We wanted to have dinner there on the terasse and we left after half hour. We did not even eat the food we ordered. The service was ok and willing but the people around us were loud, drunk and you could not understand a word. The food was poor and we sent it back to the kitchen, paid and left.

We ordered 2 irish coffees and they said it would take a while. I understand. A while being 10 min maybe 15. But 35 mins later and no drink is not... More

Tourist trap and/or heavily skewed towards being a watering hole that also serves some pub grub. Both the pizza and the sirloin essentially colorless but did the trick i.e. soaked up the Guinness... Waiter was rather unfriendly and only seemed to perk up when we requested the bill.

We came here for refuge on a rainy Monday, seeking a drink with a light lunch. Drinks, beer was good, but the food was rubbishey. We had been planning on an eclectic market 'street food' lunch so our tastebuds were not set for deepfried fare. Won't go back.

An old mate told me about this place as he had visited cape town two months earlier. I was highly suspicious as he is rather childish and juvenile so I expected it to be full of low class scum. However i found this a superb bar when i wandered down from my luxury penthouse suite i was renting leaving my... More

mitchell's Tavern was very busy on the weekend but the wait staff were attentive. The pizza choices were interesting but very good. The South African Special pizza with boerewors and avocado is worth a try.

The food & the atmosphere was excellent. I will definitely visit Mitchell's again. Could improve on the staff count as we had to wait a bit for our food as it was extremely busy but the food was worth the wait.

Four of my friends and I visited this Pub for dinner. It had a great atmosphere with a lot of outdoor seating and a live band. There were a lot of friendly patrons there, so it is definitely a social spot. I really enjoyed the two draft beers that I ordered. They are known for their "Old Wobbly" which has... More

I've always found the staff and customers friendly a good mix of locals and tourists always someone to strike up a chat with which cannot be under... More
