Seafood Restaurants in Durban at Sibaya

If you’re looking for seafood restaurants in Umhlanga that support marine conservation, check out what’s on the menu at Sibaya.

Now you can enjoy your seafood with a side serving of good conscience when you dine at one of Sibaya’s restaurants in Durban, because of Sun International’s group wide sustainable seafood strategy. In line with the South African Sustainable Seafood Initiative (Sassi), Sun International has committed to serve only green-listed seafood at all of its 26 restaurants in South Africa.

Here’s everything you need to know about Sibaya’s commitment to marine conservation:

  • Sibaya’s Royal Court Grill, Aqua and Africa to Asia are all restaurants in Umhlanga that support marine conservation;
  • To ensure staff know their green-listed fish from their red-listed seafood, Sibaya has undertaken Sassi training for everyone;
  • To ensure all seafood on the menu at Sibaya is secured using sustainable fishing methods, executive chef Sanjeen Ramsuroop has personally met with all suppliers; and
  • All fish served at Sibaya’s restaurants in Durban draws from the Sassi green list.

Here’s what’s on the menu at Aqua, one of the top seafood restaurants in Durban:

  • Hot starters include delicious golden fish cakes, fresh Saldanha mussels and grilled baby squid;
  • If you’d like a crisp cold starter, the fresh slivers of Norwegian salmon are served with a rocket, capers, apple and horse radish dressing;
  • Follow up with a main course of Sassi-approved green-listed hake fillet, sole or pan-seared salmon; and
  • We recommend the Cajun spiced tuna medallions set on a creamy wasabi mash, roasted cherry tomatoes and herbed lemon butter sauce.

Sibaya’s commitment to marine conservation is just the tip of the iceberg of Sun International’s support for greenness. With South Africa currently experiencing severe water shortages, Sibaya has implemented a series of water-saving initiatives across the board, including push taps in the kitchens and staff toilets and a borehole project, which is nearing completion. Hot water has also been isolated in certain areas, and water pressure has been reduced throughout the complex.
