We stopped for Saturday lunch as we were passing and had heard that the food here was good.
The resturant was empty except for about five other tables so we chose to sit on the balcony.You have an amazing view of the ocean and we were lucky enough to have five old planes passing doing acrobatics as the small airport is close by.
The service was good except when we were asked if the food was ok when I replied just ok,with that the waiter just smiled.
The mussels I had would have been lovely if they and the sauce that they were in had been warm and it was a very small portion for a main meal. I mentioned this to the person i pressumed was the manager and he replied he'd let the kitchen know.
My husband ordered the fish and chips which unusually arrived on a bed of mashed potato with a portion of chips.His meal was just ok and the chips in his words horrible.
Very dissapointing.

This is truly the best fish restaurant in Durban - One of the greatest attributes of a restaurant is
consistency! After many visits, Jack Salmon's tasty dishes always deliver an excellent quality that is always remembered.
From the tasty Meze platter to the truly authentic Sushi, we will always visit this oasis when holidaying in Durbs.
Congratulations to the Chef and never ever take those brownies off the menu!

We were recommended this place by another Joberger and well I am glad we made a trip to it. By far one of the top sea food restaurant's. The sushi was excellent and the Kingclip Cleopatra was superb. Do your self a favour if in Durban / Umhlanga make a trip to this excellently priced amazing service and beautiful places.

When the Chef develops a nose to distinguish Bechemal Sauce from a proper Brandy Cream and Peppercorn Sauce. When they dont use the same stinky knife used to cut the onions, when chopping the rest of the salad ingredients. When you say it was "so-so" to the waiter when he asks, and he takes that as a compliment instead if asking what was wrong.

I've been waiting to try it, so glad we did. Starter mezze platter was generous in portion size and absolutely delicious. Also had the mussels (tasty) and then the parmesan kingklip. Again.. Faultless. Service was on point, a rarity in Durban. No wonder they're rated #1 for seafood in Durban. Congrats on the perfect merge of amazingfood and great service /atmosphere!
