Fun atmosphere with great attentive waiters! We love this place and have been several times. One must go for the shows and do not leave before the waiter show. The burgers and onions are very good. A must in Cape Town.

I wasn't to impressed with this establishment. Service was ok, took my partner over an hour to get his food, that's after everyone in our party of 15 finished eating and getting their checks. Server never put his order in the system. The Drag/bingo was...More
