Table booked for 6 family members to mark the end of our recent stay in Durban. Reviews were good - and the menus on the website looked interesting. First problem - the menu we were actually given didn't bear much resemblance to the website offerings. No daily specials, no fixed price offerings, no tasting menus and no vegetarian menus (al...

Egoistic restaurant manager. Bad food. Over priced. Just terrible. I regret wasting my time there. After the terrible starter we order the bill and went to drive in. DONT GO.

Service was friendly, efficient and very nice. Food was delicious. The atmosphere could be a bit lighter, but it's cosy and nice. The car park in front of the restaurant helps

Whilst the interior and exterior decor is strangely Spartan, the food and the service is absolutely amazing. We recently held an anniversary dinner at 9th Ave Bistro and were really impressed with the food. Very well prepared, tasty and generously portioned. The interior decoration could really do with some thought as it creates the impression of the restaurant being less... More
