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

I visited Africa on a business trip with a couple of colleagues and it was a great change to the normal hotel or steak house when on business travel. Great atmosphere and good food very well priced. Really worth a visit whether on business or personally

Visited on a Saturday evening with a friend and was amazed by the service! Took the S Bahn to Staatsgalerie and walked from there, was quite hard to find as it's in the most random of locations but definitely worth it! It's quite a small restaurant with a really homely atmosphere. Definitely book in advance though as it was so... More

It was our third night in Stuttgart and we would have happily eaten local cuisine again but we are very glad that we walked up the hill to Africa. They were very friendly from the start on a night when they we booked solid. They squeezed us and our newborn in and were very friendly and willing to speak English.... More

I have never felt the need to comment on a restaurant right away. The "ambiente" at this restaurant was incredible. Once you walk in, you feel warm, cozy, relaxed and welcome. The food is fresh and delicious for an incredible price. Too bad I discovered this place on my last day in Frankfurt ... I would've been there every day.... More
