This unpretentious Mozambican/Portuguese eatery just does not fail to please, time and again. Most patrons seem to be regulars and are treated almost as family by the friendly and efficient serving staff. The hearty food is consistently excellent, prices are very reasonable and the place is always abuzz. Make sure to make reservations in advance as it is always full.

I visited Neo Cafe on the recommendation of my brother who lives in Durban and while the place looks ordinary from the outside the food is very tasty, and John assisted us very ably indeed! The place has the potential to be quite rowdy, depending on the patrons. We initially couldn't hear ourselves think while a jovial bunch of men were vocally monopolising the place. When they left our ears stopped bleeding. ;-)

Firstly getting a booking for this restaurant is a mission, if you lucky to get a table, a must try is the Peri-Peri Chicken, Prawns are worth a try as well. Seating is very basic, you'll mainly find locals and regulars at this venue. Service needs to be tweaked, as waitrons act as if they doing you a favour. Barring the service, food is great...

Enjoyed the best peri-peri chicken that I have eaten anywhere, hence the "Very Good" food rating. Terrific service by a lady, who advised very constructively on the menu. As warned by others, the place gets really busy, but this does not seem to affect service delivery from the kitchen. Prawns and salad were rather average, as were some of the starters. The restaurant has a fun vibe to it, one where rolling up one's sleeves and tucking in is all part of the experience - even for a business meal. Go there for the chicken!

This is my favourite eating place in Durban. Unpretentious but delicious food - seafood and peri peri chicken are great - with great staff. A winner with well informed locals!
