We found ourselves passing through Mthatha and discovered this amazing eatery in the heart of the hustle and bustle of the city. Such a trendy spot with a great menu. We just grabbed a lunch but we wished we could stay for the evening cocktails!...Definitely recommend this spot. They also have a boutique guest house attached which we would stay at if we come this way again.More

I wanted to kiss the chef. The food was mouthwatering, I ordered the ribs and my friend the chicken breast fillet and I would highly recommend them both! Oh and I cannot forget about the gin jars!! The atmosphere was calming and relaxing and the...staff incredibly welcoming, can wait to go back!More

The owner sometimes kicks you out if you are black and claims they are full She also makes black people park at the back and white clients can park in the front. Great food but for experience☹️

Cosy atmosphere. Safe surroundings. Good menu. This restaurant has a consistently good offering that is worth returning to. Especially good are the steaks.

I just wanted to say thank you to the hostess who welcomed me to the restaurant even though I had not made a booking. As a solo traveler, not familiar to the area, I really appreciated the warm welcome as well as the attentive service...received. My order was basic but I must commend your kitchen staff for preparing a very tasty chicken schnitzel and the best mashed potatoes I’ve had in a long while. Should I ever visit Mthatha again in future, or know of colleagues or friends travelling through the area I will certainly recommend Ebony as an establishment worth visiting. Well done and thank you 😁More
