FAQS

CAN WE BYO?

Sure can! $20 per bottle. We’re also fully licensed so you can try our booze too, if you like.

 

are you open for lunch?

sorry to say that we’re not. we are dinners only from tuesday-saturday and closed sundays and mondays.

 

Is there a surcharge for public holidays?

there is a 10% public holiday surcharge.

 

why do i need to provide credit card details?

unfortunately people don’t show up for their bookings sometimes. when this happens we need a way to recoup costs as we are a small business with limited seating. depending on the size of your booking the late cancellation fee is between $20 – $75. nothing is charged to your card so long as you let us know if you can’t make it. we understand that life happens so don’t be shy to tell us.

 

i’m vegan/coeliac/lactose intolerant/vegetarian/pescatarian/halal/kosher/nut allergy/seafood allergy. can i eat here?

SURE CAN! we have many options and not one of them is an obligatory salad. our “FEED ME” menu will also suit you. please do let us know when you book.

 

I’M FODMAP and/or can’t eat onion/garlic. CAN I EAT HERE?

SURE CAN! you will be a little restricted depending on severity. you still meet our zero obligatory salad policy. the “feed me” menu may not be available depending on your allergy levels. PLEASE DO LET US KNOW WHEN YOU BOOK so we can make sure you’re well catered for.

WHAT ARE YOUR SITTING TIMES?

WE run the restaurant over 2 sittings. 1st sitting is 6:00/6:30/7:00 and are all for a 2 hour sitting. 2nd sitting is 8:15/8:45/9:15 and you can stay forever if you don’t mind kipping on the bench.

 

WHAT is your bar seating like?

almost half our seating is at a bar. one is where we make food and one and one is where we make booze. the stools are cushioned and have a back like a standard chair. seating is communal and is side by side. for tables of 2 we recommend the bar as the place to be for a+ africola experience.

 

is there wheelchair access?

ABSOLUTELY! PLEASE DO LET US KNOW WHEN YOU BOOK AS NOT ALL OF OUR SEATING IS IDEAL. IF YOU’RE BOOKING ONLINE PLEASE DO NOT SELECT THE BAR SEATS.

 

Do you have a private dining area?

nope. it’s all communal, all the time.

 

can  we hire africola for a private event?

of course! WE OFFER PRIVATE RESTAURANT HIRE for all sorts of events. IF YOU’D LIKE TO KNOW MORE ABOUT IT PLEASE EMAIL [email protected]

 

CAN I BRING my children?

sure! We have a high chair in house suitable for all ages. Please let us know when you book. we are a small restaurant and don’t have room for prams. You’re more than welcome to bring it with you and collapse it for us to store. we want the fruits of your genetic labour to be comfortable. please do bear in mind that we are a loud place with booze and we’re not great at censoring ourselves. please note that our high chair cannot be used with bar seating.

"Africola may well be the hottest restaurant in the country. There was nothing like it before; there still isn’t. It’s just... better. It’s like Ottolenghi on steroids, with a sense of humour."
