Two of us had lunch here. The food was quite good. I had one of the best chicken dishes I've ever had; my friend had some of the best falafel I ever tasted. The African tea was excellent. Service? Not so hot. Our server was fairly disinterested. Toward the end of our meal, I saw her go to the back... More

It's not that easy to find a great restaurant that serves you african food. But this restaurant is something else :) it combines african elements with austrian elements in a perfect way. The lunch menu is very cheap and perfect for people in their lunchbreak as they make sure you get your meal fast. Also the desert is a dream... More

A bit crazy in the decor...the walls are painted bright pink, and there's afros and leopard print galore! The food was actually really yummy! Our entire group really enjoyed our meal there!

We weren't really sure what to expect when a friend recommended this restaurant. But we were pleasantly surprised. Food was good and atmosphere was funky and fun. Interesting and slightly addictive pineapple mayo (?).

My husband and i shared ostrich skewers as a starter and a large salad with chicken, olives,corn and sun-dried tomatoes and spare ribs with peanut purée and two sauces (to die for). The coffee my husband had was heavenly and my chai, which came with a 4 minute timer to allow me to steep it properly, was a spicy silky... More

The ambience was fun and funky, but the food was just so-so. It was a nice break from 'classical' Austrian coffee houses. I'd go again, but not right away.

Good food, nice atmosphere with all of the tables occupied. We went for dinner, huge helpings that were delicious. They sell great coffee to take away too, we bought the coffee beans home as a reminder of the trip.

Given it's recommendation in various travel guides, we have stopped in the Afro Café during our brief visit to Salzburg, on the occasion of a journey accross the country. Excellent location, nice food and creative choice of menue, as well as an interesting atmosphere in the restaurant. Service unfriendly and not very patient with children. When the kids were leaving... More
