Took all the swimmers from the swim team for a dinner. At first was worried about the environment but once inside we were welcomed by the staff of the restaurant.

Don't be put off by the location of the restaurant. It's in an ugly looking centre, but the food is superb! I highly recommend the half prawns half chicken combo. My guests had the chorico to start and they loved it!

Neo Café, a short walk from the Durban beach front, is a simply decorated, down to earth establishment serving very tasty, authentic Portuguese food with excellent service.

Always friendly staff, had gizzards and crispy squid heads with a mayo dip for starters with piping hot roll, excellent, their fresh kingklip is to die for and cooked to perfection. The french-fries cooked in clean oil and scrumptious. This Restaurant in Durban North is always busy and booking essential.

The squid heads and peri peri chicken are consistently excellent. Can never go wrong with a tasty reasonably priced meal.

We had a lovely peri peri chicken with chips today. We asked for and got extra gravy. A large salad and chilled white wine complemented this splendid meal.

Went to visit with family and friends and we got served by a friendly and helpful waiter. The vibe is great, and the peri peri chicken is a must have! We opted for the peri peri chicken and prawn combo, and it was delicious and cooked perfectly! Had to have a 2Mac Mozambican beer as well! Can definitely recommend!
