The people there are great, it is a very local place. Its a bit dark inside, but it matches with the bohemian mood, so embrace it. The food is also delicious and a bit spice. So, come have drinks and have fun!

Not your average type of looking place, but very nice an cozy. I had the roast beef and my wife the fillet fig special. First rounds of steak were cooked well done instead of the rare we ordered. We send I back and received perfectly cooked steak after that. 2 problems thou, the oven roast was definitely not oven roast... More

Xtremely filling meals in very kitsch deco with very mixed crowd of hipsters, loud beer drinkers, bikers, tourists and odd riff-raff passing by ... go for the surf & turf and u will be full for days !

I have traveled widely and I consider this to be quite a dining experience. One of the tables has swings for chairs. There are props, furniture and beds hanging off the ceilings... The bar is perfectly placed to deliver a vibe into the restaurant. We had their signature dish - steak with chocolate chilli sauce - we all thought it... More

Great atmosphere, cozy but lively at the same time. Great crowd, great drinks (EXCELLENT martinis) and very tasty food. I'm Italian so I'm usually very picky about italian food, and this place really impressed me. Strongly recommended if you want to spend a fun night with a really nice crowd and great food and drinks

So we started at the bar and the barmen were awesome. We were there for happy hour and certain cocktails were two for the price of one. Prices ranged from R45 to R52 depending on what we had. The cocktails flowed and a good time was had. Tequila shooters were R25.00 a pop. We then moved to our table. The... More

I love this bar. If you're looking for a fine dining, wine and chatter then don't come here. Come on people this is a party bar. The food may not be top stuff but come here for the smells, drinks, 2-4-1's and music.

The quirky eclectic décor is certainly an attraction and so is the chocolate chilli steak. Beyond that the food really isn't much to shout about at all The ribs are standard buy-off the shelf style with BBQ sauce that you heat up. I suppose I was hoping for freshly grilled with a delicious zingy sauce! The other two dishes were... More

I was so excited to go to BBC after hearing all about it and knowing it was part of the Madame Zingara Group which I've been to many times and always loved. On arrival it looks fantastic with the quirky fun décor, great music and really nice staff however looking closer, the décor is a bit grimy and tired especially... More

One of the highlights of my trip to Cape Town. Totally funky place who take their food, but not themselves, seriously! Filet is some of the best you'll ever taste. Cocktail menu is most excellent-- try the mojitos! Make reservations early and ask for the swing seats in the window.

Thank JLG72
