Top African restaurants in Cape Town

African food’s got game.

Last Updated: 19 December 2016

South African food is often described as 'rainbow' cuisine, influenced by Dutch, English, Cape Malay and Indian settlers. Cape Town's restaurants are abundant with traditional bobotie, milk tart, spicy sosaties, curries, pap, game and boerewors. But it's not just about eating the food. Music, dancing, culture and unique South African hospitality are sure to make your dining experience memorable.

Dine With Khayelitsha
This setting will give you an authentic dining experience complemented by deep conversations and a serving of true African cuisine. The township dinners are held at up to eight various homes, to give you a true Mzansi experience. The space hosts up to 11 guests at a cost of R250p/p for general dinners and R350p/p for private dinners. The three-course meals are set around topical conversations and practical solutions to problems. After dinner, guests head off to a local lounge, where entertainment by a variety of local artists is the main for the night.
