“Enjoyable food and atmosphere”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

I remember the original Press Club in Durban City fondly and I think that's the only reason I tried this in the first place! Was completely enjoyable - nothing special. Good service. Good food. Large portions. Would definitely visit again.

“very unassuming but enjoyed it”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Great coffee, great reception and the theme is also quite unique and adds a lot of value in the newly refurbed shopping centre.

The eggs benedict could be better but saying that, I would most certainly eat here again and as I said, the coffee was great.

“Always a good experience”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

We have been to the newish restaurant in Umhlanga 4 times now and have had a lovely meal each time. The service is attentive and friendly.

I do not eat any carbohydrates so finding something good is difficult as this diet is restrictive. I had calamari with vegetables on Friday and it was great. I hope there was no flour in the preparation!

Lovely place for a break at lunchtime..

“Tell me to stay away - you'll shrink my clothes!”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Ah, finally - a breakfast place in Durban that offers terrific dishes, not the same old stuff that one seems to be offered nearly everywhere in South Africa. (Some great exceptions in the Cape, which I have written about.) Three different breakfast dishes, all refreshingly interesting and tasty. Friendly and constructive staff. I really am trying to keep away. Maybe I'll weaken and be back next week. As an aside, I enjoyed a terrific curry evening, which the Press Club holds once a month - all buffet curries fresh and different. The place is a gem, but its setting has some noisy "outside" seating within the shopping complex. Try it for breakfast and dinner!
