That was one of the most interesting dinners i've ever had, and it was really delicious. I took the dish called "Game Africa", so i tried zebra, ostrich, crocodile and some african deer (i can't remember the proper name of the animal... ;) ). Except for the ostrich, all of them were new to me, really interesting experience. African beer... More

We were a group of 9 and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening here. The food was unusual, but good and it was nice to try some different dishes such as crocodile. The service was good and the staff friendly and accommodating. The food was of a good quality and large portions. Good place to eat.

I have eaten here twice and both times the food and service have been excellent. Each table is made to feel welcome, birthdays are celebrated with a song and the staff are very knowledge able about the menu. It offers excellent value for money without compromising on taste. Jabula is now my favourite restaurant. Tip: want to add some fun... More

Have been here in the evening but mainly call in for lunch with friends or family. Great setting - often see ships sailing up the canal, lovely staff and really good food. Highly recommended.

The first time I ever came across Jabula was on the night itself(Fri Oct 10th), as I went with a dining group as part of a secret supper evening, so we did not know that we were to be dining at Jabula, until we arrived there. From start to finish this was for me the best dining experience I've ever... More

Really handy for a meal with a difference if you are staying at the Holiday Inn. Only a 3 minute walk away. Quite an experience to eat while a huge ocean going ship slips by, just out of the window. A chance to eat African game such as Kudu, Zebra, Ostrich and crocodile. The chicken livers in peri peri sauce... More

We did a Living Social Deal, 10 courses for £29 and it was incredible. I would have liked more game, less chicken - but for £29 for ten courses for two it was amazing!! Its small and quite intimate. Friday nights they have drummers and a bit of a bop if you are up for it - we are so... More

Visited jabula last night for a birthday meal with the family. Excellent service and our server took time to explain the various dishes and make recommendations. I didn't have a starter and opted for the ribeye steak. My partner had the African selection which was a mix of several types of meat, I tasted each one and have to say... More
