Food is fine, nothing special though. What it makes so special is the location and the decoration. You sit in and feel like in cuba. The outside balcony gives you a view on the ocean and in between. The trains passing through. It is the flair which makes it that authentic and enjoyable. Would definitely go back to spend some... More

I was blown away by the brilliant vibe. On a Friday night there must have been over a hundred customers all dancing and drinking - the cocktails I had were amazing and the food well recommended - well done

Had drinks and a meal here with friends. Loved the cocktails, the food was so so. However the vibe around the place was priceless. It became a sort of nightclub with music and dancing as the night wore one. Lovely evening out

This place was down the hill from our hotel and we only discovered on our last day in Capetown. The food is average and unimpressive, but then…then you open the drink menu. They have it to a science of what is 'hot', 'strong', 'contains dairy', 'sweet', etc. A drink menu that rivals the Cheesecake Factory's tablet. Impressive. So, of course... More

The owners say they are very proud of their creation proud of what ? A dump really because integrity is lacking and the customer is a source of money and not appreciated. When I was lead to my table I discerned that the chair was very wobbly and a danger I alerted a server who was so concerned that he... More

This is by far one of the best restaurants in Cape Town. The food are exelant and not to speak about the service. The staff are so friendly and helpful. And I cannot believe the prices on the menu. Not expensive at all. Will have to come back again. Must give the staff and management a big thank you. Keep... More
