We had 1 day to experience Wilsons Warf and chose Zacks. What a dissapointment! Margarita was sickly sweet. Draft beer not available and only SAB beers on offer no Craft beer. . The Greek Chicken breast had zero flavour. No hint of Rosemary or Lemon....More

Read some very mixed reviews but decided the location was good so we were going to give this place a chance. We were pleasantly surprised by our meal and the service. Calamari was delicious but could be hotter. Burgers were huge and cocktails were well...More

Very pleasant setting and great views of numerous luxury boats parked along side the wharf. In addition, one is able to see parts of the view along the Durban Esplanade and the harbour in the distance. Attended a business meeting in the morning when it...More
