We literally got off the plane from CT and drove into Durban with time to spare before meeting family. I read about this place in Lonely Planet and the review was spot on. The restaurant was buzzing with Christmas lunches but they found us a...More

Went here for dinner on recent visit to Durban - could be better signposted. We hadn't booked and all inside tables and tables on the top balcony outside were all reserved. We were seated in the courtyard area which was OK by us, but were...More

Tucked in behind a linen store by the same name, this garden restaurant is an oasis in a busy and chaotic city. Stop by for a freshly made juice or espresso. The spicy quinoa salad was very tasty. Very friendly and helpful staff. I could...More

Great location, friendly staff, simple fresh food well executed. Had a nice chat with the chef Sean. Seems focus on sourcing local artisanal product, he mentioned that the owner is brewing his own beer which is a great idea.

Meals were lovely, amazing atmosphere and people. Friendly staff. Waited for a while for the food but that gave me time to browse the little stores right there! I had forgotten where i was for a while. I would most definitely go back.

Market is a world-class garden café/restaurant, situated in a quiet courtyard behind a classic 1930’s colonial building at the foot of Durban’s Berea in Marriott Road.

Market serves simple quality cuisine using locally and/or organic sourced ingredients in a professional, unique, and caring environment. Market is also known for its selection of award winning South African wines, freshly squeezed fruit juices and coffee. Our fine dining dinner food specials change regularly and provide the perfect catalyst for any occasion, whether it be your first date or a birthday celebration.
The courtyard has a central fountain surrounded by a a ring of Leopard trees, which provide all year mottled shade and its peaceful atmosphere. The outdoor furniture and tables are modeled around 18th century French garden furniture, adding to Market’s allure. The restaurant’s indoor section is more a modern minimalist while still providing the feeling of dining somewhere in Europe.

Market is always available for big parties, private functions or weddings.
