Busy, popular beer destination and Afro-Caribbean restaurant with a terrace out front, a brewery upstairs and a large indoor space. Overall probably the best list in Cape Town and the only place to find an authentic goat curry. A bit far out of the centre but If you don’t want to Uber it, Kenilworth train station is only 200 metres away and has a frequent trains to/from Cape Town Central until 20.30.

Top place in South Africa (and Africa) for craft beer. And beer in general.

This has to be the best craft beer restaurant in the whole of Africa. Great people, great vibe, great food and even better beer. What a selection - Rogue, CBC, Bad Dog, BrewDog, Boston, Duvel & more. Greg needs a medal for bringing us this place. Thanks to Rate Beer for helping me find it, my time in S.A. wouldn’t have been anywhere near as enjoyable without Banana Jam Cafe.

The best craft beer destination is South Africa by far! Great selection of beer on tap and bottled. Fantastic food and a very cool chilled out vibe. If I was a local I would live at this place!

Excellent vibe and a great place to enjoy a pint. You never know what might be on tap, but you know there will be plenty to choose from. Great place to sit and discuss different beers with beer lovers.

Best place in Africa, pretty much. The selection is fairly extensive for the country, and they do a good job getting beers that otherwise are impossible to find. The vibe is great and so is the food. We bought a jar of jerk sauce to take home. Good stuff, and a must stop in Cape Town. Walkable from the Kenilworth train, if you’re so inclined.
