Went to Gold as part of a conference dinner and the partly the disappointment was due to the conference organisers. The entertainment was stunning and the wait staff went the extra mile. However the food was all about sampling tiny portions from all over Africa---would have been very happy to have to an a la carte to have a proper... More

Music was good, food was excellent, performances and servicing were clear distinctions. Tucked away from the hustle of water front, the facility is huge but not imposing. Recommended for an evening out.

Eight of us had a great time at Gold.....sampling traditional food, meeting our attentive servers, and, of course, the entertainment. An interactive fun evening that shouldn't be missed. Leave your inhibitions at home and join the fun. Great for families as well...the kids would enjoy the fun.

The drumming lesson before the meal was a hoot. We were a group of 24 and had a grand time. The food was local and very interesting and the serving staff explained it well. It came in portions for four and it came in phases. All prepared and presented differently on interesting plates and bowls. The songs and dances were... More

A delicious pre-set 14 course tasting menu, accompanied by absolutely fantastic entertainment. Reasonably priced and one of the highlights of our stay in Capetown.

Such fun for a tourist. Not all "Tourist" attractions are bad. This was a world of fun. Loved the idea of "fellowship"

A little touristic, yes, but I guess that's the point. If you can get over this feeling, get ready for very good African food and some energetic demonstrations of singing and dancing.

A meal at Gold is a brilliant initiation into African cuisine. When I visited the restaurant in Capetown, it was the very first time I was eating any African food and I have to say I completely enjoyed my self. They have an adorable shop selling African trinkets which is a great way to start or end your time at... More
