Awesome evening

We visited the restaurant on the 17th after looking for a fusion restaurant. We tried the chef's 10 course menu and were pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent presented with amazing and combinations. Well worth visiting and a restaurant I will keep on my list to revisit when in Durban.

Hoping for a romantic evening out, we were seated in a doorway with a view of the parking lot with icy wind hitting us. Couldn't enjoy the meal and despite requesting to be moved (in an empty restaurant) our request could not be accommodated. We will not visit again.

Definitely deserves it's accolade of best restaurant in Durban. Each course a treat for the tastebuds! Would recommend to travellers from overseas who will recognise fantastic value for what is surely a contender for a Michelin star. Thanks for a memorable evening

We had such a good time! The Chefs 6 course tasting menu with wine paring was amazing! I just wish I lived closer. Great food, great service!

This restaurant is a family favorite of ours. The food is prepared brilliantly! The chef combines different flavours and ingredients to create interesting, delicious dishes. After several years of eating here, I am yet to be disappointed. Their lamb shoulder is a must have...Bon Apetit!

We were a party of 6. Starters mains and desserts were all excellent. Particularly the desserts! Everyone of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal. It is no wonder that this remains one of Durbans best restaurants. The ideal restaurant if you want to impress clients or celebrate a special occasion. You will most certainly not be disappointed

We had the Winter tasting menu. Every course was exquisitely prepared and the flavours were divine. Will definitely recommend this menu to anyone who wants to experience a gastronomic experience.

Probably the best restaurant in Durban. It is hard to choose what to eat because everything is delicious. The service is very good and personnel.

This is an excellent restaurant in Durban. South Africa. The food is cosmopolitan with excellent choices and the service is really "slick". You do not wait for more than a few seconds before someone attends to you. I strongly recommend this restaurant for a very pleasant meal.
