Nice food

The food is tasty and i feel healthy as well. There are plenty of options for vegetarians as well. But it is little bit crowded because of more furniture in less space.

My husband and I recently moved to Stuttgart and some friends of ours introduced us to this restaurant. I was pleasantly surprised since I am not very adventurous when it comes to food... The fried shrimp appetizer is to die for and whenever we bring our visiting family and friends, someone always gets the Exotic Meat platter and we all... More

Love going here - the ambience, food, and service are all great. On busy nights, the food can be a bit slow to come out of the kitchen, but that's only to be expected. In particular, the fish dishes here are really delicious, something of a rarity in the Stuttgart area. The portions are very large, so make sure you... More

After having previously eaten lambs eyes, pigeon, llama, and see urchin, I did not find the cuisine at Africa to be all that exotic. However, it is a great place to bring your more timid friends so they can at least stick their toe into the wide world of non-traditional foods. I recommend having them start with ostrich and crocodile.... More

I didn't make a reservation because I wasn't sure about our plans. it was a very busy evening 3 days before Christmas and the hosts didn't have a table for us, but he did make us very comfortable and did his best, and after a wait, he got us in- even a couple complimentary beers. This place was a lot... More

First thing you need to know: make a reservation two weeks before your visit just to be sure to get a table in the traditional area of the restaurant. There is sand and they have lower tables with pillows on the sand to sit. The food is amazing!! Don't miss to try the African coffee.

A restaurant not in the middle of everything but still close to Staatsgallerie. The food. To start with I guess that I´m quite picky about what I eat as a guest and I don´t like to pay much for nothing, small portions. The food was genuinely made with fresh ingredients and it tasted deliciously and the size of the portions... More

We normally go to Africa for every birthday of my mom and every time so far we loved it. The atmosphere and food are both amazing. I remember at first I didn‘t want to go there because it is not your everyday food, but definitely changed my mind now. It was so worth going because it is just so different... More
