The food was from different countries in Africa. It is a fixed menu but you can order the same thing twice if you so desire which I did with the ostrich nab... More

The Gold in Cape Town is an acclaimed two stored restaurant gone local live show. I did visit the restaurant on a business trip from Germany accompanied by a group of around 60 people and the general consents was that it was touristic, but in a way done right and pleasant. Very cool authentic show accompanying the food served and... More

We took a night off from our group. With the recommendation of fellow traveler, we walked over to Gold from Protea located on Somerset. The atmosphere, food and entertainment were one of the highlights of our African trip. The price seems a bit on the high side but when you realize all that comes with your admission, its actually a... More

Came here without having any expectation as I had no idea where I was going. The music show is very good and you get to participate nonetheless at the end my hands were aching. The food was very good, giving you a glimpse of African cuisine and the portions very extremely generous. I highly recommend this place.

I went to Gold's my first night in Cape Town. So glad my group went there - please note that I have some picky people in my group. Great food, great service, great entertainment. It set the standard so high that every other place we went to paled in comparison. I highly recommend.

Writing the review has, already, been very difficult for me; and I'm just starting. When I have a positive reflection I want to make, I immediately think, "On the other hand..." I'll try not to vacillate too much. The format of, "Gold - Oppulent African Cusine" isn't, in my mind, compatible with "opulence". Patrons are seated at long tables in... More
