We opted to spoil ourselves for our last night in Cape Town and we went dissapointed. We took part in the drumming session before dinner which was really fun and then were escorted to our table. The staff were super and made the evening delightful. The live music, singers and dancers who serenaded us whilst we fined were super talented... More

It was a very busy evening that a group of about 20 went to Gold. The service and the food was very good. The entertainment and the encouragement to participate made the evening very memorable. A great way to spend an evening.

The food, dancing, and service are stellar at Gold. I was able to dine on dishes from all over the African Continent - a place not to be missed

antastic ambience in this Cape Town restaurant we went to during our honey moon. You will get a chance to watch (and even participate to!) traditional dances and drumming. The service is very attentive and professional, as well as very polite. Food is very good but be prepared to a set menu (no choice unfortunately) which includes 14 courses, some... More

I must admit that I am not a big fan of meats other than those I am used to, so I will not... More

I was at this restaurant as part of an inclusion on a group tour. I feel this is a place set up completely for tourists and that locals are unlikely to dine here. Not something I usually go for. The dishes are brought out 4 or 5 at a time and you can have as much or as little as... More

A great dining experience, our group of 22, was quickly seated. The evening started with lessons on playing the djembe (drum). We were treated to traditional African dancing during our dinner. Our meal consisted of a variety of traditional African dishes.

More than just a meal. Loved the menu with a great selection. The entertainments, singing and dancing added so much more to a great evening. Will bring more friends next time.
