Don't go there if you are looking for the best food in capetown. If you are looking for good food interesting dishes and entertaining crew and other guest go there. The difference is always made by people...you will have a nice eveni g there

The food was ok ( chocolate chilli steak ) but the service was poor & we had a table for 3 although there was 5 of us, cramped to say the least. Reasonable prices but seems mainly to be a hang out for the young & hip CT people. It's worth a visit but I'm sure there are many other... More

My husband spoilt me on Valentines Day and pre-booked at BBC way in advance. The food was a great disappointment- over-cooked, cold, tasteless! Service mediocre, even taking into account that the restaurant was packed. Gas packed up. Felt more like the entrance to a night club. Nothing like I imagined.

Was there on Valentines day 2017, the food was very poor, ordered the Prawns, the food came in Five minutes, the dish was tasteless, looks and tasted like pre cooked and microwaved heated food. Sent back the prawns and ordered something different, slightly better but was still very average. Ordered dessert, Sorbet was out of Stock. Cherry on top We... More

This was down the road from the place we were staying at and looked interesting - the design really stands out and it was playing cool music. I loved the interior, very atmospheric. The food portions were large, great value for money and the cocktails were delicious (and also huge). A fun local dinner.

Anniversary night with a difference. We were booked at the "Love Shack", a delightful corner of the upstairs dining room. Georgia, our waitress was attentive but not intrusive. Come hungry 'cos the portions are more than generous. It can get a bit noisy later in the evening but that's part of the atmosphere at this restaurant.

My daughter had been there on a previous visit to CT and wanted to revisit it. We were 6 in total (with a small child as well). What can I say? The waitress starting by apologising over her slowish service based on the fact that she'd suddenly been given 3 extra tables. Sorry, but that's NOT our problem, that's a... More

Came here with high expectations because of the need to make reservations (first time there they were full and the only available table they had a week later was one with swings as chairs) and the rave reviews it had gotten. Ordered Donatellas (a frozen purple concoction that was delicious!} and Pesto Pasta with chicken. I jokingly mentioned to our... More
