South Africa’s Restaurant Week

It’s just over a week before the second-ever Restaurant Week hits South Africa from the 23 October to the 2 November. Restaurants across the country are going to be participating – that means Durban restaurants are stepping up to the plate! If you’re a foodie, it’s a pretty exciting time to explore some of South Africa’s best. I’m even happier knowing Durban has a chance to be a part of this, because we have some rad places to eat at!

The restaurants participating in Restaurant Week have set up lunch and dinner menus for this event. What’s even better is that these menus are at a fixed price! Unless a restaurant is boasting stars from diningcity.co.za, the general consensus is lunch is R95 while dinner will cost R175.

If you’re interested in tasting what Durban has to offer, here is a list of Durban restaurants participating:

9th Avenue Bistro
This is one of Durban’s award winning restaurants! Located in Morningside, this elegant and warm restaurant showcases fresh, seasonal cuisine.
