A stunning coastal city with a significant manufacturing industry, Durban is often overshadowed by Johannesburg and Cape Town. This city, however, exudes a vibrant creative energy, evident from its tantalizing restaurant scene. Here’s our guide to some of its best restaurants.
No other restaurant in Durban displays this coastal city’s beauty quite like Roma Revolving. The restaurant has joined the ranks of one of the world’s few rotating dining experiences and sits 32 stories above the ground, offering guests unforgettable panoramic views. Gino’s Sky Bar then takes this experience to the next level, allowing visitors onto the roof for delicious cocktails under the stars. The menu specializes in Italian cuisine and includes delicate continental dishes, as well as serving seafood and fresh game plates.
The luxurious hotel The Oyster Box is home to several great dining experiences and The Grill Room stands as one of the best in Durban. Proud of providing ‘true fine dining’, their menu focuses on freshly caught seafood and perfectly cooked meats, while their wine list features both fantastic local and international wines. The hotel’s Ocean Terrace offers another iconic setting, overlooking the ocean and serving delicious Indian curries and authentically cooked pizzas.
