Not my favourite place in Cape Town as it can get quite busy and noisy, but the food is surprisingly good for a pub! Love their bar snacks, calamari and potato wedges are yummy! Very reasonably priced food, so real value for money.

The bar is very nice and serves good food. However I would recommend they employ more waiters because there is quiet wait once one has ordered, especially the drinks. Sunday was a long wait for service.

The only outstanding positive of staying at the Best Western Cape Suites Hotel is the presence of the Just Chilling Brasserie and Pub.

JC is a nice pub with a good atmosphere, however not suitable if you are in a hurry and just want a quick bite to eat. The Pub grub is good, but it takes forever to come out. The service for drinks is not particularly fast either. What is very fun is the Quiz night on Wednesdays.

Had the lamb burger with sweet potato fries. Absolutely delicious and did not wait long for the food. Staff are quick and friendly. You've earned a regular.

Had a meal and drinks with my son. A good variety of meals and selection of craft beers on the menu, all very reasonably priced. Good vibe, especially when sport on the TV. Service great for what is expected of a "local"
