The Spectacular views and helpful staff are the main attractions and what brought me back for a visit. We were greeted warmly and our waiter was always on hand. The highlight of my previous visit was the devine Prawn curry,sadly that is no longer on the menu. The menu is now significantly limited. We ordered the fish and roast lamb... More

As a family we have visited the Roma Revolving Restaurant probably on an annual basis, normally when we want to give a visitor from out of town a good view of the city. It is really enjoyable in summer when it is still light at the start of your evening, progressing to the night city lights later on in the... More

A really good evening out with friends. The menu is varied. The Maitre D, Gino is very attentive and the food is superb. Considering all of the above, the prices are good too. Would highly recommend a visit especially if entertaining guests from out of town. Will visit again.

The Roma has deteriorated terribly! It has always been such a wonderful place to have a special dinner, but not now. It has new owners, who have shoved up the prices, giving you less for it, and the service was terrible. The waiters are great, but they are not allowed to take your order. We arrived at 7 at our...

I love revolving restaurants so Roma was a 'must' during my brief stay in Durban. Five of us had reserved a table a few days previously although when we arrived we had to wait in the bar and we had actually ordered a second drink by the time we were seated. Then there was a long wait to place our... More

We tried to book for a dinner on the longweekend, but they were fully booked. So we had booked for Saturday lunch. We really enjoyed the views of the harbour and the rest of Durban from above and the food was very tasty, friendly service and the dessert trolley was a highlight!! Our family view this as a real treat... More

Love the vibe, the people, the food! The manager is amazing, he makes you feel like you've just arrived home! The food is out of this world. Even the simplest pasta dishes get turned into something heavenly by these talented chefs. The Sky Bar is awesome and the revolving restaurant with its ever-changing views is something for the senses. An... More

The focus is good. The service is good. The novelty of the revolving restaurant is fun. The views are spectacular. The only thing that lets it down is the location

We had a great dining experience. Spectacular food and service. Good options for a vegetarian and the desert trolley is always a treat. Well worth a visit.

This is definitely the best scenery in Durban. Staff members were brilliant, being helpful yet not hovering over guests. It doesn't get much better than chatting with friends while overseeing the harbour and being in the comfort of great food. I ordered the crocodile, being the risk indulgent that I am. It was plated beautifully, with generous portion size. The... More
