“Food is nice, drinks are cheap.”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Good atmosphere, food was nice and drinks are reasonably priced. The waitress was friendly and kept bringing are drinks to us outside quite fast even though it was a very busy Friday night.
Will defiantly go back next time I am in Durban.

“Always fun and the food is surprisingly good!”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

A great after work, after rugby, after anything drinks spot. Don't forget to try out the menu as the food is good. Can be a bit noisy but that's just because everyone is having so much fun!

“Quick bite but more of a bar”

Above average quality at an good price, the service was good too.
Its pub fare with burgers nachos and the like. The bar is big and popular and i would imagine gets very busy over weekends.

“It's still one of Durban's best drinking holes for a reason...”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

because people still go and drink there. Billy's is all about a great vibe and crowd. It's best asset... the big bar and late nights.
