I love this eating spot. I have been twice before. A burger is not on my list of things to eat BUT they make the most delicious burgers (REAL MEAT) and fries. For craft beer lovers it is popular and it has a great ambiance...More

Really lively joint with friendly service in a typically Cape Town cool place. Food was tasty, large portions and well priced. Decent selection of beers and ciders. Definitely well worth a visit !

Absolutely livid. Chips were oversalted, food came late, and the waiter didn't seem to care. Your cheese burgers were half price, I asked if you still made the vegetarian patties (veggie burgers were removed from the new menu) and requested you use one of those...More

This is an atrocious place to spend an evening. Literally everything was terrible. A really noisy, unimaginative space with uncomfortable seats. Our table was not even close to ready when we arrived. Had to wait ages. When we were seated I ordered a boerewors roll...More
