We had dinner at Market and were treated extremely well by everyone at the restaurant. They were all friendly and attentive, and provided useful insight on the dishes on and off the menu. The food was very good and they had a nice selection if craft beers and wines, about which they, too, had useful information. We even enjoyed the... More

Oh wow! I adore Market. I have eaten lunch here a few times and always try to take visitors to see this special 'hole in the wall' so that we can impress them, not just with the sea, but with Durban's ability to impress on the culinary stage. The outdoor and indoor areas are fab. The lamb burgers stupendously great... More

Didn't know what expect as it was my first visit. I will be sure to go again. The food was amazing and the service was superb. The vibe was so chilled, I really enjoyed being there and would recommend it to anyone.

This is a popular little eatery set in a quiet off road courtyard under shady trees. The menu is varied and quite extensive. I have only visited at lunch time, when it is always packed, the vibe is good and the service good and cheerful. The food is always well presented, portions moderate in size, and flavoursome.

A lovely setting in the outdoors in the middle of town without a hint of that with trees overhead and the gurgle of water from the nearby fountain. Service was attentive and professional with a owner on site that makes one feel like he's your host in his home. Cuisine is interesting and presentation great. Between us we had a... More

I have been to Market restaurant twice now. I really love the food (I can highly recommend the duck) and the service is the best I ever experienced in Durban! Also the ambience is very nice. You should try to sit outside, in the evening the lights are very beautiful. I will return definitely!

A great place for a romantic dinner or supper with friends. High quality and tasty food. The only let down is the service can sometimes be a little slow.

Excellent atmosphere for friends and family or even a work function. Food is well worth every cent, the shop adjoining the restaurant really adds a wonderful touch to the whole experience. I have been here several times and have never been disappointed save for when the waiters are working at a slower pace than I'd like.

Sitting outside is amazing as you are surrounded by fairy lights and pretty decor. The food was great. Variety of food on the menu. Definitely something to suit everyone.
