“GREAT STEAK”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

Ate here for dinner on 8 Apr 14 whilst staying at the Dysart Luxury Boutique hotel only a 5 min walk away. Fablous steaks, meats are a speciality and a favourite with Cape Town locals so worth booking in advance, it was packed on a Tuesday night in April. Reasonably priced drinks (18 RAND to UK Pound) Summary: Good atmosphere, great service, fabulous food, reasonably priced – a definite recommend. I would have gone back the following night as the food was so good but we decided to try some where different.

“What a disappointment”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

We were due to entertain a steak-loving couple, and searched Trip Advisor for "steakhouses". Hussar Grill at Green Point popped up as #1. The recent reviews looked good, so we booked there. How it got the rating it has is a mystery. The starters were acceptable but not great, apart from the Caesar salad that my partner pronounced the worst she had ever had (limp lettuce, bland cheese, hard to find bacon, etc). The steaks were similarly acceptable but not great. Desserts were large but quite ordinary. Service was adequate. The bill for four, with a bottle of quality wine and tip, came to just under R1600. Not worth a return visit, and certainly not #1 in central Cape Town.

“Awesome Experience. Well worth a visit.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014 via mobile

We were in holiday in Cape Town and had heard about Hassar Grill. We loved the location of the Greenpoint Restaurant. It has a Slug and Lettuce linked to it, which was great for a pre dinner drink. The decor is very upmarket. Service was outstanding. Food was superb. Such attention to detail. Will definitely visit this restaurant again when we are next in Cape Town.

“Amazing steaks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2014 via mobile

We had dinner at Hussar and the steaks were simply amazing. We had the large fillets which were extremely tender and perfectly cooked. The sides were also great. The service was friendly and efficient. The prices were OK for the quality. Highly recommended.

“Steak heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2014

Wow, as a devoted carnivore I recommend this place. Nice friendly staff, decent decor, very good yet inexpensive wines and meat to die for. Top tip ... Don't eat anything for the preceding three days!!!
