If you are in Johannesburg or "J Burg" as the South Africans refer to it as, then a very good place to visit is the very busy, popular spot known as Nelson Mandela Square. This is definitely the place to go for all of the action. First, it is a very safe area to hang out at, but do take a taxi, or shuttle to get there, if you are visiting from out of town. The whole atmosphere is quite touristy, but there is much to offer everyone, including the locals. Some of the best restaurants are right there, including two that we had dinner there on two different nights, namely The Butcher Shop and Grill, and Pegalles. See my reviews on both places under those names. We enjoyed the large Shopping Mall there, part of the large complex. And the wonderful picture opportunities are a must of the large statue of Nelson Mandela in the square. Go enjoy!!
