Best prawns in a long time

I must have passed this restaurant a 100times or more, but it never really looked to inviting from the outside. We decided to have dinner there after our neighbor recommended it to us. We were very pleasantly surprised. Reasonable prices and very fresh prawns. I cannot really comment on any other... read more

I visited Durban for the weekend. We are from Cape Town and only had two opportunities to have romantic dinners. Lord Prawn was an absolute pleasure to go to. The food was fantastic, the service was prompt and extremely friendly, the setting and ambiance is what made it really romantic. It is one of the warmest and quaint restaurants I... More

Their service could be improved by ten fold and worst of all the tip is automatically included on the bill...which proves how much their service needs to improve coz they are scared their waiters wouldn't get a tip due to sub standard service.

Popped over for supper. My wife and I had Queen size prawns , which was delicious, one of the kids had Spare ribs, which he liked and the other one had Schnitzel, and according to him had to much crumbs. The service was not to bad, but can be sharpened up, taking into consideration the venue was full. All in... More

This is obviously a popular place. Crowded on a Thursday night. We had curries, one prawn and one lamb and the were both very good. Nothing to complain about. It's an OK place but nothing special.

Had the calamari and prawn combo, was absolutely delicious and the service was fantastic. Would recommend this place highly, definitely worth a visit while in Umhlanga.

We had a great prawn special here - my husband and I shared 16 Queen prawns for an amazing price. The prawns were fresh and well-cooked. They had no sauce on them - but three sauces were brought to the table - garlic, butter and peri-peri. Adding your sauce of choice makes these prawns lovely. Along with this, we just... More

We dined with another couple and found all dishes selected most delicious. The rock cod was particularly tasty and a very generous portion too. It was served with butternut and creamed spinach which was most tasty. The other dishes of queen prawns and prawns and calamari were just as delicious. Service was attentive but not annoying. The restaurant was busy,... More

I'm not a big fan of Fish restaurants in general, however I would recommend this one. My wife and I spent two evenings in which we enjoyed both our meals. My wife sampled Prawns in a creamy white wine sauce whilst I sampled the delights of the Kingclip fish with large prawns on a bed of rice. The prawns in... More

Had a great meal here and the service was very good. It's a fish restaurant so go for fish. It was packed which is always a good sign.
