Quality food, great menu. Price is very good considering the quality of the meal. Have dined here numerous times, and taken many guests here, and never been less than impressed. A must for anyone in durban.

I was in Ballito over the December break and made not 1 but 2 trips to 9th Avenue because I just cannot get enough of this place. The food is up-market without being pretentious, the ambience is relaxed without trying too hard and the service is just another reason why I love this place so much. The staff are as... More

I had a perfect New Year's Eve dinner with friends at this restaurant. For that evening there was a set menu available. I had a pre-appetizer lychee sorbet with beetroot-cured trout was so good, followed by quail breast and leg dumpling with crispy egg.. I chose Norwegian salmon with lemon and herb risotto for mains and it was incredibly faultless.... More

I decided to take my in laws out for a nice meal in Durban. They are native durbanites and they had never been to this bistro. Admittedly they were skeptical at first because the prices were higher than they are use to. All doubts left the table as soon as the bread hit our mouths. After that every bite of... More

I had dinner with my wife a friends as part of a get together. The food was excellent. The preparation of the meals cannot be faulted, v pricey though. Parking is also a challenge as well. Would we return...Not sure.

Friends took us out to eat at this restaurant, and we were treated to the most delicious meals we have had in a long time. The lamb shank was to die for, the meat was soft and tender. We found the meals pricey though. The service was also very good.
