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

Sensational food! Best in Durban by a long shot. Really wish they would make the restaurant look as special as the food

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.

Trendy with a nice vibe. Great food and friendly service. Their modern fusion of fish dishes are worth exploring try the Kabeljou and the salmon.

I had been here years ago and remembered the 9th Ave Bistro happily. Located in a mediocre shopping center you wouldn't expect a first class restaurant like this. I recommended the restaurant to our group who attended a conference in Durban. We chose the tasting menu where a number of courses are coupled to a wine each. While the names... More
