Critic's review

It’s a mystery who comes to Hussar and orders the kingklip or the breaded chicken. This long-running steakhouse favourite (the Rondebosch original opened in 1964) is all about prime cuts of beef. Loyal diners return again and again for a great steak, properly cooked and well-priced.

If you do want something more exciting than the 300g rump done medium-rare (you won’t be disappointed) there is a wide selection of dressed-up steak dishes. The brandy-flambéed Chateaubriand is popular, as is the adventurous oyster-stuffed Hussar Carpetbagger. Ask the friendly waiters about daily specials and game options too. Orders include your choice of starch and it’s worth adding a bowl of onion rings and the classic spinach/butternut combo.

If you really don’t want steak, you’ll find slow-cooked lamb shanks, burgers, salads and seafood on offer too.

The Hussar Grill franchise is famous for not charging corkage, despite its extensive (and award-winning) wine list. Although by-the-glass offerings are limited, the selection ranges widely from big brands to boutique producers, all at extremely fair mark-ups. There’s a focus on red wines, obviously, and unless you have a special bottle in mind there’s really no reason to BYO. They also have a good range of single malts and brandies for after.

Warm hospitality from the moment you step through the door.

A restaurant of two halves: indoors there’s a cosy convivial atmosphere thanks to leather-backed chairs, dark woods and old wine cases gracing the walls, while terrace tables make the most of lovely sea views.

If you loved the steak, there’s a small selection of prime cuts vacuum-packed and ready to take home.

  • Went for the first time last week. We sat on the balcony on a perfect day, very pleasant. Service was quick and accurate. I had the hog ribs, which were generous and perfectly cooked.

  • Had a lovely meal with family on 25th February. Very attentive waiter. Only scored down on the service because he forgot the side salads and the chips my husband ordered which we had to remind him of after our food had arrived and we had started eating. The meat was outstanding as always. Two of us had ribs, one had a chateau brand and one had a fillet with an excellent mushroom sauce. We took our own wine and the only strange thing was that if you don"t finish your own wine, you can't take it home with you. You need to leave it at the restaurant!! Apparently there are new liquor laws.... As two of the party of four didn't drink, and my husband and I only had one glass each, there was left over in the bottle. Not much but enough to want to take home and maybe have a drink at home.
