We went early January as a family party of 7. The food was very good, but the service was really slow. We waited ages for our starters, and had to keep waving at the staff to get their attention for another round of drinks. At one point I actually got up to find a member of staff to ask if they'd forgotten our main course it took so long! In most South African restaurants the waitrons come around asking if everything is OK and if you require anything, but at Hussar's we had to ask for everything. Such a shame because the food is good, fresh and well cooked. How about employing a few more staff??

Steaks in Cape Town are really good and inexpensive but the Hussar Grill was the best of our trip. Had the Chateau Briande and it was 'melt in your mouth' gorgeous.
Great friendly service, great atmosphere and as we had visited a vineyard that day we took our own wine which they opened and served at no cost. Definitely recommend.

Great food, great service and a great atmosphere - the steak dishes we had were lovely. We were only staying in Greenpoint for 4 nights and we went back for a second time and had the cajun line fish which was just as tasty as the steaks.

We were lucky to get a table in this restaurant without making a booking. The staff was very accommodating and made this a very memorable evening. I had the lamb shank which was out of this world. Very charming restaurant.

Would recommend this place for one of the best chateaubriand I have ever tasted, it was superb, as was the bottle of red which accompanied it. Well done!
