This Maboneng restaurant is more of an African stylish diner with  electric decor and a performance stage. It’s a Main Street Life diner that offers live entertainment while enjoying a Pata Pata meal made with warmth and love. The Pata Pata restaurant menu is filled with a variety of delicious African Cuisine inspired meals but if you’re more of a simplistic person you can have a delicious burger, wrap or salad.


I had a look at the reviews of this restaurant and found that their food is very delicious for most of the clients who shared the experience they had at Pata Pata. The menu itself looks very intriguing, also very reasonable when it comes to pricing. If you would like to indulge in some Pata Pata cuisine, you would spend approximately  R250.00 for two people.


PRuth Magazine’s Chief Editor, La-Tasha Pucoe experienced the food at Pata Pata and her review was:

” Pata Pata has a unique vibe. The food is amazing and one can tell that they put a lot of effort into the food and how it is presented on the plate. I would definitely eat there again.”

Other reviews:

“Drinks at Pata Pata is my favorite! Especially the long Island ice tea.”

“Pata Pata is by far my favorite place to eat. The food is absolutely delicious! Love spending my Saturday nights there.”

Pata Pata is located right in the heart of Maboneng Precinct, adding to the variant and sophisticated lifestyle of the downtown Johannesburg city. The environment itself is filled with vintage buildings that are turned into new and more modern developments but still keeping that 1960’s feel.

Pata Pata has definitely also kept the 1960’s feel with some modern touchings, the decor is quite a “rusty” interior which gives the room a cozy atmosphere. On Mondays you can unwind to some live Jazz music  while you enjoy your meal.
