Very popular venue which was close to where we stayed in Cape Town so we often visited at night. Friendly staff good selection of drinks and food especially the variety of Tapas dishes.Ideal for sitting outside as the weather was hot but limited space inside.

One of my favourite places with a ton of memories. The best beer garden in Cape Town. Friendly staff but service might be slow.

A group of friends and I went to Roxy’s looking for a place where we could catch up after not seeing each other for a few weeks. I have had pleasant experiences at Roxy’s before, but last night was absolutely shocking. The bartender was cocky and entitled as well as the one male waiter who was “serving” the outside area. My friends and I had gone into the space with a good energy and the barman’s attitude completely put us all off as soon as we walked in. He was coercing us into buying more drinks than what we wanted and when we declined he would get progressively more rude. Eventually we went outside to have our drinks. Two of my friends decided they’d like to order food. The young male waiter with curly hair ignored us multiple times and when we finally got his attention he was SO inattentive that we had to call upon (a way friendlier and much more welcoming) waitress. My friends and I paid our Bill and shortly after the male waiter came back to our table and aggressively said “well are you unhappy with the service? Are you just not going to tip”. Shocked by what we had just experienced with the rude waiter - we tipped the waitress a good amount. Sorry to say I won’t be going back anytime soon. They need new staff and a huge wake up call. I’d rate this place half a star if I could. Definitely not a place to visit unless you’re wanting to be treated like scum.

Not very impressed on this visit. Quality of food was not worth the price. Rude waiter, dirty tables. I don't think I'll be back.

My partner and I decided that we would want to go to Roxys for dinner. We were “welcomed” by the rudest and most dismissive waiter I have ever come across. It was raining when we got out of the car so we rushed to the door which had a sign written in pencil that we had to use the other entrance. The waiter points at the sign and we walk around to get to the other door. “We have a sign on the door if you can’t see”, was the first thing to come out of his mouth. I told him that it was raining so we just rushed to try and get inside. I asked if we could get a table for two & his reply was, “no only tables for 7”. I could obviously see there were tables available. He stared at me for a solid minute with a straight face which made me feel extremely uncomfortable & then burst out laughing to say that there are tables. He told us to go find one upstairs. Firstly, as a customer coming in I would like to feel welcome however I immediately wanted to leave once this happened. Secondly, the joke was not funny whatsoever because he was the only one laughing. After my partner and I found our table, we ordered our drinks and waited for about 15 minutes to order our food. The waiter, during this time comes to check up on two tables next to us but not to our table. We were one of three tables upstairs - not asking if we have been helped? He decided that he would instead ignore me once I tried to call him and go play pool. This was 20 minutes in to my first time at Roxys. It was around this time that we just got up, paid for our drinks and left. After 20 minutes! I did not want to spend another minute in that place with such a terrible energy in that space. Once we paid I went up to him asking what his name was and with a straight face he tells me his name. Then continued to stare at me directly in my eyes. As a woman, I also felt extremely weird that he was doing that and it made me feel extremely uncomfortable. I spoke to the manager as we left but it was not enough to leave it there unfortunately as it didnt look like he would even do anything. I never expected Roxys to hire people like this, however all I know is that I will never come back.

Hi Andy, firstly my profuse apologies that one of our colleagues treated you this way and that you had such a horrid experience. If I could ask you to mail me marvin@roxylatenight.com with which day exactly it was so I can chase it up and make sure this never happens again. Once again really sorry that your first experience at Roxy was so blegh and if you ever do feel like returning and allowing us to put a better foot forward. Let me know. Marvin

I went with 2 other friends late night after mid night. This place was so accommodating and welcoming. We got a variety of food and everything was really good. I got both crack bacon wings and regular wings and both were fantastic but the crack bacon wings were both amazingly different....wonderful. Frank got a burger and it was huge and he loved it. Tobias liked his ceasar salad but thought the dressing had to much oil....but was still tasty. The service was outstanding and were given a list of other places to visit in the Cape.... I will be back before I go to joeburg..... just for my new addiction to crack bacon wings....wow!

Very impressed with Roxys Late Night Diner! Same great consistency for the past 20+ years. Decided to hit the place after a great date night on the town. Had the veg burger and chips - quality! Wife had the hot chocolate. Great place will be back!

The burgers here are really good! I had the ostrich burger with a whole load of toppings. My friend had the crumbed chicken burger... Both were awesome. Fries were really good too. Good value for money but beers are a bit expensive. Waiter was friendly and did a good job!

I dont usually write reviews but wow last night was probably the worst experience I have ever had at a bar. First of all the R10 special is now only on tiny beers (250ml) of some random brand. After ordering we were told they ran out, only to see people still ordering them from the bar. So we ended up having to order other drinks which are pretty expensive even for Cape Town standards. We were sitting at an indoor table near the bar which was pretty busy so when more of our friends arrived we moved the table sideways to get more chairs around the table without blocking the bar. We got told off by the waiter that "we don't move tables here". Even though we were trying to be more considerate and not block the bar? We asked for the bill which took 25 minutes to arrive. Only to be told the card machines are not working. Apparently they have no back up, no nearby atm, and no snapscan/zapper. The waiter told us we would have to EFT. I'm sorry but what? Half our table were from oversees so to EFT would cost them a fortune. The waiter seemed very unwilling to help or even try think of alternatives. Apparently this happens multiple times a week? Finally after 30minutes of back and forth he finally realised there was a working card machine. With so many great bars around Cape Town we won't be coming back.

I've walked past Roxy's on numerous occasions but have never gone in, until yesterday. The delightful Mimi welcomed us in and the staff made us feel like we were long lost friends being welcomed into their home. We had the Crack bacon wings as a starter. I'm not a wings fan but these were so tasty. For mains we ordered the Buttermilk fried chicken burger and the lemon, chilli and garlic calamari. Both were to die for. As it was getting a bit chilly outside, we moved upstairs and chilled on the couch. We had their homemade hot chocolate as dessert and it was presented beautifully. I can highly recommend this place.

We stayed in the hotel right across the square. We thought, that Roxy was just a bar, but it has very good food too. We had the Ostrich-stack, which was very good and sooooo huge. The staff is a bit crazy and very very friendly. Only one negativ thing: The sound system seems to be quite old. The music sounds horrible.

A great little off the beaten track cafe. Lots of interesting patrons. Although not a hipster, actually pretty nerdy I felt completely at home. The absolute best serving staff I have encountered in a very long time, outstanding teamwork 👏

My buddy has been saying for a while, “come and join me at Roxy’s.”So a long weekend was approaching and we ate there. There is a hip and earthy crowd frequenting this joint. A nice relaxed cool atmosphere. A fantastic scope. That said, I had a massive burger which I can recommend. I would probably chalk this one as a drinking spot at night with the option to eat good wholesome bar ish food. Pretty busy. Service was great.

SANDWICHES ON STEROIDS I love it. Chicken mayo sandwich with avocado and pepperdew on a bed of lettuce and mayonnaise. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was phenomenal as we got along so well with our friendly waitress. Everytime I head through to Roxys I ALWAYS share one of these because they are so generous with their servings. If you're in Cape Town, head through to Dunkley Square and try out their gourmet sandwiches, cheesy nachos or piping hot corndogs. You can thank me later.
