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.

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

The views are great, if revolving views are your thing. The wine list is limited, the service is OK, the food takes ages to arrive and the dishes are all expensive. Not my taste.

A bit dated not sure the decor has been updated since it opened. The slowest service I have ever had with only one person taking orders. The food was ok but nothing special and the background music truely awful, not worth the price.
