About Big Easy Winebar & Grill Durban by Ernie Els

There is a lot going on in Durban, one of South Africa’s biggest and busiest destinations and home to the King Shaka International Airport. So, when Ernie Else (world-renowned golfer) envisioned a sophisticated wine bar and grill that provided a laid-back vibe in the heart of the hubbub, it was sure to be met with plenty of approval. Thus was born the Big Easy Durban.

Situated in the Hilton Hotel, this wine bar and grill is relaxed, stylish and focussed on a vibey experience. The menu reflects a farm-to-table approach to healthy, responsible dining, as well as dishes that adhere to fresh, seasonal ingredients. There are some locally popular dishes, as well as some innovative choices and a few of Ernie Els’ favourites.

The restaurant has a number of dining area features. There is the Chef’s Table, a private dining area, the open kitchen and a spacious bar. Patrons can sit indoors or outdoors on the upper and lower areas of the Terrace.

The wine list is particularly exciting. It showcases some of Ernie Els’ signature wines, as well as many other excellent South African labels; some of which are well known while others are newbies that are surprising the market with their originality and quality. His vintage wines date from 2002 to 2006 and are always very special to enjoy with friends and family. Of course, the Big Easy is fully licensed. So, local beers, craft beers, cocktails and spirits are also on offer.

The Big Easy retail shop has plenty of memorabilia as well as a collection of wines for sale. These make for lovely gifts for those back home.
