“Fabulous pasta, fabulous lunchtime vibe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

What a pleasant surprise to be invited for lunch at Market near Greyville Racecourse and still find that the food was absolutely superb. I ordered a roasted chicken and pesto pasta and it was delicious. The service was efficient but more importantly for a Tuesday lunchtime the vibe was buzzing, trendy and amiable. Good to know that not all Durban's fine restaurants have headed north of the Umgeni River! Recommended!!!

The Market is great if you want something out of the ordinary for breakfast in Durban. Food is delicious and setting inviting.

“DELICIOUS”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

On a week long solo trip to Durbs, 'market' . took care of me for my evening meals! Great vibe, good choice menu, delicious food and attentive service. So refreshing to be in an owner run venue!
Highly recommend popping in, breakfast, lunch or dinner.

“Arrive in the morning...spend the day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

Arrived here for a quick bite to eat for lunch and left 3 hours later! Great ambiance, greater food and even greater fresh smoothies!

Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and will most definitely be back!
PS: don't go there rushed...you will there for a while!

“Nice ambience, average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

We came for lunch..The ambience was nice with live music and rustic feel.

The food is average though.. and the service was not so good as it took long for someone to attend to us even though the place was not busy.. not impressed.
