“Tapas promedio!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Vicky Christina's in Umhlanga is gift wrapped in seductive pseudo Spanish décor but that's where the illusion ends. The staff are friendly and helpful but the service is erratic and the tapas leaves much to be desired. Good tapas portions should be small but generous, creative and bursting with flavour. Sadly the offerings here are not and, when coupled with the high end pricing, this experience left us frustrated and unsatisfied.

“Hmm”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

Really nice atmosphere and a lot of fun but not a tapas bar. Really a mixture of a lot of things and all the food was quite mediocre. Probably a good place to go for a big group.

“Viva Barcelona!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

There are two of these restaurants, one in Zenith drive and one down in Umhlanga Rocks "village" . The top store is quieter, but both do amazing traditional Spanish pizza-and the bottom one does tapas too. Treat yourself to this new little delight! Great wine selection, vibey atmosphere and good unique food.
