“local bar with below average food”
Reviewed 21 January 2013

Food was below average, well priced and big portions but i wanted less quantity and more quality.
The place is always buzzing with local ( and mainly older) crowd.
Not the place to go if you want to enjoy good food in peace but great for a quick drink and some company without breaking the bank.

“Down to earth Cape Town”
Reviewed 12 July 2012

Mixa's has been my haunt for years and I am especially glad that they traded the overstuffed scruffy couches for tables and chairs. Kind of horrified by the big screens put in for World Cup. The mix of young, old, pensioner and hipster keeps conversation interesting. My favourites on the menu are still the nachos and cheese or the Mixa burger. Won't be surprised if its from the Sweeny Todd recipe, they're that good. Great place to let your hair down and you can smoke inside and out.

“Relaxing, tasty food”
Reviewed 27 May 2012

Impromptu visit on a Sunday night after a walk on the Sea point promenade, had Schwarma's. Huge portions, afforddable prices. I prefer sitting outside!

“Nice spot”
Reviewed 23 May 2012

Mixas is the kind of place where the "locals" gather for after work drinks and weekend lunches etc. The food is good and the staff friendly, just be sure to double check that they understand your orders because I have had my order taken wrong ( I asked for no olives and onions on my pizza but got them anyway) , I must add that the manager was very helpful when I pointed out the mistake and so the rest of my evening was nice. The regulars are very friendly and their happy hour specials are great!

“Wake up!”
Reviewed 23 December 2011

As a Hindu who doesn't eat beef I specifically asked the waiter for a lamb option. I was assured i would receive a lamb shwarma but was horrified when, after tasting the food, to discover it was a combination of lamb and beef! I was deeply offended and disgusted at the lack of sensitivity. Even though I was offered a chicken shwarma at that stage i was completely nauseated. This is a lesson where a decent venue can be brought tumbling down by ignorant and insensitive and indifferent waiters!!
