The fillet steak is perfect and the portions ample. The grilled hake is very good and so is the chicken fillets. They have good mocktails. Prices are steep. No wifi in the restaurant. Good treat restaurant. Conveniently located.

I had heard alot about Casablanca & always wished to try it out on my next trip to Durban. I went in there with high expectations. What I didn't expect was for them to meet my expectations! Within minutes we were seated by the friendly staff. Food was served literally 10mins after ordering, which I really did not expect. Never... More

A nice family restaurant, food has always been good, well seasoned and tasty. They have a good selection. Service is okay, nothing to rave about.

Lemon & Herb Prawns and Portuguese style chicken will bring you back all the time... Don't forget the delectable garlic butter rolls and their special passion cocktail... That's now real Finger Lickin Good...

Food was amazing but the staff was bit stern and clumsy as well as many signs around the establishment telling patrons what to do and how to do it. Found that a bit narrow minded approach for a commercial establishment. Maybe they are attracting the childish crowd so far that needs instructions on how to behave!!! Food gets 10/10 though.

A Seafood and Grill restaurant that caters for an above average pallet. The menu serves individual and large families. The portions are for one person. It is centrally located and tables must be reserved during holidays and weekends. Prices are reasonable and this restaurant should be tried when in the area. I rate it 3.8/5

What can I say about my dining experience here? It was nothing short of wonderful. It was a staff Christmas function for 30 people. They gave us a private room upstairs, with waitrons dedicated to us only. Our dilemma was how to keep all 30 people to stick to our budget of R230 p.p. Casablanca came to the party. They... More

We have been lured to this restaurant by previous rather ecstactic comments. Alas the only superlatives that could apply to this place are coldest, most impersonal and very unlicensed... the last place where we expected to be for a family dinner on weekend in Durban. Food is acceptable but this is not the most important we were looking for.

Casablanca has got to be my favorite seafood restaurant in durban. The food is totally delicious and not so creamy and heavy. The vegetables are devine as well as the cheesy garlic roll. Great place for family with amazing staff!
