“Hidden Treasure but too many cats around”
Reviewed 4 February 2014

Disliked the cats that swarmed the restaraunt but the food was okay!! There was music on some nights played by some amateurs seeking to hit the big time.

“pleasant dining near acropole”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

if you are staying at acropole hotel, a five minutes walk (ask the hotel for direction) will take you to this simpl but pleasant restourant. The food is good although not memorable, and if you are a newcomer to Sudan ask for the local specialities not feautured in the menu. The pizza is decent even for Italian standards ;-) Best thing of all: dining al fresco in the shady yard (if you don't mind the odd rat, but this is Khartoum!)

“Great Atmosphere”
Reviewed 9 November 2013

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.

“Wish it would change”
Reviewed 21 January 2013

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.

“Good vibes and decent service.”
Reviewed 20 December 2012

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.
