The views are great, if revolving views are your thing. The wine list is limited, the service is OK, the food takes ages to arrive and the dishes are all expensive. Not my taste.

A bit dated not sure the decor has been updated since it opened. The slowest service I have ever had with only one person taking orders. The food was ok but nothing special and the background music truely awful, not worth the price.

The meals were average portion size but had to order vegetable sides separately? The stuff were friendly... More

Went there on Friday 6 June 2014 with family, was able to book online and received a prompt response concerning a query about parking (secure parking can be had at the base of John Ross House - the area is fenced in and patrolled by guards - very safe). Booked for 7pm but arrived at 6.15pm, staff were very accommodating... More

There are only a few revolving restaurants in the world, and we are privileged to have such in Durban. The views are amazing with panoramic vistas of the city, harbor and ocean. Specific and theme based restaurants in Durban are hard to come by and revolving restaurant offers you just this. It is not your typical restaurant and definitely deserves... More

I've been to Roma eight or more times over the last 20 years. The experience is always great because of the unique location and the fact that the restaurant rotates! The views over Durban are amazing. The food is good but nothing special. It's consistent and well prices and one of those places you just have to try at least... More

Several sources - including our Lonely Planet - had advised the Roma Revolving Restaurant as a good place for food in Durban. The interior is a trip back to the 70s and 80s (including very old waiters) and we could see that in those days this probably was the it-place of Durban. However, the restaurant may have done a lot... More

The view is immaculate. Try to get there just before the sun sets! Sadly the quality of food has deteriorated since my last visit ten years ago! Service was terrible, having to wait for ages before someone even acknowledges that you exist!
