The worst strawberry daiquiri I've ever had. They didn't put any strawberries in it and it tasted off... like a strawberry slushy with alcohol. 😑😑

I have been frequenting CM for years and after a stint in Gauteng came for afternoon tapas and cocktails. The venue is absolutely divine inside, its simple, eclectic and has an incredible energy about it. The tapas are a must... everything is good, get yourself a platter and tuck in, and go hungry. The shooters list on the wall is... More

This place has really tasty food and great portion sizes. I ordered from the tapas menu, calamari, chilli poppers and nachos - all really tasty. The large nachos are enough for 3-4 people so be careful if you do order them as we struggled to finish half of it between 2 of us. And obviously the mojitos were really nice... More

Best mojito I have ever had, very friendly bar men. Though not enough space for customers to move around, but then again that's how most bars are in Long street. It was nice to find a bar playing African music.

This is a locale hangout which is nice but it isn't really anything to write home about. The cocktail I got was good, but very sugary vs sour making it a tad imbalanced. The salad I got was good, very plain, but was at least fresh.

I acctually had a breakfast in this place, so no cocktails were consumed. breakfast had original offers, different from the boring routine. breakfast is served all day, which is good if you just woke up there from last night's hangover. central;y located in long st., and in walking distance to green market sq. and other CBD attractions.
