Lovely show although a bit on the amateur side. Food menu very limited and wine is ridiculously expensive. Manager has no clue about what customer service entails and walks around like a Meter Maid instead of checking on patrons. Waiters very friendly.

APART from that, this is a... More

Scantily clad barmen and overpriced burgers make for an evening out at Beefcakes. Add the fact there nearly all hen-parties in the Southern Hemisphere are held there and you get a pretty good idea of what to expect. Everyone should go once. And possibly only once. They do have (some) good drag-shows on Thursdays. Booking essential. They may be pink,... More

If in Cape Town please visit this restaurant. They have nice entertainment to light up your evening. And the burgers are a must to try. If you enjoy eye candy you will enjoy the staff. Service are also good. Thanks to management and staff for making our evening out the best night out in Cape Town

Had dinner with friends on Wednesday evening 16 July 2014 and the manager that was on duty had a stinking attitude. No way of dealing with guest. All the hard work and good services by the host and waiter was over shadowed by the managers attitude.

My favourite is still b+++ bingo - but Princess Pop entertained us on Wednesday night! Good burgers, good vibe - good entertainment! Have to agree with many other reviewers - it is expensive. But always a... More

The food was okay, but I am not really sure people would go here for a genuine sit down meal but rather the entertainment and the topless waiters (who remove their shirts at around 21:30 after getting up on stage) was an interesting addition. The first time I went here, I really enjoyed it as the food and the service... More

Great fun, although cocktails are very expensive and food is not amazing, the show and waiters alone are worth the visit!

Definitely a place to go for an evening to remember. The staff great fun and extremely good looking. If you like burgers you're in for a treat. Of course the body shots are good too :-)

Very disappointing burgers for anyone used to the real thing. Started out as a hot gay focused burger joint that has now become a hangout for lonely straight women wanting to peek at topless waiters. Another version of Hooters!
