Was recommended by a couple of Foodie friends, so of course, we had to check it out. The food, claimed to be African(South), is actually meat based. We tried several dishes and were very impressed. The meat was cooked to perfection. The several wine choices we made, were very good as well, and even the desert was a treat. Service was very good, and we definitely felt at home. One remark though - we really enjoyed the place, and although the seats are reserved for a specific amount of time, we overstayed, and the staff became quite impatient, until we were moved and eventually forced us out.

We were there during week days, the place was not full, the place is nicely decorated and atmosphere is great. These days they are having coupon promotion so it may be crowded.
The service is very efficient. as for the food, they are using in all meals a kind of slugger which makes all dished to taste as dessert !!! I never been in restaurants in Africa therefore I am wondering if that should be the African cuisine taste. Prices are relatively high.A bit disappointing

Went on a coupon for tasters menu for two - 5 starters, two main dishes and one desert. All the starters were delicious. Two main dishes were great also, one was a skewer with different meats and the second was meat in a poyke cooked to perfection. Desert was so-so, but we were full. Service was excellent and the ambiance in the restaurant is great too. Their choice of background music was just to my liking. I'd definitely go back.

I've been to Pokye during the weekend - Saturday noon. The place was not very busy which was good for our purposes.
We had a pre-purchased coupons for a "chef's meal" that includes tasting all sorts of cuisines from a fixed menu.
The food was OK in compare to the coupon price - I would not go there for a FULL price.
Very interesting way of cooking - there's always a scent of natural burn/fire in the food which was great for the adults - kids didn't like that much.
I'd expect a bit larger portions - although it's a "tasting" thing ; you should at least not finish lunch being partially hungry...

The restaurant's idea is African food, mainly South-African, with some very nice dishes. The name of the restaurant, "Poyke", means a heavy pot, and some of their best dishes are cooked and served in such pots, giving an authentic touch to a very nice cuisine.
Service was okay, but there was nowhere to park near the restaurant.
