Amazing restaurant in a beautiful setting! Awesome atmosphere in a quaint courtyard setting. Delicious menu - for breakfast, lunch and dinner! The only issue you will have is deciding what to order as everything looks delicious!!

My family booked for breakfast.. Service was slow and breakfast options were limited due to insufficient ingredients in kitchen. Disappointed especially since the view and atmosphere is so beautiful.

Extraordinary food made even more memorable by our professional and attentive waitress Summer. The salmon with orange was a stunner; lamb rack one of the best I have had. She served us the Anura Pinotage we had ordered with hesitation fearing that we might not like it. We absolutely did and thoroughly enjoyed its Spanish undertones. Can't recommend enough!

On a month long visit to Durban and with a host of outstanding places to eat, we dined twice at Market... and I would go back again if there was time. Lunch with friends in the courtyard was a sublime way to spend an afternoon. Delicious combinations of tastes, flavours and ingredients make choosing difficult. The Prawn an quinoa salad... More

Market is a known favorite for a lot of the Durban foodies. The food here is fresh, the flavors different and the atmosphere is always lovely. You can sit out in their gravel outdoor seating area near a pretty little fountain, or indoors. The restaurant lends itself to a relaxing experience blending the outdoors and indoors beautifully. The freshly squeezed... More
