What an experience!! On the 32nd floor - I must admit I was a bit scared especially after using the tiny lift to get up to the 32 floor, but the food and the view was amazing and extremely affordable. Would go back in a heartbeat!

Having been going to Roma for years was slightly disappointed, Starter was good, main course ( rack of Lamb ) disappointed, for the price and size not worth it, little touches like before of bringing chips and vegetables out on a sliver plate not there anymore, just little potions on a small plate but atmosphere still good and service still...

Hi, No banner on arrival as requested. Waited a while to be attended to, after the lady finished on the phone. Service was very good. Food was average and overpriced. I received about 150g of springbok (3 thin (about 5mm )slices of meat about a palm size) with mash and veg (R160)), expected more. presentation average. Decor outdated. Other 4... More

Last night my family gave me a wonderful birthday gift. They took me to the Roma Revolving restaurant in Durban. Our children were delighted with the class of the restaurant and one of them commented, "It feels like we are in Los Angeles. Or somewhere else overseas." And so it did. The food was simply awesome. Italian food at its... More

Celebrating our wedding anniversary at the Roma was disappointing because of bad service, noisy children and annoying music. The food was incredibly delicious and the views stunning, which could make one forgive the shocking service and horrific music, stuck on two tracks for 2 hours, and then in the lift going to the car park as well....screeeeech!

Up on the 32nd floor, this place has amazing views of Durban passing before your eyes. We came across it by chance and had a pleasant meal with attentive service, but not overwhelming. Slightly old fashioned feeling but comfortable and unusual. Worth a try.

Took the family as a special occasion for the novelty setting - that's all it was, a novelty setting! Arguably the most expensive & worst meal we've ever had! Manager did not greet us upon arrival, merely showed us to our table & thrust menus at us then disappeared. Waiter tried to repeatedly rush us into ordering. My prawn cocktail... More

If only the food matched the view . As a former durbanite , the view is breathtaking . If you are a tourist, I would recommend going up there and having a glass of water or a drink but please stay away from the food . If you are looking for a special place to celebrate an event , Durban... More
