I love the waiters here. They really seem to enjoy what they do and when they engage with customers they are seem genuinely interested in making sure the patrons have a good time. Their knowledge of the menu is good and they seem capable of being able to make good recommendations from drinks to food items. The food is consistently good and reasonably priced. Primi Polo remains one of my favourite restaurants in the Hillcrest area.

When the franchise first appeared in Hillcrest, we ate there at least twice a month.

Good food, well presented, average service. Last week our experience was less enthralling... I had the fillet steak (only because they were sold out of lamb chops (at 6pm ??)). The fillet was just fine. The combo pepper/mushroom/mustard sauce was poor. Offer me ONE flavour not a mishmash. Also the mash it was served on was very poor. Horrible colour, no flavour. The side order of vegetables was stone cold and 90% courgette. Waste of money.

Had to work on to find table service, get drinks topped up etc.. And all this with what looked to be 3 Front of House managers/ess on duty... too many cooks spoil the broth?

This is a great setting to take a few friends for dinner (or just your spouse for a date.). The menu is varied and interesting, the service excellent.

We were a bit taken aback by the surrounds, it felt a bit like an applebees. However the food the was really great across the board, from the pizzas to the steaks and a nice tuna dish. I know its a chain, but its a good one.

On my occasional visits to Durban my favourite stop is Primi Polo Hillcrest. The service is excellent, the food is scrumptious and management staff very friendly and genuinely interested in their guests. Have had breakfasts, lunch and dinners and all wonderful.
