Africa Café

Africa Café Review

Touristy as it may be, this friendly restaurant in a historic 18th-century former home is perhaps the only one coasting boasting city views and an array of African cuisine. The theme here is a communal feast, with dishes originating from Ethiopia to Zambia, and Kenya to Angola. There are no starters or entrées, but rather a tasty series of patties, puffs, and pastries, along with dishes like an East African mchicha wa nazi (spinach cooked in a peanut sauce), and mwana wa nkosa (Karoo lamb stew). Vegetarian dishes are plentiful, including the Ethiopian aib (curd cheese with herbs). The cost of this colorful prix-fixe abundance (including dessert) is R245 per person. Wines from Cape estates are available, or you can ask for umqomboti beer, brewed from sorghum or millet.
