Just go for the view!

What an experience! The views are beautiful and time just fly by while you sit and enjoy the 360 degree views! Menu is a bit out dated and old school but we still had a great time!

On arrival we were made to wait for around 45 minutes, this while having a booking. Patrons who arrived long after us for a booking later than us were seated before we were, service was terrible to be honest and we felt like we were somehow a hassle to the older gentleman who was serving us. The décor is in... More

We felt rushed by the waiter, and the decor has clearly been there for years and hasn't been maintained. The food and the view was great though. Just wish the owners would take better care of the place...

Roma Revolving is in a class of it own and cannot unfortunately be compared with any other in Durban. The staff are friendly, meals were delicious, and excellent view the sky bar was like heaven. A restaurant that revolves while you eat why wouldn't anyone enjoy the experience. i know i did

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.
