In our frequent travels to Cape Town we revisit a few Cafes and Restaurants over and over again. Why? Because we love consistency on a high level! When it for a change not come to fine dining but for a place to meet, to have a quick or a long lunch, to enjoy a Happy Hour, to smoke under a... More

Thank you IntoSA for this thorough review. It is true, we really do try and bring a touch of Germany to Cape Town, although we are not exclusively German. Our decor, ethos and large menu are all German though. No one wants to feel excluded! And yes, we do not have extravagant menu items, or Michelin star cuisine. We do... More

The portions were ok, the service was... More

William R, thank you for the input. We definitely do not work 17 hour days to do "ok"...this will need to be addressed. I want all my customers to enjoy themselves, and I know, that it in all probability - it is impossible, but I can try. We have a large menu and try to cater for all tastes, nevertheless...We...

The food was tasty and there was plenty of it, a bit too much to be honest but I did my best and ate it all. The cafe also has a bar and a spacious dining area. The staff were friendly and the service was quick. They have a large menu so something for everyone.

Have been to a couple of these in Germany and as I know it: fast and efficient service at very good quality and prices! Love the German specialties on the menu. Very good beer, wine and spirits collection, again, very affordable too. Well done.

I went here for dinner by myself and couldn't have been more pleased! Ate in the outdoor seating upstairs and had the nicest waiter. I ordered the baked potato with a bunch of toppings and it was GIANT. Could not finish the whole thing but it was delicious! Prices reasonable and lots of options on the menu. Would definitely go...

There are plenty other places to eat in cape town. Only good thing you can get here is a drink I mean.... Who can screw that up? Burgers are a waste of time and manager is rude
