The burgers here are pretty good, but other than that, the food here is rather average. Not exactly a budget meal either.

Hi there. Visited today and despite the slow service I enjoyed the food and venue. What I'd like to recommend is a change of menu it has not changed in years and it would be nice to find some additional options to try?

Tucked in behind a linen store by the same name, this garden restaurant is an oasis in a busy and chaotic city. Stop by for a freshly made juice or espresso. The spicy quinoa salad was very tasty. Very friendly and helpful staff. I could...More

Description
Market is a world-class garden café/restaurant, situated in a quiet courtyard behind a classic 1930’s colonial building at the foot of Durban’s Berea in Marriott Road. Market serves simple quality cuisine using locally and/or organic sourced ingredients in a professional, unique, and caring environment. Market is also known for its selection of award winning South African wines, freshly squeezed fruit juices and coffee. Our fine dining dinner food specials change regularly and provide the perfect catalyst for any occasion, whether it be your first date or a birthday celebration. The courtyard has a central fountain surrounded by a a ring of Leopard trees, which provide all year mottled shade and its peaceful atmosphere. The outdoor furniture and tables are modeled around 18th century French garden furniture, adding to Market’s allure. The restaurant’s indoor section is more a modern minimalist while still providing the feeling of dining somewhere in Europe. Market is always available for big parties, private functions or weddings.
