Always my spot to meet friends when in Cape Town and this little gem tucked away never ceases to amaze. It is not a joint for the uber snobs or high society, but rather for the normal folk who enjoys watching the world go by and meeting ordinary folk from different backgrounds with their own distinct personality. Here you feel... More

I had the "Greek" schwarma and I enjoyed it. Portion size was very generous and the quality and flavour good. Price also reasonable. Only complaint is it could have arrived hotter. But beer was cold and shady outdoor terrase very pleasant (except for traffic on Kloof St, which of course they can't prevent). Recommended especially for a hearty yet no-fuss... More

We crawled up Long Street after taking in a show at Art Scape needing dinner. It was past 11 PM and every eatery was closed even though it was Friday night and heaving. A car guard saw us getting in and out of the car looking for open places and told us to come here. Its more a bar than... More

Really good pizza and pasta and cocktails to watch the sunset over signal hill. Lovely setting in garden like views

Cheap, cold beer and a seat under the trees on a hot day. Decent Wifi, great pizzas, great service. The best place to sit and do some work during the day, or hang out with friends in the afternoon. Shorts and a t-shirt will do, Mixas is one of the last unpretentious spots in Cape Town.

Having visited a few times before we thought it would be good to go back. I ordered the Mixa's schwarma and my partner ordered the Greek schwarma both with lamb and beef. When our plates arrived I found 3 small pieces of meat under the roast veg while my partners had the usual amount. I let the waiter know and... More

Looks can be deceiving. Its not a fancy spot but it more than makes up for it in vibe and value for money. Service is always friendly. Can sit on your own, sipping on a beer and people watch for hours or you can round up your crew and have a nice get together here, inside/outside. To be honest, its... More

Their Italian food is just to die for, a great way to sit and watch the traffic go by on a busy day.

We lived in town when this restaurant opened. We loved the open schwarma they served. We always go back here when we are in town and I must say the standard and quality as well as the quantity of the food is still the same . We love the consistency. The staff is always helpful and friendly. Definitely a place... More
