Went with part of my family and had a most enjoyable evening with the staff very friendly and the manager often called at our table to make sure everything was in order. Our meal varied from sea food to steak and duck,all being excellent. Being a Monday night the restaurant was more than half full. A great place to go... More

This may not be posted because it has been a long time since we were there, but I just recommended this restaurant to Swiss friends visiting Durban. I checked the ratings and comments. It is still excellent, just as we recall. That kind of consistency, year after year, is very difficult to achieve. So another star. It's a sign of... More

The service was good , the food was outstanding and good value for money. The restaurant was clean and tidy but quite bland with regards to atmosphere and decor, but overall a good dining experience.

Tucked away in the corner of the Avonmore Centre, we were unsure what to expect. We really shouldn't have been, as we were warmly welcomed by the staff and the evening just got better from there. The menu was varied and I am only sorry that we weren't in town long enough to manage another visit so we could work... More

An absolutely wonderful place for lunch. We had the tasting menu with the wine pairing. The food was beautifully presented, creative, and extremely flavorful. The wines paired perfectly with each course. In addition to the food, the service was excellent. The courses were not all rushed together, with just the right amount of time for conversation and relaxation between each... More

The service is always superb which is not a given these days. Definitely recommend their food and wine pairing evenings. Been to a few of these and its really and... More

My wife and I had a fantastic evening at 9th Ave Bistro last night. We opted for the tasting menu whilst I included the wine pairing as an option. Each and every course was delicious, stand outs were the butternut ravioli (I will go back simply to enjoy this as a main!), the blackened linefish with roasted tomato and fennel... More

After seeing it's high rating on trip advisor we booked a table at 9th ave bistro and we're not disappointed! The menu is small which is always a good sign, they have seasonal specials that change daily and are happy to accommodate your requests, turning a starter into main etc. The staff however were my favourite part of this restaurant....
