Restaurants in Africa + Middle East

Restaurants in Africa have something for everyone. Every country has a different flavor that travelers will want to experience. Africa restaurants are as diverse as the continent.

For traditional Moroccan fare, try Chez Chegrouni. Chez Chegrouni’s menu features an array of soups, salads, grilled meats, couscous and tagines. All dishes are reasonably priced.

One of the best Africa restaurants is the Djemma El-Fna food stalls. Here, you can osmotically experience the culinary adventures of Andrew Zimmern. Watch donkeys descend in the North African sunset as you experience the fresh grilled delicacies of the chefs. If you are a true foodie, you will want to try the Marrakesh specialties like the snail soup and sheep’s brain.

For some fairy tale magic while you dine, eat at Abou El Sid. This establishment is decorated in Arabian Nights regalia. Enjoy regional cuisine while under the mystic stars. The national dish, molokheya, a rabbit or chicken stew with garlic and onions is highly recommended.

For cuisine with a French flair, try La Columbe. Set on a working wine farm in Constantia Valley, La Colombe is just a twenty minute drive from Cape Town. This award-winning destination features a menu that includes local ingredients and a great wine list. The food is as exquisite as the surroundings.
