I heard this has closed down in Glenwood? Had many meals - great Mediterranean cuisine, with best milk shakes in town...Cool, relaxed atmosphere and decor. If it is still in operation - definitely worth a visit!

Was so excited to try this place in its new home in Hillcrest. Food is really great offering a wide selection of delights. Always order the Veg Meze platters to share as well as the meat ones...for the meat eaters with us. Service excellent! !!...More

The food was pretty good but the price was ridiculous. R80 for 4 falafel balls. I was also disappointed that they had cheese inside them. Not authentic at all and as a vegan I wrongly assumed that they would be made without dairy. The staff...More

The owners welcomed us in for a late meal right before closing - and everything was delicious! We were treated extremely well and greeted warmly. I will make sure to return next time I am in Durban.

Visited Yossi for the first time recently and I was impressed, its a small cafe that you'd easily overlook but I'm glad we didn't! Had dinner in one of their cosy corners, absolutely loved the pleasantness (and patience) of our waiter! There's a lovely patio...More

I don't think you have it listed yet, but you should, it's my favourite restaurant! And with the World Cup coming to South Africa this year, I have several restaurants to add, some of the best that you don't list! This restaurant does not have their own website.
