La Mercy is a half-hours drive from the city, towards Umhlanga. Despite its situation, this restaurant draws crowds of Durbanites who arrive at lunchtime to sample some of the superb curries that this restaurant has to offer. The servings are large and can be shared if you are on a tight budget. The decor is worth mentioning, not for its taste, but rather for its originality. Best described as disco-industrial, it makes more sense when one bears in mind that the restaurant seconds as a nightclub in the evenings.
Food - seriously, when they say its the best damn prawn curry, they are not joking! Everything comes with a side dish of pickled fruits and curried vegetables, it sounds weird but trust me, it is fantastic! Other items on the menu are just as well made and are good eating, cant say enough about the quality food they present.
Service - ok, has its annoying moments but they try, which is important.
Ambiance wise, not so good, its rather much like an old primary school hall, but it is a stone throw away from the beach - which is fantastic.
Value for money - yup, really, really good. Consider you can purchase a half bunny chow (google bunny cvhow if you dont know what that is) for R15-R20, still get generous amounts of filling (which rocks) and on top of that get the standard side order of pickled vegetables/fruits and curried salad (Just trust me - go try it) for FREE, gratis, Mahala.
All in all, you dont go to Sea Belles for the place, if you want ambiance and fancy lifestyle orientated materialistic shim sham - go to the oyster box and spend half you salary on an oyster. What you go to Sea Belles for is the food - which is exactly what a restaurant should be.
Dont doubt it, just go and eat there - it seems strange and a little dodgy at first but the people and that damn Chef make it all REALLY REALLY WORTHWHILE.
