Excellent place for any meal. We had dinner - both had burgers. I can recommend their Banting burger. There were so many roasted veggies that I never missed the bun. Their sweet potato chips are excellent too. Good service, good food, good price.

A favourite of locals and tourists alike. They serve a variety of burgers, pizzas, salads, sandwiches and steaks in a pub like, cosy environment. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We were staying at a B and B within walking distance and over a one week period, we went for lunch twice and dinner once and enjoyed every meal.... More

This little spot seems like a staple venue for locals to visit, families after sports activities etc. Decor is comfortable and modern. Take your pick of a relaxing chair, or at a table. Food is not going to blow you away by any means, but what is served is delicious, and a very good variety. The favourites seem to be... More

My spouse was having a double knee replacement at the nearby Rondebosch Medical Center and we came here for lunch instead of at the sad hospital cafe. So glad we did! The restaurant has the feeling of a bistro/ upscale coffee house. There is a long common table where you can grab a newspaper or sit at more private tables.... More

Our party of seven were impressed by the quality of the food. A large menu. The burgers were "awesome" as was a tagliatelli (I think) pasta. My pizza was very acceptable. The service was attentive and quick and the prices very reasonable.

Good selection of food - breakfast, lunch, dinner, and in-between. Good quality and fresh (even pizza on the menu for the kids). Friendly and committed service. Popular with couples (of all ages), for celebrations or simply to unwind and regenerate, families and friends for get-togethers, business people for meetings or to work on their laptops or tablets. Or single people... More

As we strolled leisurely into the resturant we were greeted by an extremely friendly and charming hostess whom we later found out is the owner...we had asked if we could sit outside and she mentioned the live music inside: we decided to go in, a decision we didn't regret as the atmosphere was lovely. We were not very hungry as... More

I have driven past this spot many times and wondered whether or not it would please or not. The only way to find out was to stop and give it a try. I ordered the Babe burger which was served rare as requested, contained no nasty bits and was beautifully tender. Accompanied by sweet potato chips. Nothing to complain about... More

Michaels has changed hands twice since it's BEEN owned by Michaels and has, thankfully, maintained it's top notch service offering, great food and lovely atmosphere. With the last owner renovating the venue to include a full liquor licence and bar it has continued to offer a 'smart' experience without it being a 'hushed' one. It is even a great place... More
