The atmosphere in the new Hussar (used to be Theos steak house) is as attractive as before, lots of things to look at, giving a cosy feel. The restaurant is always busy, you have to book. This time the steak was not as good as usual, unfortunately, but we still had a good evening.

Thank Thalia8
Management response:

Dear Thalia8, Thank you for the review, I'm glad you enjoyed the atmosphere and had a good evening. Next time if the steak is not that good, please let us know and we could change that for you. We have had a few previous complaints about the meat being chewy and I have subsequently changed our supplier. Please do not... More

Came here with friends without booking but we were still welcomed warmly & seated at what was the only vacant & unbooked table. The downside of this particular table was it's proximity to the area where the "meet & greet" staff stand while waiting to greet guests & these people spoke, laughed & joked so loudly with each other that...

Really nice steak-restaurant. The atmosphere was as well nice. It reminded me a little of a library as we had a round table in a corner.

Thank Caroline S

It seems that the Hassar Grill franchise in Mouille Point don't understand the concept of good matured meat. It was a celebration of my daughter finishing exams, therefore to complain on the day about the quality of the food was inappropriate. The seafood was very good. The steaks was totally substandard, tasteless and not matured as it should be. Come... More 

Thank Vlokkie
Management response:

Dear Vlokkie, Thank you for your review, I'm so sorry you did not get the ultimate Hussar experience we all work so hard to give. Had we known on the night we would have tried our utmost to rectify the situation. Our steaks are matured for a minimum of 28 days before we serve them, our sirloin is currently at... More

Booked a table for 4 and were greeted warmly. Great ambience and decor - think traditional grill house. Starters (livers), mains (fillet steak) both really well done and very tasty. Our waitress was attentive and fast. Even got a chocolate liquer after the meal on the house. Highly recommended!

What more can I say than excellent! Luckily we booked a table in advance. Possible to bring your own wine without paying a corkage fee.

Thank Thomas N
Management response:

Dear Thomas N, Thank you for choosing us. We pride ourselves in our wine list but know that, being in wine territory we cannot stock it all (although we would love to!). You are most welcome to bring your own bottle and yes, we do wave a corkage fee. The pleasure is your company and we hope you enjoy the... More

An unforgettable experience, the beef ribs arent actually on the menu so I suppose they are a best kept secret, fall of the bone in a unique rib sauce absolutely to die for. Slightly pricey restaurant but a cut above the rest. I had a mushroom starter and again unique flair. Service is relaxed and they leave you alone which... More

Great steak, good prices and wonderful wine! the service was a bit slow but considering it was packed it was reasonable. Defiantly in my top 5 steaks!

Dear AnnR2, Thank you for the kind words, I'm sorry to hear our service was slow. I shall take that up with the team, we are experiencing high volumes of people but that should never be an excuse. I shall up our staff content and be right on it. We thank you for your custom and patience and we hope... More

Fairly uncomplicated menu, but well executed and very tasty. Ambience is what you'd expect from a 'traditional' steakhouse as opposed to grubby pub.
