Divine chicken!

OMG, the chicken strips are to die for! To be honest, I really didn't have much. Just stopped off for a quick bite. I ordered the strips and a soft drink. But they do a half price cocktail hour from 4-7 every day and 11pm-12pm too.

Disgustingly dirty, bad service, worst cocktail I have ever had ! Ok it was 'happy hour' (not for us!) but the quality shouldn't be any less, I do expect some alcohol in my drink + not just a (dirty) glass of fruit juice. Toilets are abysmal. Staff were shouting + screaming at each other. All in all a very unpleasant... More

This is the one venue that kept us coming back for more in central Cape Town. The staff were great and very friendly. Their cocktails were a blast and the food was simply divine. We cannot recommend their angry prawns enough! We only had one criticism and even that isn't enough to keep us away in future...that was the music... More

Had a late lunch there with my family. Good food, fair value for money. Large portions. Service was nice but couldn't understand why the waitress asked us to pay our bill in the middle of our meal because they were about to change shifts(!!). That was odd...

LOVE LOVE LOVE The service and food is amazing. Being a regular I have gotten to know the team and management. Kenneth has a hands on approach on the business that makes it feel like home away from home.He takes time to converse with every one and make sure that the experience you have time after time is always memorable....

Dropped in here while wandering along Long Street. Good choice of food with daily specials. They had 2 for 1 on burgers when I went. Good friendly service but slow. Nice for a chilled meal or drinks

What a nice Location...Mojito it shouts out..but not blow away stuff...service well yes... NO. Friendly peeps but where are you we are thirsty.. Food mediocre.. Owner Kevin mingles with patrons, cigar dangling between his fingers so thats a plus for the cuban style. Bob Marley doing his thing in the background.
