We visit this restaurant with my parents who like the outdoor venue. We have only had light lunches and these are average and service is sometimes slow. However, we will continue to use this restaurant as it is a nice venue.

Pity about the bees, otherwise lovely and refreshing. Gardens are beautifully manicured. The service is quite slow but rewarding.

My family has celebrated many special occasions at The Blue Zoo in Mitchell Park, Morningside, Durban. It has an al fresco area where one can sit under shady umbrellas and enjoy the beautiful flower beds in the park. The food is always good and for a recent birthday party, it was outstanding.
