“Good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Great food, delicious shakes (just be wanted they are massive, and could literally be shared between 3 people!). Nice atmosphere, and relatively good service - although this tends to slip when it's busy.

“Great burger selection, only one bad experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014

I love Hudson's. I usually frequent the Kloof Street branch, but visited the slightly bigger Green Point branch in the week with friends. I love the Bacon Jam and the Ostrich one (think it's called the La Di Dah). Service is good and their fries are amazing. However, when I visited the Green Point branch, there was a hair in my Ostrich patty. This totally put me off the rest of my food. They have a good cocktail selection, too. Good for afterwork drinks. Can also get quite loud.

“Fine and fun burger joint, near V&A Waterfront”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2014

Hudson's on Somerset is a trendy and popular 'burger joint' very close to Big Blue Backpackers and the V&A Waterfront in Capetown. It has an extensive pub-style menu, with a large selection of burgers (all of them sounding great - the one I had, superb!), a good selection of wines and beers, and lots of other appetizing menu items.

The ambience is welcoming and comfortable, and the serving staff friendly and helpful. The portions are ample and the fare (at least the stuff that I ordered) was fresh and tasty. The prices were very reasonable as well, especially if one is travelling on a budget!

I would say Hudson's should be highly recommended to anyone staying in the Greenpoint area of Capetown.

“Burger Lunch @ Hudson's - Kloof Street, CPT”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014 via mobile

Enjoyed a scrumptious well prepared healthy vanilla thunder chicken burger. It was so YUM!
Atmosphere has a typical 'laid back' vibe and the service is general was great. When in the area, go for it.

Just a note to the managing staff- the restaurant verges on a bit dirty. Sweep the floors, wash the windows and wipe the tables more often. Don't let it subtract from your FANTASTIC food!
