Great place to experience African cuisine in a stylish environment. The staff are friendly, efficient & well informed. The food is delicious with a good variety. The live entertainment is also very good. All in all, a great experience.

This eleven course meal representing different cultures on the continent should not be missed. It was just my wife and I, but the amount of food could have fed four easily. So good and flavorful. And then the drummers and dancers made it the best cultural experience we had during out visit in CPT.

We dined at Gold one evening and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal! The fixed tasting menu has a wide variety of food and it was nice to try food from all over Africa. The African dancing and entertainment was also added to the atmosphere! Would definitely recommend a visit!

Glad a fellow traveler told us not to miss this. Not just truly excellent African food but an interactive experience of arriving early to participate in drumming. We were led by a truly charismatic drum leader who kept us hopping and laughing both. Throughout dinner at 3 levels, groups would rotate and perform African song and dance. 14 course -... More

A true African experience. The entertainment is priceless! Great singers and the dancing compliment the performance. The guests become part of the performance with dancing and complimentary traditional face painting. The food courses are amazing. Highly recommended for a truly traditional yet fun and entertaining experience.

Friends invited me to meet them at Gold and I'm so happy they did! We started with a group djembe lesson which was a blast. Over the evening our eating - a wide variety of dishes from all over the African continent - was pleasantly interrupted by singing and dancing right next to our tables. Excellent food. Fun, quality entertainment.... More

We booked Gold to compensate the kids for indulging the adults on a tour of the wine lands earlier that day. It is regarded as an authentic African experience and it did not disappoint. I cannot vouch for its authenticity but it certainly felt real. We had booked for a drumming lesson session at 6.30 and this was enjoyed by... More

We went to Gold Restaurant on our first night in Cape Town and it was such a treat. We saw the menu and thought we were going to pick from the many different items but we were pleasantly surprised that the dining experience included about 10-12 African dishes from across the country. The food was a great tasting experience of... More
