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.

We celebrated a birthday lunch and it was excellent from arrival to departure. The ambience was wonderful, the service was top class, the food out of this world with a special birthday desert with a candle! Altogether a delightful and memorable day at a very...special place. Thank you Spice. We will be back.More

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.

A most delightful lunch at this special venue this past week. It was the perfect combination of a delicious meal, friendly and professional service, a wonderful view and a great ambience. It is my second visit to Spice at this venue and it keeps getting...better. A mere 14 minutes from King Shaka International Airport makes this a must-do in Durbs. Our waiters (two brothers) were attentive and welcoming and the Manager/ Owner (who's name I sadly did not ask for) was accommodating and gracious from the time we arrived until we left. Thank you for a memorable afternoon.More

4 guests all had a very good meal. A variety of salads were ordered as a starter which were all delicious. The only complaint being that the salads were too large. Maybe half portions could be on offer? The main course of duck was lightly...over cooked but tasty. The cabbage served with the duck was an excellent compliment. The other guests were happy with their fillets as well. Desserts were delicious and size portion excellent. Some food and wine items were not available which is forgivable as we have just come out of another Covid lockdown. Spice’s Covid protocols are really good and in my opinion, is a safe venue to have a meal.More

This restaurant was recommended by my cousin as we were staying in Westbrook. What an amazing experience. My wife and I arrived without a reservation but they were able to accommodate us. Definitely need to remember a reservation as they are busy. What an amazing...view to eat watching the ocean. Not recommended for small children. The menu is a wonderful selection with amazing flavours. My wife and I had the flamboyant fish and chips. On par with the best fish and chips I have ever eaten. If one didn’t know about this place you would not know it is there. I will most certainly be going back before we travel to Johannesburg. Keep it up. In today’s times it is hard finding a gem.More
