Restaurant is ok. Service is slow. Food is not much to talk about. To me just too many waiters around for a medium size restaurant. But it will do. Not many animals around. And NOT wheelchair friendly at all. I was there when i was a kid now that was a good place. But i think times have changed.

This is a nice garden with a restaurant and a small zoo for kids. try to avoid Sundays as it is very crowded. the food at the Blue Zoo restaurant is very reasonable with a pianist playing and special activities for the kids.

The food is good, but not great at the Blue Zoo Cafe. However, when in Durban, you have to at least have some tea and scones there, or maybe a late and lazy breakfast: out in the open, plenty of place for the kids to run around, beautiful flora, and for a few Rands, you can go in and explore...

Lovely way to spend the day outdoors.Enjoy beautiful trees and greenery or take a walk through the small scale "zoo". Swings and slides available for kids as well as table and chairs and a small restaurant.

The animals kept at Mitchell Park are in tiny cages & I have a big problem with this. The park itself is unremarkable, no charge. The Blue Zoo restaurant however, was a big delightful find before I had seen the zoo, but hopefully the owners have nothing to do with the zoo otherwise I'll feel terrible for recommending it. The...

It is a beautiful park and (for the price, R9) a pretty good zoo. We had lunch at the Blue Zoo and thought the prices and outdoor patio atmosphere was very enjoyable. On Saturday they had a piano player as well.

Mitchell Park is a beautifully kept area in upper Morningside ... the gardens are always immaculate and a blaze of colour, no matter what the season. A children's playground keeps the youngsters happy, as does the zoo. The Blue Zoo restaurant there is an ideal spot for brunch, lunch or dinner, or even just a coffee/wine and light snack. Try...
