‘Joy’ is a word that comes to mind when you meet Saeed, who is genuinely delighted to meet every one of his guests, and makes each one feel like a long lost friend. Saeed, originally from Saudi Arabia, has an irresistible charm – and it is this charm that catapulted him and his equally delightful wife, Rika, within a short space of time after their arrival in Swellendam, from a humble (but special) pop in / takeaway café   “Joy in a Jaffle” , to their own unique cafe/ restaurant, Joy LAfrique, which became wildly popular with both local and international guests alike. Saeed and Rika share a love and deep rooted passion for food which  they have turned into a lucrative career.

After being approached by the owners of Rotterdam Boutique Hotel, the couple decided to take on a new challenge with the enthusiasm and passion for which they are famous.  They set up their restaurant at the beautiful hotel within one week.

The menu boasts delicious local dishes that have a twist of Middle Eastern tastes, making it a true taste sensation. The food is simple, but tastefully prepared and beautifully presented.

The best news is that the restaurant is open to the public on Wednesday evening, though prior reservation is essential.

Join us for a culinary experience like no other.
