We visited, the Oyster Box during a family holiday from the UK, staying in Umhlanga. We booked for afternoon tea with our children (9 and 5yrs) and in-laws from Durban. Wow - what a place - the Oyster box is like an old colonnial hotel, and the afternoon tea is amazing - such variety and quality of hot and cold savouries as well as a vast array of cakes and pastries. This is all self-service and in the setting makes it a special place for afternoon tea. Certainly worth making the effort of getting dressed up a little smarter for! Booking essential.
