I've eaten many times at this restaurant and the service and food was always excellent until recently. Perhaps there has been a change of ownership. The last few meals I have had there have all been poor because of the quality of the food - greasy, over or under cooked, sparse in quantity. The service level has also dropped with... More

i'm not sure what the issues have been for others, but my visit was just about perfect. The food was better than I have in most airports, the service was fast and very pleasant and the coffee was good. I stayed for almost 2.5 hours and took my time eating a full meal. Portions were decent and the food fresh.... More

Went to M and B one evening about 8.30 - very quite so asked if still open. We were assured it was and placed our order. Wine arrived and then all around us waiters started sweeping and packing chairs on tables. Food arrived and was obvious waiters were waiting for us to get out. We finished hastily and got out....

The waterfront restaurant is in a great location and is very reasonably priced. Service was really good, unfortunately the food was closer to average. Both our chicken meals were not hot enough, they were cooked well but I guess sat around for too long before being served. A thorough menu, good options, perhaps just a bad day.

Was a bit dissappointed, my friend had to send back her sauce, without it being replaced or the chef enquiring what is wrong with the sauce. There was a nice vibe around us and the waiter was very friendly

This Mugg and Bean is a really nice place for a meeting. It is quiet with just the right amount of foot traffic to make it look busy. The downside for me is that the service is really sloppy with no sign of management and never a waitress when you need the bill. Still I would go back for a... More

Had a few late morning coffees and a few people around us ordered food, it looked lovely so decided to stay for lunch. Good selection and great value (compared to UK).

My friend and i did not know anything about Mugg and Bean but we asked around and we were told that it was a solid eatery and coffee shop in Capetown for a number of years and we would not be disappointed. We were not-it was excellent. We stopped by for lunch-my friend is a vegetarian and ordered a salad... More
