Graham & Gina Neilson are professionals delivering S.A.'s freshest seafood with world-class finesse. Didn't open the menu as each evening's 'special' was exceptionally special. Genuinely recommend this spot for any fellow 'foodie' or oenophile.

We were only in Durban for two nights and this was our choice for dinner on the first evening. We chose it from the EatOut magazine and were not disappointed. The menu was very interesting and there were specials as well. For the main course, my husband had wildebeest and I had ostrich - both very tasty and the accompaniments... More

Excellent food, well presented, wonderful ambiance. I'd be surprised if they put a foot wrong! This is one of Durban's better known eatery's. Its not a copycat French or other type cuisine, simply they serve excellently prepared food from an appealing menu and carry out one's expectations right until they wish you "au revoir".

This restaurant is a sure winner everytime _ one is never afraid of taking friends there, as there is never a disappointment. The menu is creative and imaginative - the food is beautifully prepared and artistically plated. The service is attentive, efficient and prompt, and the staff are very friendly. There is always a good "buzz" and guests are obviously... More

We have eaten here many times over several years and have never had a bad meal. The quality is consistent and the menu always interesting. It is a smallish restaurant but there is a nice outdoor (covered) seating area. My only little gripe is that the acoustics is not great as the floor is tiled.

We eat here often. The food is always excellent and the service profesional. I almost always have the quail starter. This is hard to beat if you like game. In a nutshell, we have never walked away feeling like we have had an average meal. You can trust this restaurant if you are a "foodie" - yum!

Good restaurant, but way off those that are even mediocre in the Cape and Johannesburg. Does the restaurant compare to those that are well "down the list" in the Cape? Not at all; not even close. Outdoor seating without any view - other than a parking lot. Tasting menu: salad with too much sauce (an apparent SA problem); tasting menu... More
