Roma Revolving Restaurant

This legendary exclusive revolving restaurant was officially opened in February 1973. The Roma was born from a concept pioneered by Bartholoeo Ribero, Turi and Gino Leopardi. Now proudly owned by the Reelin Group and managed by the Leopardi brothers. We are proud to say that we are the only genuine revolving restaurant in the southern hemisphere and the 3rd of its kind in the world. Roma Revolving Restaurant also boasts the unique feature, as two others do, of a revolving window and floor area! The restaurant is situated on the 32nd Level of the John Ross House overlooking the whole of Durban and surrounding areas with excellent sea and bay views.

Our family of 19 enjoyed a wonderful evening at the Roma. The adults ordered different meals and no one was disappointed with their meal. The children couldn't stop raving about the spaghetti bolognnaise. The service was great. And of course the lovely view.

A wonderful experience, definitely a restuarant to recommend to locals & tourists. Management & staff were amazing from the time we arrived until we left +3 hours later). Only negative comment is that the evening had to come to an end
