Visited here in 2006 with Chipping Sodbury rugby club. Was a monumental tour and we had some fantastic experiences. The revolving restaurant was a great night out with great food and very friendly staff.

The Roma will always be a classic, unique as a revolving restaurant. It offers a magnificent view of all Durban, something very special; waiters are very friendly and attentive, and the menu has something for everyone.

The grande dame of Durban hosted by the legendary Gino Leopardi. Giant salads to start. Superb veal and duck have been my favourites down the years. Resist the offer of the garlic bread. It's baked elsewhere I suspect and arrives on the table rather tired. Can't recall if they still do the house wine in a decanter. Some investment in... More

I have eaten at Roma Revolving many times over their many years of existence. Unfortunately the city's preferred locations have moved from here. Use their supplied parking at night as it is a destination that is worth experiencing, but not the journey to it at night. Good food. Great experience. Nice people. Good service. But take getting there

I was told that the Roma Revolving is one of the best restaurants in Durban, I was sadly very disappointed. Firstly the decor is in a serious need of an upgrade and the curtains are fading and ragged. The service was mediocre, the manger/owner was very helpful in suggesting some dishes for us and went as far as making a... More

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
