Eating Out in Durban

Edit This
Durban is a real melting pot of influences: the African, European and Asian cuisines are all represented in the city. You can especially enjoy the Indian food, as Durban houses a large Indian population. All time favourites like curry’s, and vindaloos, but also many more subtle and surprising dishes. Or you can have a non-fattening snack at one of Durban’s trendy places, where people come not only to eat, but also to see and be seen. In short, Durban has a restaurant for every taste.

Roma Revolving

Edit This

One of the only revolving restaurants in the world, this restaurant serves delicious Italian food.  They also offer some more unusual dishes such as crocodile steak!

They have one of those old fashioned sweet carts which is filled with divine desserts.  By South African standards this restaurant is considered to be on the pricey side but I went out with 8 people, all drinking alcohol and paid around GBP£80 including the tip!!!

My family have been going to this restaurant for years - in fact the owner was my mum's first boyfriend!!

Grillroomcafe

Edit This

A laid-back, trendy spot with a varied menu, good wine list and excellent service. The food is fresh and tasty and even the toasted sandwiches offer interesting options. Tables spill on to the pavement and overlook the gardens of Mitchell Park. (Great place to people watch, too.)

AKA

Edit This

A very versatile place - a leisurely breakfast, a late-night cup of Lavazza coffee or three-course meal (and don't forget the small but well-selected wine list), they serve it all. Just about everything on the menu is available as a takeout as well. The diverse menu utilises unlikely combinations to delicious effect and covers everything from Bovril toast to sushi, from game bangers to soup.

Bargo

Edit This

The owners are after the contemporary, vibey crowd and have come up with the right formula. (The cowhide panels on the aluminium bar are particularly funky.) It's a great place to go with a group of friends but, seeing as the night gets progressively louder, don't expect to pop in late for an intimate meal with your beloved.
