In CT for an OB rugby tournament, I tried all week to get to Mitchellís. Finally arrived on Saturday mid-day with some of my mates and had the craft brew sampler and a pint of the Scottish Ale. Lovely atmosphere, good and fairly knowledgeable staff, food not sampled. Prices were good, although the swag was dear and sized for small tourists. Youíll need to go up 1-2 sizes, be forewarned. Not a world-class pub by any means, but my favorite of the half-dozen I experienced in the Cape.

Proper pub feel to the place, reasonable selection of beers, good food. Wide range of Mitchellís beers and some knowledgeable staff happy to give tasters.

Great location on the Waterfront, nice atmosphere, a nice selection of beers compared to other places in SA, but not that great. And the only really decent beer they had, Duvel, was sold out after the two nights we visited...

Although itís in tourist central, the large patio and interior makes it a good afternoon watering hole. Locals do come here, too, of course. The beers are hit or miss. The 90 shilling and the Stout are my faves. Itís a bit more expensive than other places in the Cape or in SA in general, but still reasonable especially given the location. All in all, though, I prefer De Anker. It is also on the Waterfront. They have Orval and other yummies and they have a killer view, whereas Mitchellís does not.

A great location at the Waterfront. A beautiful and rustic place. Nice service, Ok food and a ok selection of beer. The original owners are back since a couple of years. They improve their business over time

Very touristy location, but a great pub overall - my favorite in CT. Great atmosphere, great service and decent selection. Donít count on having an erudite craft brew chat with staff, but they are attentive and good value.The house beers are serviceable and certainly better than any of the junk lagers youíll find nearly everywhere.

Mitchellís is located at the V&A Waterfront, the main tourist location in CT. It has a nice pub/bar atmosphere inside with a small patio outside. The selection of beers was not that great, and I didnít try any of the food. Itís one of the better places in CT, but thatís not saying alot. Itís worth a stop if youíre in the V&A area.

Visited early April 2009.
Nice layout. The brew equipment has apparently been removed and beer is no longer brewed on site.
Beers were good if not on the lighter side.
The Scottish Ale was very good. Nice malt character with low hop profile and very pleasant alcohol strength.
In all, the beers were very clean and well priced.

Been living in the Western Cape for 3 months now and staying for 2 more. I hit up Mitchellís every other Tuesday to drink and watch some hillarious Karaoke. The ambieance is ok, its designed to be a traditional Scottish Ale house. The crowd is either silly karaoke people or soccer fans - all pretty significantly drunk. Not really a beer geek place. Service is fine, selection is weak, food is pretty standard quality bar food, but they have a nice number of options on the menu. The value is average - beers are 18.50 Rand, just shy of 2 US dollars. This is good value for the US, but not great value for here. Overall: if you are in Cape Town you should visit Mitchellís, mostly because there aren;t any other real beer spots.
