I had the vegetarian eastern burger, and I was really disappointed with the taste of the burger overall. The presentation was great, but the taste of the patty was bland and nothing like the description of the burger. The service of the waiter that served my friend and I was slow, even when we kindly told him we were in... More

Had steak perfectly cooked and chicken breast with peri sauce! Both delicious! Wine and drinks lovely. Great service and chat with Irvyn! Too late to see the view but excellent setting.

The burger menu is impressive as is the shake menu! It was truly hard to make a decision. Everyone enjoyed their meal, and would definitely return!

Went here after reading about them on TripAdvisor and we were not disappointed. The burgers are pretty wow, really fresh and tasty, so many different toppings to choose from. We also had some regular milkshakes which were large and very good. We found the value to be good. My only issue was with the waitress who served us, she didn’t... More

The place is lovely. My husband and I ate lunch there outside on a beautiful day. Service was great and so were the fries. The burger was terrible (I bit into hard pieces of something unidentifiable), the chicken wings had an awful sauce, and my husband's chicken burger had some sort of sauce on it that was unpleasant. We will... More

My boyfriend and I ordered a Gibson's House Salad for 80 Rands (mixed of leaves, red cabbage, tomato, cucumber, onion, eggs, carrots with feta cheese) and Smoked BBQ Pork Ribs for 190. They came really fast and were delicious, but I believe it would be better if the ribs were more tender and had more meat. Very good service! Meu... More

Gibson's has a great location at the V&A with outdoor seating. I had the nutella milkshake and it was very good. While the burger ingredients were creative and out of the ordinary, it was far from the best burger I've had. Who knows, maybe as an American I'm spoiled. I had the Tex-Mex burger and it was just messy and... More

Dear Essie86, thank you for the review and my apologies that you did not enjoy your burgers with us. Our Mex Tex is one of our top selling burgers, so I am sure maybe the taste profile for someone from afar is not the same as our local palate. We hope that you will try us again.
