Destinations / Africa

Over in South Africa’s KwaZulu-Natal province, Durban is an eclectic coastal city with a lot to offer. Well known for the region’s diverse influences, from Indian and colonial to surrounding African regions, Durban’s diverse personality shows through not only its city attractions and history, but most significantly through its culinary offerings.

Circus Circus Café

With a focus on local, seasonal and fresh cuisine, Circus Circus is a great stop for an authentic Durban experience. With a long list of options, you can please the range of eaters in your group, from vegetarian to carnivores. The restaurant utilizes the coastal town’s plethora of fresh seafood and seasonally fresh ingredients across its four branches. Read through the rotating menu of diverse offerings for any meal of the day, including breakfast, lunch, brunch, deli, dinner, dessert and coffee. Sit and eat with the kids on a break from sightseeing, or take away and explore your local surroundings.

Afro’s Chicken Shop

For cheap eats and a whole lot of flavor, Afro’s Chicken Shop offers a wide variety of options. Choose from casual fare, including sandwiches, burgers, salads, platters, strips, sides and bietjies, or bits. This shop is another great grab-and-go locale, with the option to sit and dine — all on a budget in a super low-key atmosphere.

The Chefs Table

Something a little (okay, a lot) more upscale, The Chefs Table is a great one-stop shop for an elevated atmosphere, curated menu and treat yourself moment. Enjoy a high-end family dinner with exceptional, innovative local cuisine in the luxury comforts of swanky décor and chic vibes.

Market Restaurant

Located in Essenwood, Market Restaurant is a staple for visitors and locals alike. The Mediterranean blend offers plenty of hearty vegetarian and vegan options, along with cuisine for the carnivores like lamb burgers and pan-seared duck. Let the kids run free and choose from what their hearts desire, as this establishment almost exclusively offers locally sourced, nutrition-forward options. The restaurant may be down a website, but you can find more information here, thanks to a user review.

Roma Revolving Restaurant

Enjoy the experience of Roma Revolving Restaurant with views of the bay to one side, city to the other and a rotating panorama throughout. The kids will love the slow-motion ride and unique experience with a menu of safe, family-friendly options. Parents and adult children, enjoy great local wine while everyone noshes on Italian cuisine and takes in the ever-changing, 360-degree view of the city. Even for novelty’s sake, this restaurant is a fun stop for the family and the only one of its kind in the area.
