Great spot for breakfast or lunch after a long walk/ run/ swim or cycle on our beautiful beachfront. Staff were very accomodating and put tables together as we were a group of 12. Friendly waitrons, great coffee!! Many breakfast options - service was quick and food good. Food served on a piece of paper on a board - a hygienic option. Presentation very good. Good outdoor seating area with plenty umbrellas. Recommended.

Great spot for a nice meal after spending some time at the beach. Always packed with people...specially during the weekends. The eggs with salmon and avocado are a must have

A must do if visiting the beach front area.

Staff are friendly and the food is great. Specialties are their cocktails some of which are very different and the ice cream options are varied and the portions and taste is 100% value for money.

Highly recommend this terrific little place!

Great vibe, amazing coffee and you can’t beat the view!

Really great to see durban has a restaurant that shows off one of the city’s strengths our beach just seems to look even more incredible from a table at Surf riders, especially when you have the best Hawaiian poke to chow down on!

Excellent service and friendly staff keep it up

Had a lovely dining experience at Surf Riders today. The service was great- warm and efficient waitress. Seated immediately, meals arrived soon after placing the order.

The nachos are just delicious. Tender grilled chicken pieces with cheese sauce and melted cheese over proper nachos. Jalapeño slices sprinkled on top and 3 sides of sour cream, pineapple and gauc were served with the nachos. Very rich dish, utterly moreish.

The little one thorough enjoyed her kiddies pizza and ate all of it. The chicken burger has the option of replacing the buns with a side salad; this was an amazing dish. The chicken fillets were grilled with lemon and spices and the side salad was served in their signature cucumber wrap style, packed with fresh salad leaves, olives, feta, tomato, avo & onion. You don’t get salads this fresh, crunchy and well-dressed in most restaurants. I also had the famous sweet potato fries which were SCRUMPTIOUS. Best fries (including normal potato fries) that I’ve ever had. I also indulged a bit (hey, ‘tis the season) and ordered their cheese sauce on the side. The combo of tender chicken, fresh salad and then sweet potato chip dipped in cheese sauce was a sublime bite!

The food is amazing, the service brilliant and the perfect view of the ocean a few meters away doesn’t hurt either.
