Despite the review I read I decided to decide for myself and glad that I did as I found the food good , not the best ever, but better than there reviews I had read. I had the duck salad followed by the prawns of which there were plenty. Service was attentive and discreet. Not cheap meal and maybe that is its downfall

I am a regular at the Beverley Hills because they get so many things right, and when there is the occasional niggle it is sorted out promptly. Great view, phenomenal service and consistently good food. Keep it guys.

My wife and I have always considered the Sugar Club to be a very special spot to enjoy a night out. The seaside setting has to be the best in Durban and the service from the highly trained staff is always a cut above. On our last visit we were very dissappointed at the quality of the meals. My steak was bland and rather tough - not the quality of cut or preparation one would consider to be 5 star. My wife's pork belly was piping hot on the outside and fridge temperature on the inside? When I complained they offered to warm the dish, I said this was not good enough and that it needed to be re-done properly from scratch. When it was eventually returned to us, it was the same pork belly which had been re-heated, presented with fresh veggies. The pork was now hot but extremely tough and dry. For an establishment of this quality, and given the prices demanded, this is simply not good enough!

We stopped at the Beverly Hills Hotel as it was recommended as a good place to have food and take in a nice view of the ocean. The location was indeed quite good, but most of the stuff we ordered was average - my mojito had far too much packed ice and I could barely reach the drink, my lamb cutlets were ordered well done but were not, my friend's tagliatelle was bit squishy.
