Roma has been there since we were kids and now we take ours there. Great Italian dishes very well prepared. We had the sole, the veal and the prawn ravioli and all were scrumptious. The crayfish bisque was flavorful and had plenty of chunks of crayfish. The crepes Suzette really made the evening. Prepared by the owner himself this was... More

I love new experiences and one of my fondest memories growing up in Durban, was going to the Roma Revolving Restaurant. It is something that has endured since my childhood, so on a recent trip back to Durban, I decided to take a trip back in time... After a hair raising trip down Point Road (definitely not the recommended route... More

This is a must do when you in Durban. The restaurant revolves around and you have a view of the harbour and city in 1 sitting. Very romantic and the food is excellent

This is one of the finest restaurants in Durban. The views are absolutely stunning, you have a 360 degrees of Durban and harbour and the restaurant revolves once every hour. You may get lost on your way back from the rest room :-) The food is great, really really great. I have been here so many times that I have... More

Dated but still the old fashioned with a touch of class especially if the owners are there. He makes the best Crepe Suzette at your table - nice touch ! Expensive and so we dont go there often but for a special occasion it is great as it is the only revolving restaurant in town and so it is a... More

I love the view - heck the place is like one of 16 revolving restaurants in the whole world (if I remember correctly) But I did not enjoy the food. The décor is old and drab I understand the theme is ancient Rome but they've taken it to another level. My one memory of the place is when we left... More

I have been going to roma for many years. Not any more. It has deteriorated badly this last year. You can wait up to an hour for your first course and although the view is magnificent the food is actually very average now and not worth the prices they charge. Last time i was there i waited 45 minutes just... More

The night we were there was during Diwali so the view was even more impressive. Average place, not pretentious but maybe a bit dated.
