Great view from the waterfront with terrible burger. All Very similar to burger king or McDonald's style. Very expensive for the patterns in the country (55 rands one bottle of water) without the expected quality

Had a great dinner, large portions. I had a hamburger, my partner the ribs. All tasted great. And options, I have never seen so many! Something for everyone.

We were there for a business dinner and there was something for everyone. Our waiter was Irvyn and he was friendly and efficient. The food was great.

Coming to Gibson's Gourmet Burgers and Ribs is going to the font for burgers, except the menu is a treasure trove for the gourmandizer. A selection of wines from the refrigerated wine console will satisfy the palate of both wine lover and connoisseur alike ......More

Best burgers in Cape Town! Freedom was our server and he was awesome! The location is perfect, too. We went here twice during our stay in the Cape.

Actually had dinner here and went back for lunch another day while visiting Cape Town. Very good burgers which is what we had both times. Friendly, attentive staff-our waiter was Freedom, and he was very good. Would definitely go back!

Being fussy with patties I can recommend Gibson's Burgers. The meat is made to your prefrence and is really tasty! Just ask for extra napkins!

Description
After 2 years of perfecting the perfect burger, we have a range of Gourmet Burgers as well as amazing succulent fall-off-the-bone ribs (pork, beef & lamb). We have just launched another 17 shakes to our already 40 Gourmet Shake range, which include Chocolate Brownie shake, Cheesecake shake as well as a huge flavour of fruit shakes (Blueberry, Summerburst & Black Cherry to name a few) and now also Gingerbread, Malva&Custard and Orange Blossom
