Have been to Hemingways a few time since my last review. I have to say that it is obvious there is a change, definitely not for the better. The quality of the food served is still excellent, though something has happened with the flavours of...More

Wine by the glass was average - fairview la capra rose. Calamari tubes were great. Service was excellent but the creme brulee was a mess.

This used to be a great spot, sadly it's lost a lot of its spark. Limited menu, unfriendly staff and blandish food

Lovely restaurant for a relaxed evening with a glass of wine and chat. For Durban the wine list is above average and prices are reasonable. Service is quite good too but sadly I have yet to have a great meal there.

Great and tasty food. Excellent service. Steaks done to perfection and a very enjoyable experience. It is an old converted house, expect nothing fancy but it is a worthwhile experience.

I enjoyed eating there, but quite honestly the food was pretty average and out of the group I was in, at least half on the people thought it was a little expensive for what we got. No complaints about the service though.
