Reviewed 8 November 2013

Gibson's specialises in great burgers. The service, on the night we were there, tops.
The wine list is limited but the wines selected are quite good.

“MOUTHWATERING BURGERS AND EXCELLENT VALUE”
Reviewed 7 November 2013

My wife and I have been regular patrons of Gibson's. This obviously means that we are more than satisfied with the quality of the food and the prices charged.

The burgers, in particular, are scrumptious and are so huge that we can never finish them.

As for the waiters, they are always friendly and pander to your every need. We will definitely be going back for more!

“Yummy food and great portions! :)”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

We found this place on our trip to the V & A Waterfront inside the entrance of the main shopping mall there. Its a lovely little place with really friendly staff. We ate here on 2 occasions and really enjoyed it. They have a range of burgers, ribs, sides and they also cater for vegetarians too! The portions were great and very reasonable in price. I would go here again if we were in Cape Town and I would reccommend it to a friend.

“Ribs to die for. ..”
Reviewed 4 October 2013 via mobile

I am a great lover of pork ribs and it is not often you come across a restaurant that serves outstanding racks.
Since my first visit to Gibson's I have been hooked. Not only are the ribs good but all there other food is as well.
Highly recommended
