Critic's review

Food
A small bowl filled with fresh olives and another bowl containing homemade potato chips are brought to you as soon as you sit down.

For starters, there’s Italian tomato soup, traditional boerewors, Hussar beef biltong, chicken livers, and a mussel pot, to name a few. They also serve Greek, fresh greens, and tomato and onion salads.

As its name suggests, this is a grill house, so the menu is dominated by meat dishes. The steak fillet comes with the option of oven-baked veggies. There’s also a selection of sauces, which include a creamy mushroom offering.

The creamy mushroom sauce and oven-baked veggies are great accompaniments to the steak fillet. The fillet is juicy and tender, the veggies bright and tasty, while the mushroom sauce brings everything together.

There are, of course, a variety of steaks on offer. In addition, the Hussars’ grill repertoire also includes pork, lamb, ostrich, and game. Also, they have a seasonal, two-course buffet (R130) served from Monday to Saturday between 12pm and 5pm.

For something light and slightly informal, there are the Hussar burger, the Hussar grilled chicken breast burger, the Hussar steak roll, and fried halloumi.

The versatile menu features chicken and seafood dishes: parmesan chicken breasts, chicken roulade with mushroom sauce, grilled chicken breast; kingklip, calamari and salmon.

Chocolate fondant, baked cheese cake, malva pudding are some of the dessert items.

The food presentation and the execution of the dishes make for a pleasant and satisfying culinary experience.

Drink  There is plenty to choose from on the wine list, from red wines to whites, as well as blends – to give you an indication of how extensive the options are, the wine list is 10 pages long. The wine is served by the bottle or per class. Then there are cocktails, gins, vodka mixes, liqueurs, rums, malts, brandies and cognacs, whiskies and bourbons, and ports and sherries. There’s more: beers, cold drinks and warm beverages.

Service
Simply brilliant. From the moment you walk in, you’re attended to until you leave.

Ambience
Elegant, tasteful, comfortable, and suave.

Best for...
An incredible range of meaty eats.

User reviews

  • I have eaten at the Hussar Grill twice in Morningside, Johannesburg and when I think back to my time there I have to say that the food is excellent and the service is great. It does lack Ambiance because it feels claustrophobic with all the wine boxes everywhere. Overdone with the boxes making up for a lack of decor. You actually cannot see the whole restaurant from the tables beyond the bar. Therefore I think the layout needs a better interior decorator to open it up to make it more spacious. They should have taken a tip from the restaurant that was there before. I was disappointed to see the great light fitting had been removed. Cheryl Jennings
