“Unexpected excellent meal & good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

On a visit to PE in December 2013 my mother noted that she wanted to try a new place around the corner from their house in Walmer. Nouvo is owned and run by a couple; it is not only a restaurant, but also houses a hair and beauty salon - do not let this put you off! The restaurant service was friendly and efficient. Care is taken with the food (allow time for quality food to be prepared), incl. juices being made from scratch with fresh ingredients. I had the carrot juice which was great. Our waitress recommended the Chicken Fillet Burger (R45) and it was excellent. Wonderful to have REAL cheese sauce accompanying a burger made with quality ingredients. From the Chef's Specialty section of the menu my mother ordered the Halloumi & Fig (R30) which she said was delicious. Overall, I was very impressed with the food; it is clear that the focus is on quality and flavour. I highly recommend this place for an informal brunch or lunch; there is also some parking available on the property. It has a covered outside area in the front (the entrance) which is quite nicely protected from any wind and traffic (not as noisy as you'd expect given that it is at an intersection) and there are a few tables inside as well. The 6th Avenue Walmer Shopping Centre is also just across the road.
