Our first south African experience and it was spot on! Nice people, great cocktail's good food and very nice owner! We had our aperitivo elsewhere and went in without a reservation but it was no problem, even on a Friday evening the place was booked but the cleared a table for us. We went for the small communial meat 7 tapas bread and dessert. Very low price very good food! We just saw it in the Cologne visitors guide and it was really great. They change their menu every x weeks so we'll going to have a nice experience the next time.

This little gem is definitely worth visiting,
Idea is simple; cool interior design, African food served in tapa's style, and friendly service for a correct price.
They have som great wines and even african beers to try out.

Very cool place which i would definitely visit again...

Awesome little restaurant! The food was amazing! I'd definitely order their communal meal so you can try different main courses. Nice wine menu. Very friendly and attentive staff! Will go again soon! :)

When in Cologne, you could of course enjoy the local cuisine. However, should you feel like something else, this is a lovely alternative. The value for money is excellent, as is the atmosphere of the restaurant with simple, but very effective decorations. The menu consists of 7 different dishes. You can choose between meals containing 3 or 4 of those dishes, or a communal meal, with all 7 dishes. The staff is friendly and are happy to explain a bit more about the dishes and the way things work in the restaurant. Also, there is a wide selection of cocktails to choose from. All in all, a lovely night is guaranteed!

Dinner here was nice and very affordable, four portions of the tapas menu (Brundi beans, Tanzanian fish, meat samosa and chicken in groundnut sauce) are more than enough for an average appetite. Good service too.
