We arrived slightly before the formal dinner starting time and were welcomed with open arms. We were informed that we would be having everything on the menu and therefore we had to make no food decisions. We focused on drinks. The wine was fantastic and the special drinks superb. I had the absolute best chicken I have had all year. Each dish was made special by its place of origin. The flavors kept coming. We were served by incredible staff. They made the experience memorable. I look forward to going back.

Shortly after it first opened, in 1998 we brought a group of 68 democracy activists from 10 nations on a week-long tour of the new South Africa. Our dinner at the Africa Cafe was a treat for all. So, when we recently brought a delegation of 60 social justice activists to South Africa to engage with people of all walks of life working on development and reconstruction, we knew Africa Cafe had to be on our itinerary. How right we were! The amazing 15-course meal featuring delicious Pan-African favorites was mouth watering. The service impeccable and even a musical performance! You don't have to be an activist to enjoy this fantastic restaurant and its special boutique shop featuring artwork of South Africa. If in Cape Town, it's a must!

If you look for unique experience, go to Africa Cafe. They serve you 15 different dishes. Better go there really hungry because to eat everything is almost impossible. The food was really great. During the evening the staff was giving the performance. It's a really great place and I would definitely recommend it. Also remember to make a reservation!
