Cool atmosphere, very friendly service though chaotic at times.
You will love the atmosphere of a mixed crowd. Fun music and vibes
Good food quality: charred fillet is awesome.
Cocktails could be better but we did not mind as we felt good there!
Definitely a place to go back to especially to start up a party night!

The bar is a crowded and vibrant place in Cape Town's Waterkant district where you can meet the local LGBT community (and tourist). Ambience is good, service comes with a smile, but the food and drinks are over priced. Read the other reviews in Tripadvisor. You'll love it, or you'll hate it.

A nice café with both indoor and outdoor seating. The falaffel burger with fries on the side is great. Service minded and attentive staff.
