After booking into the Protea Cape Castle we asked Samuel who was managing our booking in ...where would he recommend us to eat this evening?....he advised either Gold or Beluga restaurants .. he would ring ahead and try to book us a table as they do get very busy. Within an hour we were all booked in... We walked from... More

This meal will be remembered by my family forever. The food was authentic and fresh. The food wasn't the memorable part of the visit. It was the African dancing, drums, wines, and festivity. If you have only a few nights in Cape Town this might be a good choice for the cultural experience. There are better restaurants for the food... More

At first I wasn't sure if it was worth for me to try it due to the fact that I am vegetarian and the price is not cheap. I AM SO HAPPY THAT I DID. The food was amazing! A lot of different kind of meat, but also lots of vegetables! Everything is delicious, including the weird looking dessert (miam... More

The Gold restaurant in cape town South Africa Africa was fantastic. The decor and food are straight from Africa. The entertainment is exceptional with Tableside dancing and singing. The manager Mamma Bee stops at most tables to make sure everything is satisfactory.

We loved the Gold Restaurant. It is huge! The live entertainment was great! Not too touristy, the food was amazing, I literally rolled home. The set menu is great and you can order as much food as you like. The service was nice but (that's why only 4 points) after our desert the service member just gave us the bill,... More

We had dinner here, and had our face painted at the beginning. It was an interesting gimmick, and we loved it. The menu was fixed, and the food came out orderly. The food was based on traditional African cuisines in the continent but was adapted with modern tastes (fusion). The food portions were good, we were allowed to ask for... More

This is a nice place to dine. Entertainment was great and the band that played thereafter ( sylvster night) quite acceptable. The interior is georgeous, loft-style ! The food is OK, but not more. What could be a culinary voyage trough Africa is mediocre at the best. The only outstanding dish were the " Egyptian Almond Cigars" As for the... More

I had booked this restaurant for dinner, but they informed me that they are doing a drumming show before dinner so we came for the show. It was good entertainment and a different way to start a dinner. The food is a set menu with a different variety of food from all Africa. It's very nice to taste all the... More
