don't expect fine dining, but the food is tasty, cocktails tasty, and the vibe is fun. between old school hip hop playing through the speakers, to a live afro-jazz type band - how could you not have fun!

Fun night out. You need to get the waitresses attention early and then the drinks will come to the table. Beats queuing at the bar. Had a super three-piece band. Very reasonable prices.

Simple place to chill. You can enjoy live bands almost everyday. Service is very good. I highly recommend to sit outside during sunny summer day. During winter, sit inside next to the fire place !!

This is definitely one of my favourite night spots in Cape Town. The cocktails are amazing and the food is delicious (especially the ribs and stuffed peppers). They also have great deals and specials on cocktails - if I am not mistaken from 5 - 6pm and 11-12pm. Service can be slow at times especially when the restaurant is packed.... More
