The restaurant gives very high hopes but does not live up to expectations. Yes the food was nice but poor service and over priced portions.

This restaurant has a lovely friendly atmosphere, with exceptionally attentive and knowledgeable service. They catered to the requests of our large group of 11 with a smile! The food was incredibly delicious, and yet still reasonably priced. Would highly recommend for a trip to Durban.

My husband and I had an amazing date night supper at Cafe 99. The food and service was impeccable. We thoroughly enjoyed the cosy atmosphere. Will definitely be back.

I really enjoyed this little restaurant, I liked that it was so small and intimate and allowed for our group of 15 to kind of take over... the food was excellent and the service was very good

Booked five days ahead to arrive on a cold evening to be seated at the open door in a draft, which the waiter said would only close later when all the patrons had arrived. A very noisy restaurant not only limited our conversation but also...More
