Visited this restaurant with some friends. Food was extremely bland and although there were only 2 occupied tables within the restaurant it seemed that because the other table had more guests the only eaiter present (which we assumed was one of the owners) tended mostly to the other table. Probably because she saw that we were locals. The food really... More

A place to visit when in Cape Town. Jimmy on the grill, God in heaven. The steaks, onion rings and service are old fashioned and make for a great evening.

The steak is to die for, a hugely underrated place to eat would suggest it to everyone. Food never not done to perfection.

Probably erring on some of the best steak I have eaten. This review would have been given 5 stars apart from the fact that the service let the overall experience down. Still given the chance we would eat here again. The food was absolutely delicious!

The steak is great, the "gent behind the grill" is something. I watched him all during my dinner - he has a smile on his face all the time. He seems to love his job - and that is how the food tastes. Restaurant is typical "local" very good in price, but the atmosphere is a little uncomfortable and loud!

What lucky people Seapointers are having this eatery on their doorstep. The welcome is always good, the service is efficient, the decoration OK but by far the most important thing the steaks are the best in town!

Whenever we come back to Sea Point we look forward to our visit to Buzbey's. It is not stylish or sleek but is perfectly well furnished in a 50s diner style. The menu is heavily focused on steak and this is the main reason for our visit. The food is presented simply with a focus on flavour not presentation. We... More

I am 45. I was by far the youngest person in the restaurant (except for the two waiterers). A grey haired cheff manned the grill. I am a good coock. He was better! This is stepping back to the type of place my grandfather would have taken us to. Please keep this a secret! Deon
