Quite often better to book especially at the weekends as food and prices are excellent. Wide range of seafood dishes but a very varied menu overall. Good quick service and would definitely visit again

Fresh locally harvested oysters, crayfish straight from our doorstep in the Indian Ocean and mussels collected off the rocks all contributed to a delicious and gastronomic seafood feast. We were hosted by friends who regularly visit the restaurant and profess it to be the best choice in seafood and fish in greater Durban. We agreed with them as the "pointe... More

Excellent seafood supper with a relatively good wine selection. The interior decorating is slightly odd and out-dated and sadly the tables are situated too close to one another. Lovely experience none the less.

We found this little gem of a place on the last day of our holiday. It is a quaint little place but the service and food is top notch. Our waiter was on the ball, we didn't have to ask him for a thing whether a wet wipe, water or tooth pick everything always just appeared as it was needed.... More

There's something so right about eating fish when at the seaside. Lord Prawn's seafood dishes haven't disappointed us yet. :)

The service was excent; if you like to be rushed and asked every 5 minutes what you would like to order. We felt like they were trying to rush us as to get our table for more customers especially with it being the peak season in Umhlanga. The food was okay, nothing memorable about it except that there is no... More

We have been going to Umhlanga for many years but for some reason never tried Lord Prawn. On our arrival we might have been a bit sceptical seeing as the decor is reminiscent of the early eighties restaurant decor that you go all over SA (with a few blingy Christmas decorations thrown in). But boy oh boy were we surprised!... More

We had dinner twice at Lord Prawn during December and I would recommend them to anyone. Their food are consistent and you know what you get. Best Prawns in the Southern Hemisphere.

Went on the 30th of December for Seafood. Ordered the Prawn and Lobster Combo, 1kg Queen Prawn Special and a Seafood Combo. The Prawns were dry and absolutely tasteless, unless used with the sauces that they give to you on the side. For the price paid the amount was absolutely perfect, however would have thought that a restaurant with the... More
