Heard about the reviews of the Glenwood reputation so was keen to try the Hillcrest one. Unfortunately, I was really disappointed. Between us we had the Lebanese Roast lamb and the lamb and chicken Tagine. Although they were edible, none of them was special in any way and when you are paying R135 for the chicken and above R150 for... More

We just happened upon this little spot when looking for a nearby restaurant & heard the music & thought it was worth stopping. Menu had great choices & staff were very friendly. Food was delicious. Not sure how often they have live music but Sunday night atmosphere was brilliant.

The owners welcomed us in for a late meal right before closing - and everything was delicious! We were treated extremely well and greeted warmly. I will make sure to return next time I am in Durban.

Visited Yossi for the first time recently and I was impressed, its a small cafe that you'd easily overlook but I'm glad we didn't! Had dinner in one of their cosy corners, absolutely loved the pleasantness (and patience) of our waiter! There's a lovely patio outside as well as live music on certain days.

Outside has smokers section which unfortunately wafted into the inside dining area. Music was stunning. Food made to order - menu stipulates 20 minutes for preparation .. and was delivered on...

Up on a quick business trip, working hard broke away for a quick dinner. Service certainly lives up to the Trip Advisor reviews. Guests all very relaxed and enjoying the downpour outside. Nice jazz playing. Moroccan cuisine and more 'usual' SA fare as well. However, do not expect low seating, cushions and dancing girls. What you will get is no... More

We visited Yossis this week and had some lovely Moroccan dishes, starting with the best Litchi and Mango daiquiri and the most succulent chicken wings. The main courses were authentic Morrocan and the ambience and staff really enhanced the experience.

I don't think you have it listed yet, but you should, it's my favourite restaurant! And with the World Cup coming to South Africa this year, I have several restaurants to add, some of the best that you don't list! This restaurant does not have their own website.
