We had a business dinner at Marco Paulo on Friday night at the suggestion of a friend. What a great choice. We are from Glenwood in Durban and the business colleagues were staying in Umhlanga. We are so glad we went here for a change. Although it was rather pricey the food and the atmosphere was top top top drawer.... More

Tucked away in a small shopping centre it does not have the views but if you are in the area and want good food in a relaxed restaurant this is a good option. The owner is very friendly and takes the time to meet the patrons. Service was good and the food has always been very good. The deboned peri... More

Great food, great service and good atmosphere. Maybe a little noisy but I could just be getting old! The bar next door is ideal for pre drinks with nice craft beers and a great selection of wines.

We had a wine club dinner here last night, and I was very impressed. Not only did the manager pick up on my question on wheat free options and immediately offer me a wheat free focacia bread, the service from the waiter for the rest of the evening was the best i have had in a restaurant for some time....

Went for dinner with my wife, the service was excellent from start and finish and very attentive. The restaurant was noisy and boisterous especially with the bar next door. Certainly not the right atmosphere for a romantic dinner, yet enjoyable vibe. The wine list is excellent with a superb selection of wines obviously a lot of effort has been put... More
