Description: Established in 1964 and one of the oldest grill rooms in the country, Rondebosch Hussar Grill is a true Capetonian favourite that has been serving the finest South Africa beef to generations of loyal and dedicated guests for the past 50 years. Situated in the leafy suburb of Rondebosch, the restaurant is filled with character and embodies the finest of grill room traditions. As the original Hussar Grill, it remains the benchmark against which all the others are measured.

Having heard repeated rave reviews from friends of this place. I was happy to give it a try when a colleague suggested it.

Best decision I have made all week.

The ambiance is old world and works really well. The service is friendly, professional yet totally relaxed. It feels like a restaurant that has been around for decades and is relaxed about it.

Supposedly the oldest restaurant in Cape Town, no wonder it has survived so long. The menu is varied but not not complicated. It is primarily known for its steaks, but there is an option for everyone's taste, including fish etc.

The food was beautifully cooked and the wine perfectly matched. Service was quick and always with a smile.

If you are visiting Cape Town, makes sure you visit this restaurant. If you are not nearby, there are other Hussar Grills now open across the area, all faithfully and sympathetically replicated to match the original site decor.

This restaurant will please the vast majority of diners, so give it a try, you will love it.

We've eaten at often at three of them and they never let you down. Steaks are just the best, often have good beer. The lunch-time specials are unbeatable.

We had a wonderful meal just before the Mark Lottering show. Chris gave us fantastic service and the Chocolate Chilli Fillet was amazing.

The staff was very knowledgeable and friendly! The food was great for the price and would definitely recommend this place for a casual sit-down dinner or a nice formal dinner. The quality of the meat was great, but the only complaint I have is that it was underdone from what I wanted it to be. However, everything else was so great it made up for it.
