Elegantly Edible

Blissfully set amongst the fynbos, Afrikanos is a family-friendly restaurant serving up sheer joy. The charming stone walled, thatched roofed fisherman’s cottage’s interior will leave you breathless. Modern steampunk meets time-honoured elegance is whispered to you from the fire-engine inspired Birkenhead draught taps and the repurposed windmill blade chandelier. The menu is á la carte and serves up classics like pizza and burgers to more nuanced dishes such as various kinds of platters, sushi and homemade desserts, all created using only the freshest ingredients. Relax by the fireplace and have a light meal at a private business lunch or bask in the sun on the deck while you enjoy a feast with the family. No matter what the reason, time of day or the severity of your hunger, Afrikanos is the perfect place for you. Afrikanos has a separate childrens play area with supervision, is wheelchair and handicap accessible and can seat up to 116 people.

Business Information

tourism member


Born and bred in Gansbaai, Riaan Cordier, the owner of the Afrikanos restaurant, has over 25 years of experience under his belt in the hospitality industry. Previously, he was a head of department at the Avalon Springs Hotel in Montagu and was directly responsible for the organization of conferences and the catering of said functions. After a good stint at Avalon Springs he was approached by an old guest of his, Marc Kotze. He pitched an idea that would shook Riaan to his very core with excitement. Marc’s plan was to open a crocodile-cage diving experience in Gansbaai and proposed to Riaan to partner up with him and open the Afrikanos restaurant and serve delicious food with an utterly unique cage-diving experience.
