Critic's review

Beautifully situated in the icon Moullie point. Moullie was once only associated with its surreal ocean views and landmark lighthouse but now is associated with one of the best steakhouses which is Hussar Grill. With over 50 years of grill house wizardry the pair complement each other perfectly. Its loyal dinners flock to the grill house for its superior quality of meat and great service.

Food
If steak you have a passion for well-cooked steaks and classic grill room feel then Hussar Grill is definitely a place where one will not be disappointed. When at a grill room order steaks, they say but rest assure there is a lot more than just steaks on offer like the Mussel Pot that is truly delicious. The mussels are cooked beautifully and plump, finished in a green herb, wine reduction, light cream based sauce. Each ingredient complement each other well and each spoonful makes you wanting more. Enjoying a dinning with theatrics is always a pleasure is the Chateaubriand a good choice. A well-aged fillet served with a classically prepared béarnaise sauce on the side and for the extreme dining theatrics brandy is flambéed add a defined smoky burned taste to the fillet with the flambéed brandy aroma adding to the anesthetics of the dining experience. The meal includes a starch but the onion rings and creamed spinach and cinnamon infused butternut is surely something to consider. Hussar Grill also offers a good selection of poultry and seafood. The best way to compliment or end the dining experience is with dessert and the Hussar Grill Ice Cream dessert is it. This dessert has become just a popular as the steaks. The Hussar Grill Ice Cream Dessert is a well-constructed dessert that has extravagant written all over it being a combination of ice cream, peanut brittle, marshmallow, nougat, honeycomb, sprinkled nuts finished with a proper drizzle of the signature chocolate sauce. Yes, this is surely more is better as the waiter will happily remind you.

Drinks
The wine menu is well presented and easy to read for the novice wine drinker to wine connoisseur. It’s very informative and offers suitable wine parings as well as what regions the wines originate. The wine list has a good selection of white wines, red wines and sparkling/MCC available of which a selection of these wines could be enjoyed by the glass. Hussar Grill also has good selection of spirits & beers local and international.

Ambience
With that true classic grill room feel Hussar Grill offers a comfortable atmosphere. With a relaxed setting one is sure to have an excellent dining experience.

    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.

    Drinks
    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.

    Service
    Warm hospitality from the moment you step through the door.

    Ambience
    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.

    And…
    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.
