From bunnychow to game platters and vegetarian... More

The ambience was delightful & a lovely tranquil view outside rather than the hustle & bustle of restaurants in the city centre. So very glad we chose and we will be definitely be visiting... More

The deal offered 3 courses of traditional South African food and we weren't disappointed. This was a great way to taste various meals from the menu and left us wanting more! Hard to pick out a favorite but the Cape Bobotie and Pot Luck was delicious. We will go back, that is for sure!

My second visit to Jabula and again I was not disappointed. The restaurant has friendly staff and the food is authentic, taste and very well cooked. Not to mention the pudding! Always a friendly happy atmosphere. Look forward to coming back.
