So my husband and I went to gibson's tonight for dinner. I had the Gorgonzola burger since I love the stuff. They put so much on that it was so overpowering I couldn't eat it. The chips were good but that's the only positive I could give it. I also had the kit kat shake that was so rich I... More

Three of us decided to were looking for a good burger, and so we decided to give Gibson's a try. Man were we in for a treat! I had the Ultimate burger, which was one of the biggest burgers I have ever eaten - no worries about walking away hungry with that one. I can't remember what the other two... More

The vibe and food are great, the latter being a little pricey by local standards. But other than that, awesome. Our waitron Irvyn brought a good few laughs to the table

We were received very friendly by the waiters while we have waited to be seated. The view from the restaurant is really beautiful, the food is great and the waiter, Irvyn, was really a very good waiter for such a big table of almost 30 guests! Good luck with choosing a milkshake to order - the variety is endless!!! Will... More

My brother and i went too Gibson's for dinner...i can definitely recommend the ribs, burgers and the salted caramel milkshakes. We had a great waiter Lebo that made sure we were looked after. If your at the waterfront definitely stop here for lunch/dinner.

It's a burger joint, and not cheap relative to the speciality offerings elsewhere in the V&A, so give it a miss.

Dear SBVonTA, thank you for your feedback. Besides saying that we are "not cheap" and people must give us "a miss", you have not commented on the food and service. We do not think this is fair. In looking at your other recent contributions, your ratings there to also look really harsh. Please could you be so kind as to... More

Whilst purveying the various restaurants, to see what was on offer, this one stood out because of its menu and the number of diners who were already eating. Always a good sign I think when a restaurant is filled with people. My wife and I were not to be disappointed when we were shown to our table. We had been... More

If you like a good quality burger, this is the place for you. Great choice of interesting toppings, sides etc. Tasty burgers. Very good chips. Friendly staff and very good value. Loads of good milkshakes etc. I would highly recommend the yogurt drink, thick, tasty and fruity. Filling portions in a nice environment in the V&A waterfront.

I visited this restaurant with my brother recently. It was quite quiet as it was late afternoon. We had the Cheese Burger and the Mushroom burger and they were great. Our waiter Freedom was really friendly and helpful and was very attentive to our needs. The only thing which could possibly have been improved would have been if the chips... More
