While it's true you could be anywhere on the planet, the Square is a great shopping destination with a lively atmosphere in the Square area. Right next to the train station. Our teenage daughters loved it!

A beautiful square with a good variety of restaurants and open air dining, not to mention access to shops and an African Craft market. Made for a comfortable and relaxing visit and will visit again when we have more time to do more exploring.

Although I rated it as Very Good, I have to say that I was a little disappointed. Here once can find all big names (Prada, Louis Vuitton, Patek Philippe, etc.), diamond stores, but only a couple of stores where one can buy some specific South African souvenirs.

In the square outside one can find some good restaurants where one can try from ostrich steak to Italian pizza or even fast food.

I would recommend a visit to the Nelson Mandela Museum (free entrance).

I loved this spot..We had so many restaurants to choose from and atmosphere was great! We ended up at an Italian restaurant facing the water fountain and at night, I would say it was rather nice. Love the outdoor, breezy feel while lounging in comfortable chairs as people walk by. Not exactly romantic like Piazza Navona but the same nice feeling,

Came with expectations but was little more than a nice bronze statue surrounded by restaurants and shops in a mall. A good and cheap meal to be had at most of the restaurants however.
