  • The ambiance was amazing however the food did not meet expectation in the least and even more so when the bill arrived. Wouldn't return.

  • We had a fabulous experience at 9th Avenue Bistro when we went to try the First Thursdays tasting menu in August. The location itself is nothing overwhelmingly special as it’s in a small shopping centre , and the decor inside is simple and sparse, however this is made up for by the fabulous food, fantastic wine and knowledgeable waiters. Highlights of the meal included a hearty black bean soup with a beautifully contrasting sweet corn ice cream, and the black garlic aïoli that accompanied the potato, carrot and artichoke gratin was absolutely sublime. The meal was rounded off with a gorgeous dessert, the star of the show being a silky-smooth and beautifully tart lemon poppyseed ice cream. The waiters were very clued-up on all the menu items, and even where individual items had been sourced from. They were attentive and charming, and added to the fine-dining experience.

  • The passion the people at 9th Avenue Bistro have for what they do is palpable. Though the setting/ isn't too appealing, you are quickly absorbed into all the tastes/dish presentations and wines on offer. Treat yourself on a special occasion!

  • I've always had good experiences at 9th. I had the best prawn rissoto here. Definitely a good pick for a fancy celebratory dinner. I personally don't like the dimmed lighting, which I suppose most people do enjoy, but other than that, an amazing pick!

  • We tried the 6 course tasting menu for the first time. What an amazing gustatory experience. Definitely the best in Durban. I look forward to seeing this gem of a restaurant making the Eat Out awards nominees for best restaurant. Can't wait to return.

  • 9th is without question my favourite restaurant. Fantastic food and service, wonderful wines and an elegant atmosphere. Good to see Graham back in the kitchen and I can't wait for my next tasting menu... later this evening!!! It's great to see that restaurants are popping up and attempting to bring variety to an industry that is increasingly dominated by large chains, but 9th remains the benchmark for these new players in terms of consistency, quality, innovation and excellence. Super excited for this evening!!
