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

I've been here with my boyfriend a few times, actually lately we go a lot, and I think this speaks by itself hahaha... We have had a brunch a few times and is really good. Only thing that I would recomend is to put more latino music hahaha... Everything else is really nice.

I decided to bring a couple of friends who are visiting Cape Town and WOW!.. It was a sunny day, very hot as well,... More
