Cafe Fish has been our first choice restaurant for lunch every time we visit Durban - about once a month. The food is consistently great - fresh, well presented and tasty - the staff and management friendly and efficient. On reading 'mobilelisa's' review all I could think of was that they were at a different restaurant. Then I looked at the date of her visit! The British and Irish Lions were in town that week and what 'mobilelisa' might not have known was that their fans managed to drink Durban dry!! I have no doubt that Cafe Fish was packed to the rafters with fans and friends, and had been all week -all having a good time. Although there is seldom any excuse for running out of food and drink, sometimes, when one is taken by surprise, this happens. So - next time you're in Durban - give Cafe Fish a try.

Our hotel recommended Cafe Fish for dinner. We arrived for our 8pm reservation, were informed that nearly all the wine had run out & a photocopied list of what was remaining was handed to us. We quickly ordered our food, to be told that several items including the oysters had also run out (surprising being a seafood restaurant in the harbour!) After drinking one bottle of wine, we went to re-order, only to be told it had been the last one. Our starter eventually arrived almost 2 hours after we did. At the end of the meal we politely told the manageress that the speed of service was unreasonable & pointed out that so many things had run out including most of the wine. She was quite rude and dismissive and told us that everyone else had enjoyed a good meal and experienced no problems and hoped we would come back again!!! Given that we overheard every other departing table complaining on their way out, the manageress was either lying or deluded!! This said, the food when it eventually came was very good.

Thank mobilelisa
