Papa Costas is situated in a rather run down building in old Khartoum, but what a delightful place. The restaurant is filled with art (for sale) which adds to the general ambiance. Paintings on the walls look as if they were done by the first inhabitants and had us clicking away with our cameras. The outside seating amongst plants are inviting (I guess in summer this area might be a bit hot). Service was good, but it was a bit of a struggle to get my bill. The grill filled the air with a mouth watering aroma, but was a bit dry once served. The salad served with the grills was skimpy. Papa Costas specializes in pizza and I would suggest you stick to that. None in our party was very impressed with any of the grills served, but the pizzas were received very well.

I truly enjoy the location and the history behind this place however i feel quite sad that the service is terrible, the food and quality is not good at all...the food is always served cold and it takes very long time in preparation and the prices are ridiculous in comparison with other restaurants in town.

Heard about the live music and went on Thursday night. Very welcoming staff. Good munch, decent prices, great service. The best thing is the ambience. European type villa setting with a courtyard. Not the best quality Chairs, tables, cutlery, etc. but what you see is what you get and the overall vibe and entertainment leaves you well satisfied.

You don't go there for the food (which is fine) or the speed of the service, you go there because it is a unique place in Sudan; a place to hang out, see art, listen to music and for khawajas and Sudanese to mingle. Thursday nights (somewhat later than the advertised 8pm) are when you get live music. Closed during Ramadan.
