Discover your African heartbeat!

Gold Restaurant is situated in a trendy area of Cape Town. This lively and diverse Pan-African restaurant promises a night of sumptuous wining and dining with live entertainment set against a glorious African backdrop of trees and tents in an inner city courtyard drenched in ancient history.

Dining at Gold Restaurant begins with the drumbeat of the djembe drum. An interactive drum circle offers you the opportunity to join in and learn how to play the djembe. In no time at all you will be drumming with the rest of Africa!

After drumming for a while, we lead you into ancient courtyards where we ceremoniously wash and soothe your hands before eating.

Our cuisine is authentically Cape Malay and African and is served by beautifully clad waitrons in African style baskets. As you dine you will be entertained by the live performances near your table.
Guests are welcomed to Gold by the Mali Puppets who sing and dance in time to the drum beats. We invite you to join in with the festivities and feel the rhythm of your African roots.

Interactive Drumming Experience
Gold hosts an interactive drum circle every evening for 40 minutes with master facilitator, Eddie. Each drummer is given their own djembe drum, and Eddie teaches you the different sounds and rhythms of the djembe.

After a few minutes even the most rhythmically challenged will soon find their African spirit and drumbeat as West African rhythms are heard vibrating through the ancient courtyards.
It is undoubtedly a stimulating start to a magical evening at Gold.

Cuisine at Gold Restaurant
Gold invites diners to sample cuisine from our Cape Malay kitchen, as well as some well loved traditional African inspired dishes. The entire menu is served at the table as a set tasting menu in sharing and individual portions.

Gold has a very proud association with Tamsin and Lannice Snyman who are our menu consultants and are responsible for all our recipes, research and staff training. It is a wonderful collaboration and we are privileged to have two of South Africa’s finest foodies as part of Gold. Our head chef, Emily, does justice to their beautiful food every day with her team of 15 ladies.
