We spent 5 days in the green route and one lunch we had in Flavq at wilderness. We enjoyed it a lot. The food was simply brilliant, the service was great and the chef Jacque stepped out of to kitchen an sang some opera songs in a brilliant way.mwe were amazed.mhe then came over to talk to us and tailored a great desert out of a fresh cake that just came out of the kitchen. It was amazing.
The place is decorated so nicely, everywhere you look is fantastic. Truly an amazing place which makes you want to come again and again.

We visited "Flava Cafe" with friends and it was a lovely, happy experience!! We sat inside as it was a bit chilly that evening but it is really lovely sitting outside on the upstairs deck when it is warm. As we have a guesthouse, we often send our guests to "Flava" and they always enjoy their meals. A great deal of thought has been given to the menu and the different combinations are very creative. The staff are friendly and helpful, the service was very good. Great experience!!

I can hardly find words to describe the freshness of the food,
the friendlyness of staff and kitchen chef Jaques (who came to our table to hear how our dinner was), the creativeness in interior design (everything fitted so well together it was a pleasure to look at), and most of all the great taste!!
The Flava team does definitely know how to create a dish with spices and herbs that tickles your palate in a most unique way!!
My boyfriend and I spent 3 nights in Wilderness, 2 of them at the Flava Cafe, enjoying dishes such as Peri-Peri-Prawns, watermelon salad with feta or amazing home-made gnocchi with cherry tomatoes, rocket, olives and pesto..
We even brought a bottle of Flava-made Peri-Peri-Sauce back to Germany with us.
We can say without exaggeration that the food at Flava Cafe was definitely the best food we've had for a very, very long time.
It made us smile. Go there! :)

Nice and casual daytime café located in the Wilderness village. Offering coffees, cakes, light lunches, etc. They also run an adjoining fish shop selling excellent fish and chips for lunch time take-aways. Same owners as The Girls, share the same kitchen, so food quality is excellent.
