The Hussar franchise was started 55 years ago in Cape Town. The Rivonia branch continues the tradition of providing classic grilled steaks in old-world comfort.


For starters, try spicy bites of boerewors or, when in season, prawns in a tangy Marie Rose sauce, served with avocado slices. Go back in time and order the classic Hussar carpetbagger– filet mignon stuffed with oysters, oozing cheese, and doused in a brandy and mustard seed sauce. Or opt for a straightforward juicy 600kg T-bone, with one of several speciality butters or sauces on the side. You can team it with blunt-cut chips, mashed or baby potatoes.

For dessert, try the popular baked cheesecake or the crème brûlée, with a light and smooth interior and just the right amount of sweetness.


The comprehensive wine list includes a number of traditional and timeless classics, with Platter ratings to guide you, as well as an unusually large variety of wines served by the glass. There’s a full range of other alcoholic drinks, including gins, single malts, liqueurs and cognacs.


Polite and practised.


The interior is a mélange of library and cellar, with books and wine bottles lining the panelled walls, a convivial curved bar and white-draped tables. The more open glassed-in area has less atmosphere, so if it’s cosiness or intimacy you’re after, book a table in the inner section close to the bar. 

Best for…

Adult families, singles and couples with a red meat craving, suits doing business, or keeping an eye on sport.

    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
    The last time I went to Hussar I was blown away by my delicious, juicy and tender steak. It was the best steak I've ever had! I also love the ambiance of the restaurant in Morningside. Really enjoyed my visit there and will definitely be going back!
