We had ostrich, beef filet, prawns and chocolate mousse. Everything was very good. The staff was friendly - we had a wonderful evening!

“Good but not the best given "reputation"”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Recently ate at the restaurant in September 2012. Food was not up to scratch given all the plaudits this restaurant normally receives. I had the homemade roasted butternut squash ravioli as a starter and it was awesome but my partner had the crispy fried calamari and it was average. both mains of crispy roasted free range duck and a chicken dish were very average and so were the desserts of vanilla bean creme brulee and chocolate torte. Nearby Green Mango serves a better duck main and Marco Paulo's desserts are much better

“Superb food in lovely, unpretentious Bistro.”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

Three of us went on a busy Friday evening. We were seated quickly and offered a drink to help ease selection from an impressive menu. The food we ordered was all very, very good (3 different mains) and after eating, I suspect that whatever you chose, it would be good. Wine choice was fine, nothing to OTT. The best thing however, is the casual but yet smart atmoshpere the place portrays. The food is worthy of far more pretentious settings, but I reckon that’s the secret of this place and why (as I write this) the place is rated #1 in Durban. Will definitely visit when next in Durban.

“Superb food”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

I may not have the greatest atmosphere, looking onto the car park behind the Avonmore Centre, but the food and service more than make up for it. Best duck ever, and the ginger butternut sealed the deal.
