We came for the Wednesday burger special. The service was friendly and efficient, despite load shedding. They brought us candles and manage to cook and serve us in the dark! Big eater will be happy, as the size of the burgers and the sides are...quite consequent. Wide selection of burgers to choose from. Next time, Ill mention the waiter my cooking preference, as I found my patty overcook (I like medium rare) and therefore dry.More

Lovely balance between casual ambiance but with a clean, well maintained feel. Brilliant service. Menu is impressive but food doesn't quite measure up to the expectation (salty, dry, overdone) but this only applies to the two dishes that was had. Drink selection is a marvel!...Comfortable smoking area and they serve hookahs (aka hubbly or shisha). Prices are also reasonable. Would definitely recommend as a place to meet with friends.More

Definitely the place to be. Great customer service. Being there for the first time, the staff and waiters make you feel like you've been for the hundredth time. Justin the manager is absolutely awesome and so welcoming. The vibe, ambiance and food is really great...for a nice sundowner in a very retro setting, making you relaxed in old Hollywood right here in Cape town! - try their freshly stone oven baked pizzas - outstanding!More

well i have to say shisha or hookah in SA is very good. especially that i come from egypt and know what good shisha is. a little bit over priced in most places but its good. this place has a nice upper terrace that you...can enjoy a shisha mid day with a coffee or a drink. food is ok, you can grab a bite but don't put high hopes for something very special. Teacher was always our waiter, special thanks my friend!More

Thank you Maamoun, a lovely review albeit the food not being too special. But as always, we will strive harder and do more, until our food plucks a few heartstrings!

Very rude manageress who literally shouted at me until she was coaxed away by other staff. Their was a mix up on what the waitress said a plate of food was, and we were not only refused to be able to pay what the waitress...told us the meal cost, but very badly treated. Even though we stayed pretty polite ourselves, the situation left a very bad taste. We will certainly never go back. Food was also average.More

A few friends and I visited cafe extrablatt to celebrate my birthday only to have myself and my sister physically attacked and bruised by their managers and bouncer while trying to leave for a smoke break. Worst place in Cape Town, worst service and even...worse food. Congrats for contributing to South Africa’s biggest problemsMore

The food was very mediocre for the price point. Oily Hake that did not smell fresh. Burgers that are falling apart. The waiter had the audacity to ask for a tip after such an ordeal........More

Emsthefoodie, I am sorry to see this. People come from far and wide for our handmade burger patties - that said, there are human hands behind our patties, not machines - so I can accept that your patty was not up to our usual standard....More

Really nice meals for a good Cape Town price. I enjoyed a really good tender steak however the cooking style request went unheard, medium ended up being well done. But it was still delicious and served in good time.

I popped in to have a quick drink after a grueling 10km race 2day. Just has a Dom Pedro. Hubby has an Americano. Service was really awesome, great atmosphere and I could see people feasting away on a breakfast buffet. We had a booking elsewhere...so I didn't have food. Pleasant.More
