Just what Durban needed, a stylish bar at the beach. The best thin based pizza with a variety of topping options for a great price. A relaxed atmosphere and even fun for kids during the day with an AstroTurf play area. Perfect position to walk straight off the beach to enjoy a cocktail and delicious pizza!

Just what Durban needs: an outdoor/indoor café with great cocktails and possibly the best thin-based gourmet pizzas Durban has to offer. I have been a few times with friends and family, really enjoy sitting outdoors enjoying the Durban climate on the Beachfront. The pizzas are expertly made and well-priced (R55). Nice safe enclosed area with astroturf and things for kids to play on (wendyhouse, jumping castle, etc). Will be back this weekend!

Friends invited me out for my birthday and suggested that we try the Blue Dolphin - sushi and pizza - well being a lover of Chinese food I reluctantly agreed to their suggestion.
Wow - what a wonderful night we had. With there being 6 of us we were able to order an assortment of pizza and sushi platters and share - I am converted.
With the outside seating area, the sound of the sea and excellent service we could not believe that we were in Durban. The furnishings inside are stunning and whilst there is a casual relaxed atmosphere - very elegant.

My friends and myself was pleasantly surprised when we discovered Blue Dolphin. I think it is the best pizzas in town!!! It is self service so one must get use to it but staff is friendly :) I would highly recommend Blue Dolphin to families with kids it is very kids friendly and they will love watching the chef making the pizzas.

The drinks are very reasonable priced and I think it is awesome to have a Sunday Pizza with the kids and then go for a walk on the beach! The sushi is okay I had it once but prefer the pizza my favourite is the Italian Bunny Chow YUM YUM :)
