We used to eat here around 10 to 12 times a month - 2 to 3 times a week. Then, twice in a row, we were served (very) tough steaks and decided to give it a break and drive to Stellenbosch for our lunches and...dinners. Yesterday we decided to give them another chance. There were 6 other tables for lunch. A friendly gentleman served us. He took our order and that was the last we saw of him for a long time. There is complimentary olives and crisps on the tables. Unfortunately nowhere to place the olive pips. We desperately tried to get our waiter’s attention and eventually another staff member came to our rescue and brought us something to put it in. The food arrived and my wife’s main dish, the calamari, was immediately sent back as it was swimming in brown oil and tasting of oil. We canceled the calamari and she only ate her tomato salad. My steak was overcooked (I ordered medium rare and it was well done). The waiter was nowhere to be found so we finished our meal. We waited for him to bring us the bill but eventually went to reception where he quickly appeared. It is sad that this restaurant went down so quickly in their standards. There is clearly a lack of management as the staff isn’t trained. We haven’t seen her the last 2 times, but what they need is moreShamara’s as she is the one person who was on top of every detail at your table - the perfect hostess. I post a picture of my chair. That sums up our recent experiences.More

The last time I went to this branch of Hussars I had to send my rump steak back as it was inedible. The manager admitted that it was totally unacceptable. I decided to give them a second chance. Again I had to return my rump...steak. It had a thick band of fat with sinews attached. I battled to separate the meat from the sinew. The steak was replaced but was cooked medium, not medium rate and was a bit "chewy". On leaving I asked to speak to the manager. He said that he had looked at the steak and that I must realise that it came with fat attached (as does all rump). He did not even have the courtesy to come to my table to apologise. He didn't seem to care. I will not go to Hussars Somerset West again. As a "upmarket steak house" that is what you expect. In future I will go to the franchise's "downmarket" alternative, Spur, which is round the corner. The service was good. Pity the poor waiters.More

Our todays lunch was again delicious.Perfekt grilled fillet steak with mustard and pepper sauces and baby potatoes. When arriving they serve you with handmade potato chips and tasteful olives.After lunch you get a nice warm small chocolate drink (probably during the pandemic as I cant...remember this from our last visit in March). All in all a perfect lunch,served from Shimara, our very friendly waitress. We will be back very soon!More

My wife and I had the privilege of celebrating our 40th anniversary in Cape Town and decided on the Hussar Grill. We had booked a table a week prior and when we arrived we were immediately taken there. The entire ambience of the restaurant was...absolutely wonderful, the staff was courteous and the food was brilliant. What we ordered is what we got, the way it was ordered. At the end of the meal we were treated with a chocolate vodka to congratulate us on the milestone. Another wonderful feature of this restaurant is that they allow patrons to bring their own wine without any corkage fee! How is that for you? They will certainly see us again, God willing.More

It takes a lot for me to invest my time to write a poor review. Steak ordered medium arrived well done. Twice. The way it was handled left much to be desired. We were also seated at the very back of a mostly empty restaurant...for our early dinner (5:30) behind where the waiters were cleaning glasses and laying tables. Our previous first visit was very average so we definitely won't go back. They need a more experienced manager at the very least to get back on track. Vegetarian options are a little sad, too.More

For far too long during lockdown restrictions, did we walk past their closed doors until finally, they were open! Nothing has changed. Here you always get a good steak - never mind what cut, size or how rare or well done your steak is grilled....The service is top notch, and you get value for money. The saving in the BYO policy allows for a bigger steak and maybe a starter. How lovely is that hot chocolate vodka after your meal! I bought their basting sauce to take home, but somehow cannot grill my own steak as well as they do. Well done and look after your griller!More
