This award-winning restaurant, recently named Condé Nast Gourmet magazine South Africa’s "Favourite Restaurant as voted for by the public", is owned & run by Graham & Gina Neilson. The couple travelled and worked in top establishments around the world before they realised that there was no place like home. Thus they decided to open up a small, personal restaurant in Morningside, Durban, creating original and imaginative cuisine.
Graham, who is also the head chef, strives for perfection in the kitchen. 9th Avenue's mission is to be a modern, warm and unpretentious venue, serving fresh and creative cuisine with an emphasis on high-quality seasonal ingredients.
The Diners Club Diamond Award-winning wine list changes regularly and concentrates on smaller boutique wineries offering some of SA's finest, as well a selection of international wines.
Join us at this cosy bistro, complete with white tablecloths and a European feel; the ambience is warm with a welcoming hum coming from the open kitchen.
