“Nice staff and good atmosphere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

John Dorys in Durban South Africa is a great place to eat and enjoy the atmosphere. They have a play area for children that includes a trampoline and a plastic rock wall. The food is very nice and will arrive at about half an hour but the sushi has about 3 different varieties and none of which is vegetarian.

“Great fish & chips ...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

We brought my Aunt who was visiting from the UK to see the docks where the ships she had been watching from our balcony in Umhlanga come to unload & load their cargoes - Wilson's Wharf is a bustling place to see the action & lunch at John Dory was just what we needed - friendly staff & good food - what more could we want ...

“Pleasant suprise!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

I recently took a week off to spend some time at the coast with my family and stayed in Umlanga. We decide to take a drive to Durban and ended up at the Wilson wharf where I had previously taken a harbour cruise from. I must say that the Wharf is not really looking too good and I was not sure we would have a good time there but everybody was hunger so we ended up having lunch at John Dory's. What an absolute pleasure! We were welcomed warmly and our little boy was immediatly given a kiddies pack to settle him in and we where seated on the waters edge. The food was great, wine chilled perfectly and all the staff and Manager was atentive and friendly. If you are in the area stop in, you wont be dissapointed.
