  • Wow! Wow! Wow! That is all I can say when I think of the burgers at this joint! Like you think you’ve had good burgers in your life, but think again! This place has ruined every otber burger place for me! Their burgers are as if a choir of angels was singing Ed Sheeran lyrics straight onto your tongue! Majestic! And their milkshakes are not to be ignored either! This place knows taste and for this reason it will be know as my favourite burger joint in all of Cape Town! In other news, the ambiance is very nice as well. If you sit outside you have a nice view of Table Mountain. Perfect for Instagram worthy photos of your burgers and shakes! One complaint though, and I hate to say it, is the service that was way to slow. And I was in my happy place because of the amazing burgers, but I still noticed the long, long, looooong wait before our waiter came to our table. This happened every single time. My girl even had to get up and find the waiter to ask for our check because I swear we waited an hour from when she delivered our desert. Overall, a very good place. Will definitely be going again. I honestly hope that they see this comment and give a huge compliment to the chefs but also a stern talking to to the waiters!

  • I went to Gibson for my Birthday twice. I took only a few of my friends we all had a burger, my one friend is a vegetarian so she had the vegetarian burgers and she it was really good. I had the Manhattan burger it was so good so it had everything to make the perfect burger it was not to dry and not too saucy. Don't get me started on how nice their milkshakes are, my one friend and I always share (she gets a flavour and I get a flavour) one because we don't know which one to choose. We always finish it. I can't wait to come back.

  • My chutney burger with cheddar,chutney and bacon reminds me of the time I lived in Johannesburg and had a toasted sandwich with their identical tasty toppings . The fries are amazing. The restaurant is really also beautifully decked out and they take bookings. I see they have uber delivery too.

  • We only eat ribs at Gibson's. The lamb and beef ribs are just so amazing and taste delicious - fall off the bone. Very nice B-B-Que sauce. Half and half fries, crispy and crunchy and you can dip them in a secret #6 sauce that is on the table. They are always busy, you should try sitting outside facing the sea and mountain.

  • Have a full color menu with pictures of the burgers and 10 pages of shakes. When served they look like the pictures, so so good. Surfer girl pics on the menu and also a "spider" surf board hanging up in the restaurant. There is a groovy bar with TV's for sport and you can sit and drink or eat. Outside was cold but they do have heaters.

  • Pulled Pork Burger and the Chicken and Creamy Mushroom with Cheese and fries was delicious. We sat inside and listened to the cool music. House wines are reasonably priced, shakes decadent with lots (100’s) of choices. No room for dessert, will be back.

The Double Bacon & Cheese Burger, no patty just lots of bacon and cheese on a soft brioche roll with all the burger trimmings. The Apple Pie & Cream Shake was delicious, so good!

  • This trendy and cool burger place is situated in the Waterfront. It has an outside area where you can eat and see the beautiful Table Mountain as well as all the boats and ships. The burgers aand fries are just awesome. They are large and tasty, the sauce is great. We had the Zola Zola Gorgonzol Burger and the President Burger with fries (handout). The Chocolate Brownie and Cheese Cake Shake are to die for. This place is so cool.

  • The burger with a brioche bun (roll) has to be the ultimate. The bun is so soft and reminds me of the Challa bread you get in the USA which is a bit yellow from the butter and egg. Love the beers on tap and the bar with TV’s playing sport.
