About 9th Ave. Waterside

It has been our mission to create a modern, warm and unpretentious venue in the heart of Durban, serving fresh and creative cuisine with an emphasis on high quality seasonal ingredients.

9th Avenue Bistro was owned & run by Graham & Gina Neilson who travelled and worked in top establishments in the USA, the UK, Bermuda, South America and South Africa. It was while travelling they came to the conclusion that there was no place like home and decided that their home town of Durban would be the place for them to make their mark.

9th Avenue Waterside is a continuation of this legacy with our beautiful new restaurant situated in heart of Durban's harbour with breathtaking bay views in a stylish and comfortable environment.

Graham in the kitchen strives for perfection with every plate whilst Gina and the front of house team delivers smooth, knowledgeable and professional service. Showcasing fresh locally sourced seasonal cuisine. All dishes are exquisitely presented, from modern interpretations of Bistro classics to cutting edge gastronomy. During the week we also offer a light lunch menu for those of you in a hurry to return to the office.

The wine list changes regularly and concentrates on smaller boutique wineries offering some of SA's finest, as well as many affordable options.

The wine list also offers a selection of international wines and locally sourced micro brewed beers.. Every few months 9th Avenue hosts set menu dinners paired with leading wine estates from SA and abroad.
