Disappointing lunch today - this restaurant looks like it’s set up for fine dining but we didn’t get that experience. My duck was served cold. The breast pieces were very pink and would have been good if it was at least warm. The leg was way over cooked with soft gelatinous skin. This should have been crispy (and hot). In the description there should have been almonds but I couldn’t find any. The Falklands Calamari was also cold. My wife’s Prawn salad was “meh”. I called our waiter (who was very attentive) and told him and asked him specifically to inform management. Nobody came near us so the opportunity to salvage a customer was lost. Regrettably this was reflected in the tip when wasn’t his fault.

Had an wonderful time. The service and hosting was great. The food was so delish. Well done to Thulani, Mandla and the Head Chef who went out of his way to make me an awesome vegan starter and main meal. Highly recommend

Brilliant night out!! I’d called in and made a reservation for two - date night. The setup was so beautiful! The service was absolutely impeccable! And the food was REALLY delicious with generous portions. Definitely one of the best restaurants I’ve been to in Durban. Highly recommended!

...1st time visiting this restaurant. Often in the area and always driving pass this venue so we decided to try it out. Garlic foccocia with honey glazed onions were so delicious 😋. Calamri wasn't done to my liking...did not like it at all. Steaks were absolutely soft soft soft. I like mine burnt and super well done and it was still done brilliantly. Sandile was our waiter...what an amazing lad. So friendly and always attentive! We will be back...
