We often book Gold Restaurant for a first night’s dinner experience for our guests arriving in Cape Town.
It’s a perfect way to immerse yourself in the traditional African scene, enjoying food, learning about the music and of course, experiencing the local people of South Africa. It’s a great introduction to our culture and just a fun evening of entertainment.
When arriving at Gold, your senses are overwhelmed with the sights of African drums, art, beads, murals and much more! The space is massive and there are many floors lined with seating for guests joining the fun. The atmosphere is electrifying and exciting.
Following Mama B to your table, you can get involved in the drumming ‘lesson’ that takes place before the meal. Singing, Dancing and drumming starts immediately and before you know it, it’s a party! All the staff is dressed in amazing, traditional African attire and they encourage and inspire you to get involved in the performance. It’s so much fun!
Once the drumming experience has completed, you will have the rest of the night to enjoy the set menu which is expertly served at your table.
Our menu, which we thoroughly enjoyed, consisted of the following:
Starters: Tunisian Harissa Spiced Chicken Wings, Moroccan Zaalook
Mains: Namibian Lamb and Venison Sausage and Tomato Smoor, Zanzibar Pilau Rice, South African Cape Malay Samoosas, Cameroon Braised Butternut and Coconut
Dessert: Beetroot Cake served with a sweet dipping sauce and fruit Kebabs
We can wholeheartedly recommend the Gold experience and we felt it was a perfect way to celebrate a successful 2018 and thank our fantastic office team for all the hard work and dedication through the year. It also doubled up as Cindy’s birthday celebration!
Thank you, Gold! We will continue to recommend this experience to our guests!
