Savour an award-winning menu at The Hussar Grill

When looking for a restaurant where the steaks are grilled to perfection, the waiters are friendly and efficient, and the ambiance is classy and tranquil, look no further than The Hussar Grill in Walmer, Port Elizabeth.

The Hussar Grill has a long and proud history

Established in 1964, The Hussar Grill is well-known for their expertise in grilling succulent steaks and their award-winning wine. With an award-winning menu, it’s no wonder that people are still line up to get a taste of what The Hussar Grill has to offer.

When a friends and I walked into The Hussar Grill, we were warmly welcomed and shown to our table. Since it was the festive season, we were given a complimentary holiday shot of Melk Tert and a Christmas cracker.

Hussar-grilled to perfection!

Since we both had a good breakfast, we decided to forgo the starters and went straight for the main course. My friend ordered the chicken breasts with an array of sauces while I got myself a blue cheese sirloin steak with a side of chips.

With promptness that can be appreciated when one orders a rare steak, our meals were brought to our table and we enjoyed a delicious cornucopia of flavour.

My steak was grilled to utter perfection and the blue cheese sauce added a unique flavour to the mix. I simply couldn’t get enough; the smoothness of the cheese sauce complemented my steak well in a way that wasn’t overpowering, making it all the more delicious.

My friend also thoroughly enjoyed her chicken, and sampled it with the three different sauces that were provided. We also received complimentary crumbed onions which were great.

Once we cleared our plates, we knew we couldn’t leave without trying The Hussar Grill’s signature dessert; the Chocolate Vodka.

Sounding both delicious and dangerous, the Chocolate Vodka is served in a martini glass and is a mixture of chocolate sauces and a tot of Vodka. As my friend does not drink, hers was without any alcohol.

We truly enjoyed our experience at The Hussar Grill and look forward to tasting more of their delicious menu in the future.

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.


You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
