This place is one of the most popular restaurants in Cape Town, so it is recommended to reserve well in advance. Locals visit this restaurant, but it is more a tourist thing. What you get is exotic dishes in a nice atmosphere. Live music is often played at the restaurant, in that case a small charge will be added to your table. Food mostly consists of exotic meat like crocodile or kudu, but “normal” meat as well as vegetarian dishes are served too. If you are looking for a place to spend a nice evening, get a somewhat stereotypical african experience and eat things you have never eaten before, then that’s the right place. Mama Africa is mentioned in many guides as a kind of “must do” when in Cape Town and there’s no reason to disagree.

Favorite Dish: I had kudu with a couple of vegetables and mealiepap. A mix of exotic meat and typical south african food.
