservations" as some over-popular joints always do. An attractive old-fashioned, almost clubby ambience as you're shown to your table. Nice and relaxed. Best perhaps at night time especially winter nights, maybe a little dark for lunchtime visits. Cosy table, not too close to other diners yet not too lonely either. Excellent service, intelligent waitron happy to please yet not pushy or over-attentive. Just the right balance here. Root vegetables served chipped style and plump olives add tasty pre-meal, high-quality snack (no charge). Meal served in reasonable time. Had a burger with mushroom sauce and my wife ordered a steak. Decent sized portion with shoe string fries. Meat was good, but not great. Cooked right but a little lacking in flavour. Home-cut fries would be nicer too instead of shoe string cut. Overall a really nice steakhouse and a good experience. If you are looking to eat in Camps Bay, Hussar is a much, much better option than the tourist traps on the beachfront. Owner-managed and it really shows!

“A good consistent steakhouse”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

For many years now we have been enjoying good consistent steak and service from Hussar. The decor is old style as is the menu but when the steak is good you don't mind it.

“Meat lovers paradise”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

We visited this restaurant twice during our stay in cape town, and both times we ware amazed.

Its a big restaurant, we managed to get table even though we didnt make a reservation.

Service was quick and our waitress knew to recommend good wines with the food we ordered.

The steaks are to die for. Portions size are big, definitely will kill your hunger. The Cheesecake is divine as well.
