A heartfelt thank you to The Oyster Box for the most fabulous Christmas lunch. By far my best dinning experience in Durban. After my turkey was in the oven for our family dinner, I thought to myself ....I wish I made lunch reservations somewhere. But Where ??????????? every restaurant would be fully booked. I had a light bulb idea....Kevin Joseph ...chef alla extraordinary has always accommodated my last minute requests. I called Kevin, with already thinking 'they are full, there's no way I'm going to get a table.' . The answer I received was @what time would you like to come?' . Wow, what an awesome christmas lunch it was. We were greeted and welcomed, I can't decide, like royalty or family or old friends, by the doorman,the hostess, the waiters, Mr Josehp himself , hotel manager Wayne Coetzer whom I didn't realise had donned the santa suit for a few hours and every staff member I had the pleasure to meet at Christmas lunch 2013 at The Oyster Box. 5 star hospitality in Durban is rare, and The Oyster Box has perfected 5 star experience in Durban. Thank you Wayne, Kevin and all the staff of The Oyster Box Hotel for sacrificing your Christmas with your families so that my family and I could have a fabulous Christmas lunch. I almost forgot I believe in magic thank you Mo Magic South Africa. Congratulation The Oyster Box ... your 5 star hospitality can compare to all the 7 star hotels across the globe.
