Mama Afrika is a very busy restaurant in Cape Town, and well-known among tourists and locals alike, offering nice music and fulfilling that Cape experience. Thus, you have to make sure you have a reservation before going here...if you do have a guide, he or she may set you up.

After the new democracy of South Africa was established more than 10 years ago, they built this restaurant on Long Street which is at the very heart of the inner city of Cape Town.

The restaurant offers traditional African cuisine. Enjoy eating while you listen to tribal drumming and stare at its unusual 500-bottle Coca Cola chandelier.

If for anything, try to visit this restaurant just because of its history and close association with the new South African sentiments post-Apartheid.
