This is the second restaurant of the famous "The Girls" in Wilderness. Good selection, well cooked and great service.

“Over Ambitious”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2012

The food in this restaurant is pretty good, but the service was average to say the least. They appear to be trying to be all things to all men, providing fast food burgers at the same time as gourmet cooking. The chef was arrogant enough to serve steak the way he thinks it should be cooked without asking how the customer wants it. Has potential, but we wouldn't go back.

“A real Foodie experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2012

This was one of the highlights of our holiday; a completely unprepossessing place, recommended to us because the sister restaurant was full. From the moment we arrived until we left, the service was attentive and focussed on the eating experience; the waiter gave us exceptional insights into the food and recommended to us imaginative dishes of the highest quality, accompanied by superb wine. We felt as if we had been treated like house dinner guests; well done, Flava - others can learn a lot from how you treat diners and present food.

My advice to Flava - expand! You deserve better than a tiny corner in Wilderness at the back of a Caltex garage!
