African Restaurant

“This is one of the best kept secret restaurants in Cape Town. With its subtle entrance and grand lounge themed space, this place oozes quality and class. The food is as fantastic as the decor and seating options and it comes with a bar and library too so you can enjoy a drink while you wait for your table. They also have live jazz on occasion. But be sure to book. You won't regret it.”
