Very funky little cafe . We were met by friendly staff and offered some warm blankets to enjoy the rooftop tables. Waiter was friendly, enthusiastic and efficient. Food is reasonably priced. Both starters were very tasty (soup and bobotie spring rolls). I had another starter,chicken livers, and it was delicious. Just enough sweet, sour and peri peri. Chicken cape Malay... More

Bobotie spring rolls were yummy and the burgers, ostrich steak and ribs were just as good. I'd recommend it for a casual evening out but it's not your average good value spot as the prices are way up there and the trimmings are better than just fries on the side. We didn't leave hungry though, so we are not complaining.

Good quality and tasty food. Staff are friendly and welcoming. However once table has been cleared they seem to forget about that table and payment takes rather long.

The special was delicious, sirloin steak strips and pouched egg with hollandaise sauce. Eggs Benedict also looked good. Presentation of the food is really good and service is friendly. Good quality coffee.

Great little cafe, good service, good drinks, great food! Would have given 5/5 if the drink order wasn't taken wrongly... However, accidents happen and I would definitely recommend this café for breakfast/lunch/dinner to everyone passing through Wilderness!

What an amazing place!! We had the most delicious Pork Belly that can definitely be on the "World's Best" list!! The owners helped to serve us, which was special as they interacted with all their guests personally that made us feel very special. You will definitely see us again!!

We ate at Flava as it's sister restaurant was closed. Really glad we did as the food and service was excellent. The restaurant was very busy and staff were clearly pushed but this didn't m being attentive and very polite. We had the specials of ostrich and Fish which were perfectly cooked and delicious. Loved the touch of trivia cards... More

Nice choice on the menu, good selection of beverages and nice layout! The upstairs is very nice if not too windy, too cold or wet and the heaters help when it's chilly. Nice touch putting old Trivial Pursuit cards in a box on the table - helps while away the time while waiting for a waiter to eventually get around... More

Last night we enjoyed a meal at this place. We sat outside, little bit fresh and the heating lamp broke down, ok, unfortunately the cook turned the fresh tuna into some sort of chicken as it was cooked for too much, pity. Neverless the atmosphere was good, the wine perfect, and the staf very friendly. So all in all recommendable,... More
