Executive Chef Mathew Armbruster and his brigade of 12 qualified chefs have crafted their menu around fresh, local and seasonal ingredients. The dishes are inspired by what is readily available on the day. Fresh produce from local, organic farmers arrives in the morning and the dishes are tweaked and arranged accordingly. The menu changes slightly every day and each season will see different ingredients and new dishes to enjoy. The open plan kitchen is at the heart of the restaurant - for the theatre of it but also for the chefs, to stay connected to the energy of the diners. Watch the chefs at work and feel the connection to the food and the beautifully plated dishes being prepared.

    Always a delightful experience filled with exquisite food, well trained waiters, and an extravagant menu to please both the vegan and the meat eater. Chef's Table is not only the best restaurant in Durban but one of South Africa's best restaurants, by far. The chef and his team wins my applause each time. The sommelier is among the best one can find in a restaurant and is certainly well informed to offer patrons a very special experience of pairing wine with the plate of your choice. Rozena Maart

    Excellent service The main fish was a bit over cooked, committed one of my friends Also my starter pork croquettes were a salty and dry and there wasn’t enough sweetness to compliment it… Our chocolate hazelnut dessert was incredible The oyster mushroom main was tasty and superb So was the main lamb excellent

    Claude was a phenomenal waiter who explained the menu and our dishes carefully to us. The food was unreal, beautifully plated and absolutely delicious! The pork crackling was perfect! The wine complimented our food and we will definitely be back!
