A few weeks ago I was invited to visit The Hussar Grill at Montecasino. I’ve heard great things about this premier grill house and so I was looking forward to the experience.
My benedict and I arrived at The Hussar Grill on a busy week day evening and were quickly escorted to our table. We began with some starters. I opted for the mussel pot; mussels served in a white wine creamy garlic sauce. The sauce was flavourful and very tasty making the mussels a great choice. My benedict selected the springbok carpaccio. This was paper-thin slices of cured springbok loin dressed in an olive oil and balsamic reduction and topped with parmesan shavings. Another great starter option. For my main, I went along with our helpful waiters recommendation; the chateaubriand. This was a succulent cut of beef fillet topped with brandy and flambéed before our eyes at the table – certainly an entertaining delivery. The fillet was tender and perfectly cooked to my request. It was also served with a side of lovely béarnaise sauce. My benedict opted for the rump steak which was also perfectly prepared and very tasty. For dessert we shared the crème brûlée. The custard was silky smooth and delectable with a perfectly crunchy caramelised topping.
The Hussar Grill at Montecasino is a great spot for an intimate date night or a dinner with family and friends. The service was good and our waiter made some great recommendation. They are certainly worth the visit for a lovely night out.
