Been hearing about Gibson's for a while now. As I truly enjoy a good burger I was excited to be going with my family. Two of the 3 burgers had raw burger patties however they tasted the same as the cooked patties, tasteless. Bacon wasn't great and please do not put on a slice of processed cheese. Unacceptable. Definitely not... More

As an American I'm somewhat of a burger expert. These are some of the best burgers I've ever had. The shakes were out of this world. Perfect way to get out of the hot sun and indulge in well put together menu options and enjoy v & a breezes/people watching.

My wife and I dined here during a recent trip to Cape Town. We had previously dined in a couple other nice local restaurants in the Harbor Front (Karibu and Baia), but on this night we were in the mood for a hamburger so we tried Gibson's. If you are familiar with America's Red Robin chain, you might consider this... More

with over 100 gourmet milkshakes and at least 60 burgers, you are spoilt for choice. They claim to be the best burgers in the city. I have to agree! Service was pretty good too. Certainly will be back

Excellent place to come for a "gourmet" burger meal. Good service. Beautiful view of the waterfront. And quite surprising how inexpensive it was ... a restaurant with a waterfront view like this in the US would be 3 times more expensive.

Recommended by local friends is always a good sign and Gibson's lived up to their great reputation. Wonderful burgers, chips and yoghurt shakes as well as milkshakes. Friendly staff, amazing views of Table Mountain and wonderful vibrant location. What's not to love?!
