We stopped in here for a quite bite before travelling to the King Shaka airport, which is a 5 min drive away. It is a great place to go if you are worried about being late for a flight. I was there with my wife and 2 children. We had a mix of seafood (excellent) and steaks. The steaks were... More

We enjoyed a great Sunday lunch on the terrace, with beautiful sea views, excellent service and outstanding food. The menu has a wide range of dishes, from seriously gastronomic to pizza.

The setting is spectacular .... Mundo Vida is a Durban institution with food of the highest quality and style. Gaze at the ocean whilst eating beautiful Natal oysters and seafood. The preparation and presentation are excellent with a good selection of SA wine ..... Definitely 5*

I see all the other diners with great looking food (steaks look really great) - but this meal is one of the best and although the size of the langoustine varies from visit to visit the quality does not. Not a cheap meal - but definitely... More

We were treated to lunch by our Aussie guest/friend and we were a little apprehensive not having eaten here before! Should never have been as we should be confident that anything the Wilkinsons did/do comes with a high rating!!! We could only get a booking for an inside table which was a disappointment as it was a glorious day (having... More

Superb service. Food was excellent, and beautifully presented ... All 3 courses! My husbands steak was cooked to perfection: medium, just as he ordered it. Friendly and attentive staff. A must when on holiday in Umdloti.

Very friendly staff and delicious food. The kinda restaurant you always come back to. Nothing better than looking at the ocean as you eat your seafood
