Hi, No banner on arrival as requested. Waited a while to be attended to, after the lady finished on the phone. Service was very good. Food was average and overpriced. I received about 150g of springbok (3 thin (about 5mm )slices of meat about a palm size) with mash and veg (R160)), expected more. presentation average. Decor outdated.
Other 4 guests food was average at best, wifes grilled chicken was probably best meal (not better that a Nandos though).
Very good views, but with some places the lights shining towards the window instead of away, creating glare.

Last night my family gave me a wonderful birthday gift. They took me to the Roma Revolving restaurant in Durban.

Our children were delighted with the class of the restaurant and one of them commented, "It feels like we are in Los Angeles. Or somewhere else overseas." And so it did.

The food was simply awesome. Italian food at its best!

The service was amazing. The levels of attention were perfect without being intrusive. And the caring advice of the owner was superb.

I definitely recommend that you take the opportunity to eat here and experience the Old-Worlde charm and view - as the restaurant slowly revolves to show you our beautiful city!

Celebrating our wedding anniversary at the Roma was disappointing because of bad service, noisy children and annoying music.
The food was incredibly delicious and the views stunning, which could make one forgive the shocking service and horrific music, stuck on two tracks for 2 hours, and then in the lift going to the car park as well....screeeeech!

Up on the 32nd floor, this place has amazing views of Durban passing before your eyes.
We came across it by chance and had a pleasant meal with attentive service, but not overwhelming.
Slightly old fashioned feeling but comfortable and unusual.
Worth a try.
