There is really not a lot of places for a vegetarian to eat in Cape Town, unless you want to eat pizzas or indian mealss all the time. This place is an exception and there is a good range of vegetarian / vegan meals on offer. We went early afternoon and everything was superb, the friendly service and the tasty... More

We LOVED the food. The service was a tad disappointing though. My boyfriend and his family were visiting from the States. So we ordered bottled water of course as they couldn't drink our tap water. The waitress instead brought water in glasses and seemed a bit annoyed that we wanted four bottles of water. She brought with a fake smile.... More

Glorious. The food is outstanding and the vegetarian and vegan options fantastic. The service is relaxed, yet very attentive. Fantastic option if you are looking for honest food and meeting real people in a city always looking for the next best thing.

Definitely worth a visit. I was there twice, alone and with friends. The service is good and friendly, the food 's quality is great (be not afraid to try the ostrich burger!). I can only recommend it and will be back again when in Cape Town.

Fantastic food and drinks menu. food was amazing to eat. only thing to let down is the shocking, lazy not bothered attitude of the staff service. staff didn't know what food they were delivering to table. even though they took same order. Had to ask 4 times for bill. Other wise great food just work on your service.

Read good reviews for this place so I gave it a try. Incredible! Excellent service and a great menu. I had a burger with carmelized onions and chipotle sauce. Cooked to,perfection. But the highlight was the fresh strawberry and mint milkshake. It was so good I went back the next night for another one.

13 of us went to celebrate a birthday. We were seated upstairs. Remember when booking if you want to sit on the balcony you need to book it. Service was prompt. Great selection of burgers and well priced. They let us supply our own cake and even out candles in it for us. All round recommend this place on Long... More

The burgers and sweet potatoe chips were good. Just a pity that the food was not hot. Service and the ambience of the restaurant was pleasant.

We were walking in the area and were hungry for lunch. Passing the restaurant we noticed it was full and the burgers looked great. The burger menu had all sorts of interesting combinations, and you could add extras. I had a veggie burger with sweet potato fries and my husband a classic with extras. Both delicious and we will be... More
