Very practical place for lunch, good price, tasty food. You can easily take out your meal. I didn't have to worry about lunch when I had meetings at OCHA. Nice and friendly restaurant staff as well.

Decent atmosphere and location on the Nile. There's a sunken barge as you enter. The thatched roof for the bar was re-done in 2015. Would suggest trying the odd pizza topping combinations.

The location is hard to say anything bad about, right as the Nile witch sets it up for some amazing views. The food that I had was really good! I had the steak with peppar sauce, mashed potato, and it was proper home made mash, with vegetables. And I really enjoyed it I have to say, and as we where... More

The menu is still the same for more than a year. The Chef's food is horrible and returning my food back the 3rd time I gave up and will not support them again. I had bones in my food, it is like microwave lunch or supper!! The bar lady is not capable of her job, she shouts at everybody in... More

Visited twice and found the food decent both times - it tends towards European tastes eg Sunday Roast, TexMex. The location right above the White Nile is hard to beat. Service helpful and pretty quick. The bar is a mess though. No fresh juice, packaged juice sold in 1 litre cartons only (?!) and very limited range of beer.

The pizzas are great, one of the best in Juba; and their meals are also good, even with the limited menu. The evening atmosphere is also quite good, and the Nile view is great. Generally more on the pricey side, but it is value for money.

I liked the site, the view of the NIle river and its green opposite riverbank, the huge Mango trees to hangout, the cold beer. Food was okay, but not very diverse - Pizza, Bar snacks, Mongolian theme night (why Mongolian I could not figure out?), an overpriced menu of fish or meet. I ordered a Strudel, which did not arrive... More

I ate at Afex twice during my visit to Juba, the food and atmosphere was very good both times. I especially like the pizza, it was almost like eating New York style pizza. Quite enjoyable.
