Fun dinner

My partner and I, with a few friends arrived here by accident after a sunset cruise. Really friendly welcome from the host. We sat at front just as show began. Service excellent. Our waiter Anton was great. Burgers, cocktails, show and atmosphere all great. Recommended for fun, fast food.

I took some friends down to Cape Town for a weekend break away and made a reservation at Beefcakes. From the moment you make your reservation (with their quirky voicemail) right through to the show and the waiters - it all says fun! What a great night out and good value for money - keep up the excellent work!

Arrive here on a Friday evening just as the drag performance was finishing, would have been nice to see the whole show. A very welcoming host and a fantastic waiter too. The best waiter Anton was serving tables very nearby and he seemed to be the most popular of the lot! Really friendly atmosphere. Was funny seeing a group of... More

Popped in here with friends and we were just in time for the show and had cocktails and burgers with a lovely waiter called Anton. Pop in- you will love it.

We booked a table for dinner online (very quick process) that also allowed you to change or cancel it online. There was a drag show that was really entertaining and got the whole crowd on their feet and in stitches!! This is added to your bill, so if on a budget, make sure about the times of the shows.

I was there for a hen night on Saturday 21st November, and had just landed that afternoon, showered gotten ready and out the door for a eagerly anticipated hen night. The evening itself was OK, out seats were outside as opposed to in the bar area which wasn't great. The drag acts were OK, although living in Essex, there are... More

My friends took me here on the promise of a gay night out - it was actually quite fun, the drag act was a laugh and the vibe was cool - but - if you've been to gay clubs before it isn't anything special. Everyone was lovely, I juts found it funny that most of the bar men are straight... More

The mix is young metrosexuals, male wait staff, some drag shows, and THE place for bachelorette parties or parties in general. We went as a stop for Halloween. The food is good, service fun and entertaining just to people watch. Its best between 7 PM-10 PM before your other night life. Its very reasonably priced too...as is all of Cape... More
