A local favorite restaurant in the Mount Edgecombe area. This restaurant continues to provide great service and food. My peri peri livers where superb as was my deboned chicken - excellent! Really tender and full of flavor. Corkage for my own wine was R50 which is very reasonable. Always check out the specials board as there is always something interesting... More

This is lovely little spot just on the edge of the Mt Edgecombe golf course. The setting is a nice laid back subtle feel, with dimmed lights and calming tunes. We did pre-book a table and got there around 6.30pm on a Friday evening and the place was pretty quiet. We were greeted by the friendly staff and was guided... More

We had reason to celebrate with my sister visiting Durban so treated ourselves with a trip to Marco Paulo. What an exceptional meal - 7 out of 7 delighted diners. Divine melt in the mouth fillet which was surprisingly tasty with yummy Parmesan mash. Two pasta dishes were delicious - my daughters had their Nopolatana doggie bags for breakfast! And... More

The restaurant, located next to the Mt Edgecombe Country Club provides good South African food. Although the noise level seems to be extremely high, there is a good atmosphere and the service is excellent. I love the pizza here. There is a nice pub right next door to the restaurant, belonging to the same operator and one can get the... More

Having read the reviews on tripadvisor we decided to give this restaurant a try. Service was pretty good and staff were attentive. Had the duck spring roll special for starter, was just okay. My wife had the prawn in phyllo pastry which she enjoyed. We both had the mozambiquean prawns for mains which was also a special of the day.... More

Four of us enjoyed beautifully cooked food. The fresh Rock Cod cooked Asian Style and Grilled was as good as it gets. Only problem is the nose level as always

Marcos is one of my favourite spots in Durban. I'm not a fan of the atmosphere (just not my thing) but the food makes anything worth it. Franks food comes from the same kitchen but in the more relaxed bar style setting of booths and a great bar, adjacent to Marcos. As usual, my dining parter tried the burger (Franks... More
