a fun outing with enjoyable food . one of the few remaining revolving restaurants in the world. you get a fine changing view of Durban and the harbour as you eat your meal. sunset is a good time to go as you can have a drink on the roof before you eat and watch the lights of Durban come on.

Lovely setting & views of Durban 32 floors up. Food was good, service a bit pushy especially for drinks & coffee. What was very disappointing was that all the internet sites show their set menus from R185 to R210 & when we got the bill it was R300pp, we were five !! We had to ask three times for the... More

Haven't dined here for many years. Used to be a favourite especially for overseas guests & the restaurant immediately came to mind for the last evening of a family member over from the UK. She was totally blown away by the stunning views from Durban's only revolving restaurant. Prices seemed a bit steep but the generosity of the portions &... More

The views are fantastic and a lovely experience, but as a restaurant it is a little dissappointing. Service was slow and uncoordinated and it is pricey for what you get. As an experience though, I'm glad we went there.

We went there yesterday to celebrate a friend's 50th birthday. The staff were so slow and so not interested. We were served by numerous waiter so no personal attention was given to us. We waited for an hour for meal and within that hour no one had checked on us. So disappointed with the service levels. The staff were arguing... More

I am a sucker for a little glamour and this is without doubt, a little olde worlde glamour! The family went for a little Easter celebration. The restaurant wasn't too busy but was busy enough to not be weird. The four of us had starters, mains, desserts and a large number of drinks and it came to roughly R400 a... More

Roma Revolving Restaurant is an institution with us on any visit to Durban. The old style highly skilled and experienced Durban Indian waiters and the excellent food combine with the unique panorama high above central Durban and its harbour to make this a very memorable experience

We knew what we were letting ourselves in for based on the reviews. We did want to go to a revolving restaurant, but we had moderate expectations of the food and of the service. The views of Durban Harbour and parts of the city by night are worthwhile, but in all other respects the Roma restaurant just doesn't cut it.... More
