This place is a must to eat at while visiting the V and A wharf in Cape Town. We went for lunch, dinner and snacks for a total of 4 visits while we were there. The food is amazing (may I suggest a burger??) but...the service is by far nothing short of incredible. I'd like to acknowledge the four servers that waited on us by name because they were so great.....Chante, Kwanele, Lindi and Samiya. Amazing job!!!!!!!!! Thank you for the great times there!!More

We had a rather disappointing experience during our visit yesterday evening. Wanted to try out this new place with my friends, we were a huge crowd fantasising on a german experience. Unfortunately, upon arriving at the main entrance, the host very friendly helped us move...from the smoking area to the balcony despite being a bunch of us she made a plan. We were left unattended for nearly 10 minutes. It was disheartening we felt unnoticed and unwelcome during that time so others decided to walk to the buy to get a few drinks. We eventually had to take the initiative and inquire about service ourselves only then we had a 2 servers who come to assist us thinking it would get better the drinks took 10minutes to come, half of them were wrong. the waiter had the guts lie that the didnt make coffee only to stand up and go to the bar to get one made. food 5+dishes came out totally wrong, we had to just eat because we had waited close to an hour for our food. Regrettably, we ultimately left unhappy no manager came to check on us. It is my hope that the team could work on improving their service standards to ensure a more welcoming and attentive experience for all guests. i wouldnt recommend this place at allMore

We have been there for new year eve. When we booked the table they asked us to pay Rand 750 per person in advance, just to confirm the booking. We ordered our food, after one hour they told us that the kitchen was closed and...they could not provide any food for us. I had to complain with the manager. After a few minutes they brought us our food. Starters and main courses at the same time. Our actual bill was much lower of what we had paid in advance, they refused to give us a refund or to give us some takeaway to cover the money we had paid. I tried to speak with the manager again, but he was already speaking with some other people who were complaining with him for the same bad service they gave to us.More

Visited with colleagues and had a lovely lunch. Food was very good - I had the calamari and chips. Sat outside so could enjoy the view of the Waterfront. Restaurant was busy but service was good.

What an terrible experience. The owner and his friend were having a bachelor party and the singer Mark Haze was performing. During his break the bachelor came onto the stage and start singing while his friend started paling with the artist guitar to his dismayed....The owner came to me and said I must stand for the bachelor performing and I told them they are unprofessional. An half an hour later the owner friend came to me and said the owner got a message for me. When I looked he gave me the middle finger. This is so unprofessional and we went to complain with the general manager but obviously he cant do anything as the owner sectioned this behavior. I will report this to the head franchise.More

My husband and I went there for lunch yesterday and what a disappointment! The food was inedible, I had ordered an Eishbein, it was dry and tasteless. The potato dumplings tasted old and stodgy. My husband had a selection of German sausages with the smallest...piece of bread and a spoonful of sauerkraut. The sausages tasted old and of bad /old oil. I couldn’t eat even a quarter of the eishbein, and didn’t bring the rest home. Not at any time did the staff ask if we liked our food……. That says something to me, like they know it’s not good, they don’t care. Don’t waste your money in this place.More

Poor Service and very mediocre food. Our starters were tasty but nothing special. My husband ordered a Caesar Salad with Chicken. It arrived without a single piece of chicken and the salad dressing arrived after he had finished his meal. The salad was just a...heap of ordinary salad leaves with a bit of grated cheese and a few bacon pieces…. And cost more than a burger. Not a sign of any other salad ingredient… and not a sign of our waitress until she appeared with the dressing after we had finished eating. I can only recommend Brauhaus for Beer…. And with the uncomfortable seating, you are perhaps better off going elsewhere. What a disappointment 😖More

We were on a Riviera tour we and a group of us c12-14 who had sort of gelled over the holiday came for a relaxed dinner on our last night. Great selection of beers and the food is top notch "pub food". Burgers, steaks, pizza's...pasta etc. If you're after a more up market meal, or a romantic couples meal then I would say this is not the place for that. It's very much a group place where you sit a long tables and chat and laugh, often loudly, over a beer. The service was good whilst we were there, couldn't complain and the general attitude towards our group from the staff was very much, great to see you, hope you're having a good time, please come again type of thing. And if I know a group of friends who are visiting Cape Town any time soon I would recommend they try it out.More

Stopped here for a cold one and some food. Welcome was good and quickly shown to a table outside. Beer order was taken, and retuned wrong, but hey, that’s okay. We probably didn’t need a litre before an international flight. Food arrived relatively quickly, and...was okay. Burger was tasty, as was chicken schnitzel, fries were soggy as were onion rings. Good for a session with mates. Go elsewhere for good burgers and if you like a crispy chip.More

I visited the restaurant last Friday. It was busy and I was alone. Moses my waiter was friendly and very helpful at first. Once he brought out my food he did not check on me again! He also left the slip indicating the food order...under a plate as if he assumed that, that was all I was ordering. I would have loved another drink and would've possibly tried another dish because the German sausage and lamb croquettes were delicious! Instead I had to go to the Maitre'd to indicate that I wanted to pay, and they then had to flag down Moses (who I could see was run off is feet with the tables he was attending to) to allow me to settle my bill. Moses did apologize for not checking on me, since I brought it to his attention. I'm disappointed and won't be back!:-(More
