These idiots burned my ribs. I cut up half the rack and sent it back when I discovered it was burned. They took it back but only returned half the portion. When I asked about the rest of my ribs, the manager with the bad accent insisted that I only sent back half a portion. In short accused me of lying about what I sent back. Never had such bad treatment in a restaurant. Shame on you Gibsons. A high profile place like yours shouldn't try to rip me off for half a rack of ribs. If your staff were hungry all they had to do was ask and I would have bought them KFC. They didn't have to take my other rack of ribs and accuse me of eating it. It was burned for god sake!!!!! Get your manager to fix his attitude and his bad accent. I won't be back. I'll go to Hudson's instead.

My family and I came across this little gem at the waterfront a few months ago and have been about 6 times now and have never been disappointed. We love our burgers and have tried all the competition and then some but Gibsons wins hands down for burgers and ribs. Their burgers are massive, juicy and packed with freshness and flavour while costing the same as any other burger joint…. They are the only place we know of where the food looks and tastes like the picture in the advertising. Highly recommended YUM YUM YUM!! Oh and service is always top notch.

Dirty cutlery! Tables for two too wide felt like i was sitting too far away from my wife. We ended up turning the table sideways to sit next to each other, then the couple sitting next to us said they have been wanting to do the same thing since they sat down! Strawberry milkshake tasted like Nesquik. They served my wife a RAW chicken burger!!! Both chicken and beef burgers tasted the same i think from grill not being cleaned often enough. Beef burger rolls too huge. Everything on the plate kept sliding to middle of the plate due to its oval rounded shape, especially mini french fries container. Overall disappointed. Burger restaurants are a plenty in Cape Town. No idea how they expect to survive against their competition with that attitude and service. They should be better than the rest since they are part of Balducci which is awesome every time. Bums on seats will determine their future. Im not sure that even their positioning at the Waterfront will sustain them with that kind of experience for locals or tourists.

Super friendly & efficient service, pork ribs excellent and burger's delicious! Different venue with a view would definitely be a BIG drawcard.

Brilliant burgers! Eaten there a few times. Their sweet potato chips are really great. If you go you have to try the onion blossom. Great if you have kids with you.

The food was great and the prices were very reasonable. I liked the laid back atmosphere.
