    Seemed busier than what they could handle. 30% of menu items were unavailable. Drinks took 20+ minutes. Chicken tagine was cold and raw, couldn't eat it. Disappointing experience.

    My booking, done over a week ago, should have been proactively managed by contacting me and moving us from the roof deck. It would have been very uncomfortable and almost impossible to eat a meal on the rooftop with the game wings lay night. After not giving up and 3 conversations with different people, we were moved inside. Then I ordered mussels. About 10 mins later our waiter came and told me no mussels. I asked about fish, he went and asked, no fish. What felt like 30 mins later and close to serving our meals, the waiter came and said there was no mashed potato for the 2 people in our party who had ordered steak. No mashed potato?!? That felt like bad planning. It feels as if the restaurant has expanded but hasn't resourced for a larger scale, service was slow. Rick's Cafe was always one of my favourite restaurants. Having recently returned to Cape Town after living in Jhb for the past 8 years, I was hoping for the same experience as before, but I was sadly disappointed. The menu also seemed to be smaller or not as large a selecting, but I could be wrong in that one. Really very sad as the ambience, decor and setting at Rick's is absolutely awesome!
