The Market Café Restaurant Durban

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 Gladys Mazibuko Road ( the old Marriott Road).

Our Story

Welcome to the Market Café Restaurant

Market serves simple quality cuisine using locally and/or organically 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. The 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 ring of Leopard trees, which provide all year mottled shade and its peaceful atmosphere. The outdoor furniture and tables are modelled around 18th-century French garden furniture adding to Market’s allure. The restaurant’s indoor section is more modern minimalist while still providing the feeling of dining somewhere in Europe.

Market is always available for big parties, private functions or weddings.
