“Incredible Statue”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Of course the huge statue of Nelson Mandela is the highlight of this venue. There are a ton of restaurants to choose from, shopping in the mall for some really unique items, and great people watching. Be sure to get a picture with the bronze statue.

“Shopping, Dining, People Watching”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Enjoyed afternoon tea here as well as dinner every evening. A perfect place to shop etc. There's a public library on one side of the square that offered a chance to browse materials and experience a SA library.

“Walking area in Jo'burg”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

Mandela square is one of the few safe walking area in Johannesburg. It's mostly a commercial centre and a restaurant area, but it's very pleasant. I would recomment the butcher for restaurant! Excellent meat!
