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... read more

We went to Beefcakes for my bachelorette party and we had an absolute blast! There was some confusion about our reservation when we arrived, but the manager quickly & efficiently sorted it out & even brought us a round of shots to apologise. We got the package which included a burger, a punch jug & a round of shooters. The... More

I got a to-go sampler platter of nachos, jalapeno poppers and a few other things. All took a long time to cook and still managed to be soggy. Our hotel was practically next door, so it's not like it was transport time...everything tasted as if it been sitting in a steaming to-go box for a long time when I know... More

Don't get me wrong the waiters are very pleasant to look at but the majority of guests where female. And waiters are mostly straight. We have been three times now and every time I leave with a bitter aftertaste. I think next time somebody invites me to go here I'll pass. On top of that they are now charging for... More

We came two years ago twice, but it's not the same anymore. To start, it was full of noisy girls, very loud. We were maybe the only gay couple in the place . The bubblegum cocktail was very nice but the rest was average, the onion rings were greasy and tasteless. As well as the burgers, less than average.The waiters... More

This is a young feeling place that is all about the entertainment! Food is average burger restaurant and cocktails are good too. As a gay man in a gay venue, I actually felt in a minority amongst the customers! Everyone was friendly, and close to Crew Bar which us worth a visit after dinner

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
