my wife & I visited Jabula on Saturday lunch time. We had a Groupon voucher which entitled us to the taster menu. This is the perfect way to be introduced to South African food & we tasted for the first time crocodile, ostrich, zebra & springbok. We will definitely return in the evening & look forward to the entertaiment that... More

Saw this restaurant on Groupon, so decided to give it a go. You need a sat nav as there are no road signs but when you get there the setting is an ideal waterside frontage. The staff were very welcoming and genuinely happy to have the Groupon voucher. Starters were delicious including crocodile. The main course consisted of Ostrich, Zebra,... More

We have been here a couple of times now for both lunch and dinner and it has always been a delight. Attentive staff, delicious food, hearty portions and a fabulous restaurant that looks so authentic and has a fabulous atmosphere. Not too pricey and always a giggle to be entertained by bush tucker trials and bongos. I can highly recommend... More

If you like to try new restaurant I can certainly recommend this one.It was a birthday celebration for my husband with all the family.The waitresses are dressed in South African Kaftan type wear with jewelled make-up to create the best atmosphere. There are 2 bongo players keeping the background music going with animal masks and ornaments all around so you... More

My husband and I went to Jabula tonight for the first time. We saw an offer on Groupon and decided to go. The food was beautiful and the atmosphere was lovely. The decor and inside surroundings really made you feel in South Africa itself. I would definitely recommend it to anyone. We will definitely be going back 😄

OK, this will probably sound like I've been paid to write it, but I honestly haven’t. This is the best place I have ever eaten. The food was out of this world and yes, it is South African food, but the crocodile was delicious, the ostrich was perfectly cooked and I could go on....... The staff was superb, they were... More

Jabula, is the 1st time we have been to a South African restaurant in the UK, drawn in by the great Trip Advisor score. Location wise this is a little bit off the beaten track, but it was full, it seemed the locals like it - 4 birthday celebrations while we were there. The food is interesting, not the best... More
