Roma Revolving Restaurant
An exclusive taste of Italy this restaurant revolves slowly providing breathtaking views over the harbor and Durban central. Unashamedly romantic, this restaurant has a solid clientele who visit time and again, the best type of recommendation. Apart from the view, the restaurant serves classic Italian fair such as gnocchi and calamari, to exceptional standards. It is fully licensed and you can choose from a set, or a'la carte menu that ranges in dishes from USD6-12.
It was awesome. Our meal was excellent and it was cooked by the chef in front of us. WOW!! The waiter was very informative and invited us to take a look at the harbour from the roof top - with our glass of wine. The ambiance is one to remember for a very long time.

I went to the Roma revolving restaurant on the 29th of December to celebrate my birthday, with total disgust at the restaurant, Firstly when we arrived at the restaurant we were seated in a small little area in the middle of the walkway on a table that was seated side by side and not on either side of the table. We waited for over 45 minutes before being waited and a further 1h.15 minutes before being served. The waiter was very rude and unwelcoming, he yawned for most of the night the only good part of the evening was the orders man and the meal itself. I had fruit salad for desert which looked a few days old in taste and mouth feel. As a food technologist by trade i was totally shocked by the display.
I did not like that it was hard to get the attention of the waiters when you needed something,I think a bell or a light switch should be placed on every table, so it is easier to call for attention without distracting other patrons.otherwise this place is magic,great ''hot'' food,great survice,great welcome.
just play some soft music so that it covers the noise coming from other tables.cant wait to visit 'roma'' again.
The management and staff are first class. We live abroad but whenever we are in Durban, South Africa, at least one meal at the Roma is a must - it feels like coming home! The views are awesome overlooking Durban.
Roma is not in a safe area of the city. It is not used as it was many years ago. To visit there one must think of it as a relic of an earlier time in order to appreciate it. It's like visiting the older parts of Las Vegas. Smoky, smelly, but if you're polite, ask to speak to the maitre'D rather than sit and complain, you will receive the best attention and the views are unsurpassed. Just be careful going to and from your car.
We spent a wonderful evening last week with our SA relatives in a relaxed atmosphere with excellent service and a fantastic view. The friendly staff made our night very enjoyable and the Roma is as good as any restaurant we have visited in our travels around the world.
The most discusting service i have ever had - had to wait a hour to be seated and we had booked a month in advance(had to order in the reception area so that we wouldnt have to wait longer at the table when seated, they then just made a table squashed amoungst others- this was rediculous as we pay good money to get a decent table, we then requested a better table and waited another 20min (it is ovbious that they had overbooked themselves)the manager was nowhere to be found and the staff was so unhelpful, i will never go to this restaurant again!
