“Absolutely amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

In January 2012 we spent a couple of nights in Wilderness for holidays and a local suggested us this restaurant for dinner.
It was a real surprise and gift! Awesome atmosphere, awesome seafood, awesome service: simply an unforgettable experience! It's only bacuse we unfortunately live at about 10.000km far away from that place that we don't know if we will be able to come back...

“Food with personality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

Love this place! Set unusually next to a petrol station, the restaurant is packed with eclectic decor and curios, and the menu is the same - a mix and match affair of quality food and exquisite flavours. A must on the garden route (and their sister branch, Flava, down the road serves great coffee and lunch time wraps - the Moroccan chicken wrap is superb!).
