Description: Market is a world-class garden café/restaurant, situated in a quiet courtyard behind a classic 1930’s colonial building at the foot of Durban’s Berea in Marriott Road. Market serves simple quality cuisine using locally and/or organic sourced ingredients in a professional, unique, and caring environment. Market is also known for its selection of award winning South African wines, freshly squeezed fruit juices and coffee. Our fine dining dinner food specials change regularly and provide the perfect catalyst for any occasion, whether it be your first date or a birthday celebration. The courtyard has a central fountain surrounded by a a ring of Leopard trees, which provide all year mottled shade and its peaceful atmosphere. The outdoor furniture and tables are modeled around 18th century French garden furniture, adding to Market’s allure. The restaurant’s indoor section is more a modern minimalist while still providing the feeling of dining somewhere in Europe. Market is always available for big parties, private functions or weddings.

On a week long solo trip to Durbs, 'market' . took care of me for my evening meals! Great vibe, good choice menu, delicious food and attentive service. So refreshing to be in an owner run venue!
Highly recommend popping in, breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Arrived here for a quick bite to eat for lunch and left 3 hours later! Great ambiance, greater food and even greater fresh smoothies!

Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and will most definitely be back!
PS: don't go there rushed...you will there for a while!

We came for lunch..The ambience was nice with live music and rustic feel.

The food is average though.. and the service was not so good as it took long for someone to attend to us even though the place was not busy.. not impressed.

Market is one of our favourite places to visit when we go to Durban. The courtyard dining is wonderful - no matter the time of the year. The food was excellent on this visit and even though the restaurant was packed both inside and out the service was friendly, unhurried and fun.

Completely hidden from the busy road is a place you have to find. The friendly service and atmosphere on a wet winter evening was just so welcoming. The circle of trees and a water fountain plus the oversized 'worshond' benches make the quirky into charm.
Food was simple, well presented and exceptionally tasty.

Don't tell anyone!
