I can say that here is the best seafood restaurant in Durban. Everything is tasteful. The most preferred food is grilled Queen Prawn. We also ordered Rock Cod(special regional fish), grilled Salmon, Fillet of Kingklip and Calamari. All of them were well cooked and delicious. I recommend everybody to order grilled Queen Prawn. Not expensive but good quality restaurant... Service... More

Not a great place and proof that long standing restaurants need a shake up new ones bring them. The food was very average and no great shakes. We had king prawns and a Fisherman platter for 1.

For a restaurant to have been in business with the same owners for 45 odd years, they have to be doing something right!! Not only that, some of the waitering staff have been with the business for over 35 years, so they also look after their staff, always a good sign! One of our highlights when visiting Durban is to...

I dine at the LP reasonably often and have never been disappointed in either their fare or their service. The staff are friendly and helpful and often display a keen sense of humour. Their oysters are superior to any others I 've had in Umhlanga even to more costly establishments within close proximity. I would recommend the LP as the... More

Great seafood at reasonable prices, ask for the prawn, its their specialty, great wine selection, If you don't like seafood there are other options and just as good!
