We went to Gracia Afrika on a weeknight with a group of 8 women to celebrate a birthday. While I reserved online, no one confirmed my reservation until after I called 4 days later to check. The lady who runs the restaurant, while exceedingly gracious and pleasant, speaks very limited English, so have someone with you who speaks French. From outside, the place is very unassuming, and gives no hint of what lies within. The room is small, but cosy and nicely decorated, with music playing in the background.The menu is not necessarily that on the website. It is rather limited and is written on a chalkboard. There were no appetizers or desserts, only main courses offered, which were cooked to order and took a long time to prepare. That being said, the odors that wafted from the kitchen only heightened our appetites. When it arrived, the food was absolutely delicious, and very generous in portions. Each plate comes with the main course, salad, a large portion of rice and fried plaintains. It is a BYOB restaurant, and you are encouraged to bring wine. We tried almost everything on the menu, and there was not one complaint from anyone (a miracle for this group). I would be happy to recommend this restaurant to anyone wishing to try a new cuisine.
