“Fun, vibey and eclectic”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

Lots of fun things to look at, good food and vibe. Will definitely go back, it was a great evening out. Prices a bit on the high side, but well worth it for the venue and vibe.

“An eccentric venue!”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

This restaurant has something very whimsical about it. The eclectic array of displays greet your eyes as you enter the front door - and you might be lucky enough to sit at their swings!

The price is right at this restaurant and the food just speaks for itself! Have their signature dish - the Chocolate Chilly Steak and you will be whisked away to a tasteful adventure. However it took me almost three months to get a reservation so make sure that you call or email them as soon as you can!

“Crazy and fun atmosphere with some interesting food options!”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

This is a very fun place with an interesting atmosphere that I highly recommend to anyone looking for something different then the norm in Cape Town! The special on the night I was there was Wildebeest steak which was cooked perfectly and was delicious! The staff was very friendly and some even enjoyed doing tequila shots with us. A great time for sure!

“Funky Decor Fabulous Food”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

This is a place where girls and boys come out to play in the Mother City. The ambience has a theatrical tone and diners dress up or down. Anything goes. A perfect venue for a party or a fun high energy night out. Decor is an eclectic ensemble of kitsch – bric –a- brac displayed with flair and unabashed humour. Glorious mix of music sets the mood for levity and laughter. We celebrated a birthday at Bombay Bicycle Club, and there were twenty of us seated at two tables set together in a snug corner. The restaurant was full but our dishes arrived simultaneously which we appreciated. We chose the set menu which was excellent value for money. Food was well prepared, plated with a flourish, delivered with great dexterity - generous portions left us satiated and feeling simply fabulous!

“Ll”
Reviewed May 23, 2013 via mobile

Not the restaurant if you looking for high cuisine or refined dining and whing a la francais but for a funky night out - especially with a crowd - this is fun, eccentric in nicest way. Expect the unexpected!
