The Hussar Grill in Stellenbosch

I stumbled upon a new restaurant in Stellenbosch quite by accident when our regular lunch spot was closed for their annual winter break. We were sorely disappointed having anticipated our al fresco luncheon spot all the way from Cape Town! Anyway we were in dire need of the bathroom and after some rude treatment at another establishment I noticed  The Hussar Grill on the Square and the delightful staff were more than happy to assist us in our hour of need.

Emerging refreshed I was able to take in the ambiance of the new establishment and was instantly captivated! The decor is a delight and creates a cosy ambiance. The tables are decked out in white with napkins. Whilst my son availed himself of the facilities I asked to see the menu and we decided to have lunch!

Mighty happy that we did!  We ordered a glass of wine each and while we waited we received a gorgeous bowl of olives (they were excellent) and a bowl of veggie crisps.

Now... what to eat...?

Whenever I find myself at a restaurant  that I have not yet visited and they have chicken livers on the menu it trips me up!! I just have to try it to see what the chef does. So my mind was made up quite quickly and I snapped away with my camera whilst my son read the brand new leather menu from cover to cover with intriguing squeals of ..ooh the have .... or ooh they make!!

You can have a peek at the full menu Here on the website for The Hussar Grill (click please)

I love the way they used object for interest and to add detail....very effective in this space....

Byron did pause from his menu reading to inform the waitress not to worry about me that I took pictures wherever I went for my blog

He had a hamburger of course and it was beautifully presented with the sauce served on the side.

My chicken livers were superb! Compliments to the chef!

The service was impeccable, the staff delightful and the food was great. We will definitely be returning. I imagine that it would be a good idea to book for dinner as it is not very big and bound to be very popular. Here are the details
