This was been a favourite Durban restaurant of mine for many years but we had a disappointing meal this week. Bland boring tasteless penne pasta and stale inedible brownies. A need to improve the food to match the surroundings.
My husband and I picked Market for lunch based on a recommendation from friends, but also because we were going to be in that part of town.
The ambience is lovely, tucked away in a nook that’s casually but very carefully designed. It’s a popular...spot for gatherings, as there was a baby shower and a bridal shower happening at the same time, and other groups enjoying laughter, drinks, and food.
Our dishes were worth the wait (because it was quite a wait), but oh so delicious. We loved the flavors and the presentation; portion sizes were just right too.
The service wasn’t the best, but the vibe and the food may have made up for that a bit. If they fix the lack of attentiveness of their team, they just might earn more stars.More
I had to meet somebody for a business lunch in the area. Was pleasantly surprised with the hidden restaurant. Very friendly waiter and service! He suggested fishcakes with salad, a bit overpriced for what we ate. But overall pleasant.
I read that this restaurant was under new management and that they had a luxe band playing on Friday evening. So we arrived pretty early expecting it to be busy, it was not. We were seated and the new owners were visible and introduced themselves,...sharing some of the ideas they have for this little gem of a restaurant. The ambience was enhanced by the fairy lights. Our was friend and very attentive, thank you Taz! The sirloin steak was enjoyed by my husband, cooked exactly as likes it. The chips were actual potatoes, not that frozen stuff. I opted for slow roast belly pork with seasonal vegetables, the pork was good but I was disappointed with the seasonal vegetables of peppers and celery stalks. The live band was the attraction so if they keep this going we will be back.More
Been 5years since last came to Africa and was introduced to the Market by a Friend in London he said if i ever go been to south Africa must try the Market. Sunday with my friends from America had a fabulous evening the food was...amazing out if this world. Didnt have the specials but the Waiter mihle and Manager a Gentleman made us feel at home . Manager checked on us regularly and was so nice and friendly warm. The Market Rest is the Best i have been to in Africa
Keep up the good serviceMore
The food is exceptional. However we were very unfortunate to have a table of about 12 inconsiderate customers who made so much noise, screaming rather than speaking, shrieking rather than laughing, so raucously it made our ears ring, ; we could not have a conversation...at our table and had to leave before looking at the dessert menu! Management should have exerted some control . These uncouth customers would have been thrown out of any restaurant worldwide!!! Suggest you go on a sunny day so you can sit outside!More
