Wow, what an experience. Here you get a truly varied menu and experience some tribal dancers and music. Be prepared to taste some wonderful traditional foods and be entertained. What an experience and our first time in Cape Town.

Wonderful food. Set menu so you can try food from different regions of South Africa. All delicious. The entertainment is fantastic. Got there early and tried playing the drums. So much fun. A must if you are visiting Capetown... Gives you a great African experience.

Gold was recommended by a friend, so we decided to go during our trip to Cape Town. The 16 set menu across Africa was very delicious and the different dishes complement the other dishes perfectly. The waitress was very friendly and announced every dish. The show (3 times) was entertaining, also including guests in the dancing. In the end the... More

For my wife and I - not a must in Cape Town - you can eat a lot better food and more authentic dishes and for better value relatively to other restaurants in the area. However, if you want some table side nicely put together entertainment and a flavour of 14 dishes from all over the African continent then this... More

We visited Gold based on the recommendation from our tour guide at the wineries. We were not disappointed. You definitely want to make reservations if you intend to visit. We made our reservations a day prior and were able to get in. However, even though it is a very large restaurant, in a converted warehouse, it was full the night... More

We were lucky enough to end up at Gold on the night of their birthday celebration and it was incredible! We had amazing food (they even altered it for my vegetarian diet), and we had a blast dancing, singing, and eating the amazing food. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough (and have already sent 4 other people there for their... More

Started the evening with the drumming which was a great experience and would recommend.(This is optional). The waitress was very professional and explained what to expect and the dishes that were served. It's a fixed menu with amazing tastes from all over Africa. There was also African singing and dancing during the dinner which was very entertaining. It was busy... More
