Fresh food

You get served the fresh food in a relaxed environment.The portion were generous enough. And we liked the taste of the dishes we ordered and could see the food was made with all fresh ingredients.Though we didn't feel welcoming ,as no one seem to care about checking on us but we liked the food .

The burgers here are pretty good, but other than that, the food here is rather average. Not exactly a budget meal either.

We have visited this restaurant on a number of occasions but this last time we noticed that the prices have become outrageous and the service is definitely lacking - we had 4 waitrons serving us for dinner which became very confusing! The menu was also limited due to an electricity cut (not their fault) but everything we could have under... More

We first visited this establishment in Feb 2015. Service was poor and the wait for the meals to be served is very long... so be prepared to wait for your meal... so 8 thought that maybe it was due to the busy day when we visited... Visited the restaurant again this morning. It was quieter than the first visit but... More

Hi there. Visited today and despite the slow service I enjoyed the food and venue. What I'd like to recommend is a change of menu it has not changed in years and it would be nice to find some additional options to try?

We literally got off the plane from CT and drove into Durban with time to spare before meeting family. I read about this place in Lonely Planet and the review was spot on. The restaurant was buzzing with Christmas lunches but they found us a table. The service was excellent, especially as it was so busy. The food was delicious... More

Love the restaurant. Had such a wonderful meal. The setting and vibe is perfect. Service is top quality. More pricey but we'll worth it. Waiters are very professional and honest and well trained. Best idea to open at night as well as day time. Well done to Market.

Went here for dinner on recent visit to Durban - could be better signposted. We hadn't booked and all inside tables and tables on the top balcony outside were all reserved. We were seated in the courtyard area which was OK by us, but were very disappointed that these tables were not set up with tablecloths for dinner (the other... More
