Since you arrive you feel very well taken care of, food and wine are just out of this world. Thanks to Phoebe and the chef we had the best meal in Durban

It was my birthday and I don't even have words to describe how I enjoyed my brunch there. The food was super delicious and mouthwatering.

Fantastic venue , great service and amazing food. The views of the harbour are exceptional and over all a very enjoyable afternoon. The bar upstairs seemed busy.

It was a lovely evening. Our server was absolutely on point. The views are the die for but the food was a little bit disappointing. It looked beautiful but lacked seasoning. I found the food did not match the prices.

Great location, smart, and comfortable. Excellent food. Service was good, but the food (beautifully prepared) did take a while to come out. Getting plain old tap water was challenging! Will definitely try this again.

The venue boasts a stunning interior, with tasteful decorations and an upscale ambiance that sets the stage for a special outing. However, the service left something to be desired – it lacked the attentiveness and promptness one might expect from such a high-end establishment. The...menu was impressively varied in terms of culinary offerings, catering to a wide range of tastes and dietary preferences. Unfortunately, while presented beautifully, the food itself did not live up to its visual promise. The flavours were underwhelming and lacked the refinement I anticipated, making the dishes feel very average in taste. Despite these drawbacks, the venue's tranquil and sophisticated atmosphere makes it a potentially good choice for couples seeking a serene and quality time together.More

I was looking forward to dining here as I had been told wonders about the place. Nice setting and good ambiance. Service very professional. Good cocktails. However, I was not impressed by the food. Oysters were good but fillet was greasy and tough. My piece...of fish was nice but more panko than tempura (as menu stated).More

The restaurant is excellent. offers very sophisticated food at very affordable prices. shame about the service which is absolutely not up to par. I asked the waitress who served us if she knew where the Indian neighborhood was. since she didn't seem to understand, I...asked her, the neighborhood where the Indians live. she pretended not to understand and then she walked back telling my son that I was rude. but that this was not a problem as many people are rude. it was unacceptable, given that she then asked where we were from and, upon replying that we were Italian, she nodded as if to say... ah now I understand!!!! I felt very uncomfortable in front of this aggressive person. the excellent lunch took a back seat. I would have liked not to leave any tip but it had already been included in the bill. A very bad day.More
