I love this old fashioned pub with its great service, fibe, beer and good food. We had the seafood platter - fresh and tasty! Be sure to look for Jack, the biker dog (no lies), who has his own water bowl and standing order. The management is great - personal attention to the customers and kids.

A great place to sit in the sun at the V and A Waterfront and enjoy the sights and sounds. Could do with a bit of a scrub but as it is very popular, there is a lot of traffic. Their own brews are excellent.

Any restaurant in South Africa that can't get a basic fillet steak right doesn't deserve to be in business. This is such a location. I've not come across such poor quality, cheap steak in 3 years living in South Africa. Goodness knows where Mitchell's sources its cheap, fat ridden product. If you fancy pasta a la pure garlic, this is... More

I come here often and usually get something different to eat or drink each time. Everything I've had is great, especially the nachos and the pizzas. Staff are always friendly.
