When we arrived the birthday girl received a small bottle of bubbling and a card. The food is excellent and daily specials is presented to us by the owner. It is a small intimate restaurant. You can take your own wine if they do not have it on their menu. We had been there every time we go down to... More

I've been going to Memories about once a year for 10 years and it has a special place in my heart as we have made lots of "memories" here. The food is consistently good and the service is excellent. Our last visit was spaced about three months after the one before that and I realised that the specials were 90%... More

This intimate restaurant is creatively themed and decorated with images of Movie Stars and Musicians from the 60’s and 70” and played movie- themed music throughout the evening. The staff was friendly and courteous and the menu on offer is small but provides a comprehensive assortment of dishes which caters for all tastes; and each dish being named after a... More

The food was good, tasty and well presented. However the smoking area is so closely connected to the non smoking section that it definitely spoiled it for me.

not so easy to find a place like that in toti area to eat, but here you have a very good acceuil from the proprietary. The place is little, very familial and calm. The food is good but one of the most problem if the waiting time is too long...

Memories is one of the very few restaurants that are still around after 15 years . Pam and her crew are always so innovative with the menu but ensure that the favorite favorites are kept on the menu.

The KZN south coast I not well known for fine dining, so I was pleasantly surprised about this restaurant. Not easy to find, located in an old building in a residential area. Decor was charming with 'Elvis' outside and Marilyn Monroe' inside. We didn't book but got the impression that they usually take bookings and that it can get busy.... More

The quality of the food surpasses a maybe a too formal approach of the waitresses. The owner/Manageress however make up for the approach of the waitresses. The preparation of the main courses and the tenderness of the vegetables are very good indeed. The roquefort sauce served with the sirloin steak is the best I ever tasted. Well worth a visit!
