    When you talk of World Leading Restaurants in Durban. It has the Best Service, Best Food, Best Atmosphere. I had a 3 course meal on that evening & it was amazing done. This is a must visit when you in Durban. Booking is very Essential & you will never regret being at this restaurant.

    Classy, crispy, elegant with a touch of Cape cod with a African twist. And perfect for a romantic dinner or special occasion. Service is excellent and attentive. Food is in general very well executed and tasty. Of course the oysters are a safe choice here, as well as prawn cocktail and the trolley with hors d'oevres. Classic fish and meat mains are not so incentive, but good and hearty. Unfortunately our sirloin was a bit on the chewy side. Bea's cheescake is a dream, as well as honeycomb ice cream. Crepes Suzette is always a happening to watch happen. Wine list is good with some high quality wines. The menu could be a little more adventurous and innovative. But all in all a lovely place on a fantastic hotel.

    I was very pleased with my experience at the ocean terrace for Sunday lunch. From the professional and warm welcome of the hostess, friendly charm of the decor, punctual and pleasant service of the waiter, and not to forget the delicious food - my Sunday lunch was truly one to remember. the resturant could easily become 4 or 5 star shortly, just more attention on clean floors and presentation. Well done and I will surely be back and recommend the restaurant to friends and family!

    This review is for the Ocean Terrace - we had a lovely afternoon - beautiful view, stunning live music and a great ambiance. Our starters, my hubby had oysters which he thoroughly enjoyed. I had a Greek salad (at over R70 a pop) - greens left much to be desired, although the OBH salad dressing was nice. The mains, my hubby had prawns - he said it was average. I had the Natal prawn curry - DIVINE! We shared a dessert - chocolate brownies - it was stunning as well.The service was a problem on the particular afternoon, and our poor waiter kept on apologising profusely for the delays - sure it was a once-off hiccupWith two glasses of wine, a soft drink and two coffees, the bill came to R700 (without a tip) - worth the price if you include atmosphere
    Unfortunately a poor show for the new Grill Room at the recently revamped Oyster Box. A lost reservation (after being phoned back to confirm!) and being offered to sit in their other restaurant. Stale bread rolls and average food did not make a good impression.Service was good with attentive wait staff.However, the lack of corkage should be communicated to the person booking a reservation to avoid the awkwardness of bringing a bottle of wine to dinner. For a 5-star hotel I expected more. I hope they improve soon to avoid the Durban curse of a flash in the pan phenomenon so common to new restaurants here. It will take a lot for our friends and I to try them again.
