The Blue Dolphin

The first thing that caught our attention with the Blue Dolphin was the outdoors wood fired pizza oven. I'm sure there are many others out there like us that love pizza and when we finally took our first bite of the Blue Dolphin pizza we fell in love. I still remember thinking about the pizza for days afterwards.  Besides the amazing pizza, the location is gorgeous, situated on Snell Parade at the Blue Waters Hotel. There is an indoors seating area with a stunning bar, including tv's situated in all corners for the sports fans out there. There is also the outdoors area with umbrella's to shade you from the Durban sun, the banana leaf fountain and even a kiddies section where they can run around while parents can enjoy their meal. Following a european trend, this is a Self Service bar, the first of it's kind in Durban. So please don't go to this restaurant expecting to be waited on hand and foot and then be dissapointed. You need to get up and go order your drinks and food at the bar. That is after all what Self Service means. Something not to be overlooked is their coffee. If anyone is a fan of Cafe Jiran's coffee, well then you've just discovered another place that sells the exact same coffee! In fact, it is the very same owners that have setup the Blue Dolphin. And for the cherry on top is the selection of cup cakes and muffins to enjoy with your coffee. They also have great cocktails and serve sushi. I think I've rambled on enough, so enjoy the visuals and be sure to visit the Blue Dolphin next time you're in the area. (Trading hours below)
