Good food and good wine is what this restaurant specializes in. Only the finest seafood made with the freshest ingredients is served and to go with that meal is the option of selecting one of the fine wines from the restaurant cellar. If you’re looking for a delightful seafood experience then the Fish and Wine Co. in Umhlanga should be your next stop.

*Review from www.iol.co.za*
When going out to a restaurant, there are three things that I highly value, the atmosphere, the service and the food. There needs to be a good balance between these three things. Only then does it become an establishment I would frequent regularly.
One of Durban’s relatively new restaurants, The Fish and Wine Co at the bourgeois The Pearls of Umhlanga, has to impress in order to survive in that very competitive neighbourhood. It needs to bring an amazing dining experience, while also serving guests delicious food. And it did just that when I recently went to the restaurant.
What’s different about this restaurant is its emphasise on pairing seafood and wine, something many similar establishments may not do. Their seafood and wine pairings are more than just a dry Chardonnay with a mild white fish, which is a relief. We now want more as consumers.
Fish and Wine Co head chef Rowan Larkin introduced us to their menu, which lists which dish complements each wine. This does help, especially for those who aren’t wine connoisseurs, but would still like to enjoy a perfectly paired meal. The first dish was a sushi platter. Full disclosure: I don’t like sushi or sashimi but, surprisingly, I enjoyed this and the wine helped cut through the fat, giving it a pleasant taste. The salmon sashimi was paired with a sauvignon blanc wine. The second dish was crispy hake goujons paired with Gewurztraminer wine and calamari with a balanced cinsaut wine.
Speaking to the owner, Robert Nunes, about the place, he said the restaurant had been operating for about three months but was officially launched three weeks ago at The Pearls.
