Robben Island Museum

Robben Island Museum

Robben Island, approximately 12 km off the Table Bay coast, is steeped in history and has served, amongst other things, as a military base and leper colony. It has also been a penitentiary for many years and was where Nelson Mandela and other political prisoners were incarcerated since the nineteen-sixties. Since 1997 it has become a museum and guided tours, which last about three and a half hours and include a visit to the Maximum Security Prison, are available. Robben Island was declared a World Heritage Site in 1999.



Touted as the "First Kurdish Restaurant in South Africa", Mesopotamia is centrally located and offers live entertainment nightly by way of belly dancers. The tandoori cooking is Halaal and a meze variety is available, whilst main courses include dishes such as Yagni (spicy lamb ribs) and Guvech (baked vegetables with cheese). Open daily from 18h00 (except Sundays, when it is closed). Parking is available and there is an outside dining option. Major credit cards are accepted.
