The food was fantastic but the service was on another level, really 5 star service, cannot fault our waitress for a single thing. The seafood platter was awesome and all the other meals at our table looked great but the chocolate brownie is to die for, best in SA.

Nothing but only good things to say about our first time at Atasca. Without making a reservation, we were warmly greeted by Sam (Sumanth) and his team, who gladly assisted us with a table for a party of 8 - in Durban, this is a miracle! Our happy waiter and ever-so-helpful Sam constantly checked up on us the whole evening.... More

Booked out the bar area for 25 people for our Christmas party. The set menu was excellent and sufficient variety for everyone. Food quality and service was excellent, had a great time. Thanks to Mel and team for looking after us so well.

It is a popular Portuguese serving restaurant. Unfortunately as it is now part of a chain the food has lost its quality. Portuguese food can be fantastic but overcooking fish and adding a lot of spice does not make it authentic.

I was greeted warmly with every request catered for by Melanie and Candice. I had prearranged flowers from the flower shop in the centre. They ensured that it was... More
