“Great place to feel at home!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Located in the heart of Cape Town on the always busy Greenmarket Square, Mumbo Jumbo is the place to be. Having a chat with Sabrina and Clive, listening great music, enjoying delicious meals and my favorite, sitting on the window sofa with an ice cold beer ... I'll be back for sure.

“Great place to people watch!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

Mumbo Jumbo is a great little place to sit and watch the daily goings on of Cape Town pass by. Sitting outside on the square or in the window on a lovely couch I have passed many hours with a drink in hand. Clive and Sabrina the owners are always friendly and Sabrina whom is originally from Switzerland is always happy to chat and give advice on where to go in Cape Town.
They have great Craft beer on tap and the menu has daily specials which is always tasty and really good value for money. Their burgers are GREAT! Clive has amazing taste in music so there are always great music on which gives this little place a great ambiance.

“In the heart of it all!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

If you want to feel right in the middle of things, get yourself on the window hot seat at Mumbo Jumbo in Green Market Square. With a delicious cocktail in our hands, we sat on the cool retro sofa which gives you a full view of the hustle and bustle of the square and you literally watch the world go by. Topped with the yummiest chicken lollipops and fab tunes, it's the perfect drop in to rest weary shopped out feet. Be sure to reserve the window sofa, it's the best seat in the house!
