From the sophisticated décor to an ambience of pure comfort and indulgence no detail has been spared when it comes to this spot. The Hussar Grill has won many prestigious awards over the past 54 years, including being consistently ranked as one of South Africa’s best restaurants and steakhouses according to TripAdvisor, and the esteemed Diners Club Platinum Status Award for their wine selection. And, it’s easy to see why. The grill focuses on quality before anything else and has an ongoing commitment to excellence.

The menu at The Hussar Grill Morningside is stellar and quite literally offers a dish to suit any palate or mood. From a starter selection that incorporates everything from Italian tomato soup through to all-time favourites like the Hussar beef biltong, cured springbok loin carpaccio or marrow bones as well as fried crumbed camembert and seafood options like calamari and a mussel pot, you’ll be spoilt for choice from the moment you set eyes on the menu. Mains can only be described as an extension of the incredible starters and offer everything from picture perfect steaks and grills to house specialities like lamb shank, blue cheese sirloin and the must-try Hussar Carpetbagger which is filet mignon stuffed with a combination of smoked oysters, cheddar cheese and topped off with a brandy and wholegrain mustard sauce. Lighter grills like burgers and fried halloumi are also an option, and the poultry and seafood selection are choices to be well considered. Dessert is a classic affair with traditional favourites like baked cheesecake, crème brûlée, chocolate fondant and malva pudding as well as a signature option – the Chocolate Vodka Martini.


The extensive wine selection ensures there is a superb wine in perfect complement to your meal, and guests are also welcome to bring their own wines at no corkage.
