Excellent food, great vibe. You have to visit! Meet the owner and locals in this cozy tapas bar, open in the evenings in a side street of Muizenberg.

A friend and I had a quick dinner at Oroboros last night...they were fully booked and packed to the gills but we managed to find a small table to perch at. It's a small, eclectic space and has a great bustling atmosphere with the quirky patrons you would expect in the Deep South. Sidney, the waiter/barman was friendly and efficient and managed to churn out 26 margaritas (from scratch with a retro lemon press nogal) in the time that we were there! Everything is tapas style served with bruschetta so don't go expecting huge plates of food. We had 2 portions of the pork loin ribs which were falling off the bone and swimming in a garlic, ginger and orange sauce - lovely flavours and my favourite dish of the evening. We also shared prego prawns (a bit under-seasoned for my taste), chicken livers, and patagonian calamari which was succulent and came with a side salad.
With 2 beers and one pricey Margarita (only discovered it costs R70 when I perused the slip at home) our bill came to R404. It’s the kind of place where everyone would quickly learn your name and treat you like a regular..I'd go back for late night snacks or drinks on a weekend - would imagine it must be fun if they pump like that on a Tuesday night!

Edit: in case I've created the impression that this is party central for young hipsters, the crowd last night was 90% "mature" so young and old would feel at home here...
