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.”
Had an amazing experience. The food was great, the atmosphere was exceptional. Thank you so much.
Petros was great and delivered exceptional service to our table. Thank you!
The Big Easy is my go to restaurant for fine dining and amazing customer service. I love it
Had party for 26 people was extremely disappointing food was inconstant and most main meals returned.waste of my hard earned money.
We may not always get a “hole-in-one” but we will continue to focus on delivering exceptional food and service to our clients. Thank you kindly for bringing this situation to our attention. We will address these issues with our Head Chef and the rest of the Big Easy team.
Fantastic! We will definitely being coming back for more! All 17 guests said this was the best XMAS party we ever held! I should know - I have been at PEKAY for 30 years!
I booked for my parents 40th wedding anniversary and it was definitely a memorable experience. Great service, exceptional food coupled with immaculate attention to detail. Definitely an amazing fine dining experience with nothing to fault them on.
We had a terrible time. The kitchen had a ticketing issue. We only received our complimentary rolls nearly 2hours after ordering! And food took even longer... Starter arrived burnt. Was not a pleasant experience at all. Absolutely ruined our anniversary... Manager said he would take the starter off the bill, but never did.
Thank you for catering for our specific needs
Please do something about the mosquitos
Thank you for hosting us on Friday. My daughter's birthday was such a success and your restaurant and staff were amazing.
Food is excellent, the vibe is chilled and relaxing... Service was a little slow but other than that it was a wonderful experience. All around good time...
We all had a fabulous evening!!
Excellent service and food overall.
Amazing dining for a very special birthday that was celebrated. My better half was very impressed and thank the staff for the service. We will definitely be back.

I was hosting guests from both South Africa and Europe, they can't stop talking about their experience throughout the hotel and more specifically the service and the food at the Big Easy.
Great food and fantastic service. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. My wife and I had a fantastic time and meal at The Big Easy!
had an ammazing time the staff was so helpful they bent over backwards to make us happy.... I didnt get their names but they were working in the evening on the 10 of August for a booking under Phumzile Mbinda who was coordinating a surprise dinner for Megans Bachelorette. 5 star service the food was amazing
Great service, good food, lovely atmosphere. The baby shower hosted at the venue met our expectations and the willingness of your staff to go out of their way to help where they can was too awesome!
Food was very disappointing and not worth the money ... Steak was burnt however it was taken back and replaced. we also had the Lamb Cutlets which was also burnt but we decided to just let it be. Will never recommend anyone to visit this establishment nor will i ever visit again. However the service was on point. Waitress and bartender very welcoming.
