The Oyster Box was booked as a Mother's Day treat during our visit to Umhlanga. It was a wonderful day and when the staff heard that it was Mothering Sunday in the UK then we were spoilt. We were treated to a glass of champagne, specially decorated cupcakes and even a gift. Their afternoon tea was exceptional, too deliciour to describe, you just have to go.

If you are looking for class then you have chosen the right restaurant in Durban. The food was excellent. I could not find any faults. Great and friendly service and as for the executive chef, Mr Kevin Joseph....top marks! The man is super friendly with all his clientele and makes you feel at home!

The ambience is superb and you know you in a place of class, style, elegance and romance all in one!

If you are aiming to charm the love of your life......then the Oyster Box is the place for you!

Well worth every penny spent! I will be going back! For me top restaurant in KZN!

This was one of the better meals we have had as of late. It was better than anything we had in the UAE and we went to some of the best it had to offer. We got the prawn started and pulled pork for appetizers with the pork being the better of the two. Also, we had the ravioli and pork offering for the main and both played out well with the pork being the star. The deserts were also both nice and had great coffee/espresso compliments. The wine selection was also nice and we were guided to a great Chardonnay by Jordan (winery not person). The service and atmosphere were also both good as there was a live band playing. Not much went wrong with the food or service so it is hard not to go with a 5 as it was all quite good/refined.

Booking and reception was excellent and warm. Setting lovely and up market. Dress code allows for dressing up or down (down seems to be the preferred South African way). At the start Service was brisk and sharp. As the restaurant filled up service slowed down and we had to decant dour own champagne. The crayfish thermidor was not the best - far too much mushrooms and my pork belly a touch tasteless and bottom over cooked. Was a lovely evening and enjoyed it but would not rush back.

As one would expect from anything associated with the Oyster Box Hotel ,The Grill Room serves excellent food and has a very comprehensive wine list. The ambiance is very good and the staff efficient, attentive and the new sommelier very knowledgeable. The hors d'oeuvres trolly is not to be missed with a superb selection of over twenty starters.
The Grill Room is as good as one would find in both London and Paris.
