This place has a nice atmosphere, we visited the Fat Cat 2 times. The first time was for an amazing breakfast, and the second time for supper. I ate the seafood platter, and my wife had a pancake. The portions were very generous! The service was good as well! Great experience all in all.

My husband and I enjoyed a quick lunch on our way to Durban from Zulu Nyala Game Lodge. He had a burger with bacon, cheese and fries. I had one of their lunch specials - spinach/feta lasagna with a small Greek salad. Salad was very fresh and lasagna was yummy. We sat outside with a view of the Indian Ocean... More

The fat cat sits in the town itself, there is a bit of an outlook from some of the tables down over the coastal forest and out to sea. The ambience is a mixed affair - can't really put my finger on what they were going for. It's relaxed outside, a bit more formal inside. The food is decently good.... More

Visited Mtunzini as something to do on a lazy Sunday. After looking around in the area we found the Fat Cat. As we haven't had breakfast we decided to do brunch. Having such a beautiful view of the ocean we enjoyed a hearty breakfast. Getting the holiday feeling service and the whole vibe is laid back without compromising on service... More

We had a most enjoyable meal after not visiting for a while. Nice touch to provide some complimentary soup on a cold night. We waited just the right length of time for our meal. The ribs were great! So nice when you get what you expected.

This restaurant satisfied every one of us in our family group of 8. Not one of us could have asked for anything more. The portions were huge but we were all licking our fingers to the very end. My son rated his whole grilled peri peri chicken as the best he had ever had and my daughter-in-law and I loved... More

Stopped there on my way back to Durban and what a nice find. The food and service was good. Only criticism is that the table was sticky, I assume due to the openness of the deck and the proximity to the ocean, might need to find a way to overcome that. Will definitely stop there again

Stopped here on the way up to St.Lucia from Durban, Great find with a very nice view and deck seating. Menu had a lot of choices, since we were in the area we decided on the curry. We tried both the lamb and chicken curry. Both were amazing, the chicken was so tender and the lamb sauce was very rich... More
