As a small girl I use to love eating at the revolving restaurant with my dad. I revisited this December with friends. Still looks the same and has an amazing view. Unfortunately the food was a major let down. It was over priced for the portion and value. Two of the men where stuck in the bathroom after eating the... More

The decor of the restaurant is a bit outdated but is more than made up for by the view. The restaurant was full, but this didn't appear to affect the service at all. We didn't have to wait very long for food or drinks and there was always a waiter available. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meal, and I... More

Things haven't changed much since it opened in 1973! The cuisine is still truly in the 70's ilk, butter and cream still playing a vital role! Even the aging Gino still thinks he is the young Italian Stallion chatting up all the girls! As I said above if you don't have a cholesterol issue go mad with the tastes of... More

We had dinner at the Roma Revolving Restaurant last night - and the view never fails to be awesome! We arrived at 18:00 so you get to see everything in the light and then watch night fall as your do your 360 of Durban. It's best to focus your view outside because the interior is just tacky! The decor has... More

Ok, I thought I was the only one that called this place Roma Revolting, but I see others have coined the phrase too. I make a point of coming here for the rotating view, but have always been disappointed with the food. The Italian manager/host is a really nice guy who has obviously been in catering/hospitality all his life, even... More

We found our host very accommodating and the service was great. The Italian owner went out of his way to turn the evening into a special experience for my wife. Food was reasonable but the menu can do with a "facelift". Be sure to book in advance.

I found all 3 experiences rather disappointing. First time, I ordered, what I thought would be an authentic Italian meal, only to find the only authentic Italian anything, was the owner, and even then, it was cheesy, in the wrong kind of way. The only thing they have going for them now, is the fact that it revolves, and that... More
