Located beneath London's largest Living Wall, recently replanted with more than 6,000 herbaceous plants to breathe life into our surroundings, bbar is a vibrant cocktail bar and restaurant in the heart of Victoria.
Our new menu plays homage to our heritage, with dishes that beautifully reflect the flavours of South Africa with a playful twist, from Boerewors Eggs Benedict with chilli chutney biltong to The Gatsby Sub, a Western Cape pulled BBQ short rib of beef.
Alongside this exceptional new menu, we have live mix sessions and DJ sets throughout the week, as well as contemporary signature cocktails created by our resident mixologists.
Just 15 minutes from Durban’s international airport, The Oyster Box and its surrounding area play host to a diverse variety of thriving cultures and enchanting natural beauty spots. Spend your honeymoon strolling along the Umhlanga Promenade and pass local landmarks, like the famous Lighthouse and Whalebone Pier, en route to the area’s beloved beaches and serene Umhlanga Lagoon Nature Reserve. Couples seeking an immersive cultural experience can venture inland and explore the Zulu Village or sample the cuisine cooked by the region’s large and culturally influential Indian population.
A restorative journey

Stay with us
All honeymoons should be savoured in a setting of comfort and luxury, and there are few settings more comfortable and luxurious than our famous Presidential Suite. On arrival at the airport, you will be greeted and transported to your suite (where you will find a bottle of Moët & Chandon waiting for you) by your own personal butler.
The thoughtful touches extend to the evening, where you can toast your new beginning with panoramic vistas of the shimmering coastline from your terrace (complete with plunge pool) as we serve you daily sundowners and canapés.
With unobstructed sea views
It is fair to say our award-winning dining institutions have passed the test of time. More than 70 years on, our Grill Room is still enthralling with its blend of continental and African elements. Authentic Gueridon service, where certain dishes are prepared tableside, brings a much-loved touch of intimacy to The Grill Room experience.
The Ocean Terrace, with its al fresco dining peppered by romantic starlight, is no less intimate. Seafood, wood-fired pizzas, and our famous Curry Buffet are all popular options that dovetail perfectly with views of the serene Indian Ocean.
Stay in a suite
Happily, it is not only our bars and restaurants that offer guests spectacular sea views. All of our suites come with their own plunge pools, so the vast oceanic vistas can be complemented with a splash of the aquatic on your own private terrace. For a honeymoon with an authentically local touch, our Sea-Facing Cabanas, embellished with African artworks and furnishings, set the perfect scene.Find out more
