Description: Mouille Point, one of many special places in the Mother City where Table Mountain slopes ever gentler towards its rendezvous with the mighty Atlantic Ocean. The word ‘Mouille’, forever connected to lighthouse of the same name, stems from the French word meaning ‘anchoring ground’. With the customary exquisite cuisine and superior service that has fuelled the Hussar Grill legend for over 50 years, we could think of nowhere better to weigh anchor during a misty, autumnal Cape evening than the Hussar Grill Mouille Point. An enlightening evening of excellence awaits you, whatever the season.

We visited here on 30th Dec for dinner and it was amazing! Despite a full house, service was really quick and our food was delish.

I ordered the chateaubriand medium rare which was incredibly tender and hubby ordered the 400g rib eye. This was huge! He couldn't finish it but it was super tasty as well.

The butternut squash side was heavenly - however the creamed spinach was surprisingly bland. Creamed spinach is usually my fave but whatever recipe being used at Hussar grille is not the most enticing. However this was a minor setback as everything else was delightful.

We ordered the chocolate fondant and that was amazing! Please make sure you save some belly space for this :) loved it!

Definitely worth dining here if visiting Capetown! Pleasant dinner.

Dear Margaret O,

Thank you so much for your kind words and honest feedback.

I will definitely look into our spinach issues. Our intention is to serve tasty food and I am so sorry if the spinach was bland. We have the same 'Gogo' (meaning Granny in Xhosa) who has been cooking up the butternut and spinach for nearly ten years. Sounds like she forgot to put some salt in it.

Please let me know when you next dine with us so that we can express our gratitude with our delicious vodka martini's.

We do look forward to seeing you again soon.

Kind regards,
Tracy Huxley

Service, food, ambience all superb - will definitely be back ! The only thing we could think of that wasn't 5 star was the food presentation - very plain indeed, but it was a great night out and we would recommend it to anybody

Dear Binty12,

Thank you for coming to visit us, I am so glad you like our spot!

Our food presentation is very plain, it hasn't changed in years. We are not about fussy plates and outlandish splashes. Just real food, tasty sides and we are all about the meat. Which is the center of attention.

Thank you for the recommendation, we look forward to seeing you again.

Kind regards,
Tracy Huxley

Seriously delicious food! Our family of 16 ate here and everyone - from the super meat eaters to the vegetarians - LOVED it! Everything was amazing. The kudu, the fillet, the wildebeest, the desserts, the sides, etc. all was great. The wait staff were friendly as well! I’d come back any time and I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

I came here with a group of about 8 and we had the absolute best time! The waiter was top notch, the wine was fantastic...and the MEAT! ohhh the meat! Everyone's meal was divine. I had the ostrich steak and I want to go back to SA just for this! We ended up staying a bit later than their closing and they didn't mind at all! DEFINITELY try this gem!

Dear Gambrels,

Thank you for such kind words, we are so grateful for your custom.

The wine we cannot take credit for, but we do put our favorites on our list, so glad you enjoyed them.

Ostrich is becoming one of our most popular lean meats, we can always try and send you some. (If only you could lick the screen!)

Once again, thank you for the amazing review and choosing us to dine.

We look forward to seeing you again in our beautiful city.

Kind regards,
Tracy Huxley
