Food

Everything about The Hussar Grill says steakhouse throwback – from sixties standards such as a carpetbagger steak, a prawn cocktail (served here without irony) and traditional steakhouse sides like creamed spinach and roasted butternut, to the macho décor – dark wood, white tablecloths, a boys’ own collection of vintage model cars.

If the prawn cocktail is just too retro for your taste, the starter menu kicks off with the Italian soup (the recipe hasn´t changed in 30 years); and if you can resist the Hussar biltong and the Hollandse bitterballen, scroll all the way down to the oven-roasted marrow bones. They’re so rich and delicious, you may need a short nap.

As well as the Hussar carpetbagger, which, in case you don’t remember the seventies, is filet mignon stuffed with oysters and cheddar cheese and topped with a brandy and mustard sauce, house specialities include blue cheese sirloin, chateaubriand and fillet béarnaise. Perfectly matured meat and skilled cooking do these grillroom classics proud.

On the dessert menu, steakhouse classics such as baked cheesecake and ice cream and chocolate sauce get stiff competition from a sweet and sticky malva pudding.

Drinks

The award-winning wine list likewise takes no risks. Platter’s Wine Guide ratings have been added throughout, and you’re unlikely to run into a label you don’t recognise. The selection is nevertheless extensive and the prices reasonable enough to not be tempted by the no-corkage-ever invitation to bring your own.

Service

Service is courtesy of accomplished career waiters – gracious hosts who laugh at your jokes, possibly because they’ve heard them before.

Ambience

Ultimately, it’s the service that imparts a certain elegance to your Hussar Grill experience. The sense that everything is going to be just fine (and it will be) makes it equally suitable for a midweek romance as for the kids to show off their best manners.

Best for…

A relaxed night out when you want a reliably good meal with a side of polish.

    I love this place. It is cozy and unpretentious, the food is always amazing and the staff is great. Their chocolate vodka shot is a sweet ending to a perfect meal.
    You won’t be disappointed if you’re looking for a good steak
    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.
    Casual but classy and excellent service - our waiter was very well prepared and knowledgable about the food and wine list. The food did not disappoint - it was honestly the best steak we've had in Cape Town. Such a gem!
