We popped in at Atasca on the off chance that they had a table available for six people on a Saturday night! The staff were so helpful and accommodating and we were seated within 10 minutes. Our service was outstanding and food was delicious! What a great experience. Thank you Mel and zavs for a great evening.

We asked him to give us 5 minutes to sit down and then come for our drinks order. Our food was dreadful, swimming in grease and butter -... More

Compliments to the management for the excellent service rendered by both staff members Melanie and Savvos . They go beyond the call of duty to ensure the patrons are happy & satisfied at all times . They have a great menu - the best Portuguese meal in Durban ! Well done guys !

A great very popular restaurant. Great food and service. However no menu available on the website. A word of advice- be prepared for a noisy meal if placed in the bar. Will you see us again. Sure.
