Absolutely delicious lobster roll and sweet potatoe fries! It was definitely the best meal I had in Cape Town. Very friendly service, too. Wish we had a place like that in Germany, with delicious and affordable lobster rolls.

For a fun filled evening in a trendy spot in town be sure to visit Burger & Lobster. Such a nice vibe with very yummy food. I def recommend the truffle and parmesan chips and the sticky ribs are amazing. For great service and to...make the experience even better be sure to ask for Tyra. She was great and made sure everything was perfect.More
