Madiba Restaurant

Stepping into Madiba is like bursting into the Kasbah; billowy interior canopies, a wooden bar and pillow-topped benches transport you to a fantastic getaway. Madiba, which opened in 1999 as the first South African restaurant on the East Coast, is a tribute to Nelson Mandela. (“Madiba” means “Father of the Nation.”) Owner Mark Henegan’s unique South African recipes include the Durban samosas (lightly curried vegetables in a pastry triangle served with mango “archaar,” spicy pickled mango), “potjie bredie” (a slow-cooked stew served in a three-legged, cast-iron pot) and ostrich carpaccio with marinated sweet peppers. Desserts include the Klipdrift brandy tart. Listen to South African-inspired musicians and singers as you enjoy your meal. Terrace seats available, weather permitting. Open daily for brunch, lunch and dinner.
