So what if it is sounds/seems "touristy". I AM A TOURIST! Although I may not know what "good" African food should taste like, I know I absolutely enjoyed every morsel on every plate. I wish I had a bigger stomach so I could have eaten everything that was offered. Fixed menu (making it easy for the uninitiated to order) and... More

Went to Gold on the recommendation of our hotel, and absolutely loved it. Great food, atmosphere and service, but the music and singing really made it so special and entertaining. If you're in Cape Town, make time to visit!

Quite entertaining evening which started with a tour through the Gold Museum whereafter we had a bongo drum lesson. Then we were taken to our table - the service was excellent and the food was pretty good. I even had some Kaapse Vonkel with a gold leaf which was a pretty unique experience. The entertainment inbetween courses was quite interesting... More

An unusual but entertaining restaurant where the food is only part of the experience. A large place located over several levels. We started with a 30 minute drumming lesson which was great fun. The food was a multiple dish set menu that highlighted different areas of Africa and was excellent. There is also entertainment amongst the tables during the meal.... More

We were sent here by the Cape Grace and it was a very nice experience. There is a set menu (someone stated there were 14 courses - not sure, it ALL went so quickly) and there are many flavors and textures. The music was loud and the dancing was interesting. You will not get bored or wish they would move... More

My wife and I, we had a wonderful evening, and we left with all our senses absolutely sated. The food was very tasty and varied, and I enjoyed the fact that there were so many dishes to share with everyone. The venue and decor are so beautiful, it's like being in an African Art gallery. I also loved the entertainment... More

What an amazing restaurant with great food and a true African experience. You actually get to know your waiter who was obviously handpicked by management and trained not only as waiters but as entertainers and great conversationist as well. We will be back.

We had an excellent evening at the Gold with a large group of delegates to a Conference. The food was well and attractively served and very tasty. The music, setting and ambience with the live performers was really good and the ladies all looked so beautiful with their faces painted.

If you are looking to tick-off African food during a short trip to Cape Town, Gold Restaurant is the place to go. Boasting pan-African feast, there's about 8-10 courses! You can "top up" on any of the dishes, the food is fantastic spiced and beautifully presented. You can go early and book for a "Drumming Lesson" - fantastic with family... More

Totally new atmosphere with good African food taste. We enjoyed the show and the way they service the menu If you don't like to try and taste any meal then this restaurant is not for you.
