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

We had so much fun here! We were a group of 4 friends celebrating New Year's Eve, and we had a wonderful time! Our waiter was super fun and the drag show was amazing! They think about every detail here, even the bathroom has a Disco bowl!

Have visited a couple of times before, love the vibe, fun shows, but most of all, some of the best service you will ever experience. Staff is friendly and well presented (gorgeous), and very helpful. Food is good, menu easy to understand, and love the decor. Expensive but worth the visit.
