9th Avenue Bistro is a classic restaurant that will take the older folk back to the 80's where you have white table cloths, watrons to make sure your glass is always full and when you leave the table, you napkin is refolded and placed on your side plate. That aside the food is phenomenal. May be on the expensive side,... More

For exceptional cuisine accompanied by an excellent winelist and service, this is the resturant of choice in Durban. Being family owned brings the personal touch. The menu is changed often enough to remain up to date.

Food was absolutely delicious and waiters were attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable. Location was less than appealing although they did a good job of hiding the outside. Decor was a touch dated and prices were a touch high , but overall a very pleasant experience!

This is not a restaurant for casual dining - it's very expensive but perfect for a special occasion. The food is delicious and the service five star.

Am staying in Durban for a conference and came to 9th Avenue last night with a colleague. Food is bistro-style but of a very high quality for its type. Food was all perfectly cooked and delicious. We enjoyed fried calamari, which was very tender and info at all chewy/rubbery as can sometimes be the case. The beef sirloin steak I... More

Always a nice experience. Food is excellent. Service is efficient and you feel right at home . We prefer the verandah only because we find it too noisy inside There is absolutely no view but the food and service compensates

Our 3 family members each had a different starter and main course. Each dish was faultless, beautifully cooked, well presented and seasoned. The service was equally good. I'd certainly recommend 9th Avenue Bistro and would pay them another visit when next we're in Durban.
