“Simply the best”
Reviewed August 27, 2014

This owner run restaurant is an excellent example of simplicity and poetry in motion - a very clean cut menu and decor keeps the focus on the impecabble service and lip smacking dishes that are churned out...the pork belly is the best there is in Durban - period!!!
Love the orchids on the wall.

“Our favourite restaurant in Durban”
Reviewed August 15, 2014

Been here a three times in the last few months, and every time the food has been excellent. The attention to detail in the presentation, the flavours and the uniqueness of the dish makes for a special experience. The menu is smallish, but still offers sufficient variety. Jonathan makes an effort to make everyone feel welcome, the service is excellent.

I really enjoyed their signature dish - the pork belly. Its made very differently, so don't expect crispy crackling. Just one small thing, it comes with a baked potatoe, and that somehow doesn't work for me.

The bread and butter is to die for. You won't find better anywhere. Just a tip: Order it immediately when they clear your table after mains, as it takes nearly 40min to make - and it is freshly made!!

“Still good but not excellent”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

There is no doubt Quo is the best restaurant in the Hillcrest Kloof area, but this time we were happy but not ecstatic. Service is always excellent, wine list very good, food imaginative, but this time it just didn't click. However i will go back! In the past it has always been excellent, so maybe just a average night.

“Ok”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

Moving to larger premises has made quo very minimalistic.the orchids do not have an impact on the eye nor does the food! Pork Belly was rather like pulled Pork ready for a Sarmie No crispy crackling no apple sauce but a rather uninspiring tomato salsa and a baked potato ,mash would have been a better bet! The dessert nougat with 2chocolate dips was very good as was the ice cream!
