“Great food! Great place! Great boss!”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Sloppy Sam is the best! The food is great, the atmosphere is warm and pleasant, the service is beyond words. The owner of the restaurant is such a lovely, friendly and honest guy.
I am looking forward to going there again. I strongly recommend.

“Excellent Food and a Wonderful Find”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

I had heard that this was one of Cape Town's best kept secrets - and that is totally true. I had categorically the best tasting Kingklip I have ever had anywhere. The combination of flavours was unique - not the usual at all - and excellent. I cannot wait to try all the Lamb dishes as well. Excellent service and lovely venue. I can highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys great food in a lovely informal and unpretentious setting.

“Just average”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

Whilst staying in Cape Town we chose to go to Sloppy Sam's for dinner on a recommendation. Staff were pleasant enough but we were disappointed with the food.which we felt lacked any depth or outstanding flavours. Dissappointing.

“Wonderful ambience and great food!”
Reviewed 21 March 2014

This was our first visit to Sloppy Sam and what a wonderful experience! The atmosphere and setting of the restaurant is great and we found it by accident as we strolled past it (almost missing it!). We enjoyed some pitas with roasted brinjals, onions and garlic as well as some meat balls as starters! The roasted lamb neck and lamb chops were perfectly prepared as main courses! This is truly a hidden gem in Cape Town and we will definitely visit again!
