Be prepared to see lots of bachelorette parties enjoying the drag show too, but go for the beefcake...and the burgers aren't bad either. Shout out to our waiter Jacques!

Here in Cape Town for 6 days had walked past this restaurant and clocked the shirtless waiters the next night we dropped in and yes it is full of girls on hen nights and office party's but the atmosphere is fun (if you want a quiet relaxed environment - not here!). Ordered burgers and boy were they good and not... More

Came here last night with a party of 7, we'd booked the party package at 250 rand a head as it was supposed to include cocktails, meal & the show. We found ourselves stuck out in the car park extension with a very poor view of the stage. Our waiter was cute and buff as we expected but not very... More

We met some friends for drinks at Beefcakes. They had dinner there as well. As soon as we arrived we know they had a great meal, lol, not necessarily for the quality of their meal but for the shirtless waiter serving them. And being gay, well I guess I don't have to tell you. Anyway, most of the servers are... More

I went to this restaurant bar with friends to have dinner late. Though the bar was full, we were welcomed very kindly and they managed to find us a table. The atmosphere in very friendly, and the bar is full of nice people. The service is very accurate and the owner is kind and funny. We took an hamburger, but... More

The whole experience of going to Beefcakes is great fun. If you are lucky enough to catch a drag show, it can be very entertaining. And the waiters are beautiful young boys that leave EVERYONE swooning. I have visited several times, at the invitation of friends, and always leave feeling slightly disappointed by the quality of the food. I guess... More

This was my first time at Beefcakes, and while Bingo was not the main attraction (ahem, shirtless men) the drag show was hilarious and very entertaining. Food and drinks were good but quite pricey, but as this was a special occasion and an experience then I suppose one can spoil oneself once in a while.

This burger joint is different. The show that was on was entertaining. The food was pretty standard but still enjoyable. Would have been good if the show went for longer.

I was taken to dine here with a group of 13 girlfriends to celebrate my hen night. We were warmly welcomed and shown to our table and introduced to our assigned waiter. Scary Mary started her (drag) show which was entertaining and very interactive with the audience. Bring your sense of humour with you. We shared a number of platters... More
