Description: Approximately two years ago we started researching the "Best Burger", and after visiting colleagues in Chicago, New York and Las Vegas, together with our own Master Butcher at our Sister run Belthazar Restaurant and with our 27 year factory experience, the ultimate Gibson's Burger was created.

This was by far the best Burgers I had in a long time, the texture and taste of the burgers are heavenly. There is such a huge selection of milkshakes and so difficult to choose, the one I chose was the banana banofee since milkshakes is my thing I'd have to come back to try each one of them. You have to give this place a shot, the ambience and staff is very warm and receptive

I’ve been told that their burgers and milkshakes are great. Went to check it out with some good company and I have to say that it’s awesome! Their burgers are very tasty and satisfying. And the variety of milkshakes are incredible - I thoroughly enjoyed the one I had.

Nice relaxed vibe and lovely views of the Waterfront. The staff were also friendly and helpful.

We had a nice experience and will definitely be back again.

Imagine a plate of food that is all white. White plate, white fish with a drizzle of white lemon butter on the sad piece of fish and dry white basmati rice without a drizzle of anything to maybe make it palatable... That is what they serve for R195,00. Disapointing is not even describing it. Can't recommend this to anybody. Waitresses service was good.

Dear Caren,
We are most disappointed to read your review as we are located on the harbour and receive all our fish daily which is 100% fresh.
The fish that arrived fresh that day was Kabeljou which is a white fish.
The rice that we serve is a plain white basmati rice to which we do not add anything.
The sauce we serve with the Linefish is a classic lemon butter sauce which is traditionally off-white in colour.
Most restaurants on the waterfront charge on average R250 for a Linefish dish so R195 is most certainly below market average.
The manager Caronne spoke to you about your issues and offered to replace the rice with another starch or to bring you a sauce on the side which you declined??
She furthermore deducted the price of the rice off your bill.
We are once again sorry that you were disappointed but we did try everything to rectify the situation.
Kind regards,
Guest Relations Manager

We went just for milkshakes. I had the peanut butter chocolate brownie milkshake and it was absolutely everything a peanut butter chocolate brownie milkshake should be...
Thick, dark chocolate taste, not icy, not ice cream, just rich and delicious.

Food overpriced and very average. Not 1 single table was properly socially distanced So we opted to eat inside as everyone was eating outside. Food tasted ok, but then there are many ok restaurants. Heard the owner on the radio and he was really talking it up so we thought we would give it a go. It really didn’t live up to its claims and it’s adherence to COVID protocols were suspect.
