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.

Than it seemed that we were getting a very nice waiter. He was very kind and was doing everything to get us satisfied. First I... More

This is supposed to be a fun place to hang out! The service is terrible if you are not part of the happening crowd out on a hooly (binge party) with everyone who just wants to drink the night away! The supposed muscled mary waitrons are pretentious, their beef burgers are horrible and so is the atmosphere unless you are... More

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 blah. It was just a boy in a dress. Nothing to brag home about when... More

I visited Beefcakes for a 21st birthday. The cocktails were fantastic however took a while to be served. The beef burgers were too rare for my taste however my friends assured me that they were tasty. The evening was lots of fun and the entertainment was superb.

Food is very average. Entertainment is ok, we were seated outside because we had a big table so couldn't see the show. The waiters are great though.

You go there for the drag show which is very good and lots of fun. The burgers are very good. Service is all about selling and tips. Everything a bit overpriced but still a fun night

Visited Beefcakes for our last evening in Cape Town. Billed as dinner and theater, it was a great night. Great looking boys who serve and are very attentive waiters followed by a hilarious and energetic drag show. Burgers are served and they were delicious. Any number of cocktails are offered as well as a selection of beers. If you're looking... More
