We had lunch at the Flava Cafe during our visit to Wilderness and sat upstairs on the deck so that we could watch the world go by. The menu is quite comprehensive and I enjoyed a very tasty (and generous) chicken wrap. Service was prompt and cheerful.The staircase is decorated with joky signs and amusing slogans.

We stayed in Wilderness for a couple of days. Of all the restaurants we managed to visit Flava twice for dinner and once for breakfast. What a great experience. Service is excellent. The food to die for. The restaurant has a wonderful ambiance. Really the best restaurant in town. Highly recommendable.

Ate here on a recommendation. Had calamari as a starter and an oxtail special. The food was acceptable but nothing special. There is a good wine list. It was exceptionally busy but the service was steady and friendly. Good value for money.

Near perfect. Food is very flavorful and the service was great. The coffee mascarpone ice cream cake is amazing! Prices are OK, and they use high quality and fresh ingredients. The special of the day is excellent value for money. Great experience but not quite 5 stars.

Staff are very good - food even better . The décor is attractive and makes for interesting chatter. Menu is easy to navigate and the food is well prepared.The colder weather is compensated for by wall heaters and blankets. Prices are good and the service is great.

Thank Bathawk
