Interesting...

Popped in on return to our accommodation for a burger. The food and service were great and it had a raucous atmosphere that was building to the Friday night cabaret. It is very obvious were you get inside what the selling point is but it was also full of mixed parties all having fun.

Decided last minute to come here instead of Cafe Manhattan. Arrived 2 minutes before the drag show started. And my - what a great time we had. Had a rocking good time! One queen could really sing - she was belting it out. Another could dance - really rocking it. Of course the finale was when the waiters took their... More

beefcakes is a great spot for early drinks and a very decent dinner. if u dont mind being among dozens of girls celebrating birthdays or bachelorette of course. started as a gay only spot became the favourite place for the female crowd due to the very beautiful employees who after a certain point take their tops off. Really good drug... More

A friend had her hen party at Beefcakes the other evening, there were twenty-five of us.. We all paid for our meal and the show in advance, a R260 a head, and drinks were to be paid for individually at the bar. The food was extremely disappointing, only a small dry burger each with very inadequate bowls of toppings supplied... More

Had my 45th birthday party there on Wednesday evening. Had a absolutely fabulous evening. Read some reviews that to many hen parties and too many women!! So much for equality..... We were a group of slightly older gay men but we had a great time. The Drag show Mary Scary was on fire with the whole room, included everyone in... More
