Meat was excellent, service was swift and impersonal. Great if you want a quick meaty meal. The premises are excellent and the terrace has a good view

We love coming to Gibsons but were disappointed in our last experience . Surely a burger restaurant should have fresh burger rolls?? Milkshakes are great

Dear Sam, my apologies that you found the rolls to be stale. We use only freshly baked rolls, that are delivered twice a day to the store. The roll has been designed to be firmer then a regular soft supermarket roll. On order, each roll is lightly toasted before making the burgers. We look forward to having you dine with... More

OK, this is not going to win 'the is typical South African food' award, but for burgers it's difficult to beat. The calamari starter was excellent but the portion a little mean. Burgers were excellent although mine could have been warmer. The place was fun and buzzing but the server did a good job. My wife couldn't decide which Sauvignon... More

Gibson's is one of our family favourites - great burgers, fab ribs and an enormous selection of delcious milkshakes - what's not to like? This is why we chose it as the venue to celebrate the end of a successful school and work year and the start of the Christmas season. The prices are horrific. I get why the humungous... More

We were in Cape Town for 6 nights and ate at Gibsons for three of them because the food was so good! We tried the chicken burger, beef burger, ribs and salad. All were so good! We also had the brownie milkshake which was the best milkshake we have ever had. None of this however compares to the service we... More

With over 100 milkshakes to choose from, there will be one that you will like. The burgers are massive and the options are pretty impressive. Good vibey place to grab a burger and shake, but they also have a good selection of craft beers. Be prepared to be STUFFED! Double thumbs up.
