Cafe's still got it... great combinations, good wine and excellent (unrivalled) service. Yes, it is a bit pricey, but it's most certainly worth it!

This usually has outstanding food, but every now and then you get an average dish. Great service, lovely ambience.

Dining out is often fraught with huge platters of food dumped in front of you - very off putting to say the least. Not at Cafe 1999, the concept being the choice a half portion or a larger portion. What a great idea backed by some awesome cooking preparation. The couple we dined with are often ribbed about how many shares they have in Cafe 1999 and they travel from Salt Rock on a regular basis to sample the gourmet delights. Makes you think? For a restaurant that litlary seats you in the car park with no sceanic views and problem parking it still pulls them in! It is all about the food! Durbs still has some great restaurants and this is one of them.
