About Big Easy Durban by Ernie Els
Earning his nickname ‘Big Easy’ as much for his effortless golf swing as for his big heart and philanthropic efforts, Ernie Els is synonymous with all-round excellence; pursuing the best in sports and leisure, while always staying true to his love of family and country.
“Having travelled the world, I have developed a good feeling for what I look for in a restaurant – great hospitality in a fun, relaxed environment in which to enjoy the end of a long day – spending time with friends over a great bottle of wine and a meal,” says Els. “The ethos behind Big Easy Durban Restaurant is to achieve that.”
“We are excited to be part of one of the world’s iconic hotel brands through this partnership with Hilton and Durban offers the perfect launching-pad, with its laid-back vibe and idyllic weather. It’s a great fit.”
A hole in one ecperience!
Big Easy is still on the 5 on my list in Durban .... keep up tjhe wonderful service
Excellent service, with waiters always nearby to assist. Food was excellent and well priced and served promptly and as directed. We were a table of 16 and everything ran smoothly. I would highly recommend this restaurant
Food was great and the service was excellent. Definitely Will go back there.
Dear Mr Reddy Thank you for swinging by the Big Easy! We are glad to hear that we hit the sweet spot. We look forward to welcoming you back. Kind Regards Scott
Excellent service and food
Had a fantastic time at Big easy durban. Very professional and welcoming staff. Special mention to the waiter that assisted us, don't quiet remember his name but it started with an "O", he was brilliant.
The food was superb, the atmosphere was welcoming so as the staff I would recommend this place to anyone. Thank you
Great addition to Durban’s restaurant scene. The only place where the staff actually know what they are doing and it feels like a “proper” restaurant.
Restaurant was totally full.
Everything was excellent. The food was amazing. The atmosphere was great. The waitress did an excellent job.We had a lovely time. Thank you to the Big Easy team.
Ayanda was absolutely amazing in guiding us through our wine pairing dinner and just made our evening extra special
We were served by Nathi and he was superb.
I was very disappointed with the way my booking was handled. I have done tons of client dinners all over the country...this was the first where I got no proper feedback detailing specifications of the dinner for a big group, no information on how corporate payments are handled etc I requested about 6 table wines and they were not provided. the two managers on duty made it a point to ask how I will be paying but forgot to ensure the table wines were provided. the waiter for the evening made the experience a much more pleasant one. he was nice and attended to all the detail. thank you the staff was very friendly and helpful and the restaurant generally is lovely.
A special shout out to Sne for making sure that my husband's 40th celebration was a success.
It was our 17 year wedding anniversary and we really wanted to go somewhere amazing so, after looking at your website, we decided on the Big Easy The highlight of the night was the lamb shank which the waitron recommended. This was delicious. Unfortunately the restaurant was very noisy - not really suitable for an anniversary dinner so we ended up just eating and then we left. We were seated at the table along the main passage for waiters so having people passing by continually did not help. Why ask a guest to advise you on the booking if the dinner is a special occasion when you don't take that into consideration when allocating the table?
Amazing, thank you.
The Jordan wine and food pairing was outstanding. Meal was delicious and complimented the wines beautifully. The staff went the extra mile to make the night superb.
My expectations are always met when it come to this place, the stuff is friendly, service it tops and the food is just to die for. Tuesdays paring menu was too fabulous Thanks to the Chef...
the service was great, and the food didn't disappoint either. I would definitely come back.
The food was very nice, great service, great atmosphere and friendly staff. My girlfriends loved everything about your restaurant . Thank you Big Easy!
Massive thanks to the Big Easy Team for making our wedding celebrations so special. After some initial glitches with our booking, I was truly impressed with the service provided by the Big Easy Team, especially their Food and Beverage Manager, Sne Ngubane, who managed and executed our booking to perfection. Please thank your staff for all their hard work and for being so friendly and helpful, not forgetting Chef Andrew for our delicious cake. We would certainly recommend the Big Easy restaurant to our colleagues and each time I’m in South Africa I will make every attempt to dine with you again. Thank you for making our celebrations so memorable, it was a truly an impressive experience.
Lovely ambience, food and service....thoroughly enjoyed ourselves
Best service by far!
