Been there many times and was always impressed. Great setting with water fountain, birds and shady leopard trees. The service was friendly and excellent. The food was prepared and presented. My grandson enjoyed the 3 cups of baby cappuccino. Recommended

Trendy eatery tucked away in a quaint courtyard. Enjoy sitting outdoors under the shade of the trees alternatively an indoor seating area is also available. Varied and different food is on offer. A great meeting place to enjoy breakfast brunch or lunch with friends.

Market is a world-class garden café/restaurant, situated in a quiet courtyard behind a classic 1930’s colonial building at the foot of Durban’s Berea in Marriott Road. Market serves simple quality cuisine using locally and/or organic sourced ingredients in a professional, unique, and caring environment. Market is also known for its selection of award winning South African wines, freshly squeezed fruit juices and coffee. Our fine dining dinner food specials change regularly and provide the perfect catalyst for any occasion, whether it be your first date or a birthday celebration. The courtyard has a central fountain surrounded by a a ring of Leopard trees, which provide all year mottled shade and its peaceful atmosphere. The outdoor furniture and tables are modeled around 18th century French garden furniture, adding to Market’s allure. The restaurant’s indoor section is more a modern minimalist while still providing the feeling of dining somewhere in Europe. Market is always available for big parties, private functions or weddings.
