Description: Headquarters (HQ) Parisian-inspired steakhouse / bar / lounge set in the historic Heritage Square in Cape Town. Our Parisian-inspired steakhouse-cum-bar is situated conveniently in the midst of the urban sprawl, so you won’t need to go far to find a classy cocktail, craft beer or top local wine to help you ease into the weekend. Housed in national monument, Heritage Square, HQ is effortlessly sophisticated; the main restaurant with its red leather seating, mirrored walls, and balloon lampshades casting a golden glow; to the moody bar and lounge area with contemporary furnishings and glamorous fittings. HQ is a breath of fresh air in a dining world populated by overextended menus. The straightforward menu includes, a classic salad starter, to be followed by sirloin steak and thin-cut fries with HQ’s signature Cafe De Paris butter. A retreat for the urban sophisticate, regular nights play host to top live acts and musicians as well as swing and house music played by the city’s finest DJ

I love red meat and I also love a small menu and that is what one receives at HQ

Starter is a salad(delicious even for a carnivore), main consist of a sirloin with "all you can eat" fries...as simple as that.

With such a tiny menu, one hopes that the chefs have perfected it...they succeeded!

Awesome experience

If you a steak lover like myself this is heaven. No fuss just Salad, Steak and Chips. The concept is brilliant and the food was really good. There is only one maybe two restaurants in Cape Town who serve a better steak. And the way I see it if all you do is steak you should be the best! No questions asked. Would I go back yes, but I would go to Nelson's eye first.

Their concept is serving steak and chips, and they have truly mastered it. Dinner consist of 2 courses: you get a really delicious green salad to start with, followed by your steak (cooked to perfection) with sauce, and then they keep on topping you up with skinny fries. They also have live entertainment on some evenings and you must make a booking beforehand – they are almost always fully booked. On Mondays they have a two for one special – so it is R80 per person (a good deal). Not a place for kids though.

We arrived, sat down and were asked what we would like to drink. I asked to see the menu so I could decide on red or white wine and had to laugh when the waitress told me that there was only one thing on the menu - a salad followed by steak with fries. It was a fantastic meal and the place has a great feel like you are in some secluded chamber somewhere. Highly recommend it.

This is probably one of the best Steak houses in SA, they specialize only with Steaks and therefore make it fantastic every time. I have yet to have a bad time at this wonderful location. Their service is brilliant, and now also have the Night Club Vibe going. Thanx for always being great at what you guys do. Put this place on your meaty Bucket list for sure.
