The food was quite good, the setting was beautiful in an old brick warehouse, and the entertainment of live music, singing, and dancing very fun. It was a bit touristy, but everyone there loved it.

The unique South African evening starts with a really fun experience in an African drum class - Let lose and feel the rhythm! Dinner is a set meal with a vegetarian option. The spiced tomato soup and bread baked in individual pots were unusual. The samosa and main courses were average but the meal ended well with tasty crunchy Cape... More

ケープタウン旅行の最終日に訪れました。その土地の文化や踊りに興味があったので、どこかいいところはないかと探していたところ、このGold Restaurantを見つけました。店員さんは皆、南部アフリカの国々出身で、とてもフレンドリーです。ディナーメニューはコースからなり、その間に3種類の踊りで、楽しませてくれます。内装もデコレーションも美しく、素敵なひとときを過ごすことができました。ケープタウン滞在中に訪れたいレストランの一つだと思います。(結構混んでいたので、日程が決まっている場合予約をすることをおススメします!) We were looking for the place to see African dances and found this restaurant. As the name says, it was as gorgeous as "GOLD". Staff are all from Southern African countries and very friendly. Portion of dish was not big and good size, and all are nice. It might be recommended to book in advance to avoid dissapointmnt... More

We ate here with kids 8 and 11. We did the drumming before the dinner. Everyone really enjoyed the food and experience. While most of the clientele looked like tourists, I thought it was a very good choice for a family in cape town for a few nights. Very close to hotels at the waterfront. If you are one who... More

Food offering from various countries in Africa are not problem from my Asian taste. The place is very typical of ethnic African... More

Had a fantastic time at Gold. Started with a drumming class which was heaps of fun and quite a work out! We certainly earned our drinks, which kept flowing all night. The singing and dancing was amazing -the energy they have is mind blowing. Our waiter, Francis, was great - funny and entertaining, and the food was good. Overall it... More

Capetonians are a slightly jaded bunch who are so laid back they often overlook the excitement and sense of discovery that 1st time foreign and even local tourists enjoy when reaching this amazing city. As we know most 7 to 10 day itinerary include an overnight in Jhb - the game lodge then off to Cape Town, but not much... More

My international friends had a great time eating here. The atmosphere was wonderful and some of them even got up to dance with the entertainers. The set menu is lovely and let's you try a variety of African dishes that you normally wouldn't have anywhere else by choice. We had a wonderful time and hopefully will be back.

Thanks to the Hotel concierge because we would never have found this place. Colourful fun entertainers walking around. Ideal for groups. Set menu and great value and delicious. Bit of group participation in dancing around your table but nothing too intrusive and fun for all. Would recommend as a fun night out for tourists.
