Has to be the best lunch special in Umhlanga R59 with a large glass of wine. What more does one need. Also, has the best views of the shoreline in Durban. Highly recommended. Thanks Des, great service...

Adjacent to the Holiday Inn Express, which doesn't offer meals beyond breakfast. Despite being quite busy, meals came out quickly and were of good quality. Staff seemed quite focused and highly experienced.

Went for a business dinner. Steak was reasonable without being top drawer. So a safe bet without being special.

The food is amazing. But you have to wait for a long time for the food to be served. But the wait is absolutely worth it!

Excellent food...I had the cajun calamari. Just one negative. The milkshakes were awful...made with cheap ice-cream and over-priced in my opinion. But a lovely atmosphere

Had dinner here on my first night in Umhlanga. The waiter was a bit overwhelmed with the number of tables he had and got a little confused with the orders initially. I had the ribs and wings combo which was a decent portion and totally...More

Dropped in for a business lunch with a colleague. Not particularly easy to find it via the front of the Holiday Inn but nevertheless an enjoyable experience. Service snappy and food healthy and tasty. Will drop in again.
