Friends recommended The Hussar Grill as a bucket list visit for Cape Town. We booked a table for 3 for New Year’s eve. From the moment we arrived we were impressed by the elegant table setting, the ambiance, the service & our friendly waitress (blonde girl). Our son ordered the 400g rib-eye steak, with mushroom & truffle compound butter, we ordered fillet steak, 300g, with blue cheese & Madagascan green peppercorn sauce respectively. Our sides were green beans, spinach & butternut & corn gratin, all 3 were fantastic. The food was outstanding and we could not fault anything. The whole experience was 5-star & truly memorable. My son declared it the best steak he has had in his life!

If you are serious about steak this is simply must visit. But it is not only the steak - it is the experience. How many, if any South African restaurants have been running for over 50 years and still at the top of the tree ? This is a whole experience not to be missed. As you walked in the door the place was abuzz and you could just sense that great evening ahead, and it was. The fellow who served us was nothing short of brilliant - we were 13 people (challenge enough for interruptions !) yet he clearly explained the offerings and his recommendations, and boy was he spot on. Each and every person on receiving their dish gave that "I've made a good call" nod. The killer dish was the fillet on the bone and served with one of their special "butters" ... you could almost hear the collective "WOW" as people had their first taste. Being wine lovers one and all is is so great to be able to take s special wine (in this case, inter alia, a 10 year old Shiraz, ) and this all just added to the magic.

My boyfriend and I went for dinner, we enjoy fine dining, oh my word, we found an awesome place and will certainly return when in Cape Town again. The Steak literally melted in our mouth, everything was so tasty and enjoyable/ The staff were friendly and efficient. Had such an awesome atmosphere. Then to top it all they gave us the most divine after dinner "shot" it was warm chocolate with cream... absolutely amazing!! Thank you so much, will not hesitate to refer anyone and will certainly be back one day...

The Hussar had a good reputation when I grew up in Cape Town, so visiting from overseas I decided to have a meal here with my wife and daughter. While I’m used to the dark wood panelled interiors of steak restaurants, I do feel that this one is due a bit of a spruce up. We were seated in a corner of the restaurant in between two other tables and it was tight, which likely resulted in the title of this review! I ordered the lamb chops, I ordered my daughter the fillet steak and my wife had the prawns. The prawns were good, the lamb chops were also good, although, I don’t understand why they don’t trim the skin. No matter how it’s cooked, the skin will never be edible. The stand out was the fillet. I think for the price, it’s great value. Sides were good, especially the chips, but we couldn’t eat the creamed spinach. It includes butternut and cinnamon, which gave it a flavour that we didn’t enjoy, but that’s subjective. Garlic roast potatoes were also good, but in hindsight……. Upon clearing the table our waiter dropped the dishes, including the dish that the potatoes came in, which deposited a Exon Valdez level of garlic oil/butter down my leg and brand new suede leather sandal! The waiter was extremely apologetic, but hey, these things can happen. I had expected the manager to come over (the whole restaurant saw what happened), to offer apology, some kind of solution to get my shoe cleaned etc, but nothing. At this stage I just wanted to get out and get cleaned up and try to rescue my shoe. I contacted the restaurant head office a day or two later to see if they wanted to offer some sort of recourse, without punishing the waiter, financially or otherwise. It’s been over a week with still no response and hence the title of my review. Accidents happen, but it‘s how you deal with it that sets institutions apart and in this case the Hussar has failed. I feel it a shame when action is only taken in response to public reviews.

What a fabulous experience last night 13/ 07 We didn’t have a booked table, however the staff were extremely helpful and arranged a wonderful table for us as the restaurant was somewhat busy. Our steaks were cooked to perfection and the basting was just perfect and not over salty as was the case on a previous visit. My grilled vegetables were delicious , well presented and crispy. It was pouring with rain but the restaurant was really cosy. We had the most helpful and fabulous waitress, Thandi , who was attentive and knowledgeable of the menu. She made our experience even more enjoyable. Prices were reasonable and they don’t charge corkage, a plus for any restaurant.

We booked a family outing and were told in by 17h30 and out by 19h00 which we accepted. Having finished our main meal my son asked at 18h46 if he could order a dessert. We were peremptorily told by the waiter that our time was up. No queues outside. We have been patronizing the Rondebosch Hussar for 30 years since my wife and I were UCT students. Regrettably our last visit. Can a restaurant really be so insulting and rude to its patrons. It beggars belief. Adios Hussar.

Can’t fault this original Hussar, established in the 1960s and still serving great steaks. Efficient service, good ambiance, nothing pretentious. Excellent meat cooked to order. What more could anyone want from a steakhouse?

Last night we visited this restaurant, on recommendation and I had probably the best steak I have ever eaten, a 300g fillet, and it was simply delicious, just melting in the mouth. My wife’s sirloin steak was lovely (I did try a little), but not nothing in comparison to mine. The whole experience was great with the lovely food and great service from our waiter, Mike. Will definitely return.

Last minute decision to go out to dinner with no reservation, arrived and was pleasantly greeted and seated at bar -for 10 minutes and a table was ready for us. The waitron was very knowledgeable and helpful - answering all my friend (from New York’s) questions! Excellent wine list. Food was exceptional as was the dessert - will definitely return.

Hussars Rondebosch is still the best Hussars and one of the best steakhouses in Cape Town. Their steaks are simply outstanding, but that is not to take away from their other menu items. Definitely recommended, but booking is a must. Service is really good.

If memory serves correctly the first time, I went to this restaurant was in 1972. I have gone many times since then and although I have moved overseas 18 years ago, I return whenever I come back to CT. Went with 11 friends and we all enjoyed the fabulous steaks and had a great time. Several of us had the 400g ribeye as they did not have Wagyu and it was as brilliant as I remember. The cheesecake desert was good as were the various sides. My daughter had the filet with chocolate chilli sauce and loved it, although not my thing. Our waitron Rebekah was great too.

Fabulous restaurant, we have been going there for years. However one very big mistake FAR TOO MUCH salt. The basting was shockingly over salted that we could not finish our meal and the chips were also so heavenly salted that each had to be wiped before eating. At least a spoon of salt left behind in the bowl. Please guys , cut down on all the salt. We didn’t complain as the restaurant was full and the staff were very busy, however Damian and his shadow were excellent.

A very busy local grill. I ordered the "Fillet Bearnaise". The meat was excellent, exactly "blue" as I want it. The sauce was good but no at par with the meat. The waiter was good and efficient, but not a "sommelier" , say he did not recommend an wine just took the order. The on-line booking works perfect with confirmation of your booking
