After having delayed flights, and landing late, we decided on Long Street, and ended up at Cafe Mojito. They could seat us immediately. It was already late, but we could still order. The service was very quick, professional and efficient. There was a live band which added to the already great atmosphere. It was however too noisy to be able... More

I found this place while I was reading an articles about nice spots in Cape Town. The journalist was right about this place. If you go there between 4 to 7 pm, you can have a cocktail for just 35R and this deal is incredible! I met some nice guys from Cape Town and I really enjoy my night there.... More

This is my #1 fav in Cape Town. The whole feel about it makes me want to travel to Cuba. Another reason I love this place is because it's the 1st place I took my partner to before we started dating so it has great sentimental value. Live bands also separate it from the rest of the places on this... More

This is a really nice spot for a drink and maybe a meal, at a very convenient location, perfect for backpackers of all ages. I say "for all ages" because the Long Street Security people chatted to us on our first night in Cape Town, and when we asked where they recommended for a drink and some music, said "Judging...
