Food was delicious and service was great. They were nice enough to squeeze us in without a reservation, but I would recommend making one, even on a weeknight. Overall great experience.

Went with colleagues and had a really nice meal. Everything was well prepared and the server was extremely professional. The desserts are not to be missed!

We were treated to a great all round experience at 9th Ave Bistro. The service was excellent and the food was fantastic. The wine list is very good and staff are well trained. If one had to be hyper critical and deduct marks from the overall experience it would be that the outlook is on to a parking lot.

We had a work function at 9th Avenue Bistro for about 20 people. The food was good, definitely above average. The duck was excellent. Portions were generous. The damper on the evening was that we were placed at 2 separate tables!! There was no communication of this when the booking was made. After asking, if the table could be combined,... More

9th Av:.Bistro has for a number of years been recognised as "the best" restaurant in Durban and I would agree if you are looking for fine dining. A minimalist décor sets off the great food to perfection. I have eaten there many times and always send my guests from the Guest House there if they want a "special meal" and... More

There are a lot of pretenders in the city, they assume that paying lots of money means that the should be the best. 9th wins hands down, the total package can not be beat. Giselle's services was perfect, timously refilling the wines, and appearing the second before we even thought we might need something. Faultless service. When the food arrived... More

Rated one of the Top 10 Dining experiences in Durban, we were expecting a luxurious setting,the place is non discript, grey floor & walls, with a few pictures of flowers. There was outdoor seating, but the view is of the parking lot in a strip mall. while the propritor was very nice and friendly, the decor was nothing special. The... More

The personal service is excellent, the variety of food well prepared and an interesting wine list. A little out of the way, but we drove in pouring rain from Umhlanga for dinner and will more than likely do so again.
