We arrived jet lagged and tired for my surprise Birthday dinner. Went up to learn African drumming from "Easy" our instructor for about 45 minutes...Awesome! Then went down to the restaurant and curio shop. Dinner consisted of these amazing local tapas like tastes of Africa that were loaded with flavor while beautifully presented. As we ate we were entertained with... More

We went with friends of ours who had been last year. They had described the evening as very good but complained that they had not been able to see much of the show so we had asked for a better table this time. We got a good table and a complimentary glass of champagne for a return visit. We had... More

Very friendly staff who bend over backwards to ensure you have a great evening. And African dancing and music going on all through the evening Very authentic They even paint... More

We were invited by our travel agency for the last evening of our tour. The show starts around 6:30 pm with a "drum lesson". The menu has 14 small courses which are rather tapas portions. The food is okay but nothing extravagant. Amazingly, a group of 10 to 12 Arab women, all with Niqab, was there, taking pictures of the... More

If you don't go, you'll never know what you missed- once you do, it'll undoubtedly be unforgettable. We had the best night out in South Africa at this place, beautiful environment, kind staff, loads of fun and so much food (the type of food we've been seeking i.e Springbok) deserts with gold flakes - it was just beautiful, delicious, and...

I visited here on the last night of my stay in Cape Town. The welcome was warm and inviting. The building is incredible....various different levels, absolutely huge, and every table was occupied. The food comes out gradually...the 14 course menu is amazing. So many flavours from all over Africa. Entertainment seemed to happen every 20 minutes or so, authentic dances... More
