Schotlandstraat 61

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating



Receive a warm welcome from husband and wife Marvin & Sharla, as they serve the most tempting local and international dishes.

The safari-themed ambiance of the casual Waka Waka Adventure Café & Cantina provides an additional element of interest to an equally intriguing menu selection.

Waka Waka is a small, family-owned restaurant that delivers a boundless dining experience.

The traditional recipes of Sharla’s mum, “Machi” (Grandma) Betty, contribute that special something to all of Waka Waka’s featured dishes. Homely meals are prepared with a modern twist, in hearty portions.

Considered a hidden gem among island guests in the know, Waka Waka offers the cosy, tranquil ambiance with just the right touch of ‘wildness’. The safari theme is distinctive and meant to further titillate the senses.

A choice of indoor or outdoor seating allows you to either enjoy a contemporary, wildlife-inspired setting, or dine under the stars with the cool caress of the island breeze. Waka Waka is only a five minute drive from all major hotels. It also serves as gathering point for ABC Jeep Tours.

Opening hours from Tuesdays to Sundays, 5:00 pm -10:00 pm. Closed on Mondays.
