“Good for group outings”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014

Been here with a group recently and we thoroughly enjoyed this.

Meals to be off high quality and we had very good service.

Pricey but if once in a while then its good to check out

“"Quality at its best"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014

From the moment you walk in, the hosting is nothing short of perfection. The presentation and quality of the food is second to none. The wine list is also varied and complete. Fine dining at its best. I will definitely be back for seconds!

“Surprisingly reasonable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

We had a celebratory Anniversary Dinner and were expecting it to be very pricey but were surprisingly proved wrong. Service was very good, warm but not pretentious. Main meal (Ravioli) was interesting. Baked Alaska a bit of a flop but laughed it off and whole experience was very good otherwise.

“Afternoon Tea - Mothers Day Treat!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

The Oyster Box was booked as a Mother's Day treat during our visit to Umhlanga. It was a wonderful day and when the staff heard that it was Mothering Sunday in the UK then we were spoilt. We were treated to a glass of champagne, specially decorated cupcakes and even a gift. Their afternoon tea was exceptional, too deliciour to describe, you just have to go.

“Fine dining in Durban”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014 via mobile

If you are looking for class then you have chosen the right restaurant in Durban. The food was excellent. I could not find any faults. Great and friendly service and as for the executive chef, Mr Kevin Joseph....top marks! The man is super friendly with all his clientele and makes you feel at home!

The ambience is superb and you know you in a place of class, style, elegance and romance all in one!

If you are aiming to charm the love of your life......then the Oyster Box is the place for you!

Well worth every penny spent! I will be going back! For me top restaurant in KZN!
