Only went for drinks after dinner nearby so there was a small cover charge for the drag show. "Beefcakes" delivers with about eight bartenders/waiters showing off their beef. Princess was very interactive with the crowd of men and bridal shower groups. Worth a visit for drinks or a meal.

Since the hen parties started and the place is a heaving female predators' paradise, we stopped going there. It used to be exclusive and gay, now it is a messy noisy screaming cleavage contest!

My wife and I had a casual simple lunch. Food was good. However the arrogance and sense of entitlement from our waiter was a first we have every had. From the start it was uncomfortable. Cutting a long story short, the Bill came to 230 Rand. I only had 2x 200 rand Notes. i.e 400 rands. and the "smart alec"... More

Nice for cocktails before dinner. Love the cute waitors and there are some drag shows some evenings. Hate the fact that all the ladies have taken over the place and there are hens parties every evening.

Will not be to everyones taste but if you enjoy a truly camp experience then this a must. We enjoyed the drag show and the waiters are very fit and get their tops off later. A mixed crowd and everyone made to feel very welcome but you need a sense of humour!

I went twice within two weeks to watch 2 different Drag Queen shows with friends. It was lots of fun. The manager was very kind as well as the staff who consists of young muscled guys in tops, which they had to take off after the show. No wonder why it is a popular place for hen's night celebration.

Princess Pop is so talented. Haven't rolled over laughing so much in ages! Awesome service from our young (yes...ripped ladies!) Waiter and fantastic selection of burgers! For fun and entertainment with a twist you MUST go!

What a hoot! We managed to get a couple of seats at the bar (the place was booked out) and I had one of their chicken burgers ... it was great! An awesome selection of cocktails to choose from too. At 8.30pm they have a show which was a lot of fun (normally a drag queen singing). The bar staff... More
