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

The decor & (too large) menu are stuck in the 1970's. It also needs a good clean. There were chips & cutlery under our table. The host was surly. The only good thing is the view.

Frequented this enthralling circular restaurant for many years. Service is slow and waitron was stone deaf. Despite repeating our order numerous times , there was a mix up with our food. Our steward was untidy and clumsily placed our drinks on the table. The hygiene of this place has deteriorated and the garish wall painting left a bad taste in... More

On our last night in Durban my family and I visited the Roma. There were five of us in our party. The restaurant has parking which is shared with the Spar shop.You walk round to the door and take the lift- the restaurant floor is marked on the panel. The lift looks worn and the music is not too good.... More
