This restaurant offers a very fun family experience. The food is good, but you attend this restaurant for the family friendly fun shows throughout dinner. You begin the evening with an interactive drum show, followed by a few courses of food, a lady comes around and offers face painting for anyone who wants it, this is followed by more food, then small performance of singing and dancing, followed by more food, more dance and more food. We counted 15 courses in total! Very fun evening, all ages enjoyed this restaurant.

The family voted this the best restaurant we visited in Cape Town. The children really enjoyed the drumming, singing and dancing. A varied set menu of dishes from several African countries (Botswana, Kenya, S.Africa were on the menu when we went) were presented. We had had none of them before and they were all very good. Service and ambience were good and even though we went mid week it was busy.

There is a daily drumming session that Children can participate in. We just missed this so it is worth checking the times when you book.

Very disappointed with visit. When we booked there was no explanation of the show timings so we arrived half way through second show. This should have been explained when we booked as we would have attended earlier. There are only three shows.

Fixed menu.
Shows very short.
Food was average at best and nothing to accommodate children.
Face painting is four tiny flowers on your face by disinterested member of staff.
Waitresses were very morose and had no fun about them. 'Could not be bothered attitude'
When the kitchen staff came out later they were far more entertaining.
As we were later they were clearing up around us.
There are far nicer places to go in Cape Town.

Our small group of 7 were treated to a fun night at Gold Restaurant. We started off with a 30 minute drumming session where we all got to keep up in time with a couple of drummers and then we had a hand washing ceremony. The array of dishes that were explained to us off the menu were delicious (the dips and soup were my favourite) and the exotic meats that were from all over the African continent. In between the eating and drinking we were treated to African dances that were done on each level of the multi storied building. I recommend this dining experience if you want something different on your Capetown adventure.

Very nice restaurant for tourists, because there are typical food and entertainment performance of dance and music. We loved everything and the price it was correct.
