Umhlanga is blessed with a selection of outstanding restaurants, offering fine food and great ambience. In addition, because of Durban’s year round fabulous weather, diners are able to enjoy sitting outside, whilst enjoying their meal and in many cases, exquisite views – much like you would experience at the ever-popular Ocean Terrace at The Oyster Box.
