Went here last year and it was fantastic. This year it was dire to say the least. Poor food and poor service. VERY slow service. Didn't have the wine I wanted and was offered another but when the bill came got charged extra for the wine. Food was a disgrace and small portions. Don't think I will be going there... More

Very different dining experience. We travelled a little out of our way for this and it was well worth it. Bf had the mixed grill which included such meat as zebra and crocodile which was very tasty. I went for the safer lamb shank option which was beautifully presented and the best lamb shank I've ever had. Whilst we were... More

Our third visit to Jabula & the food was excellent as usual. Especially enjoyed the birthday challenge for my husband. Would definitely recommend as Jabula has polite staff, great food and a relaxed setting. We are from South Africa and the food was just like home!

First time we have been to this restaurant. It was absolutely superb. Atmosphere was wonderful, food great. A lovely touch was when they came out with a piece of cake and a candle and sang happy birthday to my friend. The entertainment was excellent as well and they like you to join in making music. Best meal and night out... More

We had mixed platters (game Africa) which were fantastic. The setting next to the canal is also lovely. The best thing about jabula however is the staff. Never have we come across such friendly and accommodating staff. The owner even held our 5 month old so we can eat in peace - parents will know what a rare treat this... More

I used to live in Cheshire and visit this restaurant regularly but have been gone for 3 years so thought as we were up that way we would try again. The food is fantastic, all piping hot, fresh and beautifully presented. Staff are very attentive (apart from tall white guy who had attitude) and the service is second to none.... More

Arranged surprise birthday for my husband there. Staff were fantastic. They were well organised, accommodating, great with the kids and the entertainment was brilliant. The drummers were fab! Thank you staff of Jabula! We will definitely be back again.
