Owners description

Burger & Lobster was founded with the idea of going back to basics, to a restaurant culture where people were offered only a few menu items that have been developed to the best they can possibly be – a burger, a lobster roll and fresh lobster.

B&L also has a menu of unique cocktails – from a maple-and-bacon old fashioned to a cucumber-and-dill martini. Selected cocktails, draught beers and wine by the glass are served two-for-one from 4pm to 7pm every day.

The burger is made with highest quality natural beef from three different cuts of A-grade beef and the lobster is sustainable, sourced from South Africas South Coast or Maine, USA.

B&L offers three main meals: The B&L gourmet burger: a 250g pure steak patty stacked on a freshly baked brioche bun topped with two types of homemade cheeses, maple bacon, red onion, lettuce, tomato and home-pickled gherkins, which is then drizzled with a homemade mayonnaise; the B&L lobster roll: a lobster tail cooked in lobster butter served in a freshly baked new England-style brioche roll dressed with a light home-made Japanese mayonnaise and fresh onion chives served with our lemon butter sauce; Whole Lobster (either live South African South Coast or Maine USA) done two-ways – steamed or steamed and finished off on the grill served with lemon and butter sauce. All dishes are served with American-style skinny fries and a fresh mixed green salad.

Decadent desserts include an Oreo Nutella cheesecake or a peanut butter smore pot. Also on offer are monster shakes such as a Nutella & salted pretzel or Oreo Cheese cake.

The chefs have also created several off the menu items such as a Southern fried sriracha infused buttermilk chicken burger, lobster linguine, a 6 week dry aged sirloin on the bone, the Wolf Burger (Surf 'n Turf) and a vegetarian burger with a lentil pattie.

User reviews

  • Burger & Lobster Cape Town: By FAR the BEST food I've ever had in a restaurant!! Yes they are abit on the high side price wise, but its more than worth it. That burgers are so good, that if was the owner, i would sell it even at a higher price!!! Ive never ever been so satisfied with a restaurant before. From walking in, to ordering, to accommodating me, to explaining the food and drinks to leaving they really just surprised my biggest expectations!!! My waiter gave me amazing service!! The chef came out and talked with me and even the manager also came by!! Keep up the good work and you guys will definitely stay open!! Welldone!!!

  • B&L has a best kept secret: an ‘off the menu’ burger 🍔 Picture this - shredded Lettuce, a 250g steak beef patty, warm Brie cheese, buttery lobster meat all placed perfectly between a toasted sesame brioche. Drooling? Let’s not forget to mention the Lindt chocolate cheesecake

  • Burger & Lobster has fast become a bree street gem with some amazing offerings and specials. The place has a bit more party feel than a fine dine & has a good lobster roll @ R139. They have some very good bar food specials and cocktail specials early in the evening.
