We were there just to take a photo! Nothing more than that... The statue is in the middle of a big shopping center and surrounded by restaurants... If you wish you may have some food after you take your photo with N.Mandela Statue..

Its such a beautiful scenery one wouldn't miss. Nelson Mandela statue is a tourist attraction as people would even take pics next to it.

Great experience I would describe it as a lively and classy place to hang out and meet new people it's not too crowded. There are quite a few restaurant options too

Great location for dining - lots of restaurants to choose from and lots of shops to sample. Careful at night as it does become a favorite place for a certain type of lady and also pick pockets.

The only redeeming this is the larger than life statue of the beloved Madiba - Nelson Mandela. It is essential a shopping mall and if you're on an international trip and can think of nothing more interesting that a shopping mall you will perhaps enjoy this one. Certainly plenty of good restaurant options. .

I was really disappointed with Nelson Mandela square. I think he deserved a better one. At night no lights on his statue.

A great spectrum of awesome restaurants right in the Sandton business mecca. Easy access to the Gautrain as well
