Experience an authentic 14-course African dinner and show at Gold Restaurant. Guests are treated to three unique performances during the course of an evening, beginning with a talented praise singer who welcomes diners. This opening is followed by a theatre extravaganza including singers, dancers, puppets and musicians accompanied by vibrant music and lots of energy. As guests enjoy the extravagant courses, including local Cape Malay dishes like bobotie and those from afar, like the Ghanaian groundnut chicken stew, the entertainment only escalates. Showcasing the dancing and celebratory performances of African royalty, the evening culminates with an explosive scattering of 24-carat gold dust.
Since 2007, Gold Restaurant has been serving authentic Cape Malay cuisine and African dishes that showcase the unique food diversity on the continent. Honouring this past, Gold Restaurant’s location also has a place in history. Situated in the bustling Green Point neighbourhood, the area was initially used by the Dutch as a cattle grazing station.

Advice for visitors
Come to Gold Restaurant ready for a feast! With a menu of 14-courses, there is a lot to taste and experience. As an authentic restaurant, it’s natural that some of the food will be new to guests. Gold recommends diners give everything a taste. Although food is a major part of the experience, it is secondary to the atmosphere and entertainment. Get involved in the show by learning how to play the djembe (an African drum) during the open session that’s held at the start of the evening. Before you know it, you’ll be drumming along with the band!
