Came here to celebrate the birthday of an old friend & I was really impressed. This is the original Hussar Grill in the Hussar chain in Cape Town & as such is a bit small but the atmosphere is great & the food absolutely sublime. My fillet steak was cooked rare as requested & I swear I could have cut... More

We were not excited when our hosts chose to meet us at The Hussar. It has been going a long time and I remembered it as slightly tired, and a bit claustrophobic. However, we were very pleasantly surprised. We had a delicious and tender fillet steak and salads, without the over-complications South African restaurants are prone to. We had an... More

Though it may be small, this original Hussar Grill packs a serious punch. We've tried many branches but Rondebosch wins hands down. Best chips I've ever eaten. Steaks to die for. Only complaint is it's tiny and some tables can feel a bit squished but the food more than makes up for it. Tips: Book in advance. Try the chocolate... More

Having heard repeated rave reviews from friends of this place. I was happy to give it a try when a colleague suggested it. Best decision I have made all week.

We've eaten at often at three of them and they never let you down. Steaks are just the best, often have good beer. The lunch-time specials are unbeatable.
