  • A nice place to visit and relax after shopping around Sandton city... great restaurants and even a hard rock cafe  more »
  • Our hotel was attached to a mega mall and the square. The square has a statue of Mandela and numerous restaurants line the square.  more »
  • The Nelson Mandela Square is Beautiful place. The Mandela statue seems to be a huge tourist attraction for selfies. It’s a lovely statue and distinctively marks the place. Lovely restaurants, great for evening dinners, for both groups or couples. Lots of options for those who love meat. And the water feature looks even more beautiful at night. Easy link to Sandton City Mall, you can park at either and just walk across.
  • Of course its five star. It's in the heart of the richest square mile in africa. The restaurants are great. The square itself is fabulous just to sit and watch the tourists and people in general enjoying the space.
