    Very pleasant atmosphere, and well located in an up-and-coming district. Local beadwork, textiles, and art in several mediums. Good place for browsing, viewing, shopping, or just talking with the local artists.

    Thanks to the impeccable eye of its owner this gallery offers the finest array of original South African art on public display in Durban. She and her team are also world-class picture framers. Visitors are made to feel more than welcome at this charming venue in an old colonial quarter of the city. A must-visit for art-lovers.

    These artist have an incredible ability to bring the natural beauty out of the wood that they work with and turn them into usable masterpieces.

    Thanks to the indifference, stupidity, incompetence, venality, (choose one or more) of the Durban municipality, what was, a decade ago, a vibrant and popular venue for live performances and restaurants, The Bat Centre on the Esplanade, was allowed to fall into disrepair and oblivion. The building offered a splendid outlook to our harbour and the berthing tug boats immediately in front of the open balcony, on which celebrants shared their sun-downers and the chatter of the happy visitors.
    The Esplanade now houses shabbily maintained buildings and the open spaces swarm with hordes of wonga-addicts and the homeless.
    A very brave Sandile Ngcobo, experienced chef with a distinguished list of cooking successes in the past, has taken the risk and hopes to rehabilitate the restaurant section of The Bat Centre with his Cafe Çhidos (a Mexican echo, to remind him of his years feeding the American consulate in Durban, where his diners often called for this cuisine).
    His menu offers a selection of truly African, together with a choice of other dishes. Our party of eight thoroughly enjoyed servings of tender ox-cheek with African vegetables, Zulu-styled lamb chops, with putu and chakalaka veggies, an impressive fish and chip dish, and a truly memorable bean curry, done in Sandile's special way. Our shared Mexican starter of his nachos and magical combination of just the right spicy ingredients was the introduction to a pleasurable, contented dining experience, and his banana bread, apple and icecream sweet closed the meal satisfyingly.
    The prices are low, considering the high quality of the food, the service attentively special, and the view of the brightly-lit harbour, the tugs and the car-ferry, provided an omnipresent background.
    Parking is safe and free, security services for the harbour are right there. If a venture to bring back life to a part of Durban long-ignored can succeed, this restaurant deserves to be the magnet of the attraction.
