Nice place that caters for children. Play area etc. Arranged so that you can keep an eye on your youngster. Food is average. Light meals mostly.

Great spot for kids to play outside on the jungle gyms and look at rabbits and chickens etc! The service is good and food good. The place could do with a revamp in the kitchen which appears old and and therefore does not exude a fresh and clean appearance, which is needed when eating out.

I have had two birthday parties here and often bring my grandchildren to burn off some energy. They have a lovely buffet breakfast on Saturdays ( excellent value for money). A great place for ladies meetings, stork parties, and any informal gatherings. They have lovely fresh cake and some of the best sushi in Durban. Nice and quiet during school... More

This is the perfect restaurant for a family. Nice play area to keep the kids busy. Food is nice too, they also serve sushi which is a bonus. Staff is friendly, however service is slow.

We sat on the verandah on long stretch couches with flamboyant cushions for comfort.Large jugs of water were served with lemon and ice. Nice touch!The food was really excellent the sushi platters...

Marulas is not the most glamorous place but it does the trick. It has rich history which you can read about in the menu while sitting outside under the umbrellas, watching the kids play in the huge kiddies play area. We were baby sitting for the day so this is a great place to let them burn off their energy.... More

On my mothers birthday we decided to have a special breakfast at Marula's. The venue is great, can eat indoors or out on the veranda which is very nice. A total of 6 breakfasts were ordered. Five breakfasts were returned to the kitchen because they were served ice cold. These were then reserved hot, but the sixth which was a... More

We discovered this little hidden gem today. Service was fantastic and food was very good. An amazing place to go with the kids, they have loads of jungle gym type activities as well as a room full of arcade style rides and games. Great atmosphere, will definitely be going back with our mates!
