The best burger I've ever had

I had a Brie Burger with salad and it was absolutely amazing. The flavors of the burger, the brie, sauces and salad complemented each other beautifully.

I have come here many times and still cannot understand what the fuss is about. The burgers are fine, but nothing remarkable, especially not for their price.

Such a fun atmosphere (including the place you wait for a table, which is round the corner and then upstairs)! The burger was certainly the best I had in Cape Town (small sample size, but still very good). I went for the original Royale Burger and it was delicious; my wife had the lamb burger and really enjoyed that as... More

As always, it was great! The vegetarian burger is amazing. By far one of the best places for non meat fanatics.

Great place! As a vegan, I had so many options to choose from. Loved the falafel burger and the strawberry smoothie. A friend of mine loved the veggie chedder ans my meat eating friends loved the classic burger. They also loooved the milkshakes. Service was great! Lisa was absolutely lovely and friendly. P.S. all waitresses were beautiful! :)

Not hard to see why this Restaurant is packed every night! The burgers are, I think, the best I have had anywhere. Great atmosphere, great staff. Great all round! Long may it continue, for I shall go again.

Great burgers, great shakes, great service. What esle is there? Was probably one (two actually since I went twice) of the best burgers I have ever eaten. Low key hip place with a nice vibe.

We were looking for a place with simple quality food, and we got exactly what we wanted. The restaurant has a nice, laid-back atmosphere, with a low key yet good looking interior. We were seated in a cozy booth - a slightly tight fit for six people, but great for conversation. My boyfriend ordered the "El Burro" burger, which was... More
