I heard this has closed down in Glenwood? Had many meals - great Mediterranean cuisine, with best milk shakes in town...Cool, relaxed atmosphere and decor. If it is still in operation - definitely worth a visit!

Was so excited to try this place in its new home in Hillcrest. Food is really great offering a wide selection of delights. Always order the Veg Meze platters to share as well as the meat ones...for the meat eaters with us. Service excellent! !! I have to say however that the location in Glenwood definitely had a lot more... More

The food was pretty good but the price was ridiculous. R80 for 4 falafel balls. I was also disappointed that they had cheese inside them. Not authentic at all and as a vegan I wrongly assumed that they would be made without dairy. The staff and managers were very accommodating and there was a nice vibe but we were surprised... More

Heard about the reviews of the Glenwood reputation so was keen to try the Hillcrest one. Unfortunately, I was really disappointed. Between us we had the Lebanese Roast lamb and the lamb and chicken Tagine. Although they were edible, none of them was special in any way and when you are paying R135 for the chicken and above R150 for... More

We just happened upon this little spot when looking for a nearby restaurant & heard the music & thought it was worth stopping. Menu had great choices & staff were very friendly. Food was delicious. Not sure how often they have live music but Sunday night atmosphere was brilliant.

The owners welcomed us in for a late meal right before closing - and everything was delicious! We were treated extremely well and greeted warmly. I will make sure to return next time I am in Durban.

Visited Yossi for the first time recently and I was impressed, its a small cafe that you'd easily overlook but I'm glad we didn't! Had dinner in one of their cosy corners, absolutely loved the pleasantness (and patience) of our waiter! There's a lovely patio outside as well as live music on certain days.

Description
I don't think you have it listed yet, but you should, it's my favourite restaurant! And with the World Cup coming to South Africa this year, I have several restaurants to add, some of the best that you don't list! This restaurant does not have their own website.
