The Aubergine Bistro


Fine Dining

The love of food inspires everything at The Aubergine restaurant in Hillcrest. Award winning chef Chris Black radiates a passion for his vocation through the fine cuisine produced for his clients. The chic contemporary lines of the bistro, and its open window to the kitchen, as well as the skillful services of Chris and his staff, invite customers into the process of their food preparation. Chris’ warm and hospitable approach, and his attention to detail reveal his zeal for the delivery of the finest cuisine.

Chris’s success lies with his introduction of exciting variations, while retaining old favourites. He insists on only the freshest ingredients from the best sources, and gives people what they want at affordable prices. He works at the grill with his team and builds a relationship with each guest who enters his restaurant. Classic dishes are inspired by fresh produce and exceptional ingredients, and inspirations from some of the world’s greatest chefs are taken on board during Chris’ regular travels to explore these influences.

Chris is ranked amongst the top 10 highly creative, very individual chefs in the province, and The Aubergine has won awards every year since its opening. The wine list is excellent and as innovative as the menu, with sourcing being a priority.

Durban is richer for top quality chefs like Chris Black, with his cutting edge approach to cuisine. For the love of food, visit The Aubergine.
