If you want a quite lunch away from the hustle and bustle of Marriott road but close to everything... have lunch or a coffee or a freshly squeezed juice from this hidden gem. Amazing, friendly and helpful staff to make your experience a memorable one

Unusual menu and great quality food. Ambience is quirky and relaxed for a casual breakfast, brunch or lunch. Highly recommended

This has been a venue which locals have stayed loyal to for many years, and one that visitors enjoy seeking out. As we know the demographics of Durban have changed so many of the dining venues have moved from central Durban. Thankfully not 'Market' admittedly...More

Description
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.
