Lovely little restaurant overlooking the main beach Westbrook serving authentic Durban curry. My chicken curry (I like it hot) was packed with flavor and served with both rice and roti. Portion was generous.

This was a great find, six of has lunch and everyone raved about their meals. The menu is small but great care has been taken with each dish. The owner, Russell obviously takes great pride in every aspect of his business. The calamari starter, lamb...curry and home made cheese cake were the standout dishes for us. The cheesecake may have taken the day. The view is spectacular, perhaps the best in Durban, making this place a "must', especially on a cracker day. This is definitely worth the 15 min drive guys, you won't regret it.More

We were there for my husband's birthday. The ambience, food, staff and service was amazing. To top of a fantastic lunch we spotted a whale, which added to the whole amazing experience.

We had lunch yesterday and waited 1.5 hours for our meal. The waiter didnt assist. The worst was that the owner never once stepped outside the covered area to see if any guests were not receiving attantion. No scanning by the owner at all ....One would expect that an owner would not be so lazy or careless, as to never even walk around to see if all is ok during meal times. Very poor.More

Went in for tantalising cocktails. But stayed on after viewing the menu. A wonderfully relaxed atmosphere without any compromise on quality, quantity or service. Difficult to make a menu choice as everything sounded delicious. Settled for the Tamarind Fish Curry. And was not disappointed.

Incredibly great food. So delicious! The staff was friendly and attentive. The owners really cared about the happiness of the guests and if we would have stayed longer in this area we would have come a 3rd time. Do not miss out coming to here....It‘s worth it!More

A favourite restaurant on the KZN north coast, half the reason we travel there. The prawn, courgette & mushroom pasta is just awesome, as are the spicy prawn tempura started, my favourites. Prawn curry is just as good or the Barney’s seafood bake. And a...view as well. Awesome hosts just top it all off. Thanks and hope to see you in a few weeks’ time.More

Perfect setting for a long lazy lunch. Menu is small but carefully planned and the ingredients whilst really not resonating with the concept are surprising so well incorporated into the plates that you wonder how the dish was ever conceived without them. Well done to...the chefMore

Anyone who visits Umhlanga or the Dolphin Coast without dining at Spice is guilty of high culinary crimes. There is not an item on its lunch or dinner menus that is not exquisite. To miss this experience is to miss one of the culinary highlights...of life!More

Even though we could only do takeaway, the service is great and the food is scrumptious. Great find along the beach.
