Without Doubt My No.1 Restaurant Choice in Durban

I have eaten at Spice on more the one occasion, and I have never been disappointed. Spice puts up dish after dish of flavor and deliciousness. Linda and Russel have always accommodated me, even on short notice with a group of 35 people! The food is freshly made, the service is what one would expect... read more

Its difficult to rate a restaurant where the quality of the food and the quality of service are so different. The food was excellent, as well as the setting on a good day. The service was shocking. It should not take 45 minutes for a coffee, plus a further half an hour to receive the bill after it was requested.... More

I was under the impression that Spice would have an Indian menu of curries. But I was mistaken and not disappointed. It was lunch time and chose the fish and chips off the smaller menu. Wow what a feast. Not oily, tasty and I cleaned my plate. My husband had a chicken stuffed with camerbert and ham and he loved... More

The best meals are often the ones where you get accomplished food in unexpected places. In our case, this is exactly what happened when we visited Spice for lunch. Flavours varied from subtle in the calamari, cucumber and avocado salad to lots of big front-of-mouth flavours such as chilli, lime in the tempura prawns with salsa. Both our mains, Fillet... More

ALWAYS a great place to visit. Service is above and beyond one's usual experience with the staff being both pleasant and helpful and not over the top. Been there a number of times and not been disappointed as yet. The ambiance of the setting is both intimate and relaxed, topped off with the wonderful view of the sea and the... More

This restaurant is local for us and we are very glad they moved here from their previous premises. We go often and though the food can sometimes be indifferent but mostly it is good. The service is very slow but waitrons are very pleasant and the atmosphere and surroundings are conducive to relaxing and taking our time anyway. The owners... More

Expected slightly more from the reviews. Service was good (just a little unseasonable sniffing waitress). Nice little focaccia on the house to start. Starter of tempura prawns with papaya salsa was very tasty but batter was more than a little on the hard side of crunchy. The curries come with sambals, achar, chutney, roti, basmati rice and a pampadum which... More

First time back since under new ownership. Setting remains one of the best in KZN. Our party covered the spectrum of the main courses and each was pronounced excellent. Attentive, good service. Hands on owner.
