“Relaxed atmosphere, fun vibe and excellent food!”
Reviewed August 22, 2014 via mobile

I invited some friends who were up from Cape Town - it was a Thursday night and the pub/restaurant was busy - we started by ordering a tasting platter of beer (great for someone who doesn't know the beers and wants to try a variety) - the service was excellent - we secured a table at the window but wanted to sit at the bar for our first round - no problem - 'your table is being held for you'. Our waiter recommended their burgers and the ribs - so that was what we ordered - I don't know how the burger was as I didn't ask, but the ribs were fantastic!! When the dinner ended the owner, Sean, came over to say hello and chat. My friends loved the evening and particularly enjoyed the mixed bar/restaurant vibe, commenting repeatedly about the relaxed friendly vibe. Highly recommended!

“Best spot in Durban!”
Reviewed August 19, 2014 via mobile

Never leave Durban without visiting Unity bar & restaurant!! Always a winner.. Great service, excellent food, value for money, owner managed, and a wide variety of craft beers and ciders to choose from.. Even a Unity bar beer tasting board (THAT Brewing Co.) Well done as usual. Thanks again to Sean and his team for the great weekend..

“A Fun place for Lunch ( & of course Dinner )”
Reviewed August 13, 2014

We went to Unity for lunch after going to a nearby Saturday Bazaar. The place was quite full. The food was served quickly; the food was tasty and looked appealing. The service was equally fast and the staff there courteous. There is an impressive Wine list to choose from. Very much a pub atmosphere; the place is lively. Parking space is a bit tight.

“Good vibe for drinks and gastro-pub type meals”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

Great vibe, for after work drinks or catch up with mates. Noisy and friendly. Food is a tad expensive, but tasty R1000 for 4 of us, including starters and a bottle of wine.. Waiters are average, they know the menu but I wouldn't say 100% service (we ordered a few drinks that simply didn't arrive). Laid back but trendy. I'd definitely go back, one of the better places to hang out in Durban.

“Great food!”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

You can tell that an awesome qualified chef works at Unity as the food has the finesse which I am tracking in Durban.
Food is delicious :)
Prices are a bit high, but the vibe is good.
Definitely one of my top choices when going out to eat. You have officially superseded Olive and Oil in Glenwood, whose portions have become pathetic and their food lacks finesse.
Love Unity :)
