We went there yesterday to celebrate a friend's 50th birthday. The staff were so slow and so not interested. We were served by numerous waiter so no personal attention was given to us. We waited for an hour for meal and within that hour no one had checked on us. So disappointed with the service levels. The staff were arguing... More

I am a sucker for a little glamour and this is without doubt, a little olde worlde glamour! The family went for a little Easter celebration. The restaurant wasn't too busy but was busy enough to not be weird. The four of us had starters, mains, desserts and a large number of drinks and it came to roughly R400 a... More

Roma Revolving Restaurant is an institution with us on any visit to Durban. The old style highly skilled and experienced Durban Indian waiters and the excellent food combine with the unique panorama high above central Durban and its harbour to make this a very memorable experience

We knew what we were letting ourselves in for based on the reviews. We did want to go to a revolving restaurant, but we had moderate expectations of the food and of the service. The views of Durban Harbour and parts of the city by night are worthwhile, but in all other respects the Roma restaurant just doesn't cut it.... More

Finally tried Roma since we wanted to see Durban from up high.Did not have high expectations and happy that we were positively surprised. Getting out of the lift is like stepping back in time. The decor and ambiance ist straight out of the 70ties. It is all in good shape though and clean. Looking out over Durban is a cool... More

The rotating restaurant is situated on the 32nd floor of the John Ross Tower in Durban. The floor and walls rotate a full 360 degrees in an hour, the service is very courteous and the food is delicious. It is a little pricy but that is compensated for by the high altitude, all round view you cab enjoy of the... More

The Roma Revolving is a classy restaurant. I really enjoyed the food. I had the rack of lamb. One of the best in my life. Enjoying a great meal and an awesome 360 degree view of the city makes the experience memorable. I would highly recommend this spot should you want to spend an unforgettable time.

The night was so wonderful there are barley words to describe the experience. The view was spectacular. The food was scrum-shish. And the service was excellent.

Beautiful place with delicious food, we have been here a few times, and not a bad thing to say, the best part of this restaurant for us are the waiters, the old Indian uncles really make this place better than it is, they are always so friendly and have such a good understanding of the menu, and they will always...

We are from Cape Town, and the restaurant was on our to-do list. With me being afraid of heights, it was a huge thing. It was worth every rand we spend and I did survive the height. Feeling like we go back in time with the traditions they still have, was an experience I will never forget. The food was... More
