“Summer Perfection”

Surf Riders Food Shack

Certificate of Excellence
Restaurant details
Reviewed 15 March 2018

Popped in late (4:30pm) on typical hot, humid and muggy Durban afternoon primarily for a cold beer and ended up having a quick bite to eat which I did not regret.
The location is great, just a few steps from the beach with views out to sea and also of the promenade used by runners, walkers and cyclists etc.
Service was friendly (as always) and efficient and they squeezed in a food order at around 5pm even though the kitchen was about to close.
Beer was cold and good (local craft brew by S43) and the food (poke bowl) was amazing and perfect for a hot afternoon.
I will be back....SOON.

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
