You know you are eating at a Restuarant who are confident about their food offering when they do not charge corkage, irrespective how many bottles of wine you wish to bring!! The food didn't disappoint in the slightest, from the fillets (including fillet on the bone - you gotta try that one), to the rumps, to the sirloins. And then... More

I made a reservation through email to celebrate my husbands birthday there. I specifically said it was for a birthday thinking they would offer him a dessert with a candle at the end or something like this (even if I had to pay for it). This did not happen. They did not even have my reservation when we arrived in... More

Dear L R, Thank you for choosing us for your husband's birthday. Unfortunately we never received your email requesting a booking, therefore did not know it was your husband's birthday. Had we known, I am sure we would have made a bigger fuss. I can only apologize for the miscommunication. With regards to the waitress, I am so sorry that... More

A great view was just the start. Looking over into the ocean was a great way to start a meal. Our waiter was attentive and the steak was so great! It lived up to everything we imagined. Succulent and done just right. And no reservation was needed.

Thank Stephen A
Management response:

Dear Stephen A, I am so glad we managed to get you a table, and it was one with a view! Thank you for your favorable review, and feedback. We so enjoyed serving you and look forward till the next time. Kind regards, Tracy Huxley More

What a great experience. We had a tsble next to the sliding window. The service was excellent, the view to die for and the food tasty. I would recomment Hussar Grill for a good food experience, especially the rump steak. Will be back again.

Setup is lovely, friendly staff. Toilets have mini towels - classy. Food was good. Vegetarian platter was pretty standard but tasted good.

Place was very busy for a Tuesday night which speaks for their... More
