A chilled atmosphere in a quiet area. If you didn't know about it you are missing out. Lovely food. Beautifully presented and good value for money.

We took a family member, who had been through a recent traumatic experience, and we watched as she relaxed in the peaceful atmosphere of this awesome venue. As always the staff are attentive, giving such thoughtful attention to an elderly member of our group. The menu selection is varied enough for all tastes. The food is fresh and well prepared....

The food is prepared well, good menu, not too extensive but caters for all needs. The fish cakes are lovely. We also had a work meeting at their venue once. It was nicely received. Good food and good facility to do a powerpoint presentation for a light dinner meeting.

My husband and I visited Market on our Wedding Anniversary and it was perfectly romantic. The fairy lights around the fountain, the music and the excellent service reminded us of our honeymoon in Mauritius. The meals were cooked to perfection and well balanced. The techniques used to prepare the meals were of the Master Chef standard. Well done Market and... More

We had a wedding at The Market this past weekend and it was a wonderful experience. The courtyard was transformed into what looked like fairyland. Generally weddings have buffets but here the dinner was served at the tables to guests:2-3 choices of starters, main and desserts : and every single course was amazing. The final icing on the cake was... More

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
