Review of Burger & Lobster

Burger & Lobster
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: Fast Food
Description: Burger & Lobster was founded in 2016 with the idea of going back to basics of a restaurant culture where people were offered only a few items that would get people talking - a burger, a lobster roll and fresh lobster. The First B&L in South Africa started in Cape Town on Bree Street. B&L has a world renouned cocktail bar offering the best original cocktails in Cape Town made with all home-made ingredients. B & L is a trendy and vibey place that gets people coming back. The Burger is made with highest quality natural beef and the Lobster is sustainable live lobster. Each dish developed the best it can be, surrounded with good people and great energy.

We booked here after reading reviews on TripAdvisor. Lovely vibe, LOADS of burger/sub options and great cocktails. There was one cocktail we tried but just couldn't drink as it tasted of soap and the manager very kindly removed it from our bill and seemed genuinely interested in our feedback. Food was delicious. Clearly a popular place. There was a very large (and noisy) xmas party whilst we were dining and you could tell almost all the other tables were being completely drowned out by their humdrum. But that's the time of year I guess. Glad we tried it but would probably stick to more authentic SA food when we return.

Dear Atkos

Thank you for joining us during your stay in SA. Once again we are terribly sorry regarding the cocktail but we are pleased to hear the Team dealt with it professionally. We appreciate your feedback and yes it is that time of the year as B&L is perfect for year end functions / special events. Enjoy the rest of your trip in SA.
