Go try the winter special at Burger & Lobster in Cape Town | 9Lives
Reading Time: 3 min

Winter is the best time to explore the hot foodie spots in Cape Town, with a range of specials to lure locals out of their lairs. One of my favourite offers this season is running at Burger & Lobster, a vibey restaurant that opened on Heritage Square early last year.

We arrived around 7pm on a Friday evening and the space was already buzzing with activity. The vibe at Burger & Lobster is perfect for a fun night out. It is chic and trendy, spacious but cosy, and it can get packet without feeling overly crowded. The food is delicious, they have a great selection of cocktails, wine and beers, and their service is friendly and efficient.

Their prices are decent all year round, but currently you can get a delicious meal for a steal. Their winter special gives you a burger, half a lobster roll*, fries and a small salad for only R139.

Apart from this one, Burger & Lobster is frequently dishing out tempting new deals. Every last Thursday of the month they host a Ladies Night where you can get a B&L Burger or Lobster Roll and bottomless Graham Beck Brut for R299 pp. Or join them for their 2-4-1 happy hour special from 16:00 -19:00, Monday to Saturday, on selected cocktails, house wine and draft beers. Aside from these they’re often hosting parties, tequila nights, First Thursday throw-downs and more. Keep an eye on their Facebook page for details.

Aside from the great deals, it’s really worth visiting Burger & Lobster for their food and yummy cocktails. In my opinion theirs is one of the best burgers in Cape Town. It isn’t overly fancy or complicated – just a great, juicy patty with simple garnishes and a perfect bun. The lobster roll was equally delicious, with a sweet brioche bun and succulent meat – moreish, decadent and perfectly delicious. Throw in crispy truffle French fries and you’ll see why they’ve secured a place in my heart.

If you feel like splurging, you can also try their new Lobster Linguine. This is a recent addition to the menu, with a perfectly cooked whole lobster served on a classic tomato pasta.

I can highly recommend you check out Burger & Lobster for your next night out. It is an ideal spot to head for dinner and a couple of cocktails before hitting the bars and clubs around the corner in Loop and Long Street.

*West Coast Rock Lobster is on the SASSI Red List and not a sustainable seafood. According to Burger & Lobster they use South Coast Lobster, which is not on the SASSI red list. It is, however, always good to ask about the source of your seafood to ensure you’re supporting sustainable fisheries.


I am a lifestyle blogger from Cape Town trying to find the best ways to spend my time, take care of my body and express myself. I am slightly obsessed with fragrances, sneakers, Jamie Oliver and Masterchef Australia. Oh, and I probably drink way too much wine.
