The variety is truly astonishing and I found it next to impossible to choose. Think Cinnamon Doughnut; Cheesecake; Caramel Fudge; Salted Caramel; Vanilla Chocolate Honey; Banana & Custard; Chocolate & Salty Pretzel; Apple Pie & Cream; Rose Water & Marshmallow; Orange Blossom & Pansies; Smarties; Bar One; Lindt… See, I told you, impossible to choose. They’re as pretty to look at as they are good to drink (eat?) because at Gibson’s they take the time to make their food look just as good as the images on the picture-filled menu.
If red meat is not your thing, there are chicken, pork and vegetarian burger options. And if burgers period are not your thing, they still have you covered because the extensive menu features loads of other options. They are licensed, so a beer, cider or wine can be enjoyed too. Décor wise think classy, cool, urban burger joint. It’s the kind of place where mommies don’t need to worry about kiddie spills, yet it’s slick enough for a fun date. There are loads of restaurants at the Waterfront, but the ones with a prime view of Table Mountain is where real estate heaven lies. Gibson’s has that. I left wondering why I’d never been before. I will most certainly be back – maybe not to taste all 200 shakes, but certainly to give it a good old college try.
